We are pleased to announce that FXB G11 has opened for the spring and summer semesters as a computer laboratory with seating for 38 students. Each seat is equipped with a laptop, hardwired network connection, and the full suite of software available in any computer laboratory. A laser printer has been added to the room.
The room is available both as a computer classroom and for general student use between scheduled classes.
This room replaces Kresge 213 which has gone offline for renovations along with Kresge 201, 210, and 212. This is the first of a two phase complete renovation & redesign of all the second floor classroom space in Kresge building.
Erin Chadwick, an Emerson College senior, has joined the Media and Educational Technology Services (METS) team as a video production intern.

She works in our the central control room in the Kresge building using our new MediaSite course capture system and our remote cameras in Synder Auditorium (G1), Kresge G2, and Kresge G3.
Erin will be monitoring some of our classes and framing the lecturers. This work has made our course recording more watchable and improved the overall student experience.
Erin is a film production major, with a particular interest in experimental film.
Erin works Monday and Wednesday mornings.

Ian Tosh, HSPH’s new manager for Media and Educational Technology Services (METS), had an eventful Halloween. Ian’s year-and-a-half old son Nolan shares his father’s enthusiasm for audio-visual devices and loves to play with an old microphone around the house. An idea for a unique Halloween costume was hatched as his son also bears some resemblance to NPR’s OnPoint host Tom Ashbrook, a family favorite.
When the costume was a big hit in his neighborhood, Ian decided to send Tom a photo of the young broadcaster. This led to two NPR blog posts, hundreds of Facebook “likes,” and a gracious invitation to tour the NPR studio and meet Tom.
