Cognitive Science Building 002 and 004 are the latest classrooms to receive new audiovisual equipment via the Lecture Hall and Classroom Refresh Project. These rooms contain 176 seats, bringing the total classroom and lecture hall seats affected by the project to 5,559.
New lighting modes give instructors a range of options during class:
- Bright Presentation
- Normal Presentation
- Low Presentation
- Front Only
- All Lights On
- All Lights Off
The Presentation modes turn off lights at the chalkboard while keeping lights on over seats. This makes note taking easier for students while allowing them to easily see the projector screen.
New projectors and screens have been installed in both rooms. These energy efficient projectors save the campus money and contribute towards UC San Diego’s sustainability goals.
A touch screen control panel (located in the lectern in CSB 002 and on the wall near the DVD player in CSB 004) allows instructors to control lights and audiovisual systems. This includes seamlessly moving between the Blu-ray/DVD/VHS player, laptop, and document camera.
The new document camera, found in a drawer on the side of the lectern, replaces the overhead transparency projector. Anything placed beneath the document camera is projected.
Both rooms were cleaned after the completion of their refresh.
An audiovisual system tutorial video is available for instructors who need assistance in a refreshed lecture hall.
Academic Computing & Media Services (ACMS) is proud to raise the quality of classrooms and lecture halls throughout campus through the Lecture Hall and Classroom Refresh Project in conjunction with Administrative Computing & Telecommunications (ACT) and Facilities Management.
