Using Webex Kits to Revolutionize
Archbishop Stepinac High School
with a New Stem Lab
More Than Remote Learning
The COVID-19 pandemic forced many schools and students to quickly adapt to a fully remote environment. This is what first drew Archbishop Stepinac High School’s attention to the idea of a “Smart Classroom.”
However, as they researched their remote learning options, they realized these classrooms could offer more than just a remote environment. With a smart classroom, students can:
- Review recorded lectures after school
- Benefit from guest lecturers from across the globe
- Attend class from home if they are unwell
- Access collaboration tools
- Record transcripts of lessons
"We take enormous pride in Stepinac’s preeminence in curriculum innovation and technological advances, the critical underpinnings to a successful 21st-century high school education that will continue Stepinac’s tradition of shaping our students to become tomorrow’s leaders in their professions and in their communities."
Stepinac President Rev. Thomas Collins
The Value of Webex Room Kits
New capabilities enable even smarter meetings, smarter presentation capabilities, and smarter room and device integrations—further removing the barriers to usage and deployment of video in small to medium-sized rooms.
Powerful, integrated cameras deliver intelligent view capabilities, such as automatic framing and speaker tracking; automatic noise suppression reduces lecture disruptions.
Webex Room Kits can support dual content sources, wireless sharing, and 4K content to ensure high-quality collaboration and sharing.
People count for usage metrics and resource allocation; tight integrations with screens to enhance user interactions; APIs and macros allow lecture personalization.
Built for both cloud and on-premises deployment, protecting your investment long-term.
