weConnect wireless collaboration fuels learning at King's College
Posted on Monday, September 18, 2017
  King's College Collaboration Lab
King’s College has been dedicated to transforming the hearts and minds of students through its commitment to the art and science of teaching. The William G. McGowan School of Business offers innovation in program development, and a forward-thinking, personalized approach to education.

“We’ve wanted to develop this level of teaching environment for several years, but didn’t feel the industry was where it needed to be,” said Ray Pryor, Managing Director of User Services for King’s College. “When Barco developed weConnect, we felt we had finally found the right product.” 

Wireless without lag
weConnect is an easy-to-use system that allows students and teachers to bring their own devices to the classroom and wirelessly present their information – applications, graphics, video, and audio – on the main classroom display. The solution replaces hardwired machines and enables any classroom to become a collaboration lab.

Students give it two thumbs up!
“While the technology needs to be easy-to-use and reliable, the real litmus test is student engagement – do they like it and will they use it?” commented Barry Williams - Dean, McGowan School of Business at King’s College. The answer is a resounding 'yes" according to two business school students:

“I enjoyed that it felt like a completely interactive experience and kept everyone focused and engaged because of the multiple screens in front of everyone!” Hanade Abualburak

“Having multiple computer screens displaying the work of different groups/students was extremely compelling. It was interesting to see different takes on similar ideas and multiple screens made it easy to compare and contrast the different pieces of work.” Kerri Carbaugh
