Sympodium in LA-124

This summer OIT's Broward Technology Services (BCS) completed the transformation of the last set of general purposes classrooms into e-classrooms. A total of 11 rooms were upgraded on the Davie campus with state-of-the art technology, including ceiling-mounted LCD projectors and speakers, teaching consoles with PCs and DVD/VCR players, and Sympodiums.

The Sympodium is a new interactive whiteboard technology that allows the instructor to use an interactive pen to write and control the presentation. You can view a demo of this system at Smart Technologies Web Site.

This transformation was part of a larger effort involving all FAU campuses ( see OIT's Fall 2009 Newsletter). The following classrooms were upgraded:

  • LA-124
  • LA-152
  • LA-228
  • LA-243
  • LA-244
  • LA-339
  • LA-415A
  • LA-415B
  • LA-432B
  • LA-456
  • ES-116
