DLP1 (ITV) vs. DLP2 (Hyflex)

There are two standard DLP classroom packages available on campus.  Each is purpose-built to facilitate the best experience for its intended use-case.

DLP1 classrooms are modeled after traditional "ITV" (Interactive Television) classrooms, intending to connect two similar rooms to each other.  Traditionally, one classroom in San Marcos will connect to a similar classroom in Round Rock for a synchronous class section taught by a single faculty member at either physical location.  These classrooms prioritize the ability for in-person students at each location to see and hear each other, bridging two classrooms into one.

DLP2 classrooms are based upon the newer "hyflex" instructional method where a faculty and some students are in one physical classroom while other students join the class virtually using Zoom.  These classrooms prioritize the traditional in-person student experience and the ability for the instructor to interact easily with the remote students.

DLP Features

  • Easy to use tablet display that controls all DLP functions
  • Whiteboarding
  • Screen sharing
  • Lecture capture with recording (via Zoom)
  • Screen capture via the room's document camera
