Deliver classroom lessons for distance learning

Run classroom lessons for students in the room and connecting from home.

Schools need to run classrooms in a new manner to cater for students being both in the room and connecting from home or another location.

Providing the capability for lesson content to be shared and discussed in real time with students in the room and across a video conferencing platform is imperative.

This requires a video conferencing capable camera with microphone to pick up the teacher and ideally students in the room, or at least some audio from the room. The primary teaching display device should also be capable of supporting an ever-increasing number of online programs and applications.

Canon's solution: Interactive Whiteboards

The Aurora Starboard or SMART MX series interactive display panel with optional video conferencing camera and microphone. These can be wall mounted or on a portable trolley to be shared amongst rooms or teaching spaces. Choose from either the InFocus 4K or the InFocus 360 degree camera to pick up the teacher and the room simultaneously with built-in voice tracking.

  •  Provides a consistent and engaging teaching experience for students in the room and connected remotely
  •  Integrates with Google Suite and other online platforms already in use
  •  Use any video conferencing program as preferred
  •  Scan workflows can also be accessed as if in the office
  •  Unique solution with 360 camera
  •  Excellent return on on investment on the panel compared with consumer TVs and projectors

Digital delivery of documents and packages

Create continuity in mailrooms around document delivery and package handling

With the new reality of staff increasingly working from home, businesses may not have resources available to handle deliveries or distribute mail to the right people. Documents and packages are piling up and becoming a security risk at empty sites. Posted cheques are not being banked and contracts and important documents are back-logged.

Canon's solution: Digital Mailroom

  •  Manual labour is reduced and time-consuming activities are no longer sustainable
  •  The Digital Mailroom seamlessly integrates with back-end systems
  •  Remove physical document storage and have complete oversight of where every piece of mail or inbound document is in the workflow.
Make paper-based approvals an easy process

When working from home, getting the right person to approve documents quickly is difficult

With more workers now being based at home businesses may struggle to execute paper-based business processes.

Manual approval processes are becoming difficult to manage, and timeframes and visibility are becoming severely impacted due to staff not being available to make approvals happen quickly.

Businesses need to adopt digital workflow processes to ensure they operate effectively and timeframes are able to be met so as not to impact customer experience.

Organise virtual meetings and remote collaboration

Run meetings for people at work, connecting from home or remote locations.
