Lector Podium is a comfortable workstation, namely an arm-chair with two embedded tablets and a variety of sensors, aiming to assist educators during their mission of disseminating knowledge. Hidden LED lights permit educators to light-up the chair using color indicating various situations (e.g. lights of orange color indicate that students are expected to submit their assignments). Additionally, a force resistive sensor allows the environment to know whether someone is seated in the arm-chair, while embedded microphones support voice recognition, and directional speakers enable the delivery of sound notifications targeting the educator.
It includes software that enables the educator to monitor and operate every feature and artifact of the intelligent classroom. The tablets host various applications that enable educators to access educational material, get a comprehensive overview of the class (i.e. classroom statistics, attendance, submitted assignments), monitor student attention and provide means for the seamless, unobtrusive supervision of the students and overall management of the educational process.
