Classroom technology for fall 2020 (ITS)

Information Technology Services (ITS) Audiovisual Experience Team (AVXT) is equipping general university classrooms with technology for live synchronous learning, asynchronous lecture capture, or both.

Some classrooms will include pan/tilt/zoom cameras and integrated audio. These classrooms will enable lecture capture using Panopto with cloud storage, and/or connect with the instructor’s device for videoconferencing or recording. Other classrooms will include a web camera and desktop microphone compatible with conventional software. Some general university classrooms will not have this new technology installed by August 17, and installations will continue into the first several weeks of the semester. Information Technology Services is providing a printed sheet of in-room instructions to assist instructors in using the new technology. To review this overview, download from CyBox the Fall 2020 Classroom AV Presentation.pptx.
