Hilton Room Goes High Tech

A panorama view of the new classroom

This summer, the newly remodeled Hilton Flex Classroom became the first of its kind at Cal Poly Pomona to offer an advanced audio-visual system that fosters interactive student-faculty participation.

The room features four interactive projectors – controlled by the faculty instructor – with the option to wirelessly be controlled by mobile devices. All four interactive projectors have the ability to display a single image as well as display a separate image on each of the projectors simultaneously. The technology found in this new flex classroom is supported by the university’s I&IT and Help Desk staff.

Collins College faculty, who will teach in the flex classroom this fall, are encouraged to adapt their curriculum to incorporate this new technology. With the assistance of e-learning and I&IT, training sessions for faculty were held in early August and are being scheduled for September. The fall quarter will serve as a trial-run for the new technology and will aid decisions to use similar advanced technology throughout the building expansion project.
