Classrooms and Labs

What is it?

More than 95 percent of University classrooms have installed presentation technology. Specific features vary by classroom, but the standard features may include:

  • Digital projector or flat panel display
  • Resident computer
  • Document camera
  • DVD player
  • Laptop connections
  • Control system (touch or button panel)

Some classrooms offer additional features:

  • Software (Tegrity) and cameras installed in some classrooms allow faculty members to create a video of classroom activity, including presentations and other materials displayed on the classroom computer. Faculty members can publish the videos for access by their students.
  • Interactive displays (Sharp digital annotation flat panels, SMART Podiums) allow digital annotation of computer content that can be saved to a file and shared with students.
