Students collaborate work with new hub

IUS Horizon October 21, 2012
The IT Department added two new collaboration hub tables on the second floor lounge of Hillside Hall. Finished just a week before fall classes began, this source of technology allows students to share individual work from their laptops through a big screen TV. “This is brand new for this campus,” Tom Sawyer, chief information officer for the IT Department, said. “This is as good as you’re going to see anywhere in the country,” Sawyer said. “Nobody else has done it. The company that put this together for us had never done one like this.” The collaboration hub tables work by letting up to four students connect their laptops or tablets to the TV screen by connecting a chord to their computers. The chords are kept in a small black box on the table, which also brings up a touch screen panel.
