Ellis Hall Room 321 - Large Classroom with Tables and Monitors

Capacity: 136

This classroom allows for multiple groups of different sizes opportunities to be actively engaged in their own learning and collaborating with one another with or without learning technology.

  • Chairs on wheels with rectangle tables that seat 8 (potential for groups of 4)
  • Each table has 1 monitor at the end not connected to the other table. These will probably be 22” 1080p 16/9 monitors to keep them from interfering with line-of-sight as much as possible (the top of the display will be around 14” from the table surface).
  • Where the two tables connect, per table, there are 4 power outlets, a VGA with audio and an HDMI cable, an amplified speaker and 2 buttons allowing  students to select between VGA and HDMI.
  • A podium with an installed Windows PC with an interactive display, an LCD touch screen controller, an ethernet jack, a ceiling mounted document camera, a USB cable connected to the interactive display, and VGA with audio and HDMI connectivity for the instructor’s device
  • In “collaboration mode”, each table will work independently (audio heard and video seen at each table corresponds to the device plugged in at each table)
  • In “presentation mode”, the same audio and video will be seen/heard at each table.
  • The instructor can choose to display his/her own display/audio or any one table’s display/audio to the monitor of all tables.
  • The microphones will probably be one wireless lavalier for the instructor and push-to-talk mics at each table.
