Electronic Collaborative Learning Center

The Electronic Collaborative Learning Center (ECLC) is a classroom in Stern 14 designed to meet the advancing technological needs of the faculty and students at Mills College. Faculty members are encouraged to use the room for semester-long classes or individual class sessions where the innovative use of technology can enhance pedagogical practice.

eclcThe ECLC classroom contains three clusters with six computers and two clusters with four computers for a total of 26 student stations. All of the computers have Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, Powerpoint, etc.). Two computers in each cluster have SPSS. The instructor’s station features all of the software that is available on the student computers. A printer and scanner are available for use in the classroom. A VCR is provided for watching videos. For the times when no technology is needed, the computer monitors can be lowered into the desktop, providing a flat work surface for individual or group activities.

LanSchool's Classroom Management Software allows the teacher to broadcast the instructor’s computer desktop to the students’ computers for class presentations and demonstrations. The teacher can also view and interact with the students’ computer desktops from the instructor’s station, enabling the teacher to observe student work, and offer assistance. A particular student desktop can be broadcast to the rest of the class as an example. The software also provides chat, file sharing, and quizzing features, offering a variety of technological solutions for enhancing classroom activities.
