The Walker Room also features a wall-mounted electric screen, a rolling cart allows for projection of a laptop or a DVD disc. Please note:  audio amplification of presentation originating from the cart, for example, an online video requires extra setup time.

Multimedia Developments Through the Years

 

Summer 2014 Rooms A and B were the venue for a latest digital upgrade and now feature widescreen HDMI and Blu-Ray disc projection. The overflow relationship between A and B was also digitally enhanced and 

Summer 2013 digital upgrade performed in Rooms C and F. The work will include fully functional HDMI and Blu-Ray disc projection and continuity for the VGA connections we have long provided.

Summer 2011 renovations focused on significant upgrades to student areas, and the coming of Jittery Joe's Coffee to our new student lounge and small group study rooms although none of this work had any effect on the school's technology offerings.

The Walker Room renovation added electric screen, rolling cart for projecting a laptop or DVDs. UGA PAWS wireless access was added in 2009.

Fall 2009 law school joined the UGA campuswide wireless network, PAWS.

During the Summer of 2008 in the Hatton Lovejoy Courtroom microphones and network connections were added to the judges' bench and the new advocates lectern has a wired mic. There is also a wireless, ear-bud device that pulls from the room's audio system (see Robin Jennings or JoEllen Childers). 

Cheeley Room equipment easier to operate via new wall-mounted touch panel installed in Dec 2007.

Rooms CDE and GHI were renovated during summer 2006.  Instructors now find same equipment functionality as before with the addition of touch control of room lighting. 

During the summer of 2002, the former law auditorium was completely transformed into two classroom spaces (Rooms A & B).  At the same time, the entire environ of Rooms F & J was renovated.

Law School's own wireless network created about 2001. Initially available in rgw two primary reading rooms of law library and most classrooms.

Our initial installation of multimedia to Rooms CFGJ was complete by Fall 1998.  Extension of multimedia functionality to all standard classrooms was begun in early 2002.  Major improvements included the addition of touch screen control of equipment and greatly enhanced image projection.  In summer 2006 the physical environment of Rooms CDE and GHI was greatly improved and the functionality of the instructional technology equipment in those rooms was upgraded though the only difference obvious to instructors may have been touch screen control of room lighting.
