For the Fall 2015 semester, the iDesign-Classroom Group is installing new Logitech R400 Wireless Presenters in all of our technology classrooms that are equiped with a PC. This presenter will advance PowerPoint slides and also functions as a laser pointer.
For full instructions, please visit our Logitech Presenter page.
Ten new technology classrooms in Armstrong Hall feature the new Plug-N-Play design, which consists of an input panel connected to a projection system with speakers.
On Thursday, September 3rd from 11AM through 2PM, iDesign-Classroom staff will be in Armstrong Hall room 207 to show the Plug-N-Play style technology to any interested member of the WVU community.
Question: What do the following things have in common?
A tablet computer with wireless video and audio transmitting to a projector
A printer that produces 3D objects
A whiteboard you can see through.
Answer: These items and more will be highlighted at CELEBRATE 2015 for WVU faculty.
We hope to see you there!
WVU faculty and staff who use or support interactive pen displays (similar to SMART Technologies' annotation monitors in iDesign classrooms) are invited to an equipment demonstration by Wacom.
The demo will be held in the Academic Innovation offices on Thursday, November 20 between 12 p.m. and 1:30 p.m. on the third floor of the Jackson Kelly Building at 150 Clay Street in Morgantown's Wharf District.
Wacom models being reviewed:
Summer has been a busy time for iDesign-Classroom staff installing new classrooms, revitalizing existing rooms with new projectors, and collaborating with our parent organization Academic Innovation to create a demonstration "LightBoard" as well as a new experimentation space inside the Evansdale Library which Sue Day-Perroots has dubbed "The Sandbox".
Currently, we are working with audiovisual installers on a Computer Training Lab in G17 of the Evansdale Library. We're also in the final design phases of having new HD technology classrooms installed into Hodges Hall rooms 250 and 252, the new Advanced Engineering Research Building rooms 135 and 137, and the new Art Museum room G7. Designs are being created for more technology classrooms in Armstrong, B&E, Engineering Sciences, the new Evansdale Connector Building, and upgrades to classrooms in Towers and South Ag. Sciences.
We also continue to implement our long-term strategic plan of improving classroom video by upgrading from analog to digital, testing additional technological-pedagogical innovations with faculty, researching and implementing new technology standards with the help of the WVU community.
The iDesign-Classroom unit will have an OPEN HOUSE training session on Monday, August 25th from 1:00 pm until 3:00 pm in 335 Percival Hall. Please stop by anytime during the event for a quick training session, or just to see the capabilities of this new technology classroom for teaching through group "Bring Your Own Device" collaboration.
