Instructional & Classroom Technology

  • Presentation systems, including projectors, lecterns, sound systems, and room controls, may be used by any instructor or presenter in the 50 College of Engineering scheduled classrooms.
  • Room-based lecture recording systems are installed in most of the classrooms, and other on-campus locations, with additional installations planned. Use of the lecture recording system is limited to College of Engineering courses and events.
  • CAEN consultants are also available to assist College of Engineering instructors with using some of the most popular tools and online services in their teaching.

 

The goal of CAEN and the College of Engineering’s Office of Instructional Technology is to provide consistent, easy to use, and reliable technology to enhance learning and teaching for instructors and students in every classroom maintained by the College. Classroom technology has a self-service orientation, facilitated by easy to use in-room control systems and setups pre-configured by CAEN staff. Classroom technology is actively supported and enhanced by CAEN. Other related technology, including desktop and room-based conferencing and collaboration systems, also receive limited support.
