  • Director, CITES ClassTech
  • Brian McNurlen
  • Sr. Coordinator of Classroom Support and
    Training, CITES ClassTech
  • Matt Sherer

    ClassTech

2
The Current Situation
3
What are the ITS classrooms?
  • Typically the instructor cabinet contains
  • PC computer
  • Laptop connection
  • VCR
  • Visual Presenter
  • Microphone
  • Some rooms have only
  • Laptop connection
  • VCR
  • Referred to as Partial ITS
  • All are connected to an LCD projector

4
2003 Faculty Survey
  • 80 of instructors use the technology every class
    session they teach
  • 81 say it is very important to their teaching
  • One-third use a laptop when they teach
  • Majority are using PowerPoint, but also
  • Courseware Management (WebCT, Blackboard)
  • Domain-specific (AutoCAD, Pro Engineer, SPSS)
  • Simulations and videos
  • The survey report for 2003 can be found at
  • http//www.cites.uiuc.edu/classtech

2003 Faculty Survey
6
2003 Faculty Survey
7
2004 Faculty Survey
  • 281 responses, 15 of population
  • Student devices and active learning
  • 25 said students will do e-mail, off-task
    behaviors
  • 30 said we should take a wait-and-see approach
  • 45 said we should have some device to promote
    active learning

8
Resident versus Laptop Computer
  • Resident appears more reliable a/v-wise
  • Dont have to lug any equipment
  • No set-up time
  • Less expensive for instructor
  • Laptop is easy to keep up-to-date
  • Save your passwords
  • Manage big media files easier
  • Everything in one place

2004 Faculty Survey
10
Interesting Observations
  • Students conducting presentations
  • Increasing in popularity
  • Raises issues concerning access, purpose
  • Using music to set the mood
  • Voice over PowerPoint
  • Remote instructor
  • Local assistant clicks through slides
  • Repackaging existing media
  • Using video from manufacturer-provided tapes
    (Schmidt, FSHN)
  • Using film and audio from original sources
    (Wickesberg, Psych)

    customizable w/off the shelf software)
  • With or without an in-room user panel
  • User programmable automated functions for AV
    system and room functions
  • Use industry standard Ethernet protocols
  • Self generating messages

26
Small Networked AV System
  • Wide range of ready made tools available
  • RS-232 control, IR control, IO ports, and relays
  • User programmable scripts for automated functions
  • Use industry standard Ethernet protocols
  • Multi-user support
  • Remote monitoring, control, and reporting
  • Allows remote status checks and user assistance

28
Large Networked AV System/Room
  • All of the small AV system features, only more
    in-depth and more powerful
  • A great deal of customizing with programming
    through code writing
  • Peripheral selection is greater
  • Touch panels w/video, wireless, 2-way
    communications for status
  • Can link master controllers of different AV
    systems for network interfacing to common less
    sophisticated or limited systems such as building
    control and access systems
  • Siebels Andover to AMX example

29
Scheduling (AMXs Meeting Manager)

    capability to schedule room access and functions
  • Can be used as a stand alone, or with
    Outlook/Exchange or GroupWise
  • Offers a Help Desk feature
  • HTML user interface allows
  • access to a rooms schedule
  • search rooms based on specific requirements
  • show all items needing attention
  • view and manage all system logs

30
Network Storage Players
31
Network Storage Players
  • Content on Demand
  • TCP/IP based
  • High quality MPEG-2
  • Play-list based operation
  • Playback content as a looping program,
  • Single-play program
  • After down load play-out of the content can
    happen even if network has been lost
  • 40GB hard drive
  • 18 hours of video compressed at bit rate of 4Mb/s
  • 8 hours of video compressed at a bit rate of
    9Mb/s
  • RS-232 or GUI user interface for control

32
HDTV
  • (or anything but 43)

33
HDTV
  • HDTV has a 169 aspect ratio
  • Normal video is 43, most computers 54
  • To maintain viewer distance will need to have a
    wider image
  • This is causing a transition as equipment is
    retired and replaced
  • Computers are forcing this change in the
    classroom faster than broadcast/professional
    video advancements
