Audio Visual Equipped Classroom (AVEC)

Welcome to the resource space for AVECs. The term AVEC stands for Audio Visual Equipped Classrooms and it was coined to separate classifications from rooms that had SMART equipment. Now, as classroom technology has become more sophisticated, AVEC is a reflection of various types of technology that includes SMART devices. 

Our most sophisticated classrooms include:

  • Wireless connectivity for computer devices

  • High definition connections

  • Blu-ray disc players

  • High definition document cameras

  • Lecture capture capability

  • wireless control of system

As you learn to use these technologies, you will experience opportunities to enhance pedagogy and create a more fulfilling experience for students.

Welcome to the resource space for AVECs. The term AVEC stands for Audio Visual Equipped Classrooms and it was coined to separate classifications from rooms that had SMART equipment. AVEC more accurately reflects the types of rooms that have the installed audio video equipment.

AV Technology in our classrooms has gotten increasingly complex over the years. New features are being introduced with every iteration. With new technology, we frequently encounter new challenges. The entire Information Technology department hopes to bring you timely and satisfying resolutions to these issues. North Park Students, Faculty, and Staff can assist IT by being detailed and specific with issues that arise. Thank you, in advance, for working with us as we continue to integrate new technologies into our campus life and learning.
