“Technology has changed so rapidly over recent years, and there are many new teaching tools available to faculty,” said Melvin Shelton, AVS supervisor. “We want to make sure our faculty and staff know about the technology that’s available to them and use it to enhance learning in the classroom.”

“Technology rich” classrooms and other spaces, including the auditorium in the newly renovated Smith Brasher Hall, typically have a podium with projector, multimedia presentation and control system, desktop computer with DVD player, internet access, installed speakers and a presentation screen.

AVS also provides Computers on Wheels (COWs), LCD video/data projectors, computers, portable PA systems, recording equipment, document cameras, LCD monitor carts with DVD players and laptop connections, and video camcorders.

AVS technicians can also assist you with video conferencing units at Main, Montoya, Westside and Rio Rancho campuses, and the Advanced Technology Center. AVS supports portable video conferencing with SKYPE for Business.  

Need help with technology for presentations? AVS offers consultation services to CNM faculty and staff on the identification, purchase and use of instructional and presentation technology.

Professionals in AVS research emerging technology and provide clients with assistance in the design of media presentation room systems. They also train faculty on how to operate AV equipment before they try it in their classrooms. AVS offers hands-on training on all of its equipment for individuals or groups.

“It’s that simple,” Shelton said. “We want to help faculty and staff take advantage of the technology that’s available to them.”
