Shaping The Higher Education Landscape In Australia

Universities across Australia continue to embrace SMART Technologies, investing heavily in interactive technologies and new software across many faculties to  creating truly innovative learning spaces. Many universities have used SMART for a very long time, and today are upgrading to the newest options in order to give their students and educators the best, most reliable and connected experiences possible. 

Other NSW universities have embraced SMART within their Early Years Centres,  creating innovative learning spaces while modelling best practices for teaching and the creation of early learning centres across the region. 

In Victoria universities have also standardized on SMART. As leading learning institutions, they have seen the development of SMART's collaborative tools aligning with their own learning philosophy. As universities look to design out the front of the room, creating an ecosystem that enables collaboration and interactivity anywhere and on any screen has never been easier. 

The recent release of the new Podium has also gained interest with many universities who are looking to implement this tool to enhance the capabilities of their lecturers.  One highly reputable, higher-education institution outside of Melbourne has enabled dozens of their lecture hall theaters and large classrooms with the SMART Podiums. The small form-factor device is ideal for professors and educators who want to engage directly with their audiences, while also annotating within all file types. The video-out capability of the SMART Podium duplicates the image to any sized screen based on the dimensions and requirements of the learning space.
