Technology In Classrooms
There are a large number of classrooms throughout Hunter College with technology installations.
All classrooms with technology have data/video projector mounted to the ceiling and a laptop hookup. Some of them have a lectern with a computer, VCR, DVD, document camera, microphone and/or speakers as well. These systems are controlled by a single control panel.
There are four types of classrooms with technology;
- Enhanced classrooms with Pixie system controls (level 1); you must bring a laptop and/or document camera to use this classroom.*
- Enhanced classrooms with Pixie system controls and a computer is located in the classroom (level 2). (Alternatively you may bring your own laptop to use in these rooms.*)
- Smart classroom with either Crestron or Pixie controls, with a computer, dvd and vcr (please note that DVD/1/2"VHS combo is now a standard equipment), and some classrooms have document camera already installed (if a classroom you are using doesn't have a document camera you may requested from us) located in this classroom. (Alternatively you may bring your own laptop to use in these rooms.*)
- Enhanced classroom with a Smartboard and/or a projector with a remote control. You must bring a laptop with you to use this classroom.*
*Please note: You will need an AV cable to connect your laptop to computer projection; in addition, you will need a dongle if you have a Macintosh laptop. You may need a network cable if your classroom is not yet located in the wireless network. All necessary cables may be borrowed for the semester from Classroom Technology Services.
