The initial response to the Digital Health Hub has been extremely positive. The upgrade to the sound system and introduction of LCD displays has dramatically improved the quality of the student experience. The near DICOM standard of the Panasonic LCD displays also to be a a valuable addition for students of Radiography, required to work with diagnostic imaging.
Perhaps the biggest impact to the environment is the inclusion of the wireless casting.
The wireless casting is a fantastic addition to the space and has helped us to change the way we teach, particularly though the use of AR tools which can be managed locally in a very effective and simple way.

An enhanced student experience
I think the student experience in this room is going to be absolutely amazing. The ability for them to use their own technology to find their own information and then share that information freely within the group is probably going to be the biggest thing. Also being able to project our own high-tech, cutting-edge augmented reality tools, so that each student group can do something different with it, is going to be tremendous.
Katie Maddock, MPharm course director
The project was successfully delivered within a six week period and the University eagerly anticipates the full integration of the room into the programme for the new academic year. Work has already begun developing the AR technology to make the most of the new space and we look forward to seeing the results.
