Brenau University Selects AGT to Lead Mondopad Implementation Across Multiple Campuses
All-in-One Mondopad Device Combines Video Conferencing, Content Sharing and Touchscreen Technology
Kennesaw, Ga. (June 4, 2015) - Applied Global Technologies (AGT), a proven provider of managed and visual collaboration solutions, today announces its selection as the lead audio visual integrator for a multi-campus InFocus Mondopad implementation at Brenau University, a private education institution with eight locations throughout Georgia and Florida. The InFocus Mondopad enables educators and students to present, annotate and collaborate on a large-format touchscreen display, which includes a Windows PC and built-in collaboration applications for video calling, digital white boarding and Internet browsing. Brenau University selected AGT for overall project management, installation and programming of nearly 60 Mondopads to maximize the school's instructional resources.
Upon receiving a $1.5 million grant to upgrade the institution's IT infrastructure, Brenau University settled on Mondopad to meet their needs for an all-inclusive device that would allow them to collaborate with students on campus and remote. AGT was chosen to support the implementation of nearly 60 Mondopads across multiple campuses and departments, and began the project by identifying Brenau's overall goals, objectives and budget. AGT managed the project by bringing in dozens of Mondopads in-house and handled Mondopad firmware updates, Mondopad software updates, Windows updates and configured the basic preferences settings requested by Brenau's IT Department. AGT also managed the design process, which incorporated Mondopads on carts, wall-mounted Mondopads with external amplifiers and ceiling speakers, and Mondopads integrated into existing audio visual systems. As a result of standardizing on Mondopads and working with AGT, Brenau has greatly improved their educational capabilities and has closed the gap in their online and remote learning environment.
"AGT's goal with any integration project is to provide clients with collaborative environments tailored to their specific needs, which is exactly what we were able to do for Brenau University," says Mark Cray, CEO of AGT. "With several unique learning environments needing an upgrade, we came up with a design and installation plan that included a quick turnaround time and seamless integration with Mondopad. Our team was able to get Brenau's Mondopads up and running with very little class disruption, allowing Brenau teachers and students to expand and focus on their education initiatives."
"AGT's audio visual integration expertise helped us achieve our goal of maximizing the school's instructional resources with forward-thinking technology that can reach educators and students on campus and off," says Dan Odom, instructional technology support technician at Brenau University. "[Mondopad] has allowed us to better collaborate, teach and provide information in a more efficient manner and it gives us great flexibility to offer it to our remote sites and online students. The customer service we have received from AGT during the Mondopad implementation has been top-notch. We look forward to working with AGT as they continue to support our campus and Mondopad environment."
AGT recently completed a case study detailing the Brenau University Mondopad implementation with onsite photos, which can be found here. To learn more about Brenau University's tech-savvy campus, please visit their website.
