Spring Break 2018 classroom technology upgrades

CALS Facilities, CALS-OIT and the CALS Office of Academic Programs are pleased to announce the replacement of the A/V systems in four classrooms were completed during Spring Break 2018. Plant Science 141 and 143, Riley-Robb B15 and Kennedy 105 were updated to meet the Cornell University standard of Learning Technology Room Type 1. Audio-Video systems in these rooms now have a simpler interface and more presentation capabilities including; a resident computer, laptop connection, wireless projection, document camera, “steerable” webcams, and touch panel control for video switching and volume control.

Type 1 rooms are standard learning spaces requiring support for lectures, basic digital/multimedia presentations, basic collaboration, and informal remote collaboration (synchronous, software-based). These systems are appropriate for many small to medium-sized classrooms as well as some large lecture halls. You can find out more about current room standards at https://it.cornell.edu/integrated-av/av-standards

The decision regarding what rooms to upgrade was done by reviewing which rooms had the most technology challenges, requests from instructors to the Registrar, and responses received from a survey distributed at the end of the fall semester in 2017.
