With this state-of-the-art facility, the touchscreen solutions provider makes it possible for companies and institutes to organize real-time, interactive trainings and classes with co-workers, students or partners from all over the world. The virtual training room will also be used by the company to provide collaboration sessions and technical product trainings to its network of resellers and touchscreen users.
“At this moment, there are only a couple of these training facilities in The Netherlands”, says CEO Remmelt van der Woude. “The latest one is built here at our CTouch office in Eindhoven. What makes our virtual training room unique, is that we’ve been able to integrate our touchscreens in it. This adds an extra dimension to an interactive training, since everybody in the session is able to see what’s happening on the touchscreen, in real-time. With Barco’s weConnect SaaS solution as a backbone and the expertise that Kinly provided in facilitating the complete solution, I’m happy that we enable ourselves and other companies to effectively train, teach and coach teams in these challenging times.”
The demand for remote working and blended learning solutions has increased tremendously in the past few months due to the Covid-19 outbreak. With many companies currently preparing for a new way of working, another challenge is arising: how to bring interactivity and engagement into a virtual classroom environment?
“As a result of the Covid-19 outbreak, we see an increased demand from our customers - in education, government and companies for blended learning”, says Robert Blaas, Marketing Director Kinly Benelux. “However, what is missing in many of the solutions for blended learning are interactivity and engagement. Matters that are important in training and lectures. Together with Barco and CTouch, we have built a solution for remote education and training where interactivity and engagement are paramount. We believe that solutions such as the virtual classroom should not only be used today as an emergency solution, but should also contribute to the innovation of education and training.”
