New Computer Classrooms for General Use Being Developed at the Discovery Park

By Dr. Elizabeth Hinkle-Turner, Student Computing Services Manager

Upon request from and in collaboration with the Office of the Provost, Student Computing Services of CITC ACS has begun developing several general use computer classrooms with the first four facilities built and housed at the Discovery Park. As '110 classrooms' these computer rooms can be reserved by anyone for a class. Interested personnel should contact the Registrar's Office.

These rooms are still being developed and fine-tuned, though two 48-seat downstairs PC classrooms and one 24-seat upstairs PC classroom have been finished for the most part. New 'hide-away' computer desks will arrive in December for the downstairs rooms making them even more flexible for classes.

A fourth room will have iMacs in a 'pod' format with multiple large screens for sophisticated projection and small group collaboration. This room is currently being completed by the seemingly tireless classroom desktop support crew of computer systems manager, Curry Searle, and his assistant, Chris Lacko.

Interested faculty and staff are strongly encouraged to contact either Elizabeth Hinkle-Turner, Curry Searle, or the Registrar's Office for more information about these classrooms. Come see and use them soon - they are providing much flexibility to general class lecturing here at UNT!
