OHP or Not

I am just coming to the end of equipping our new training rooms it's fairly well specced but it's mostly modern stuff, monitors projector etc. Do any of you trainers out there still use an OHP or know of any trainers that do!

i.e should I get one for the new place

New classroom looks awesome stu, better equipped than a lot I've seen!

I don't use an OHP myself - and only use Powerpoint for VHF & First Aid, but I know a lot of people still do. I'd be inclined to see if you can pick up one of those fancy computer ohp things that will plug into your projector - no idea how pricey they are though?

Is your classroom going to be available for hire to other groups? Looks like the sort of place I'd like to run some courses...

Jimbo, it's called a visualiser. I have seen them on ebay for less than a hundred quid.....

This sort of thing
Sadly this ones gone, but seems to be lots in USA. Perhaps not so popular here?

Good luck with the rest of the kitting out.

Stu

I would agree with Jim, those visualisers are very good.
Have used one a number of times.
Give you the combination of an OHP and a LCD projector with some added bits.
You can place things like EPIRB's flares etc on it and enlarge for the whole class to see.

Well worth the investment for a busy school.

Regards

Thanks for the info guys, I know what a visualiser is but I don't think the room needs to project something that can be handed around. The rya says 3 per instructor so the room has been set up to hold 9 students Max and I figure you can hand something around quite easily!

What I was really trying to find out, and I gurss I didn't word it well, was whether any instructors out there still use foils?

Jimbo thanks for the comments, yep it is available for hire, we have enjoyed a symbiotic relationship with Fluid Tuition for a year or so now and are happy to extend the facilities to other Skools and instructors! That's one of the reasons we have tried to do it right, I wanted it to be well specced but I think putting a lectern in was over the top

They had an OHP on my VHF course I took this summer - but then they are a bit slow down here - modern technology takes a while to catch on...

It was painful watching being used - with the crappy scratched acetates etc...

Power point presentation and a DLP projector all the way if you want to "project" a professional image (excuse the pun)...

Thanks Paul, I hope you and the Family are well!

I don't really want to have to buy Old technology unless I have to.

cheers
