The NTU Future Classroom is located on the 4th floor of the Zonghe Lecture Building at the Main Campus. The construction was completed in February 2020 and the classroom was officially opened in March. It is currently under the management of the Digital Learning Center, the Office of Academic Affairs.
Design features of the Future Classroom include:
Advanced teaching equipment: the Classroom offers 9 large interactive touch displays replacing traditional blackboards, 1 high-end touchscreen computer at the lectern, and other teaching equipment, which creates an ash-free, dust-free and pollution-free teaching environment.
IoT technology: the interactive touch display comes with the built-in digital whiteboard, with support functions such as internet connectivity, USB file access, and APP installation, which enables presentation of multiple teaching materials and remote teaching.
In line with the BYOD trend: the Classroom supports wireless projection from all kinds of laptops and mobile phones, which improves the source-switching efficiency and reduces layout issues or incompatibility; and the Classroom also provides fixed/extended power outlets for students to use their own devices.
Active learning environment: The classroom has features such as one-touch screen broadcasting, movable desk and chair, adjustable lighting, and writable desks and wall surfaces, which increases interactions between teacher and students as well as student groups.
