Improvements to Classrooms
The Clinics have new rooms! Well, actually, the rooms are old but the technology inside is them is new. Keeping in line with their commitment to update the technology in each classroom over the course of six years, the Media Services Group completed technological upgrades on the four Furman Hall Flex Courts (FH328, FH 332, FH 604, FH 608). For those of you that are counting, that is fourteen rooms renovated and updated in two years, far ahead of the six year pace. .
Here are some of the highlights of the Flex Court renovations:
Video projectors have been replaced 80 inch widescreen monitors
The chalkboards have been replaced with whiteboards
A 15-inch control screen has been installed on the wall in each room, giving users the ability to:
- control camera and recording functions
- broadcast the room computer or laptop
- adjust the window shades
- change cable TV channels,
- make a conference call
- and a whole host of other functions that will enhance the teaching and learning experience through technological means
To schedule a hands-on for these newly improved rooms, please contact us at email@example.com.
We are delighted to announce that the ITS Media Services has finished a comprehensive technology and podium renovation in all of the Vanderbilt Hall classrooms.
As we all know, the old equipment in the Van Hall classrooms lived well beyond its life expectancy and this work has been a long time in coming.
Listed below are a few of the changes we made to improve the user experience for teaching in these rooms:
- new podiums with improved ergonomics (height adjustable and larger workspace area)
- widescreen digital HD projection
- easy-to-use touchscreen controls
- a new digital sound system
- an integrated recording solution for all class recording requests
For an overview of the new classroom setup, please take a moment to watch our video (you will need Silverlight to watch it – and if you already watch Netflix on your computer, then you already have Silverlight installed).
We have a few people to thank on this project. First off, we would like to thank Barry Adler who gave us valuable guidance on the design’s direction. We would also like to thank Lillian Zalta and her team for their help. Finally, we would like to thank Tolga Ergunay and the rest of our ITS colleagues for their energy and support on this project.
If you are interested in hands on training, we will be happy to arrange it. We encourage you to contact us at AVRequest@exchange.law.nyu.edu to schedule a training session.
