The 438HM Classroom

 A Collaborative and Interactive Learning Environment

The 438HM space is designed to accommodate both the instructor's and student's needs for collaborative and interactive learning by utilizing the latest in technologies and furnishings available for today's classroom.

The room's furniture can be easily moved to allow different floor plan options, plus all the tables have writable whiteboard surfaces. The room's different furniture configurations are downloadable and available on PDF here. Faculty can email their preferred floor plan (A-H) from the posted PDFs to, so we can display your choice on the classroom's screens and have the students arrange the furniture before the session begins.

Among the classroom's many innovative features we have movable whiteboard surfaced walls, behind which one finds the room's state of the art interactive Audio-Visual system that includes two large 70-inch LCD Touch Panel Screens for instructor's annotations and two fixed 10 ft. / 16:9 aspects screens for LCD projection, all controlled by Crestron Touch Panels. The classroom has four built-in HD video cameras with overhead microphone arrays for both video conferencing and capturing. There are two additional 70 inch LCD monitors (without touch capabilities) located on the window walls for group collaboration.
