In May 2011, Information Technology Services began updating technology in many of the general-use classrooms on campus. Since that time, new equipment has been installed in a total of 42 rooms in 11 different buildings. This includes a projector, a simple control panel, switching equipment, and sound amplification. These systems are based on new digital standards that allow for HDMI, VGA, Component and Composite inputs to be connected. The majority of the classrooms that were updated also had new white boards installed provided by the Division of Facilities.
During the summer 2012 break, 17 rooms were completed:
- Eisenhower 12, 16, 20, 122, 211, 218, 219, 223, 224
- Call 204
- Justin 149, 256, 341
- Kedzie 210, 214
- Waters 231, 333
Eight additional classrooms are currently scheduled for technology upgrades over the coming months and should be ready for the Fall 2013 semester. These rooms include: General Myers Hall 210, 211, 213; Fairchild 212, 310A; Seaton Court 213, 214, and Willard 218; bringing the total number of updated classrooms since May 2011 to 50.
