The Walker Room also features a wall-mounted electric screen. A rolling cart allows for projection of a laptop or a DVD disc and there is wireless audio from components in the cart.
Rooms A&B are equipped for "overflow," permitting people in one of the rooms to see and hear what is happening in the other room. So, the cabinets include a cassette tape player, a hand-held "club" wireless mic and a camera at back of each room with basic scene-selection controls available from the touch screen.
Summer 2011 renovations focused on significant upgrades to student areas, and the coming of Jittery Joe's Coffee to our new student lounge and study area, but none of this work had any effect on technology offerings; not at all.
The Walker Room renovation added electric screen, rolling cart for projecting laptop, DVD/VCR with wireless (or, wired) audio. UGA PAWS wireless access was added in 2009.
Fall 2009 law school joined the UGA campuswide wireless network, PAWS.
Summer 2008 work in the Hatton-Lovejoy Courtroom microphones and network connections were added to the judges' bench and the new advocates lectern has a wired mic that can be mounted to the top. There is also a clip-on wireless mic that feeds into the room's audio system (see Robin Jennings or JoEllen Childers).
Cheeley Room equipment easier to operate via new wall-mounted touch panel installed in Dec 2007.

Our initial installation of multimedia to Rooms CFGJ was complete by Fall 1998. Extension of multimedia functionality to all standard classrooms was begun in early 2002. Major improvements included addtion of touch screen control of equipment and greatly enhanced image projection. In summer 2006 the physical environment of Rooms CDE and GHI was greatly improved and the functionality of the instructional technology equipment in those rooms was upgraded though the only difference obvious to users may be touch control of room lighting.
