Over spring break, Instructional Technologies completed another classroom upgrade in the Hauge Administration Building. A new podium was installed in room 214, with equipment that provides an easier user experience, as well as network monitoring of the room's projector. The new controller device will send Instructional Technologies e-mail notifications if there are lamp or filter issues with the projector, and power the projector down each night if it was left on by mistake. This new equipment helps our technicians identify potential problems before they arise. It also helps us save money by extending the life of our projector lamps and powering down non-essential equipment when it is not in use.
