The Hobbit House, Gwynedd-Mercy College’s pre-K program for three- and four-year olds, is also benefitting from the new Aruba WLAN. The College recently invested in 33 iPads and a special iPad cart for the pre-K program and installed interactive projectors on sliding rails. With the sliding rails, the young children can roll the projectors all the way down to floor level and interact with them while a faculty member controls what the students are seeing via the iPads.Looking ahead, the College is developing a new 50,000 square foot academic building that will be the most technology-enabled building on any of their four campuses. Expected to open in January, 2014, the new building will house the School of Business and the School of Education. The building’s classrooms, community spaces and auditorium will be outfitted with 30 Aruba AP-135 access points, which are designed to maximize mobile device performance in extremely high density Wi-Fi environments. “Aruba Networks’ industry-leading wireless LAN solutions are helping our faculty to leverage a wide range of innovative wireless educational tools to present information in new and exciting ways, and enabling our students to access and interact with classroom materials like never before,” said Karl Horvath, PhD, CIO for Gwynedd-Mercy College. ”Our Aruba WLAN allows us to deliver a richer, more interactive education experience to our students, better preparing them for success after graduation.” About Aruba Networks, Inc.
