  • VCR and DVD players removed from Folwell Hall classrooms in Spring 2015

    As the University works to provide the latest technology to enhance learning, obsolete and failing platforms must be retired. During the 2015 Spring Semester, VCR and DVD players will be permanently removed from the general purpose classrooms in Folwell Hall. This is part of a multi-year plan designed to encourage the safe storage of materials online and to limit the upkeep on outdated platforms.


    The Office of Classroom Management will oversee the projection system upgrades and removal of the VCR/DVD players.


    Faculty and staff who require assistance in transferring their DVDs and tapes to a digital format can contact their department's relationship manager.
