Continuous teacher training and improvement is a key requirement in schools today and this system was developed to allow teachers to record their own lessons and have lessons observed live by their peers, without affecting the pupils in the classroom.
IBEX designed all of the system electronics, embedded software, PC software and server software.
The mobile camera unit incorporates a Pan Tilt & Zoom high definition camera along with WiFi connection to the system server, radio microphone receiver and high sensitivity room microphone.
A built in screen provides a user interface for configuration and live video preview when setting up to self-record a lesson.
RFID technology is used to identify teachers and authorise camera recordings.
Server-side software was developed to receive, store and replay streamed video and audio feeds from multiple cameras used throughout a school.
Hand held event tag unit, allowing teachers to tag positive and negative teaching and pupil moments during a lesson and quickly find them when the lesson is watched back later.
IBEX also developed a Windows PC app that provides a huge range of functionality. Teachers can view live camera feeds when observing and control the cameras, watch previously recorded lessons, share recordings within the school, tag events during lessons, view other teachers tagged events and generate reports and statistics for heads of departments.
