Wireless Network Coverage – General Assignment Classrooms
The Center for the Advancement of Teaching began working with Information Technology Services in 2014 to help coordinate the installation of campus wireless networking services for the General Assignment Classrooms. Initially, the emphasis for campus wireless networks has been in popular public locations (e.g. Ackerman Union, Kerckhoff Hall, Powell Library, etc.). Due to the development of teaching tools as the rapid growth of mobile devices, CAT and IT Services recognized the need for this technology within the general assignment classrooms and developed a schedule to have all 192 rooms completed by the end of the 2015-2016 academic year.
In Spring Quarter 2014, IT Services piloted wireless network coverage in two of the largest auditoria, Franz 1178 and Moore 100, as well as five classrooms in Bunche Hall. For Fall Quarter 2014, they completed coverage in four additional auditoria as well as four classrooms on the 3rd floor of Math Sciences. Starting in Winter Quarter 2015, they have been completing wireless coverage on a monthly basis. To verify if a general assignment classroom has WiFi, see the classroom list for specific information provided for each room.
