In the past four years, Oakland University has purchased and installed almost 100 Hitachi StarBoard units. This year's chosen presentation tool is a pen-driven 17-inch LCD panel with SXGA resolution. Allowing a presenter or teacher to directly face the classroom while having the screen's contents projected onto any size screen, the Hitachi T-17SXL features eight customizable function buttons, RGB output, and a pen with full mouse function capabilities.

Hitachi T-17SXL software allows the capture of written notes on top of presentations in any format including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and more. The software also allows conferencing of up to 50 StarBoard systems, providing distance-learning capabilities.

"More and more, like all universities and colleges, we're finding the benefits of distance learning and web-based instruction," commented George Preisinger, classroom support and instructional technical services department at Oakland University. "It is a great benefit for our students to have the teacher's handwritten notes on top of the original documentation."
