Business Environment Challenges
Denmark Technical College is a public, historically Black technical college located in rural Bamberg County, South Carolina. The pandemic presented new challenges for the college but keeping students safe was the top priority. To maintain social distancing standards, a maximum of 50 percent occupancy was permitted in each classroom. The director of IT services, Michael Myers, reached out to Sharp in search of a hybrid classroom solution with a web-based videoconferencing system for the upcoming semester. DTC had an unwavering commitment to finding a solution that did not sacrifice the learning experience or class participation for remote students; therefore, Michael had a checklist of requirements that Sharp needed to fulfill. He also wanted to ensure that any new technology investment would be a viable solution beyond the pandemic.
"I was worried student participation would fall off, but I’m happy to see students are learning and participating no matter where they are.”
