New projector technology changes paradigm of classroom AV management

The University of Minnesota installs new Sony laser projectors

As one of the nation’s largest public institutions, the University of Minnesota includes some 65,000 students on five campuses across the state, with its main campus in Minneapolis-St. Paul. In the year 2000, the leadership of the university began an ambitious plan to install video projectors in all 325 centrally scheduled classrooms and nearly 200 departmental classrooms on campus. Today, all classrooms have projectors installed, and they are maintained by the university’s Classroom Technical Services, which installs and maintains all classroom AV equipment on campus.

AV Trends: Hardware and Software for Sharing Screens

Experts weigh in on the latest features of video and presentation devices used for classroom collaboration.

In old-school lecture halls, the rooms would be outfitted with a single projector in the back and a single screen in the front, while large numbers of students quietly listened as the professor spoke. But as the standard lecture experience has become dated, the audiovisual needs of classrooms have evolved to support group study and collaborative, team-based learning. Mark Valenti, president and CEO of The Sextant Group, an audiovisual consulting firm, puts it this way: “We’re basically seeing the beginning of the end of the lecture hall.”

The Connected Campus: The Cost Effective Learning Environment

Remote management of A/V tech at Texas Woman’s University saved money, maximized staff.

This second of the three-part Connected Campus webinars features a case study from Texas Woman’s University, which used remote management and monitoring systems to achieve significant savings in equipment and energy costs, more efficiently manage staff time and improve the benefits of technology in classrooms and lecture halls.

University of Denver creates new system for rich media course libraries

Built on the Adobe® Flash® Platform, CourseMedia application enables tagging, editing, commenting and collaborating on rich-media objects

As new technologies are developed, many tried-and-true staples of academia have fallen. So it is with the carousel slide projector.

Long a staple of art history classes, slide projectors are becoming obsolete, and while many professors and instructors have plenty of media, they don't have a way to replace the projector itself.

For the University of Denver's multimedia department this presented an opportunity not only to solve an immediate problem but to create something that would go beyond the traditional uses of media objects.
