Technology Classrooms

Classroom Central provides equipment, services, and support to help faculty and students take full advantage of the technology available in the University's technology classrooms. All technology classrooms are equipped with a hotline phone that automatically dials the Help Desk in the event technical support is needed. Questions and comments about ODU's technology classrooms can be sent to classroomcentral@odu.edu.

A Classroom Central Advisory Committee (CCAC) meets regularly to provide advice and guidance on classroom technology and makes decisions affecting the academic computing and communications environment.

Technology Classroom Equipment

All of our technology classrooms are equipped with a hotline phone, a computer, DVD/VCR or Blu-Ray/DVD player, laptop connection, data projector (mounted in the ceiling) and a sound system.
