MyCapJr VCR decoders were also installed into two classrooms to accommodate closed captioning viewing, replaced 10 Audience Response System receivers in two classrooms with new versions for testing by Physics and Astronomy departments, and replaced all smart panel buttons in 11 classrooms.
Throughout the Spring quarter, IET, through its Classroom Technology Services (CTS) unit, has embarked on an upgrade of the media equipment in several general assignment classrooms. The Art Department has requested dual data projection capability in two of the art classrooms and other instructors have requested better projectors to accommodate higher resolutions for images. This request has prompted an extensive replacement of 40 data projectors that will take place during Summer 2005. The current models are 5-6 years old and starting to cause excessive maintenance issues due to old technology and low projection capabilities.
