Software on the computer collects the responses and displays a histogram of the results when voting has finished. The instructor can choose to indicate which was the correct answer, or can withhold this information to promote discussion. All of this is easily set up by the instructor using free software from TurningPoint.

As the name Multi-Media Room suggests, these rooms can perform numerous functions. One popular use is the ability to create narrated demonstrations videos of any computer-based activity on Mac or Windows. We can then post these demonstrations on the SAS media server for students to view whenever they are ready to start the assignment. You can expect to find all the popular academic applications commonly found in our labs.
