We are running a school for foreign languages training students for office communication. This includes telephoning in foreign languages. Up to now, we provide a simple one-box unit with a wireless for the person that leaves the classroom and a loudspeaker for the class to listen.
There was the idea of building a telephone system that allows to simulate telephone calls to far destinations and to mobile phones offering kind of simulating distortions typical to such calls (delays, cracks, echos, or scenarios like “mobile phone at a busy street café” ).
With Asterisk, my phantasy goes to offer the trainer an easy interface to choose line quality, scenarios etc. and to have a telephone in every room (and maybe a few wireless ones) to call from and to be called. One might even simulate international numbers…
Has anyone here ever seen something like this with Asterisk, or are there any plugins/modules you would consider worth taking a look at? I am new to Asterisk, so I don’t know what to look for.
Let me add this: There is a Linux server running 24/7 and a terminal for the teachers in every classroom.
Thanks for all hints!
