Audio Visual Technology a Bright Spot on Campus

From eSchool News staff and wire service reports

At least half of the nation's higher-education classrooms will be equipped with digital projectors, control systems, audio or video conferencing equipment, or other audio-visual (AV) technology within the next five years, a new study projects.

Conducted by Acclaro Growth Partners, an independent research firm, on behalf of InfoComm International, the trade association representing the AV industry, the study polled nearly 300 instructional technology buyers at colleges and universities across the country. It found the number of classrooms with AV equipment has doubled every year for the past five years--and is expected to continue to double annually through 2010.

Much of the demand for AV equipment in colleges and universities is the result of new classroom construction, researchers found. The total number of higher-education students in the United States is expected to peak in 2008, creating a boom in the construction of new facilities. Presentation technology is being integrated into these new classrooms to reflect a shift in educational methods, the study said, including the increased use of collaborative techniques and project-based assignments.

AV technology also is being used to attract increasingly tech-savvy students and to accommodate distance-education programs, which expand both the reach and revenues of academic institutions.

"We are pleased to see the higher-education community embracing AV technology," said Randal A. Lemke, executive director of InfoComm International. "It is encouraging to see colleges and universities looking at AV as a long-term investment that is enhancing the quality of education while reducing its cost, eliminating academic bottlenecks, and assisting recruitment efforts."
