Transforming Education with Technology in VCU Centrally Managed Classrooms

In the Fall of 2023, the Academic Technologies' MSS Classroom Support team conducted a survey to collect feedback regarding faculty use of technologies in centrally managed classrooms. Survey feedback is analyzed and used to gauge the effectiveness of our classroom technology, as well as the support of this technology in meeting instructional needs. This feedback plays a significant role in the assessment and planning for future classroom technology upgrades.

  • 102 faculty responded to the survey, representing 86% of VCU Colleges/Schools.
  • 51% of VCU academic buildings contain centrally managed classrooms.
  • There are 162 centrally managed classrooms: 110 MP Campus and 52 MCV Campus.
