I am always looking for the latest technology that helps me deliver lectures and
make them more engaging for students, and I found it in AVerVision CP300!”
- Rudolf Bider, Senior Culinary Instructor, Royal Academy of Culinary Arts
Chef Rudolf Bider, the Senior Culinary Instructor at Royal Academy of Culinary Arts
in Amman, Jordan, found that teaching culinary theory using the
AVerVision CP300 visualizer (document
camera) brought about greater student interaction in the classroom
and made lessons more enjoyable. Prior to introducing the
AVerVision CP300 to the class, tracking subtle changes in meat was a tedious
procedure. Now, AVerVision CP300
has injected vitality into theory classes through screening the vivid real-time
video of textural changes in meat such as fat, protein and the meat fibers after
it is cooked on the interactive board already in place in the classroom.
Not only that, AVerVision CP300
has allowed students to view Chef Bider’s demonstrations with ease. Previously,
Chef Bider had to pass the ingredients that he used in a lesson among students on
a plate, which was rather time-consuming and students became easily distracted.
After introducing AVerVision CP300
to the class, he now has the wherewithal to show students these supplies on the
screen and avoid the hassle of disrupting class.
Also, students used to crowd around him in order to see the kinds of apparatuses
used in the beverage preparation procedure during his beverage preparation classes.
Now, with the help of AVerVision
CP300, he can show students the process of making various beverages and
highlight the tools needed in the procedure, all with students remaining in their
seats. He does so simply by directing
AVerVision CP300’s camera at the equipment, which in turn is projected
on the interactive board for all students to see.
Using AVerVision CP300 in
classes at the Royal Academy of Culinary Arts has enabled instructors to more efficiently
display the numerous types of food such as mushrooms, fruits, vegetables & meats
and distinguish the difference between these varieties of produce and meats by zooming
in to see their fibers. In addition, it also helps students to differentiate between
fresh, frozen or dried produce/meats through highlighting them. Best of all, the
students get to view all these from the comfort of their own desks.
