Summer 2018 Classroom Technology Enhancements

News


Over the course of this summer, the IT Department will be making various technological updates around campus. We are always looking at ways to enhance your Adelphi experience, and these updates will help create some great technological improvements when you return for the fall semester. Right now, you can look through all of the upgrades that will be made and get a sneak peek of everything to look forward to the next time you’re on campus.

Multimedia Upgrades

PAC 54 Music Lab

2. 13 more classrooms’ technology to be upgraded (some will include new furniture and paint). This brings a total of over 15 classroom upgrades for this academic year.

Blodgett 104, 124, 201, 207 and 209, Social Work 128 and 306, Levermore 305, Earle Hall 101, 103 and 108, and Science 215 North and South

Software Upgrades

We’ll be upgrading to the Windows 10 operating system on all compatible devices in classrooms and computer labs. Windows 10 looks radically different than previous iterations of Windows, but works even better, plus it’s faster and more secure. 

As always, we’ll be updating all software as needed with the most recent security patches to keep you safe, and we’ll be working to install any new software requested by faculty. 

We are also working on acquiring additional Tableau academic licenses. With new licenses, we’ll be able to teach the Tableau data platform in a classroom setting to better support faculty teaching and to make the most out of the data available to us. 

Computer Replacement Plan

We’ll be replacing over 275 computers on campus so that you can work with the most recent technology.
