Seventeen more basic technology classrooms completed this summer

By Ryan Hagar

In May 2011, information technology services began updating technology in many of the general-use classrooms on campus. Since that time, new equipment has been installed in a total of 42 rooms in 11 different buildings. This includes a projector, a simple control panel, switching equipment and sound amplification. These systems are based on new digital standards that allow for HDMI, VGA, Component and Composite inputs to be connected. The majority of the classrooms that were updated also had new white boards installed provided by the Division of Facilities.

During summer 2012, 17 rooms were completed: 

  • Rooms 12, 16, 20, 122, 211, 218, 219, 223 and 224 in Eisenhower
  • 204 Call Hall
  • 149, 256 and 341 Justin Hall
  • 210 and 214 Kedzie Hall
  • 231 and 333 Waters Hall

Eight additional classrooms are currently scheduled for technology upgrades over the coming months and should be ready for the fall 2013 semester. These rooms include: Rooms 210, 211 and 213 in General Myers Hall; 212 and 310A Fairchild Hall; 213 and 214 Seaton Court, and 218 Willard Hall. This will bring the total number of updated technology classrooms to 50.
