Reflect on teaching, improve your teaching level, and help teachers grow.

2. Promoted classroom reform on campus.
The lecture capture classroom can record classroom teaching activities in an all-round, multi-angle, and three-dimensional manner. The use of the recording and broadcasting classroom also has obvious advantages for teachers to speculate and improve the preparation, teaching, interaction, adaptability, and other aspects of classroom teaching. It has promoted the digital construction of campuses and the reform of classrooms and accelerated the pace of development of modern educational technology.

3. Reserve and share high-quality teaching resources.
Traditional teaching is centered on educators and mainly on imparting knowledge. There is insufficient interaction between teachers and students and between teachers and students, resources are isolated, and teacher resources and school-based resources are wasted. The construction of a lecture capture classroom can reserve high-quality teaching resources, and then share them through live broadcasts, complete knowledge inheritance or conduct inter-school curriculum exchanges, promote educational equity, and improve the quality of school teaching and talent training on a larger scale.

In addition, with the help of Q-NEX, the recording and broadcasting classroom system has changed the recording method of traditional open classrooms under the original old model. In the past, classroom recording required dedicated recording and professional editing. The intelligent lecture capture classroom completes all these tasks automatically, so that the whole process is unattended, which reduces the pressure and interference caused by the course recording.
