The Innovation Studio, room 011 in the basement, has a different teaching station setup then the standard classrooms (117, 021, and 018). 

The main variance in the classroom teaching station is that The Innovation Studio does not have a primary tower with a Local PC, DVD Player, and Document camera, instead the teaching station is only two panels, the Input Selector and the Video input panel, which are explained below.

Overview of Classroom Setup

  • At the front of the room, you will see the Projector, and Teaching Workstation.
