For over 20 years Korg has worked extensively with educators all over the world with overwhelming success in thousands of music, language and technology labs. This expertise in educational technology has led to the development of the Korg GEC5 Lab System - the most user-friendly, flexible and powerful lab control system available.
Suitable for any teaching level and any combination of electronic instruments, (MIDI keyboards, guitars, sound modules, computer soundcards, etc.) the GEC5 allows teachers to interact with as many as 32 different student stations and up to 64 students, since each student station can accommodate two students!
SOFTWARE INTERFACE AND TABLET INTEGRATION
The GEC5 utilizes a custom designed software interface which was built from the ground up to be a powerful and intuitive group instruction system. Compatible with both Windows and Apple operating systems for your desktop and either Android or iOS for your tablet, Educators will be able to control the audio in the room by customizing classroom layouts, and “eavesdrop” on student’s progress, all with a few simple clicks.
MULTIPLE MODES MEAN FLEXIBILITY
There are three main modes of GEC5 operation. Each of these can be selected within the software interface at the teacher’s station. They include:
- Lecture Mode:
This mode is used to present material in a lecture format. All students hear the teacher’s microphone and instrument or computer allowing for a captive and quiet audience.
This mode is used when the students are working independently. Each student hears only his or her own instrument or computer. In Practice Mode, the teacher has the option of “eavesdropping” on the student and initiating 2 way communication with the student.
This mode is used when students are working together in groups (two or more student workstations in any conceivable configuration). Each student in a group can hear his or her own instrument as well as the instruments or computer and microphone of the other members of their group.
