Media Services

Technology supports teaching and learning in the classroom through the planning, support, and maintenance of Simmons' AV infrastructure.

Faculty and staff may also borrow non-standard equipment from the Service Desk.

Labs and Classrooms

We provide and maintain computer hardware and software as well as AV equipment in classrooms, study rooms, and event spaces throughout campus. Students can use the Media Viewing & Listening Room in Beatley library to view media checked out from the Library.

Audience Response Systems (clickers)

Faculty and staff may borrow Audience Response Systems (ARS), also known as clickers, for use in one-time events and meetings.

Television Services

Technology operates the Simmons Cable TV system, which includes television service to the Residence Halls and to the Main Campus. It also supports the announcement system which appears on monitors posted around campus.

Production Services

Technology provides multimedia capabilities for course-related content capture needs. We can advise on effective uses of video capture for instructor or student produced content. We can also provide some video production and post-production services for course-related content. For special events, we have external partners that can provide videography and post production services for a fee, depending on your requirements.

To make a media production request, please contact the Service Desk.
