Gaylord College Technology Commitment
The Gaylord College of Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of Oklahoma is the first collegiate journalism program in the United States to be named an Apple Distinguished Program for its comprehensive integration of Apple-inspired technology throughout its building and curriculum. The Apple Distinguished Program designation is reserved for academic units that are recognized centers of educational excellence and leadership.
Inside Gaylord Hall, the College provides students with a two large multimedia open labs, three advanced computer-assisted teaching spaces, 10 video-editing bays, two broadcast training facilities and three audio training suites. Gaylord Hall is also an active wireless building, offering students the ability to connect to the OU computer network from any classroom or public area. Many students choose to work in the beautiful Edith Kinney Gaylord Library located on the second floor of the building or in the community spaces on the first floor.
Gaylord Hall is capable of handling any computer platform. However, the faculty of the college have examined the curriculum and workload of students attending the college and encourage students who are considering purchasing a laptop computer to use during their college studies to select an Apple computer. The University of Oklahoma has arranged for special discounts from Apple on both hardware and software.
