The internet is bringing more and more opportunities for education with new technologies and faster bandwidth. Dental education is following the trend and you see more universities and teaching institutions adopting long distance learning. In primary dental education this can be out of necessity, with universities complimenting each other's unique specialities. In continuing education the physical distance between the teachers and students can increase even further, often spanning across continents.
The distribution of learning materials is easy through the web and today's increased bandwidth, make uploading and watching videos fast and easy. However there still remains a need for live communication: teachers want to show a procedure live to a web-based audience and similarly they want to evaluate and support their students who are working remotely. For both of these cases it is not only important that the image streams well, but also that voice can be well understood.
Futudent has developed a solution that provides a great image from the exact point of view of the student or educator and also enables clear voice and text communication. Simultaneously everything is recorded at the same time, allowing review of the procedure afterward for continued learning or work evaluation.
