New Synchronous Classroom

Tillett 224

Tillett 224 is DCS's newest Synchronous Learning Space.  Our Synchronous Classrooms can be used to teach a class of students from a second location, enable students to participate remotely, or invite guest lecturers from around the world to speak with a class. Tillett 224's video conference equipment is designed to limit the feeling of distance between participants. Screens at the front of the room enable classes to view the presenter and their shared class materials side-by-side, using sightlines that have in-class and remote participants look at each other. Classroom cameras are capable of identifying speaking audience members and zooming in on them as they participate to better allow for fluid back and forth.  While DCS's Immersive Synchronous Lecture Halls are designed for room-to-room connections that strive to create an identical experience across both rooms, Tillett 224 is capable of connecting with remote participants regardless of whether they are connecting from another video conference room, a computer, or even a cell phone.  The conferencing equipment is controlled from the room's Digital Classroom Podium. As a result, instructors can connect with remote parties with minimal extra steps than they would normally take to teach. If you are interested in using Tillett 224, let us know.
