Types of classrooms
Classrooms are divided into four general categories. Our IT Rooms webpage shows specific equipment available in each room on campus.
Classrooms integrated with technology and media equipment necessary for video and data presentations. This includes data projectors, instructor PC station, document cameras, DVD, Blu-ray, and VCR players, wireless microphones, wireless presentation remotes and laptop input capabilities. The classrooms are controlled by various methods, including touch panels, MediaLink control systems and standard remotes.
Flexible learning space that integrates pedagogy, physical design and instructional technology to enhance instructional effectiveness and student learning. The room accommodates up to 54 students and is equipped with movable tables that seats 6-7 students. To allow for computing and networking use without a fixed arrangement, PCs and monitors were mounted along the perimeter and a wireless local network was installed. The room is equipped with movable screens (with whiteboard space) for privacy and to function as workspaces. To facilitate presentations, other equipment includes an instructor PC, two video projectors with independent screen controls.
Classrooms similarly equipped to smart classrooms, but include student PC and/or Mac workstations.

Using computer classroom equipment
Podium lockbox key
All classroom podium and metal rack doors have been removed. Only a lockbox key is necessary for access to classroom equipment. Faculty will need to be present for student classroom access. Students can use various breakout rooms across campus for practicing presentations.
Faculty must checkout a lockbox key and receive instruction on using the classroom equipment.
Faculty are responsible for returning all equipment to the lockbox at the end of each class.
