Bring your lectures to life with our new collaborative touchscreen monitors
AVS announces five newly-enhanced rooms on campus featuring an 80” interactive touchscreen monitor. The following rooms have been updated to include this new touchscreen capability:
- Green 101
- Green 104B
- Green 117
- Kelly 114
- Pick 218
Our new touchscreen capable monitors bring your content to life by allowing dynamic interaction and collaboration. To start using one of our new touchscreen monitors you’ll need a laptop (Windows and Mac are supported) and a software driver.
For Windows laptops you can download the newest drivers here. After downloading, install both programs and you are ready to use any of our touchscreen monitors.
For Mac laptops you can download the newest driver here. After installing the driver, you’ll also need to install an annotation program of your choice. We recommend Ink2Go but you can use the program of your choice.
Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 773-834-4499 for touchscreen training requests or any other classroom technology questions.
