Have you noticed a change in the Campus Library study rooms?
Most rooms are now equipped with monitors that can be used to enhance your study experience! Just think of how productive your group will be when you can all collaborate on the same screen. All you need is a laptop, so bring your own or check one out at the Campus Library front desk. The monitors are HDMI, VGA, and a few are DVI compatible. Here are some examples of what you can do with this great technology:
Hook up your laptop and…
- Watch a documentary for your Women, Culture and Development class.
- Skype with an absent group member.
- Browse the UW Library’s catalog.
- Pull up a relaxing slideshow of nature pictures for your study session.
- Open a word document for your whole group to view.
- Search for articles for your project in the library databases.
- Lead a tutorial for your group on how to use Google Docs.
- Practice your PowerPoint presentation, or if you’re feeling bold, use Prezi.
- View materials from Electronic Reserves as a group.
- Collaborate with fellow students on building a resume or application for scholarships and jobs.
- Schedule phone or Skype interviews.
- Record your narration for an audio or video project.
