Aktru Hybrid Learning Auditorium is a software/hardware set that includes both the hardware for classrooms and the software integrating the university e-learning environment elements.
In spring of 2020, upon transition of educational process to full distance learning, several problems became evident regarding arrangement for such processes. Not all the teachers were ready to deliver lectures remotely.
The main problems were as follows:
- some teachers lack skills and knowledge of working in a digital environment
- some teachers lack necessary hardware for delivering lectures remotely
- the process solutions at hand, used to arrange for distance learning, are limited.
Information on the university timetable is entered into the system, which sets up automatic recording of lectures in the auditorium. The system ties the timetable to e-learning courses of teachers, located in the MOODLE e-university, and immediately after recording, the lecture becomes available for watching in the teacher’s course. During the lecture, the broadcast enables connecting remote students for interaction through a webinar system. All video lectures are also kept on the Aktru portal. As the entire speech of the teachers is converted into subtitles, it is possible to find any definition in the video stream by word search.
