Optimas School is a system that combines hardware and software to optimise and achieve the best educational performance in any computer classroom. It is a useful system for learning any academic discipline in any classroom, whether it is an educational centre, a public or private institution, a language centre of any university or institution, academies, etc. It was originally developed by the company Roycan, but it is currently part of Soroll Electrònic’s catalogue of educational solutions.
It allows high levels of communication in the classroom and allows the teacher to have everything under control. The teacher can also use an infinite number of resources and didactic material, transmitting audio and video in real time only through the computer network.
The best known feature of our Optimas School is its ability to create a real digital language laboratory. However, it is a system designed to teach any subject or academic discipline thanks to its interactivity in the classroom.
Real-time and high-quality broadcast of audio and/or video signals, using solely the classroom computer network. Up to ten simultaneous broadcast channels can be configured, through which the teacher can send different audiovisual resources to different groups of students. The emitted signals can come from both analogue and digital sources.
Oral communication between students and the teacher, essential for working on oral expression and comprehension. Up to eight simultaneous work groups can be created, as well as conversation pairs, whether consecutive or random. Students interact through their microphones and the teacher can listen to them, talk to them, or enable the help system.
Incorporation of different tools for the teacher to manage and administer the classroom dynamically and individually. They can request student names and view them on their monitor, and choose how they want to get an overview of the classroom. Teachers can access custom profiles to store classroom settings.
Higher levels of discipline as the teacher has total control of what is happening in the class. They can see the screens of the students, as well as listen to them and record their output. With remote control, they can turn on and off student computers, lock them, run programs automatically or deny applications.
The student communication equipment comes in the form of a board that can be screwed or recessed into the furniture, with tactile buttons for volume and an auxiliary USB port to interface with other external devices.
The communication equipment also incorporates buttons that allow functions to be automated depending on the activity and has advanced utilities for language learning, as well as translation and interpretation functions.
Optimas School portable format that allows the reuse of the equipment in different classrooms thanks to the integration of the communication equipment in a USB flash drive. It facilitates the interconnection with any type of computer, including laptops.
Integrated within the Optimas software, DLL is a complete state-of-the-art digital recorder-player.
In addition to all the interactive activities that the teacher can prepare during his classes, Optimas allows the creation of multimedia projects to promote learning skills based on listening, speaking, reading and writing. The teacher can decide whether the students work in a guided way, in exam mode or if each student can work autonomously and at their own pace.
DLL allows the use of both audio sequences (songs, speeches, interviews, etc.) and video sequences (music clips, films, documentaries, etc.).
