Smart Classrooms

Most classrooms at USF are Smart Classrooms. These are technology enhanced classrooms which include projectors and other AV technologies aimed at enhancing learning and academic achievement. The Classroom Technology team is part of the Information Technology Services’ support of the USF community. Their role is to provide and support technology use in delivering instruction to USF students.
