Technology Enhanced Classrooms

Bretford Smart CartCIIs Classroom and Lab Support Services supports and maintains over 180 technology-enhanced classrooms for Tarleton's faculty and students. Beginning in 2007, CII has invested heavily in upgrading and installing new state-of-the-art technology components in classrooms on the Stephenville campus and at the Shafer and Hickman facilities in Ft. Worth. Our goal is to standardize classroom components so that faculty will have the same technologies whether they teach in the O.A. Grant Building, the Science Building, or at Hickman in Ft. Worth.

Our classrooms and instructional computer labs include the following components:

  • PCs
  • Projectors
  • Sympodiums and/or Smartboards
  • Document Cameras
  • Audio Equipment
  • HDMI Laptop connection
