In the education field, a great way to boost teaching efficiency and make learning more enjoyable is by utilizing a divisible classroom solution. One of the best ways to do that is with Q-NEX divisible classroom solution. In this article, we will introduce how teachers benefit of Q-NEX divisible classroom solution, and how teachers can use this solution to build a seamless connection teaching and learning environment.
1. The trend of divisible classroom
1.1 Pain point of traditional fixed classroom
Traditional classrooms, due to their fixed spatial functions, cannot be divided into different functional areas according to teaching needs, which often leads to rigid teaching modes, and to some extent affects students’ enthusiasm for learning. However, in recent years, there has been a rise in demand for classrooms, that can be partitioned into mainly two sections owing to their capacity to maximize the use of available space and make classrooms available to a greater degree of adaptability.
1.2 The case of divisible classroom on campus
Many campuses have successfully deployed and developed divisible classrooms. For example, Kansas State University has an application for a divisible classroom, which means that the space can be partitioned into two separate classrooms in order to make the most effective use of the space possible. This allows the space to be utilized for both educational and commercial purposes.
2. The space attribute of a divisible classroom
A divisible classroom solution can combine two independent classrooms with autonomous functions into a merged room, that can accommodate more people and share learning space to communicate and discuss with each other. It can also split a large space classroom into small classrooms with different functions. The divisible classroom offers several spatial functionalities, and it can also be utilized for academic conferences and other events.
- Tailored instruction: Tailored instruction creates a supportive, engaging, and inclusive learning environment that helps students thrive and realize their potential.
- Flexible grouping: Flexible grouping recognizes that students have diverse learning styles and preferences. Its primary objective is to provide an inclusive educational setting that appreciates and caters to these individual variations.
- Differentiated instruction: The objective of differentiated instruction is to provide a customized educational experience that optimizes student engagement and academic performance.
3. Layout of Q-NEX divisible classroom solution
With the integrated function of effective devices, Q-NEX divisible classroom solution divides one classroom into primary classroom and auxiliary classroom. There are a series of connected device layouts.
3.1 Component devices
Both primary and auxiliary classrooms are equipped with IQTouch Interactive touch screen, IQShare wireless presentation system, IQ Podium Interactive Pen Display, IQProjocter Interactive Projector, Motorized Projection Screen, IQSound Passive Speaker, Q-NEX Touch Panel, Handheld Wireless Microphone and IQView Document Camera. These audio visual transmission tools can be connected to the core NMP through highly adaptable HDMI, USB, audio, and serial interfaces, so as to maximize functional benefits through collaborative functions. And Q-NEX NMP connected the multi-media system of the primary classroom with auxiliary classroom, promoting the interconnection and exchange of different spatial information.
3.2 Partition sensor (optional)
This partition sensor can be used to detect the state of the partition door. When the partition door is closed, the sensor will transmit a signal to the NMP AV control system, causing it to switch to two independent room modes, which can be used separately. When the partition door is opened, the sensor will similarly send a signal to the NMP, causing both classrooms to switch to the divisible classroom mode, where the auxiliary classroom mirrors the audio and video content of the primary classroom.
3.3 Linked to the same LAN
Both the primary classroom and auxiliary classroom are under the same LAN network, so as to seamlessly resource and smoother screen sharing between primary classroom and auxiliary classroom.
4. The main challenge of divisible room and technology support
Employing a divisible classroom layout comes with a number of complications. In previous articles, we have summarized several challenges of a divisible classroom based on in-depth survey.

Despite the fact that a divided classroom must contend with integration challenges, soundproofing problems, and other similar obstacles, the most significant difficulty that this kind of space entails is the necessity of flexibility to support AV applications.
By partnering with Q-NEX, you can overcome the challenges of divisible classrooms and create a versatile, efficient, and productive learning environment. Below you’ll see how Q-NEX divisible classroom solution benefits you.
5. The benefits of Q-NEX divisible classroom solution
Compared with other educational technology solutions, Q-NEX divisible classroom solutions have many irreplaceable advantages.
5.1 Broadcasting of synchronous and asynchronous audio visual contents
Q-NEX Networked Media Processor (NMP) allows the transmission of audiovisual materials from elementary classrooms to auxiliary classrooms. Each room has a basing controller. The use of a centralized control system can successfully meet the demands of both synchronous and asynchronous screen content presentation. The same media content is being played simultaneously on all of the displays and speakers across the rooms. Both rooms have the potential to be used independently or operated under a unified control.
5.2 Management of students’ interest and participation
Those who are familiar with the education sector recognize that, although the main obligation of instructors is to convey information and to make it accessible for students to acquire more relevant information and abilities, management is also a crucial element that is present throughout the whole process of teaching. If a teacher is not a good manager, it is difficult to push pupils to properly grasp and acquire new information. This is especially true if the instructor is an educator.
The NSW government’s Classroom management: Creating and maintaining positive learning environments states that from Years 7 and 8 (5.3%) to Years 11 and 12 (40.5%) in Victoria, Australia, instructors reported a lack of involvement as the most problematic student conduct.
So a successful management of the classroom is one factor that leads to successful educational results.
Q-NEX divisible classroom solution enables teachers to effectively manage teachers through spatial segmentation, it can lead a student-centered learning， transforming the role of teachers from mere knowledge imparters to designers, helpers, and motivators of learners’ learning.
5.3 One–touch panel control
Even while a high degree of intelligence has become somewhat of a trend in the area of education, the complicated operating techniques of intelligent gadgets sometimes discourage many educators from using them. For instance, some operation settings are hard to locate, some operation guidelines have ambiguous meanings that make it challenging for instructors to comprehend, and other operation teachers have followed the directions but have not gotten any kind of response from the system even though they have done so.
Therefore, Q-NEX technology has an in-depth awareness of the ambiguity and discomfort that educators experience while utilizing devices with intelligence. As a consequence, the solution is also devoted to searching for a solution to this matter of complicated processes.
For instance, the Q-NEX Touch Panel is a 7-inch capacitive touchscreen that satisfies the requirement for one-tap control, and it also features an ultra-thin aluminum alloy. There are classroom management applications pre-installed. It is not only able to regulate the modes, temperature, and modes of the air conditioner, but it can also control the on/off status of the light, projectors, and other equipment that are present in the divided classroom The touch panel is also an easy entry for teachers to switch the divisible classroom mode.
All in all, the divisible classroom stands for the future of education technology for multi-functional classrooms owing to its central integration, unified control, and efficient interaction. You will be able to revolutionize classroom communication, and improve students’ overall learning experiences if you equip your classroom with Q-NEX NMP and make it a smart classroom through Q-NEX divisible classroom solution.
