The University provides classrooms for all lecture classes. Campus-wide, but particularly in the Engineering Quadrangle area, these classrooms are outfitted with instructional technology sufficient to support high levels of audio/video/computer interactive multimedia course offerings. Most GCoE classes take place in GCoE facilities. All of the general purpose GCoE laboratories and several departmental laboratories also serve as computer classrooms. All GCoE classrooms have wireless networking capability and most also have power and data connections available at each desk. GCoE classrooms are outfitted with multimedia technology including data projectors, document cameras, VCR/DVD units, and connections for laptop display. Two GCoE classrooms have high definition video conferencing capabilities in addition to multimedia technology.
In addition to traditional classrooms, the GCoE has a computer laboratory (see description in the Laboratories page) in Carson Engineering Center that is scheduled for computer-based engineering courses. Outside of the GCoE, the University provides a number of specific classroom facilities for the televised exchange of courses within the State of Oklahoma using a compressed video format and significant resources exist for web-based conferencing of courses between campuses.
ISE works closely with the GCoE classroom scheduler to ensure access to GCoE classrooms and computer-labs for courses that are appropriate in enrollment and technology needs. However, as course enrollments have grown, ISE courses are being scheduled in whichever building on campus has a classroom with the needed capacity.
In addition, the GCoE provides twelve team rooms that are outfitted with multimedia technology and available for student use. Nine of the rooms have a large plasma display with laptop audio and video connections. The three remaining rooms have data projectors plus dual plasma displays and laptop audio and video connections.
