CCC Distance Learning System
Central Community College has campuses in Grand Island, Columbus, and Hastings, Nebraska; and learning centers in Holdrege, Kearney, and Lexington.
The purpose of this project was to create audio-video systems that enable distance learning between classrooms and select conference rooms at the three main campuses and at the learning centers.
AVANT ACOUSTICS provided the following services:
- Audio-visual systems design
- On-site system commissioning, including instructor and technical staff training and assistance during the initial uses
AVANT ACOUSTICS designed distance learning and conferencing systems that allowed automated functionality and ease-of-management with remote access control over the college network. All in-room functions were set up to work automatically with automatic microphone mixing and automatic camera tracking. This enables instructors to walk into the classroom and begin teaching without worrying about the AV technology.
The process of recording classes was also streamlined through implementation of an automated process. Video archiving and playback included both the speaker and presentation at full resolution with searchable metadata tags and user comments.
