K-State has more than 120 General Use Technology Classrooms. Basic technology resources are provided in the majority of classrooms and includes 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 iTAC will provide training at 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 on the first Wednesday of every month and will invite individuals or departments to participate as needed.
The currently scheduled classroom upgrades for Summer 2016 are Waters 328 and Throckmorton 1014. This will include the installation of new seating, flooring, infrastructure changes and new teaching equipment.
