K-State has more than 134 General Use Technology Classrooms (PDF). Basic technology resources are provided in the majority of classrooms and include a projector, laptop connection, sound system, and internet connection. Several rooms also include a built-in PC, DVD Player, document camera, and recording/video conferencing equipment. More information on the types of classrooms available is listed below.
All users must be trained prior to using technology classrooms. Personnel from the Division of Information Technology will provide training on the Manhattan campus. K-State Polytechnic and K-State Olathe also have staff available to provide training.
Faculty or departments that would like to request changes or have additional equipment installed must work with the K-State Technology Classroom Planning Committee. These requests will require at least six months of lead time for planning purposes and can be submitted for review by using the Technology Installation Request Form. This committee meets monthly and will invite individuals or departments to participate as needed.
