Educational Technology Tools:

Media Lab
A multimedia room featuring both a Windows and Mac machine. Can be booked to record audio and/videos to create learning content. You can book the room by calling (248) 370-4566.

VR Lab
The Virtual Reality Lab includes an HTC Vive room scale system that uses Steam to access VR content. While one person is immersed in VR, others can view a live feed of the experience from the e-Learning Faculty Lab. Alternatively, you can have singular experiences to explore available VR educational content. You can book the room by completing the VR Lab/Lightboard Reservation Form.

The Lightboard can be used to create instructional videos for your online and face-to-face courses. Video and audio is recorded while you teach your lesson on the Lightboard, much like you would do on a marker board in class.
