IU Northwest makes significant tech improvements, including 60 additional computers and 20 wired workstations

IU Northwest recently renovated the Marram Hall Student Technology Center. The new space incorporates the latest in room design and technology. The campus has upgraded more than 100 computers for student use and added 60 additional computers and 20 workstations where students can use their own laptop computers or other devices.

IUN has also created its “Next Generation Classroom,” a special experimental classroom in Hawthorn Hall that contains all of the latest instructional tools.

Beth Van Gordon, chief information officer for IU Northwest, IU South Bend and IU Kokomo, said that a primary goal of IU Northwest’s University Information Technology Services is to provide technology environments that enrich students’ academic lives.

“The new Marram Student Technology Center represents the commitment to providing contemporary technology in open, flexible learning spaces. The new facility in Marram 103, and the experimental classroom in Hawthorn 329, promote and address the strategic commitment of the University’s IT Strategic Plan, ‘Empowering People.’ These two facilities promote innovative, engaging learning experiences that involve IT tools for creating content, for expressing viewpoints, for virtualizing experiences, and for collaborating.”
