ITS Classroom Technology

ITS places a top priority on providing faculty with the latest classroom and instructional technology, allowing them to create an engaging and multimedia rich learning environment for UWF students. Classroom Technology includes both technology in the classroom and training on emerging instructional technologies.


What We Support

ITS places a top priority on providing faculty with the latest classroom technology, allowing them to create a multimedia learning environment for UWF students. All ITS supported technology-enhanced classrooms are configured as eClassrooms.

Classroom Types

eClassrooms include instructor computers, LCD projection and amplified sound systems, DVD players, and high-speed Internet. They also contain a document camera to display transparencies, documents, and other objects on screen. eClassroom touch panels control all of the technology in the room. Select eClassrooms are outfitted with SMART Sympodiums with on-screen annotation capability, which allows the instructor to write on the screen with digital ink.

Also available at UWF are Instructional Video Conferencing Classrooms, which include cameras and microphones to conduct classes with students in other Instructional Video Conferencing Classrooms, whether they be in Fort Walton Beach or the other side of the world. These classrooms also contain all of the features found in our eClassrooms.

The online Classroom List identifies all UWF classrooms and the technology available in each room. The classroom list also includes the room schedule and photos of each room.
