Videoconferencing and Collaborative Classrooms
The Millennium Classroom (Morton 343) is designed for fully interactive instruction and class activities. For a class that emphasizes student participation, the room seats about 16 in the view of a camera with easy access to a microphone. With a similar number at a remote location, a full roster would push the limits for open discussion. The ideal for classes of this type would be closer to half that total size.
Alternatively, the room can seat an additional 8-10 students (about 24 total) for a guest lecture from a remote instructor and you can also extend your lecture to others at distant sites. While all the students will not be on camera simultaneously, they'll still have the ability to ask a remote presenter questions.
We use special document cameras for incorporating documents and exhibits into lectures.
The Collaborative Classroom is located in Washington Hall 315. This room is a by-reservation space for collaborative work and video conferencing. You may contact Mike Blum at 221-7550 or [[mxblum]] to discuss your needs and reserve this room.
