Hardware and Software Demos
Instructors can test out instructional technologies without the hassle of signing up for an account or purchasing software or hardware. The lab provides instructors with the opportunity to test out and get recommendations for apps on both iOS and Android devices. Practice using classroom response systems (Poll Everywhere, TurningPoint clickers), and see how a Smart Pen works. Step-by-step guides, videos and try-it activities are available to follow along.
