Look for computers to be replaced in aproximately 35 classrooms this summer. This is part of our regular replacement cycle for the computers. The computers we remove still have a lot of life left in them and will be used as emergency spares for the classrooms and special projects that happen along the way. Check back often to see what else might be in the works for upgrades or improvements over 2016!
The summer of 2015 brought new upgrades to 10 General Purpose Classrooms and one in the School of Nursing. The GP Classroom computers now all have a new image with Deep Freeze installed to help maintain the integrity of the computer for all instructors. You can find the links to learn more about this and which rooms will be upgraded on our Heads Up! page.
During the summer of 2013, all the old style overhead Overhead-Laminate units and Kodak Slide Projectors were removed from the classrooms, thoroughly cleaned and stored. They have become dust collectors and cup holders in most cases and were taking up valuable classroom space. If you find you do need one of these items for your class, they are now available as a "BYOD" (bring your own device) option. Just contact us to reserve one for the time you will need it.
Rumors on Campus of the VHS Sunset. Yes, it's true!! They just don't make um any more. "What ever shall I do with all my VHS tapes I use in class?" Never fear, you are not alone in asking this question. The CTS Team, well a couple of them anyway, have fabricated a wonderful, marvelous machine! It will magically convert your poor, tired VHS tapes into, shall we say a more "hip" format! Bring your poor, your tired, your frazzled, your-you get the idea. Bring those outdated tapes down to Media Resources, on the ground floor of the Bailey/Howe Library, and we can get you started on transforming them into an up to date format that will be usable when that last VHS player is sent into analog history. Please remember, we have to watch out for copyright laws, so if you can buy the same tape in digital format that would be the best thing to do. No one will get into trouble that way. If you have any questions about the legal side of all this, check with the friendly folks in Media Resources.
Beginning in the summer of 2013 we have been busy replacing end of life cycle projectors and computers as well as upgrading several rooms. This has been an ongoing process since last summer. Check back here often to see what's been done and what's happening in the future! You can also check out our Heads Up! page for all the latest news.
We've have weeded out old and obsolete equipment, removed cleaned and stored little used equipment and are bringing in new projectors and computers.
