For Spring Quarter 2014 the Classroom Refresh Project moves to the Humanities & Social Sciences (HSS) building, beginning with rooms 1305 and 1315.
One of the most noticeable improvements to the classrooms is the installation of a new projector. It is brighter than the previous one, which makes it easier to see the projection. Just as importantly, it also uses less energy to contribute to campus sustainability efforts. New projection screens also improve the picture.
Touch screen control panels were installed in the front of both rooms. The touch screen panel is a standard feature in all refreshed classrooms. It brings input, volume, and lighting controls together in one convenient place. A video about how to use the control panel is available.
Another new feature is the document camera in the ceiling of each room. The camera can be selected from the touch screen and used to display anything through the projector. All images captured by the document camera are included in course screencasts, if enabled by faculty.
HSS 1035 and 1315 also have six new lighting presets, which have been configured to light different situations.
