Kubi brings remote students in on class action when they can’t be there in person. The University of Colorado Boulder has formally introduced a “remote presence” technology to enable students who can’t be physically present in a course to attend remotely. Kubi is a robotic neck that holds a tablet and is controllable by the remote user to allow him or her to look around the room through a Zoom videoconference meeting. The tablet, through which the remote student can see, hear and speak with others in the room, can be moved 320 degrees side to side and 90 degrees up and down.
