Interactive Smartboards

Four of our study rooms are equipped with Interactive Smartboards, which project an image onto a wall and allow someone to interact with the image on the wall using a special pen. This is beneficial for students who wish to work on a presentation as well as those who wish to work collaboratively on a project in a more hands-on manner. This technology allows students to write on documents, videos and PowerPoint presentations instead of merely typing notes or comments.

Livescribe Pens

Academic Support and Tutoring uses special technology that allows students to record what is said and what is written by using a special pen by Livescribe. The pens use a special paper to record writing and save notes in a variety of formats, including a text file, an image, an audio file or a "pencast," which is similar to a video. Each session of data that is recorded can be uploaded to a computer and shared with an individual, study group, class, or other appropriate recipients. This product allows students to work with technology that is no more complicated than a pen and paper. However, this technology allows for easy recording and easy digital distribution. Please ask for a demonstration.

Online Office Hours

Faculty have the opportunity to use our resources to work with students online using live technology. Faculty may reserve a study room to serve as a make-shift office while they "go online" to virtually meet with students. We have numerous laptops, HD webcams, and multiple platforms that support online communication between faculty and students. Additionally, we can help faculty get started by showing them how to meet with their students.

Additionally, students who have been asked to meet with an instructor "virtually" may come to Academic Support and use our technology.
