Technology Equip Class Rooms
Information Technology continues its technology equip class room program with the cooperation of many departments including Buildings and Grounds, Facilities Management, CTLET as well as the input from faculty and staff including our Provost. This project requires coordinated efforts across all these areas and so far we have been able to successfully continue to bring up new classrooms each semester. The 2019 fall semester saw the completion of 10 additional rooms and during the current Spring semester we are working on five more.
We are shifting gears a little during the summer of 2019 as renovation to some major lecture halls in our Academic Core will necessitate building out new class rooms in locations away from the Academic Core. This is good news for the College on many levels. One, lecture halls are being renovated and two, technology equip rooms are now planned for the Class Room building. Nine rooms have been selected and considered for building over the summer. In total by the time those rooms are completed we will be up to around 112 Technology Equip rooms on campus. The maintenance and daily operations needed to support these rooms is a critical part of the planning of the new class rooms. This is why we continually pay attention to the actual technology and make every attempt to simplify while providing the optimal range of functionality needed for use. Our PC Support teams working along with CTLET department have been able to make some advance jumps in how we interact and use all this technology. We will continue to advance the goals of the campus and improve the learning experiences of everyone especially our students who are the ones who make all these improvements possible.
