Shameless plug department: Campus Technology has posted an article on my law school’s state of the art classroom technology. Here’s a summary:
However, the McGuinn Ceremonial Courtroom, used in trial advocacy courses, is the smartest of the smart--loaded with technology that includes three video cameras, bench and ceiling microphones, two projection screens to handle the presentation of "evidentiary displays," a sophisticated audio system that levels out the variable volume of speakers, and an assisted listening system for people who are hard of hearing.
This classroom, like the others, is hooked up to a centralized control center where media services staff can respond to instructor needs, handle recording of lectures, and manage operations of the video cameras. It also has its own control booth where staff can control media operations going on in the room.
