- Increased demand for distance education
Growth in digital content for education
Online education has become an integral part of academic curricula of colleges. Many universities in North America, Europe, and APAC are building their own databases and academic curricula on digital platforms to facilitate easy accessibility of study materials for students.
The emergence of e-readers and tablets within various price ranges followed by the commoditization of smartphones has enhanced the platform for digital educational publishing. In addition, adaptable digital platforms and uninterrupted access to the Internet enable students to integrate digitally published content with other forms of learning. These factors have been instrumental in establishing and ensuring the sustained long-term growth of the market.
Schools have implemented digital resources in various ways to support teaching and learning. Electronic grade books, learning games, digital portfolios, and real-time assessments of students and teacher performance are some of the emerging ways that boost the power of learning through digital content. These developments should promote the adoption of document cameras in schools and institutions.
Horizontal learning support
Horizontal learning support primarily focuses on the development of knowledge, skills, and behavior to strengthen the key competencies. Document camera applications are not limited to specific subjects and learning modules. This device can be used by educational institutions for cross-disciplinary knowledge. Visual learning enhances knowledge sharing for both technical and non-technical subjects.
The ability of document camera to support visual learning without relying on a PC, unlike a smart board is the most important factor driving this form of learning support. The technical specifications of document cameras allow easy readability of text in any font size due to the zoom feature. These features are extremely beneficial to teach topics that involve scanning granular details such as map locations, which otherwise is a tedious job for teachers and students. Thus, many educational institutions catering to K-12 and higher education are investing resources in procuring good quality document cameras.
Increased demand for distance education
Distance learning offers opportunities for learning to people across the world, especially those who find it difficult to attend universities because of financial, geographical, or time constraints. Many students prefer distance education courses to traditional education due to the low-costs. Distance education also gives flexibility while learning as it is less bound by time and location.
Distance learning is widely being adopted in the higher education sector with more universities offering online courses and adding a variety of courses frequently. The evolution of virtual communication platforms such as web conferencing services has empowered educational institutions to provide blended learning. This is done by allotting a certain number of hours for virtual classroom sessions, ensuring timely completion of courses.
“Institutions imparting distance education provide lecture videos to students to help them complete the respective courses. This will drive the document camera for smart classroom market,” says Jhansi.
