Detailed list of UI's Technology Classrooms

Fifteen classrooms were upgraded Summer 2021 with funding from the Governor's Emergency Education Relief (GEER) fund. These classrooms benefit instructors who have class meeting and virtual meeting sections scheduled simultaneously. They also benefit instructors who have frequent guest speakers joining from a distance.

Two classrooms (TLC 029 and TLC 248) received full upgrades based on feedback from instructors. Improvements to these rooms include:

  • A camera to auto-track the instructor
  • Ceiling microphone for students to be heard at a distance (and for instructor to be heard when circulating the room)
  • Two monitors at the lectern: A touch monitor which serves as the primary monitor to allow annotation or use of whiteboard in Zoom. A secondary traditional monitor to be utilized for dragging information from the second monitor that you need to focus on as an instructor (Zoom chat, preparing other content to share, etc.).

Thirteen classrooms (AD 227, AD 326, ALB 112, ALB 212, EP 205, EP 209, MCCL 209, MCCL 315, TLC 023, TLC 030, TLC 046, TLC 047, and TLC 148) received partial upgrades that included ceiling microphones and two monitors at the lectern.

ALL Registrar-scheduled classrooms have a ThinkBoard dry erase board, as well as a wipe cloth and dry erase marker, located on the lectern for convenience when using the doc cam.
