Main Reception

4070 Wescoe is the unit's "front door" where patrons come to check out videos and equipment, to ask questions and to make requests. It is also the heart of the unit, an active learning space designed to facilitate both individual and group work with technology.  The space provides access to computer workstations, a collaborative work area with extensive whiteboard space and a social conversation area with seating for eight. The space also includes a soundproofed mini-studio designed to create audio supplements for in-class or web-based instruction.

There is also a drop box to the right of the door to 4070 Wescoe to return materials when EGARC is closed.

Frank Bangs Memorial Classroom

The Frank Bangs Memorial Classroom (4066 Wescoe) is an active learning classroom assigned to instructors for the entire semester. The room contains a movable instructor podium and six 6-person group stations that can be easily reconfigured. Each group station has a Windows computer, a 55" flat-screen monitor, and wall-mounted laptop and USB inputs that connect directly to computer or monitor. Whiteboard surfaces cover most of the walls, and two LCD projectors display a mirrored image on opposite ends of the large classroom. In addition to a Blu-ray player, a DVD/VCR unit, a document camera and both analog and digital laptop inputs, the movable instructor podium features a SMART Podium for annotating directly on the computer screen. The instructor machine also runs software that allows the instructor to share the podium display with all of the individual group displays, share the display of one group with all of the other groups, restrict web use, and send out polls for class feedback.

The was built in Summer 2014 as a collaborative project between the Office of the Provost, Design and Construction Management, Information Technology, and the Ermal Garinger Academic Resource Center.

Both Windows and Mac operating systems come with built-in language keyboards that allow you to type in foreign languages.  While many foreign language keyboards map quite closely to the default English (U.S.) keyboard, there are several that have no correspondence at all.  Instead, these keyboards are based on the typewriter keyboards of their home countries.  For those seeking a shortcut to avoid learning the "real" keyboard layouts, EGARC provides free, homophonic (phonetic) keyboards for Windows that map the letters in the foreign language to the nearest sound equivalent on the U.S. keyboard.  The zipped installation packages found below are compatible with 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows 10.
