linc - The Smallest Seminar Room of the Future

"linc" - the new mobile learning world of the "Future Work Lab" is the smallest seminar room of the future! The name is a combination of the words "learn", "interact" and "create".

The multifunctional linc is therefore much more than a learning room in the usual sense, because it represents both a demonstrator for the topic of learning (design) and a learning location for a wide range of topics relating to the working and learning world of the future. 


What "linc" offers you

As an innovative learning environment, linc combines digital and analog interaction possibilities and offers different usage scenarios as well as methods of learning and knowledge transfer: 

As an individual, you learn with linc receptively (e.g. e-learning, learning video) or exploratively (e.g. discovering functions, creating your own learning situations) as well as guided or self-directed.

In addition, content can be developed together frontally (e.g. seminar, presentation) or collectively (e.g. tool in group work or in special learning formats, such as a hackathon). 

The center screen is used for central content transfer, while the lower screen enables additional information to be provided.

For the implementation of analog formats, especially in groups, a whiteboard is available on the right side, which can be extended from the corpus. With various storage options, linc offers storage space for presentation laptops and seminar or creative documents. 

Hands-on learning, independent of time and place

Thanks to its special design, linc can always be taken to wherever learning is taking place and knowledge is to be applied directly. Whether in the office, the production hall or in a seminar room, the demonstrator can be integrated into further and advanced training courses in a modular and barrier-free way, thus promoting creative and application-oriented learning.

This creates a place where knowledge can be made accessible in different scenarios of knowledge transfer for individuals and small groups in an application-oriented, practical, location-independent and multimedia-supported manner.
