In-Class Technology

DCS provides a variety of classroom technologies designed to enhance the learning experience. Our equipment facilitates the use of popular presentation methods such as computer-based projection and digital video. DCS aids lecture hall teaching through the use of microphones, listening assistance, and multiple screen presentation. We are also engaged with the latest trends in pedagogy, such as wireless display sharing, networked computer-driven systems, videoconferencing, lecture capture, and document cameras. Finally, we support traditional analog equipment, including 16mm film projectors and 35mm slide projectors. Over ninety-nine percent of DCS-supported classrooms are equipped with permanent equipment housed in units that we refer to as "systems." These systems are presentation hubs from which instructors can project and play audio from a variety of different sources. In these classrooms you will find one of five different types of systems. While the capability of each type of system can vary depending on the size and orientation of the room, each system has a uniform user interface.

RC 1DCS has also designed rooms to facilitate different modes of teaching, including Active Learning Spaces, Conference & Capture Spaces, and Screening Rooms.
