Global Learning Center

Posted on: February 23rd, 2016 by CES

This underutilized facility, one of ORU’s most valuable assets, will become a seamless hub to transmit innovation and mission through state-of-the-art technology. Classrooms will be equipped with touch technology, interactive SMART Boards, and other tools to give professors visually advanced options as they teach a wide variety of subjects.

Classes and programs will be recorded and stored on file servers to be retrieved by students on their personal mobile devices or computers and by ORU satellite campuses worldwide. The center’s open architecture can adapt to changes in technology and learning styles, and also provide a venue for donor events and conferences, Golden Eagle Broadcasting content creation, and more.

One of the most exciting features of the GLC will be the Virtual/Augmented Reality Classroom. Students will enjoy a multidimensional experience that gives them the sense of being fully immersed in the environment they are learning about…and they’ll have access to more than 7,000 learning modules, from partial to full simulations in every industry. To honor longtime ORU business professor Dr. George Gillen, we are raising $500,000 to name this room for him; this link will provide more details.
