Two new state of the art DE classrooms opened in Cameron School of Business (CH #123) and the CHHS Building (McNeil #2056) during the 2013-14 academic year. In addition, we are in the process of finishing three new DE classrooms in the Education Building (EB #226, EB #337, EB #214) which will be ready for fall semester 2014. These three new classrooms bring the total number of DE classrooms in the Education building to five, all of which will be supported from one centralized control room in order to provide the most efficient and effective technical support for our faculty and students!
Our two TelePresence Classrooms (Ed Building #368 and King #203) provide state of the art, full HD and immersive conferencing environments for academic classes or meetings of any type featuring connectivity to remote participants and distance learners anywhere in the world.
Mobile / Desktop Videoconferencing:
In addition to connectivity with professional grade video conferencing solutions (e.g., TelePresence systems and traditional video conferencing classrooms/systems), our classrooms can also connect with remote participants anywhere in the world via their personal computers or other mobile devices. Our classrooms support a variety of mobile/desktop conferencing tools including WebEx, Google hangouts, Skype, Cisco Jabber, Adobe connect and more.
Live Streaming and Lecture Capture:
Each of our classrooms features Mediasite and Cisco Content Server technology. Thus, any class, meeting or event can be captured, archived and made available for live or on-demand streaming to remote participants and distance learners regardless of their location.
