For our programmes offered in small groups (maximum 10 people) and because our objective is to be able to guarantee the flexibility and quality of our training, we have set up equipment in our Media Lab that is adapted to phygital* courses.

The mixed use of our Media Lab allows us to guarantee the continuity of the training courses despite the current context: the learners and the trainer can be at ALFMED or at a distance without disrupting the training and the educational context.

  • the course is given by our trainer at ALFMED, in our room which is equipped with a large screen with webcam and microphone
  • learners are physically in the classroom while others participate remotely (with their PC/webcam/microphone) in a diGITAL way
  • the trainer shares his screen and digital whiteboard with the learners on a large screen

The advantages :

  • complete flexibility whatever the circumstances (depending on his choice the learner comes to ALFMED or follows the course at a distance)
  • the pedagogical environment is recreated thanks to the large screen: facilitating interaction and practice from home/office or at ALFMED

phygital* contraction between the words “physical” and “digital”.
