The Hyperstruction Toolset

The Hyperstruction Studio represents a combination of approaches, physical appointments, and technologies found in various classrooms / labs at UCR (but importantly, not in any single campus classroom).

Advanced Technologies

  • This advanced technology classroom supports 24 students with smart technologies, including a dual projection system supporting an array of sources. These sources consist of a networked computer with wireless peripherals, high-resolution document camera, audience response system, advanced switching and external interfaces for additional computers. The room is networked with data ports around the room in addition to wireless network coverage.

  • The furniture designed for this room is completed mobile and flexible. The design includes lightweight tables with wheels that can be arranged in any configuration supporting various size group collaboration; from pods to traditional classroom. The chairs are comfortable and also on wheels, supporting instant movement for group reconfiguration or teamwork.
  • A whiteboard rail system has been designed to support the sharing of ideas. Students and faculty can make annotations over multiple whiteboard panels that move from one wall to another, from one end to another.
  • The furniture designed for the Studio allows faculty to create and recreate on the spot. It gives faculty the ability to quickly and easily reconfigure the room to meet traditional as well as creative teaching and learning approaches.

  • An advanced facility (providing faculty and students advanced virtual collaboration capabilities) supporting 24 students contains all the components of an enhanced computer / lab classroom. High performance wireless laptop computers can support specialized learning. Faculty can move from traditional instruction involving active participation to individual research and peer to peer collaboration. One laptop for every student enables faculty to maximize the use of digital content in the classroom.
  • Outside of this initiative, C&C has acquired software licensing that supports advanced collaboration using laptop computers. This collaboration tool (Teamspot) extends the functionalities of the room system by allowing students to wirelessly collaborate and share laptop information on screen.
