Atrium works with RM on interactive whiteboard training

RM, a provider of ICT and services to UK education, is using Atrium's vcPresenter presentation authoring software in a training course designed to develop the skills of primary school teachers using new interactive whiteboard technology.

Atrium worked with RM to develop 'CPD Workshop - Making the most of your interactive whiteboard', a presentation-based course that provides training on the wide range of activities that teachers can conduct using the new whiteboard technology.

Katherine Wyatt, product manager at RM Learning, said: "CPD Workshop was designed so that training could be carried out by either schools or Education Authorities at a level and pace that suits them."

"The course is made up of modules with presentation-supported video content, as well as training notes and hands-on activities, and schools and education authorities can create their own bespoke courses for their teachers to be run over the course of an afternoon or longer, depending on the time available to them. The flexibility of the modules means that everyone can get what they want out of the training."

Phil Dodds, group sales director at Atrium Communications, said: "RM is providing essential support to help teachers educate their pupils more effectively.

"New technology such as the interactive whiteboard makes teaching young children easier, but the teachers themselves must know how to use the technology, and how to get the most out of all the functionality available.

"The fact that RM is using our vcPresenter technology is indicative of the continuing trend for video-based learning across a wide range of industries. It is a highly accessible medium for trainers to get their material across to their trainees, and can easily be tailor-made to meet the needs of any organisation in any market."
