Multimedia Technology

Multimedia Technologies Group provides and maintains presentation technology in support of instruction and special events. We drafted and implemented the Classroom Technology Plan, a commitment to classroom technology renewal and replacement. We have equipped 100% of UCR's general assignment classrooms with LCD data/video projectors, VHS VCRs, DVD players, computer interface, and network connections. Lecture halls were also equipped with wireless microphones, PC computers, and document cameras. Our commitment to instructional technology has led us to design and implement "smarter" classrooms.

Multimedia Services also delivers and operates presentation equipment in non-equipped spaces. With our videoconferencing technology, you can hold seminars, classes, or meetings with any UC campus or other sites worldwide. Our staff is available for consultation on classroom design issues or the planning of special events.

Mission Statement

As UCR's main presentation technology provider, we at Multimedia Technologies Group support the university's teaching mission by enhancing the quality and effectiveness of instructional delivery methods. With state-of-the-art media systems, we provide a means to achieve greater impact in the classroom, from idea inception to final solution.

    Empowering Educators through Advanced Classroom Resources

    UCR has 110 general assignment classrooms that are state-of-the-art teaching facilities. Multimedia Technology provides faculty with multimedia tools for all their instructional needs -- Smart Classrooms are equipped with a standard array of presentation equipment.

    All General Assignment classrooms have been upgraded with LCD Projectors (WXGA; 5000 to 10000 lumens). All classrooms have a room PC, document camera, touch panel control system, and touch monitor for an interactive whiteboard feature. Larger lecture halls have wireless microphone systems, PC computers, high-resolution document cameras, touch panel control systems, and interactive smart displays. Bluray, DVD, and VHS players can be requested to Multimedia Technologies and will be installed upon request.

    Faculty response to this upgrade effort has been overwhelmingly positive. 95% of faculty found the available technology meeting their pedagogical needs.

    As funding permits, Multimedia Technology will continue to upgrade presentation technology and provide better technical tools for faculty in the classroom.

  • Zoom Videoconferencing

    Distance Learning through Zoom Videoconferencing

Faculty, staff and students can participate in classes and meetings occurring at any location -- worldwide -- that is equipped to handle IP- or ISDN-based connections, be they government, private, or university facilities. Zoom videoconferencing is a great alternative to in-person meetings, reducing both travel time and expenses.

    Zoom is the standard videoconferencing application of UC Riverside. All enrolled students are equipped with standard tier zoom accounts.
