Technology Enhanced Rooms

Most Classrooms are equipped with Instructor computer with internet access connected to room projector at a minimum.

Our smart rooms allow our instructors and guests to teach using a wide variety of media.  These include DVD, PowerPoint software, and more all displayed through a data projector usually mounted from the ceiling.  All of the computers include internet browsing capability, MS Office Suite, USB connection, and are outfitted with virus security protection.

Smart Classroom
A smart classroom is a classroom that that has one instructor station equipped with computer, internet capability, ceiling mounted projector, and screen.
Smart Cart
Some of our smart rooms have a semi-permanent unit in the room called a Smart Cart. These secured Smart Carts have similar equipment housed inside them as the smart classrooms. These rooms also feature a data projector and screen. For security reasons these carts are locked and require specific keys. Department secretaries on each floor can assist you with access.
Smart Lab
A smart lab is a multi-station computer lab with internet capability, an instructor’s computer station, ceiling mounted data projector and screen.
Smart Hall
Our smart halls are large capacity lecture halls equipped with one computer station with internet capability, high definition data projector, and large automatic screen, complete with sound.  These rooms are ready to accommodate your own laptop.
The SMART Board is an interactive, electronic whiteboard that turns your computer and data projector into a powerful tool for teaching and presenting. Use your finger on the large touch sensitive screen to allow presentations from the front of the room. Use the pens from the SMART Pen Tray to write on the board and your notes are projected onto the screen in the correct color. You can save these notes on the computer or send them to your printer to be given out as a study aid.


We encourage the use of the internal DVD player inside instructor computers to play DVD's for classroom showing.  

Most instructor computers do not have capability to play a Blu-Ray Disc. Please utilize commercially produced DVD format for ensured compatability in the classrooms. A few of our larger Smart Halls and specialty Audio/Visual rooms are equiped with Blu-ray players. For information on room availability or to scheduling a room for your event please visit


A few rooms may still have lingering OLD TV/VCR carts or overhead transparency projectors. These items are not owned, supported, maintainained, delivered, or serviced by the Technology Department. You may use them "at your own risk". These items are being removed from campus as time and resources permit.

Classroom or Special Event Technology Support Requests

A minimum 1 week lead time when requesting Support or equipment for Special Events/Presentations. Any requests made with less notice may not be fullfilled pending equipment availability and personnel resources.

Any user scheduled to use a classroom with technology that is unfamiliar is encouraged to create a service desk ticket for initial assistance in their “new to them” classroom.

A technician will contact you to schedule to meet you prior to (or right before) your first session to brief you on the equipment and hand off. After initial briefing(s), users are encouraged to arrive a few minutes early to each class so that in the event of equipment issue, they can call our help desk if needed. If our first response phone support cannot resolve the issue, an on-site technician will be dispatched to your classroom pending department hours of operation.
