Classroom updates for Fall 2017!!!

Starboard technology will no longer be supported on Main Campus or the Health Science Campus.  You will see either a standard computer monitor or the “New Sharp Annotation monitor”.  A list of rooms slated to have the new technology for Fall, 2017 is provided below.  Please contact us for any questions about this.

Sharp Annotation Monitor Locations

Echo Classroom Capture has replaced Personal Capture in all of our rooms, enabling scheduled recordings now via the room’s computer and use of a webcam by the user.  Please reach out to UTOnline if you are interested in having this technology utilized in your classroom.

The addition of a new Active Learning space was created in Memorial Field House, room 1220.  Feel free to check it out or request more information about it.  

Changes and upgrades have taken place in classrooms in Gillham Hall, Health and Human Services, Wolfe Hall and Memorial Field House over the summer.  On the Health Science Campus, migration to Windows 10 has been completed in all of our classrooms, along with changes to HEB100, which has seen a seating layout makeover for more student collaboration.

Again, please do not hesitate to reach out to us directly about any questions/concerns/training or assistance.

Turning Technologies - TurningPoint

The TurningPoint (Clickers) is a classroom response system to increase class interactivity and improve student engagement. As an additional benefit, the system enables both students and instructors to get real-time feedback on class effectiveness.

The system comprises a receiver and handheld input devices (clickers). Receivers are installed in all of UT's classrooms. TurningPoint clickers are fully ADA-compliant.

Here are some materials to help faculty acclimate with the updates/changes with TurningPoint 8:
