Each label will be appended with a fiscal year tag identifying when its associated instructional technology standards were defined or revised. For example, the beginning label for a small technology-enhanced classroom is TECH-SMALL_CLASSROOM.FY14.

* Tags classifying additional or specialty instructional features are added to any label beginning with TECH-SMALL CLASSROOM. Examples include -iTV (interactive television classroom), -WVC (web-based video conferencing), -LC (lecture capture), -COLL (collaborative classroom), and -SP (specialized).

** Document cameras have been removed in some classrooms by request of faculty. Please contact CIT at 836-5778 to request a document camera.
