Video conferencing continues to be a valuable option to connect with others online. The equipment in these rooms is scheduled to be updated in summer 2018.

The new features will include an improved touchscreen system, larger displays, a new ceiling array microphone to record students, and new cameras that have the ability to automatically track anyone who speaks. Additionally, USB-C will be added as a presentation source at the podium, similar to other general purpose classrooms that will be upgraded.
