Prior to the pandemic, the dominant model for university learning environments was the so-called lecture capture system providing a recording of slides and speaker microphone. During the pandemic, classes moved to a 100% online mode providing real time streaming, camera, and digital interaction. Returning to campus, the new status quo is a retrofit webcam to enable livestream video calls: a stopgap solution with poor student attendance. In this talk, we present a new paradigm build around a studio model: seating is limited more akin to a studio audience, and rather than 300 empty seats, resources are spent on futuristic AV that provides a digital embodiment for remote participants.
