REMAIN VIGILANT! Please Be Aware of an Increase in Cyberattacks at UC Riverside

UC Riverside is a prime target of attacks from cybercriminals, including but not limited to phishing, ransomware, and job offer scams. Some of these attacks have already claimed victims at UCR this year. The financial, mental, and emotional toll of cyber crime is immense, which is why ITS wants to remind the Highlander community to follow cybersmart practices and remain vigilant when using technology. Visit its.ucr.edu/iso-alerts for current security alerts. Visit its.ucr.edu/cybersmart for cybersmart tips and resources.

Multimedia & Classroom Technologies

Breadcrumb

ITS Multimedia and Classroom Technologies (MCT) 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.

MCT 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.
