Welcome to Learning Technologies at Emporia State University. We are tasked with supporting educational technologies for faculty, staff, and students. Some of our services include: classroom support, video services, course design, research, 3D printing, class presentations, workshops, and training opportunities. Plus more! To get started, choose a service below:
LEARNING SPACES @ ESU
Learning Technologies offers one of the most sophisticated training venues on campus. The Interactive Learning Space includes three large LCD screens; a 95” interactive whiteboard; AppleTV; Microsoft Kinect capabilities; wireless access; movable tables, and more. Multiple presentations can be run inside the room simultaneously. We typically offer more than 40 training opportunities every semester in this facility. However, any group on campus is welcome to utilize the “Learning Space”.
Learning Technologies provides support for nearly 150 classrooms across campus. Called Learning Spaces, we offer both a Tier I and Tier II level of technology integration. Tier I rooms include a PC or Mac, audio system, projector, DVD/VHS player, document camera, and other related technologies. Tier II rooms normally include a PC or Mac and a projector only. The newest generation of Enhanced Classrooms include a smaller, more ergonomic and physically accessible podium. Several rooms across campus also include interactive, digital whiteboards that provide electronic writing and presentation.
There are several technologies that are being integrated into the classroom currently and many more that are still being researched. Some of the more common technologies we have implemented include:
Learning Technologies supports the iClicker classroom response system. This is one of the most sophisticated classroom systems available today. Students can either purchase a clicker from the bookstore, or download the software onto their Android or Apple phone. iClicker is the only response system that is accessibility certified by the National Federation for the Blind.
Learning Technologies provides Panopto lecture capture support in several rooms across campus. The latest generation of these rooms includes two remote-control cameras and built-in room microphones. This system allows faculty to record their lecture and make it available via the Learning Management System immediately following class. Faculty can also use Panopto on their PC or Mac using a webcam or the laptop camera. There is even a mobile version of Panopto for faculty and students to record from the field.
A lightboard is a piece of glass that is mounted in an aluminum frame. Our 3D printer was used to print all of the parts that connect the glass and metal together, as well as the LED lights that illuminate the writing. Faculty can use this technology to record lectures for their class. There are currently two lightboards on campus for faculty to use.
We are currently using Zoom as our main web conferencing software on campus. To get started with Zoom conferencing, log in to the website at: https://emporiastate.zoom.us/.
