We know how difficult it can be to manage an entire multimedia classroom. That’s why we created Q-NEX NMP—a networked media processor that works with your existing school’s electronic facilities and media players to automate the process of managing them.
Q-NEX NMP is designed to make your life easier as a school administrator, freeing you from the hassle of manually identifying and controlling all of your electronic facilities and media players in one central location. The Q-NEX NMP allows you to identify these devices by name and position, so you have a clear picture of what’s going on at all times. You can then control them remotely through the Q-NEX web console!
Have you ever had to go to each classroom in your building to turn off the lights? Or walk from one building to another, just to shut down an unused computer?
We’ve all been there. And it’s a waste of time and energy—something we don’t have a lot of as teachers. That’s why we created—a smart classroom automation system that lets you remotely control your devices using an app on your phone. It allows for quick, easy remote control of any device connected through our system. So, instead of having to leave your classroom and make the trek across campus when you’re done with class (or even during!), you can simply turn off devices with the touch of a button! You’ll get more time back to focus on what matters most: your students’ learning experience!
Smart classrooms are great because they give students access to different types of technology. However, if you are a teacher or administrator who has to worry about turning on your smart classroom devices every day, it can be frustrating. Luckily, there is a solution!
If you run a smart classroom at your school, you can set up the projector or interactive flat panel to turn on automatically every day before the first class begins. This makes it easy for students and teachers to use the device without having to wait for an IT person to get it ready.
If you have an air-conditioner in your smart classroom, you can also set it up to power on automatically when it gets hot outside. You’ll never worry about having to remember to turn on or off the AC again! This is especially helpful if you are not in the classroom when students are using the device. For example, if you have an interactive whiteboard set up in your classroom, you can set it to turn off automatically after a certain amount of time has passed. This makes it easy for teachers to focus on teaching and not worry about turning off their equipment at the end of class.
Video switching is a useful tool to have in your classroom. It allows you to use two screens in one display, or two separate displays with different content. Here are some of the ways you can use video switching in your classroom.
1) Two screens sharing the same display: This is perhaps the most common use of video switching. You can use this mode to show an image on one of your screens and courseware on another, so that students can see both at once.
2) Two separate displays with different content: This is similar to the first option, but instead of using one screen for courseware and one for an image, both screens are used for their own purposes – one showing an image and the other showing courseware from teacher’s PC.
This is useful when you need to show something on your computer to a group of students and teachers at the same time without having to constantly switch between screens.
You could also choose this mode if you want your students’ attention split between two things at once (for example, if you had a live demonstration going on with a PowerPoint presentation).
Today we’re going to be doing something a little different. Instead of gathering in the auditorium to watch the live speech from the principal on the classroom TV, we’re going to watch it right here in class. We’ll still have our normal lesson plan for this period, but we’ll also be watching together so that you can hear any announcements that are made during his speech.
And if you’ve been wondering what’s going on with all these new devices in your classroom—don’t worry! They’re here to help us make learning more fun and engaging than ever before. One of the most useful features of the Q-NEX app is its ability to schedule a broadcast task. This feature allows teachers and administrators to set up a routine that will play at specific times, like the school bell or music at lunchtime. This can be done for individual classrooms, or for larger groups of students.
For example, an admin might want to play music during lunch. With this feature, they could easily set up a scheduled broadcast task that would play a song from their playlist on every device in the cafeteria during lunch time.
