All registrar-scheduled classrooms at IU South Bend have a technology desk or lectern that includes a Windows computer, a document camera, DVD player, laptop connections, and a projector or LCD display. Most rooms have been upgraded to an all-digital control system with a touch-panel controller, and the remainder are scheduled for upgrade before the end of 2017.
Room 2102 in the Education and Arts building, the “Next Generation Classroom”
This room features a collaborative environment consisting of four 6-seat collaborative stations and a videoconferencing system. At the tables, students may use a built-in computer or plug in their own device, and view their work on a wall-mounted TV at the end of each table. The instructor may choose to share any table’s screen on the 80” TV in the room, or in a classroom anywhere in the world. The EagleEye Director system automatically cuts to a close-up of whoever is currently presenting, based on voice-triangulation and facial recognition.
Scheduling a Semester-Long Course in Room 2102
Scheduling priority is given to courses that require collaborative/distance technology in support of campus strategic goals.
- First priority is given to synchronous distance courses that are offered on multiple campuses.
- Second priority is given to courses that require collaborative and/or videoconferencing technology.
Requests will be confirmed one week prior to the beginning of advanced registration (March 24 for Summer I), and an email confirmation will be sent. You will meet with staff from UCET and UITS to discuss optimal use of the room, and to receive technical training.
