Most of the classrooms and labs on campus are equipped with a teaching station. While there are some differences amongst the teaching stations, they are all very similar. Most are equipped as follows:
- An internet equipped computer
- A Document Camera which is universally replacing the overhead projector because of it's high tech features. The doc cam has the capability of showing a greater range of document formats such as non transparent documents or objects & slides; zoom in and out to greater depths as well as take still pictures.
- A single state of the art Crestron Remote Control which can handle the lighting in the room, the projector, the VCR, DVD, Microphone and television signal.
- A DVD player which at this time will only play NTSC Region 1 DVDs
Information about teaching stations is also available.
With over 500 computers in student computer labs, Furman offers a wealth of computer resources for students. The software available in the computer labs provides students with access to the software applications used by faculty in the classroom.
In addition to the labs, students are able to use classroom teaching stations when classrooms are not in use by a class. There are also several hundred computers available for student use in faculty research labs.
