ITaP provides faculty and staff with the use of computer and network-based instructional applications in the classroom. Windows-based personal computers are available in these classroom locations.

These PC's are configured like those found in ITaP instructional labs and require users to log in using a Purdue career account login and password. Network resources and many common software applications are available. From these workstations users may:

  • Use PowerPoint presentations
  • Demonstrate software
  • Play CDs, DVDs, video and audio files
  • Access the internet
  • Use files from a CD or USB device
  • Access materials in your Purdue Career Account
  • Take attendance, give assessments, and get instant feedback with i>clicker

You may also bring in your own laptop computer. Computer projection is available from the instructional PC or from your own laptop.

Wireless microphones can be used in these classrooms, but the instructor must purchase a wireless mic transmitter and be in a room with a wireless mic receiver. 

Many of the classrooms now have a  wide screen monitor and projector. Also, pen-based monitors are installed in the following rooms: CL50 224, EE 129, LYNN 1136, PHYS 112, and PHYS 114. Instructors must purchase their own pen; the Wacom Grip Pen is recommended.

Solstice Pod wireless display receivers are in CRTN 1011, LILY 1105, LILY 3102, PHYS 114, WTHR 172, WTHR 200, and every classroom in WALC. Questions about using the Pod should go to tlt-consulting.

Requests to schedule classes or events in these classrooms are processed through the Office of the Registrar.
