What's NEW!

New Classrooms

We continue to expand our services across campus to meet the growing demand for Distance Education solutions and programs. Beginning in fall 2015, two new DE classrooms will go online in the Watson School of Education, increasing the total number of Distance Education enabled classrooms in the Education building to seven. In the ongoing effort to provide the best customer service to our faculty and students who use these classrooms, each of the rooms is supported from one central control room by technicians who are readily available to provide technical assistance and respond to any questions that may arise.

Online Collaboration Tools

In addition to connectivity with professional grade video conferencing solutions, our classrooms seamlessly connect with remote participants anywhere in the world via their personal computers or other mobile devices.  Along with providing support for the UNCW Virtual Classroom platform (currently WebEx), we also support a wide array of other online collaboration tools including Skype, Google Hangouts, GoTo Meeting, Adobe Connect and more. 

Classroom & Personal Desktop Capture 

Classroom and personal desktop capture solutions are available to enable any class, meeting or event to be recorded, archived and made available for live or on-demand streaming to remote participants and distance learners regardless of their location. Individual accounts are also available, enabling faculty to record, upload, edit and manage their own content from any device or location.

TelePresence Classrooms

Our two TelePresence Classrooms (Ed Building #368 and King #203) provide state of the art, full HD and immersive conferencing environments for academic classes or meetings of any type featuring connectivity to remote participants and distance learners anywhere in the world.
