DISTANCE LEARNING: BROADCAST YOUR LESSONS
Did you know... that a teacher in one classroom can teach students miles away in another school district?
Problem: You have a limited budget and you need to teach Spanish in two separate schools within your district. The problem is that you can only afford to hire a single teacher. You want the best available teacher, but how can you afford it with budget cuts and a swelling student population? To make matters worse the schools are separated by almost 50 miles and the time spent driving between them will easily consume several hours each week. Seems like a waste to have to pay an expert to sit in a car instead of being in front of students. How can you afford the best teacher available, cover instruction requirements in both locations and ensure students are truly getting the best education possible?
Solution: An IP based Interactive Video Distance Learning System from VBrick
Capabilities: An IP based Interactive Video Distance Learning System is a powerful tool that can help you create a virtual classroom with no geographical boundaries: You can provide interactive instruction between classrooms even if the schools are on the far ends of the district
Classrooms are connected via the existing IP based network and video runs along side everyday data (such as email and web access) without impacting performance
The delivery is over the same network that is used for daily data-based activities – without any interruption to existing services
The instruction is delivered in real-time thanks to industry leading low-delay transmission of the audio and video
A “listen only” mode is also supported for users with desktop computers – both Windows based and MAC
Benefits: An IP based Interactive Video Distance Learning System enables: Your teachers to concentrate on classroom material rather than commuting from one school to another
Classes to communicate with one another in realtime with up to DVD quality that makes it appear you are in the same physical classroom rather than miles away
The ability for the teacher to reach multiple classrooms simultaneously while providing real-time communication and the highest quality video
The hiring of a single subject expert rather than two less qualified instructors
The classroom lecture to be recorded for future review and playback for students who may have been home sick that day of class
School systems to promote student diversity while eliminating costly transportation expenditures that are often common in large school districts
Result: An expert instructor, a diversified student population and greatly reduced travel expenditures!

VIDEO SURVEILLANCE: MONITOR HALLWAYS AND BUS STOPS
Did you know... that you can increase school security by monitoring hallways and bus drops right from the computer in your office?
Problem: You have minimal staff and are responsible for providing security for one of the largest districts in the area. The amount of time you will spend patrolling areas of non-interest due to travel between schools will be a large waste and you can’t afford a full-time security officer at each school. You have those several schools located at the edges of the district and which happen to have the largest student population. You have hundreds of hallways spread over a multitude of buildings across a thousand square miles of school district. What about all of those bus stops which see thousands of students dropped off and picked up each day? How can you possibly ensure the security of the students? Are you prepared in case of an emergency situation where you need to evacuate a building in the school district?
Solution: An IP based Security and Surveillance Video System from VBrick
Capabilities: An IP based Security and Surveillance Video System is a powerful tool that can help you increase school security: Deliver video from remote cameras over the existing IP network to be displayed on desktop PC’s and TVs
Monitor any area within district without having to leave the central security office
