In the pursuit of developing a sustainable classroom solution for their XCITE Center for Teaching and Learning, the University of California, Riverside (UCR) embarked on a journey to create an innovative space to test cutting-edge pedagogy and technology, with the goal of improving teaching and learning across different learning environments.
To achieve this, UC Riverside adopted ThinkHub visual collaboration software, creating a ‘Classroom of the Future’ that enhances the overall student learning experience and caters to the needs of professors as they seek new ways to engage students and help them overcome barriers to learning.
It all started with Bahram Mobasher, Professor of Physics at UC Riverside, and a grant from NASA. Professor Mobasher's vision for sustainable education led to a quest to create a classroom experience that would empower and inspire generations of learners. He recognized that the next step in education was data visualization – a powerful tool that could enhance scientific understanding and spark interest in complex subject matters.
The vast capabilities of the 27-foot interactive Planar video wall opened up new horizons for data display and exploration. Powered by ThinkHub, this video wall has the ability to accommodate multiple users and content of all sizes – facilitating real-time annotation and unlimited data sharing, adding to the richness of the learning experience.
