SEOUL, Oct. 19 (Korea Bizwire) — With remote lectures becoming more common in COVID-19 era, an increasing number of universities are furnishing themselves with a variety of broadcasting equipment and large-sized monitors for online lectures and meetings.
At Soongsil University, a large-sized curved screen 10 meters wide and 1.5 meters tall is installed on the back wall of a lecture room.
The university, which resumed face-to-face lectures from Oct. 6, set up this lecture room for online and offline-integrated lectures.
Even the students who attend the lectures through a virtual meeting program at home can feel like they are actually attending the lectures in person through the monitor.
Seoul National University recently set up three ‘unmanned virtual tracking lecture rooms.’ The cameras installed on the ceiling automatically follow the motion of the professors and take videos by moving from side to side.
Unlike in the past when such videos were taken manually by assistants or employees, the university developed an unmanned video-recording system.
Kyungnam University and Pusan National University established ‘digital lecture rooms’ this year, enabling students to attend lectures in a small group of five or six, as well as to monitor and share lecture materials.
