Smart classrooms upgraded in Tuttleman Learning Center

As part of the Computer Services Five-Year Smart Classroom plan, 16 new ceiling-mounted projectors were installed as replacements in Tuttleman smart classrooms. Also, 29 new PCs were installed in smart classrooms and on carts.

One of the goals of the Five-Year Smart Classroom Plan is to keep equipment in smart classrooms current. The plan recommends the replacement of computers every three to four years and the replacement of projectors every four to five years.

Ambler enhances technology

A new smart classroom was installed on the Ambler Campus in Widener Building, room 211. The technology enhancements include a podium/desk equipped with a computer, a flat-screen monitor, a DVD/VHS combo deck, a mini-audio system, a document camera, a ceiling mounted projector and screen, and wireless access.

In addition, Bright Hall Lounge was upgraded with all new smart technology including a ceiling-mounted projector and screen, Internet access/wireless infrastructure, shielded wiring for a new audio/six-microphone input panel, an amplified audio board, a DVD/VHS combo deck, and high-tech fixed speakers throughout.

Anti-virus protection available
