Updates

Faculty Classroom Profiles

To all faculty, if you have a profile on the classroom touch panels but have not updated it since before September 2013, please remember to do so.  Our department makes improvements to the classrooms every year and an outdated profile will load incorrectly or cause other problems with the overal functionality of the room.  Profiles should be updated once a year.  Your Wharton Computing Representative can help you.

Wharton Classroom Telepresence

In February 2013 Wharton and Cisco launched a Telepresence solution for the classroom.  These Telepresence spaces connect the Philadelphia and San Francisco campuses and make it possible to present and teach to a remote audience while still maintaining the look and feel of a traditional classroom experience for both the instructor and the students.   Read more about it here.
