Dubai-based e-learning institution e-TQM College has announced the successful implementation of an e-learning suite with rich media streaming and archiving. The technology will allow e-TQM College to conduct live virtual classes by streaming real-time lectures on the web to thousands of students from across the region with high quality full video, data and voice capability. “Our e-learning suite uses digital technologies and high performance environments to deliver, support and enhance teaching, learning, assessment and evaluation,” said Dr Aseem Gupta, chief visionary of Visionaire. Gupta added: “e-TQM College is one of the first institutions to take advantage of creating an integrated delivery mechanism, which can benefit thousands of students located anywhere on the globe using uninterrupted and secure access to both the live and archived lectures on the e-TQM College website.” Connected students can raise on-line queries via a simultaneous Q&A session, which the teacher may choose to answer live, or answer later one-to-one. To create a one-to-one experience, Visionaire has implemented an integrated multi-point conferencing system for smaller groups for the delivery of intensive tutoring. The classroom environment at the college has been further enhanced allowing the teacher to move around the room in a natural way with the camera system automatically tracking movement. The system also enables video services to be accessed through 3G mobile devices via a 3G gateway opening the possibility for e-TQM College to use this as a medium of delivery in the near future. Dr Mansour Al Awar, Vice-President of e-TQM College said: “Owing to the growing popularity of the internet as a learning platform, e-TQM College has always been at the forefront in promoting e-learning across the Middle East. “Visionaire’s impressive track record and ability to deliver technologically superior solutions that build on our existing IP and network platform were the main drivers for us to partner with them in this pioneering initiative,” explained Al Awar. “With the implementation of this cutting-edge solution we are now prepared to address the existing challenges in e-learning as we further continue to raise the bar and pave the way for future institutions in the region,” Al Awar concluded.
