The Royal Agricultural University has recently purchased a Tourtalk TT 40 tour guide system to enable lecturers to be clearly heard.
Unlike most universities, our students don’t spend all their time in the lecture hall. We need to get out in all kinds of environments and in all weathers – and that brings unique challenges.
Tourtalk is a portable wireless audio system which we hope to start using at Harnhill this year. It is a hands-free presenting system that enables lecturers to be clearly heard across a field, yard or riding ring.
Tourtalk can be used for teaching up to 100 students outdoors in a hailstorm in February, in a lambing shed, or in a milking parlour. It means students won’t miss a word and lecturers don’t have to shout – making it a versatile and valuable teaching tool.
The RAU is in the top five UK universities in terms of the number of students with dyslexia and other learning challenges that it supports.
This system, with its personal volume controls for each user, will help to make speakers clear and intelligible, aiding concentration and understanding.
The lecturer wears a lightweight headband microphone plugged into a wireless Tourtalk transmitter.
Each student is issued with a wireless Tourtalk receiver with earphone, to hear the lecturer's message.
Royal Agricultural University was established in 1845 and is recognised nationally and internationally as a leader in the delivery of education, research and consultancy, in and relating to, agriculture and the rural environment. For more information please visit their website here.
The Royal Agricultural University is the fourth university to purchase a Tourtalk tour guide system this year. Tourtalk systems are used for many different applications including campus tours, archeological field trips, simultaneous interpretation for overseas students, and even for hearing assistance at a dental school!
The system comprises of two Tourtalk transmitters and ninety-eight Tourtalk receivers. The complete system is stored and recharged in just four compact brief cases.
