Classroom Technology Reminder: Changes Coming in Fall 2022
To Know: Enterprise Technology & Services Learning Space Technology is transitioning classroom technology from analog (VGA connections and VHS players) to digital display technology (HDMI). ET&S completed this project over the summer and all instructors must use HDMI.
To Do: Instructors who still use VGA connections and/or VHS players should transition to HDMI by Fall 2022. If you have a KSC-issued computer, your device should have the connection and/or adapter needed to connect to the digital connections in the classroom. If you don’t have a KSC-issued computer, you’ll need to ensure your computer has a USB-C or a mini display port. For USB-C connections, a USB-C adapter will need to be purchased, and we recommend this one.
If you utilize VHS technology in your course instruction, we recommend you transition the material to DVD format. You may contact Eric Shannon at 603-358-2722 or via email Eric.Shannon@keene.edu for more information.
