On-Campus Classroom Support

Instructors have access to computing technologies in a number of classrooms across each campus which provide resources that will assist instructors in enhancing their learning environment. Instructors will be able to utilize a personal or college-issued laptop to share a variety of learning tools with their students; such as PowerPoint presentations, slideshows, web sites, and online videos. All equipment is placed for convenient instructor access with an optimal display location for students. ITS provides full support and offers training on all classroom equipment.

In addition to ILC, ITV, and .5 classrooms, ITS is currently in the process of implementing Tier 1 and Tier 2 classrooms (will replace .5 classrooms) to provide improved access to computing resources for instructors. More information regarding usage will be provided as more classrooms are upgraded.
