BAS S314 Classroom of the Future
As part of MTSU's commitment to offering its student the best quality education, the S314 Master Classroom was renewed entirely so that students can keep up their path to excellence with last-generation classroom technologies. The BAS S314 classroom has a 98" touch screen (improving the interactivity of the classroom), dual cameras (a student-facing camera & a teacher-facing auto-tracking camera), and dual-screens (with a Waco annotation display) for better remote and face-to-face interactions.
Proctoring Ruling Implications
Even though online-proctoring software is an essential component of distance learning,
allowing busy or far-from-campus students to move toward their degree, there are some
privacy issues to consider:
Martin Chair of Insurance Upgrades
The Martin Chair of Insurance has upgraded its student space with new video conferencing technology. Included in the upgrade are new ceiling microphones and Zoom Room capabilities. The new setup will allow one-touch control for meetings, full HD video and audio sharing, wireless sharing, whiteboarding, chat, and integration with our Exchange system.
Using an iPad in the Classrooms
Have you ever wanted to walk around your classroom while doing a presentation? What
about annotating your slides? You can now remote control your PowerPoint presentation
from your iPad or iPhone!
Simpler Ways to Open a PDF in a Classroom
Opening a pdf file in your classroom could be time-consuming. This is because, by
default, the Adobe Acrobat DC program will run and it requires you to sign in using
your MT credentials. If you just need to open a pdf file to show it to your class
(no updates), there are simpler ways to do it in the classroom.
