On November 17, 2022, the traditional Meeting of teaching staff of «KROK» University took place. This year, they were held in a special format: for a sense of greater cohesion, lecturers-participants were gathered offline in a new interactive audience, which made it possible to connect online participants as well.

It is to be noted that there are already several such interactive classrooms at «KROK» University, and they appeared precisely at the demand of time. Powerful equipment (projector, web cameras, interactive whiteboard and a powerful computer) was purchased at the expense of a grant from one of the international projects in which our University is participating. With the help of a projector, you can demonstrate all the necessary information to the audience, a powerful PC processor helps to simultaneously reproduce visuals on the board offline and online.

Kuchko, Rector of «KROK» University, N.Litvin, First Vice-Rector, V.Holovan , Director of Information Technologies Department. presented an interactive classroom, demonstrated the full range of functionality of its work and key technological capabilities, and talked about the techniques of recording classes for online.
