Similar to movie theatres, a lecture theatre is designed with a screen at the center, and rows of chairs to sit in an elevating way. Students sit there in a digital classroom and listen to recorded or live lectures. Unlike a traditional classroom with a lecturer teaching on a board with a pen, it is a digital classroom where the lecturer teaches online.
A Lecture theatre is different from other study rooms, like a classroom, or laboratory, or any other activity room. It is designed in a way that students can directly focus on the lecturer on the screen, without any disturbance from the other students. This promotes the digital classroom concept, where students and lecturers can communicate without being at the same place. It seeks the proper attention of the whole classroom at one point during the whole lecture.
While designing the teaching environment, the concept of effective learning is always kept in mind as a part of the teaching strategy. The type of seating and decoration is also important in classrooms now; it needs to work as the motivation for the students. Creating an effective environment inspires students to attend lectures while sitting in a digital classroom. A comfortable learning environment is very important to concentrate in the classroom.
