Classroom Technology Services

Information Services provides state-of-the-art instructional technology and applications in General Purpose classrooms on campus. We support instructors by offering the training and help you need to enhance your success.

Supported technologies include:

Audience Response Systems

clickers or audience response systems

Audience response sytems, also known as clickers, are wireless hand-held devices used to conduct student participation in the classroom, often to credit attendance and measure understanding. Student inputs can be instantly displayed on screen, along with the correct answer choice. This provides both student and instructor with valuable real time feedback.

For more information, please see the Technology Across the Curriculum (TAC) website.The TAC calendar will include any available training opportunities.

PowerPoint can be used with or without the Turning NXT as a pedagogical tool in its own right. Please consult the TAC calendar for training opportunities or access one of the many PowerPoint GEMs developed by TAC.

Teaching Stations

Teaching stations in the general purpose enhanced classrooms are equipped with an iMac computer running Windows 7 and OS X. Instructors may boot up the operating system that they prefer. Microsoft Office 2010/2011, a secure telnet application, and a web browser are installed on the computer. Additional licensed software, provided by the instructor, can be loaded as needed. The computer also has a "wireless mouse" allowing the presenter to move about the room during presentations.

Instructions & Demonstrations

When you first come to the teaching station the touch panel will most likely be darkened; this is the energy saving mode. Simply touch the panel for it to become active. After the panel becomes active, you will see this screen.

Please note that the touch panel has five buttons on the left and on the right side of the touch screen. These buttons are active when the VCR and DVD are selected which will be covered later. Now touch the panel as the screen says.
