Community Website Changes Implemented

April 6, 2017

We have implemented the Batten Community Website to reflect a User Centered communities.  The Alumni Advisory Council and the Batten Graduate council now have presence on the website and have contributed content and ideas for how they would like to use the website.  We have iniated a blog that will be moderated by the Alumni council though all may submit.  Still to come is a new look for the website and searchable directory of Alumni and students.  Please note the directory and information will only be visible by Batten community members: Students of Batten, Alumni, Faculty & Staff.  A community members will have to logon in order to see member information.    

Seminar Room AV changes

February 12, 2016

We added a projector to the Seminar Room and this morning we added a temporary screen control located on the cabinent side of the room.  The projector is not integrated with the rest of the AV just yet so you will need to power it on with a remote and connect a laptop to it directly.  It is possible for many machine types to push two video sources at the same time, so it is possible to connect to the projector AND to the Display boards on the walls.  Mac Pro’s and the X1 Carbon in particular can do this.  James and I are glad to help assist ANYTIME, just let us know.  

The control for the screen and AV should be integrated into the programing on the 8th of March.

Best,

Scott Adams
