YouTube Launches Site for Schools

Posted by Jerry Doll on Thu, Dec, 15, 2011 @ 15:12 PM

YouTube asks the question, "Why should schools use video in the classroom?" 

They answer:  It's a chance to engage students in learning, spark conversations, bring lessons to life, collaborate with other teachers, and more. Enter, "YouTube for Schools."

This new section of YouTube features nearly half a million videos (as of this writing) featuring student-safe lessons on science, language, world events, and more.

NOVA Classrooms at Towson University Attract Attention

Posted by Jerry Doll on Mon, Dec, 05, 2011 @ 08:12 AM

My most recent stop on my ongoing video/photo tour was a return to Towson University located in Towson, Maryland.  This beautiful campus is home to more than 21,000 students.

We had visited them in April 2011 to grab some footage and photos of their NOVA classrooms in their School of Nursing and the College of Liberal Arts.  This time around, we returned to the College of Liberal Arts to take a peek at a couple of new classrooms that include the NOVALinked™ system.

My recent visit to NOVA classrooms and training rooms out West

Posted by Jerry Doll on Mon, Oct, 31, 2011 @ 15:10 PM

I just got back from two very successful video and photo shoots at a couple of recent NOVA installations.

The first location was a training room located at Mr. Copy, a Xerox copy center located in San Diego, CA.  The facility recently installed several 26 Series tables, most with The Trolley™ E-Class monitor lift system, connected by NOVALinked™.  The room utilizes a Crestron™ controller which allows the trainer to raise or lower the flat panel displays whenever needed — with the touch of a button.  The furniture includes an iMod™ compartment which allows all of the cabling and wiring to be hidden in the modesty panel of each unit.  A modern looking perforated metal modesty cover keeps the behind-the-scenes technology out of sight and out of mind.

The right furniture can be the key to healthier working and learning

Posted by Jerry Doll on Tue, Oct, 18, 2011 @ 13:10 PM

Wherever you work with a computer, be it at an office, in a classroom, or at a desk in a cubicle, your furniture can either work with you to increase your productivity or work against you to the point that your health is adversely affected.

When your neck is hurting, or you are experiencing numbness in your fingers, is far too late to consider the shortcomings of your current work area's furniture. Fortunately, common sense has much to say when it comes to picking the best working set up for using a computer for hours at a time.

NOVALinked™ and The Trolley™ Let You "Take Control" of the Classroom

Posted by Jerry Doll on Tue, Aug, 30, 2011 @ 10:08 AM

One of our recent taglines for our NOVALinked™ product was the subject of a couple of comments on one of our social media sites.  The tagline is “Take Control…”  The ellipsis can then be followed by the words: classroom, training room, lecture hall, office, customer service, reception area, etc.  To understand the idea behind “Take Control…” it’s important to understand what NOVALinked™ is and how it works with The Trolley™ E-Class monitor lifts.
