Classrooms

 

  • Projection Screen
  • Overhead Projector & Slide Projector
  • VHS VCR/DVD Player
  • Stereo Sound System
  • LCD Data Projector 4000 lumens
  • Single Point of Control
  • PC Computer (managed remotely)
  • Wireless Network
  • Network Data Port (using Dynamic IP)
  • Campus Phone

"Profile A+" classrooms contain an enhanced array of presentation technology as well as new “classroom control” technology. The new profile includes a multimedia controller, a “thin client” computer system linked to a campus instructional server, and a brighter projector.

A 4000 lumen (brightness measurement) LCD projector will allow faculty to project detailed presentations while room lights remain completely on (this technology enhancement is required due to the increasing complexity of digital presentations). The “thin-client” computer system will allow faculty to connect to a central server and present instructional material (PowerPoint, scanned images, digital video) in ANY General Assignment classroom throughout campus.

The technology found in A+ profile classrooms is completely supported via the campus network. The multimedia controllers are all be web-enabled, making them accessible to support staff for monitoring and assisting faculty. The PC computers will be maintained and supported through the campus network by a dedicated server.

  • Campus Phone
  • Wireless Lapel Microphone

As described in Profile A+, the "B+" enhanced profile includes a multimedia controller (single point of classroom control), a PC computer, and a brighter, projector. The PC Computer is centrally managed for updates, repairs and remote assistance.

Importantly, in addition to the administrative and service capabilities, the multimedia controllers will also provide a common “interface” for campus instructors improving ease of operation.

"C+"

Classrooms

  • 2- Projection Screens
  • VHS VCR/DVD Player
  • Stereo Sound System
  • 2-LCD Data Projectors
  • 4,5000 lumens
  • Single Point of Control
  • PC Computer
  • Clicker Receivers
  • Wireless Network
  • Network Data Port (using Dynamic IP)
  • Campus Phone
  • Hi-Res Document Camera
  • Demo Camera

“Profile C+” classrooms are larger lecture halls and range in size from 150 to 430 seats. In addition to the equipment setup found in Profile B rooms, these classrooms have a desktop computer connected to the projector and to the campus network. Due to the configuration and size of these rooms, LCD projectors must be capable of projecting at least 6,500 lumens. The equipment includes a document camera that allows the display of detailed material through the projector. These cameras capture and project transparency sheets, regular paper, books, and other small objects.

"C-3"
Code
Classrooms

  • 3- Projection Screens
  • Overhead Projector
    Slide Projector
  • VHS VCR/DVD Player
  • Stereo Sound System
  • 3-LCD Data Projectors 7000 lumens
  • Single Point of Control
  • PC Computer
  • Clicker Receivers
  • Smartboards
  • Wireless Lapel Mic
  • Wireless Network
  • Network Data Port (using Dynamic IP)
  • Campus Phone
  • 35mm slide projector
  • Wireless Lapel Microphone
  • Annotation Panel
  • Hi-Res Document Camera
  • Demo Camera

Teaching in large lecture halls can be particularly challenging to instructors who often must present material from multiple digital sources. Thus, the enhanced C-3 profile allows faculty to present material from more three sources using various technologies.

The C-3 classroom contains a multimedia controller (single point of classroom control), a PC computer, and a brighter projector as found in the other classroom profiles.

However, the C-3 rooms are further enhanced with a three-projector system, Smartbords and an annotation panel that allows faculty to make annotations over any digital material presented, such as Powerpoints or images.


"Flex"

Classrooms

  • 2- Projection Screens
  • VHS VCR/DVD Player
  • Stereo Sound System
  • 2-LCD Data Projectors 4,5000 lumens
  • Single Point of Control
  • PC Computer
  • Clicker Receivers
  • Wireless Network
  • Network Data Port (using Dynamic IP)
  • Campus Phone
  • Hi-Res Document Camera
  • Demo Camera

The Flex Classrooms are rooms with a flexible design. They incorporate flexible use of technologies, as well as flexible furniture and a flexible environment. The technologies consist of an array of sources, two display systems and two contorl systems. This allows faculty to mix and match technologies on screen. It also allows for splitting the class into groups and have them work on separate material, off of separate screens. All the furniture is on wheels. This lightweight, yet durable, chairs are comfortable and easily adjustable for group work and collaboration. The environment includes whiteboards on every wall.
