UVD Robots for the Education Sector
NOW RETURNING BACK TO COLLEGES, SCHOOLS AND UNIVERSITIES, STUDENTS AND STAFF ARE FACING A RAPID RISE IN RATES OF INFECTION FOR COVID-19. UVD ROBOTS CAN HELP GET THE EDUCATION SECTOR GET BACK TO WORK.
With thousands of students and staff meeting, living together and teaching in colleges, the ability for social distancing becomes extremely difficult and shared stairways, bathrooms, kitchens and living areas have become critical touch points containing the virus.
Within the first couple of weeks of returning to university in September 2020, a total of 50 universities have had Covid-19 outbreaks. Students are confined to their flats, unable to leave, with some isolating completely alone in their rooms. A key issue expressed by students is that many of them, although not testing positive, are sharing key areas with those who have tested positive and feel it is only a matter of time before they too get the virus.
Many students are unhappy with the limited face-to-face learning and socialising that is a consequence of universities and colleges being unable to ensure the safety of lecture halls, classrooms, labs and seminar rooms. Instead the blended learning experience has left students alone and isolated as learning continues to become increasingly virtual.
