Digital Classrooms, previously referred to as smart or enhanced classrooms, allow you to incorporate technology into the learning environment for your students. These rooms are equipped with a projector and desktop computer with DVD/BluRay capability. A VGA connection with cable is available in all digital classrooms for laptop connectivity. Many, but not all, digital classrooms also have HDMI capability with a standard connection.
