Kanbar 101

Kanbar 101 is a classroom which provides professors the flexibility of instructing students in a classroom environment, while at the same time allowing them to bring technology use into their coursework. The classroom is designed to help professors and students give elaborate audio and video presentations.

The room can be reserved for classes by faculty and when the classroom is not in use it serves as an open lab.
