        Active Learning: William Jewell College chooses Crestron AirMedia™ for its new Pryor Learning Commons

        Liberty, Missouri

        William Jewell College, a top-ranked liberal arts college in Missouri sought to define collaborative learning while creating practical, reliable, extremely flexible technology to support it. The school created collaborative workstations based on wireless Crestron AirMedia technology to use in classrooms, study rooms, and common areas in the new Pryor Learning Commons. The classrooms and a building-wide CATV system are united by a Crestron DigitalMedia™ network with two DM-MD32X32 matrix switchers enabling users to switch any source device to any combination of displays.

        According to school faculty and staff members, the results have been well worthwhile. "The day we opened this new building our students filled it — and it's been in constant use ever since. They're excited about it and they're embracing it...I think we got it right."
