Experience cutting edge technology with: Google, Apple, Samsung, Microsoft, NBC and others. This is not the same personal electronics that you may experience at a local big box store, but technology that will help keep you and your students at the forefront.
Here is a sampling of the technology you will experience:
* Google Indoor Maps:The CSU Library is transmitting three demential building maps that allows student the ability to find their location,on different floors on their Android smartphone.
* Apple iBooks Author: What Apple did to music with iTunes they are now offering to electronic publishing. This will enable students and professors the ability to create their own electronic books, journal and papers, all with cutting edge images, audio and video.
* Samsung Touch Sensitive Display Table. You may have seen something like this on a futuristic show, where people move computer screen items with the wave of their hands, well the future is here, but with a large table display.
* NBC Learn: What if you had access to the entire NBC news video archives regarding: science, current events, heritage studies, government, business, engineering, health, and other subjects? Students now have that access with NBC Learn.
