(Interactive Classroom Lab)
The Smart Lab is used by language professors to provide students with a classroom lecture while using state-of-the-art teaching and collaboration tools. The lab is unique because professors are able to provide language proficiency through the use of digital recording software. Professors can use the projection screen to display video files as well as access audio files for oral assessments/testing.
Students enrolled in language courses (Spanish, American Language, ESL, French etc.) may use the Smart Lab when directed and assisted by the professor. The Smart Lab uses the Sanako Study 1200 software. This program allows professors and students to transfer audio files within the network.
Students can play audio and video files as well as record audio files for testing by the professors. Professors may also test students by using methods such as random pairing and group conferences.
