Summer 2017 Classroom Technology Upgrades

The University has been able to continue to replace analog classroom equipment with modern digital systems. In many cases the rooms being upgraded this summer are gaining an installed classroom computer. In all cases classroom upgrades reflect a shift away from analog technologies like VGA and the old yellow, red, and white, composite video/audio connections, and movement towards HDMI connectivity and modern digital technology.

The classroom computer technology has also been able in many cases to be upgraded to utilize modern high performance SSD hard drives. These new hard drives should improve computer responsiveness by reducing the bottle neck in system performance that come with traditional hard drives. Many of the computers installed in classrooms on campus may seem more responsive this Fall than they have in past semesters, which should benefit the overall instructional experience for teachers and students.
