Software Changes to Instructor Computers for Fall 2012

The software loaded on media classroom instructor computers has been updated for Fall. There are some key changes and additions:

  • Turning Technologies (Clickers) student response systems software released an upgrade that includes several changes. Canvas integration for clicker registration is also complete. For Turning Technologies user guides and trainings, click here.
  • A new version of Pixelture's LearnSpace has been installed on every standard instructor station. This software allows you share the projector screen space with your students, from their laptops. For Pixelture user guides and trainings, click here.
  • We are piloting a virtual desktop product for instructors who may need access to specialized software at the instructor station, and who cannot bring a laptop to class. It is called Stoneware.
