Future of the M.B.A.

Spanish Business School launches launches a digital learning window

IE Wow Room

A number of business schools are trying to bring the intensity and experience of a live lecture theater into an online environment for their M.B.A. programs. IE has launched its WOW Room, taking its commitment to technology immersion in the learning environment to the next level. The futuristic learning space is the result of a combination of IE´s teaching excellence and latest generation technologies aimed at inspiring the class of the future.

Spanish university’s new teaching space mixes videoconferencing and online collaboration with data analysis and emotional recognition technology.

IE has launched its WOW Room, taking its commitment to technology immersion in the learning environment to the next level. The futuristic learning space is the result of a combination of IE’s teaching excellence and latest generation technologies aimed at inspiring the class of the future. With this project, unique in Europe, IE further strengthens its commitment to innovation and breaks with traditional onsite, blended and online education models. The WOW Room transforms the learning experience through elements that include artificial intelligence, simulations in real time, big data analysis, interactive robots, emotion recognition systems, and the presence of experts using holograms.

IE has invested 25 million euros in innovative education projects over the last fifteen years. The project, which is the first of its kind in Europe, uses artificial intelligence, simulations, big data, interactive robots and holograms.

The WOW (Window on the World) Room, is a physical space located on IE’s Madrid campus with 48 screens that comprise a digital tapestry of 45m2 shaped in the form of a “U” and with up to 200 degree vision. The hardware includes 2 tactile screens and cameras that permit the recording and editing of sessions in real time. In order to coordinate the space, the WOW Room team works with latest generation computers, SyncRTC servers, robots and holographic projectors. With regard to software, the WOW Room benefits from a SyncRTC video collaboration platform customized specifically for the project. The WOW Room provides advanced videocollaboration solutions that require low broadband levels to ensure effective participation of students using any kind of device from anywhere in the world.

Professors will either be physically present in the WOW Room or will be projected in hologram form and moved around the room by a robot in order to interact with students. In addition to simulations, professors will use artificial intelligence and big data analysis on large screens. They will receive student participation statistics and propose votes on subjects of debate to promote collaboration. All classes will be recorded to enable subsequent access and reviewing of content.

The Wow Room will allow students from around the world to work on documents and to analyse big data collaboratively, while they will also be able to take part in simulations in real time, with the idea that scenarios such as business situations and diplomatic conflicts could be played out with the live participation of experts in the field or processes including factory production lines.

What makes the Wow Room innovative – and what IE believes sets it apart from HBX Live, Harvard University’s virtual classroom, perhaps the closest comparison – is the range of tools that it makes available in one space.
