The Smart Classroom Initiative is a program sponsored by the Office of the Provost to provide classrooms with advanced technology for the enhancement of students’ education. Media Services and Information Technology Services (ITS) are charged with supporting these rooms.
For general inquiries regarding Smart Classroom technology and its use contact the Smart Classroom Trainers/Technicians.
Smart Classroom Technology
Each Provost-sponsored Smart Classroom is equipped with an equipment user guide, multimedia projector, screen, networked PC computer, document camera, DVD/VHS player with closed caption decoding capability, SMART Sympodium interactive monitor, Crestron audiovisual system control, and cabling for instructor laptop connectivity. Most rooms also have a sound system and a direct phone line to technical support.
Every effort to standardize the operation of the classrooms has been made. However, room size and changes in equipment technologies have necessitated some differences between rooms.
Smart Classroom Guides
Media Services has created equipment operation guides for each Provost-sponsored Smart Classroom. The illustrated guides describing the operation of each room’s equipment are available in the rooms as well as online for most rooms.
