Best training video: "Media Cabinet - New Centralized Control Panel" Kevin Huffaker, Texas State University, San Marcos
In the Spring of 2012 Classroom Technologies will be rolling out new and improved media cabinet technology to help professors with their instruction. Through Instructor feedback, classroom technologies has learned the current technological environment in the classrooms is hard to control & not consistent from classroom to classroom. This has prompted Classroom Technologies to re-think & design accessible & easy to use media cabinet technology that will be consistent from classroom to classroom.
Classroom Technologies wants to make sure its audience is not intimidated or surprised by the change. In response to this, we created this video to inform faculty of the new centralized control panel, and describe the overall benefits of this change.
