Classroom Technology PDF Guides
Over 180 classrooms are being outfitted with upgraded technology and systems that enable the Hybrid NUflex learning model. All registrar-managed classrooms will be configured in one of four types as described below. Some department-managed classrooms will also be upgraded for fall 2020 during this initiative.

NUflex Auto classrooms have full NUflex capabilities as described above, including professional quality cameras and mics that can automatically detect and focus on the class participants who are actively speaking. Over 150 classrooms at the Boston location fall into this type.
NUflex Manual classrooms have the same capabilities as NUflex Auto classrooms, with the exception of the auto-detecting cameras and mics, which can be manual switched if the instructor would like to do so. At least 30 classrooms across Northeastern’s global network will be NUflex Manual for the fall.
Standard classrooms will be unchanged from what faculty and students have seen in the past. Leveraging conferencing tools such as Zoom or Microsoft Teams, and using existing cameras, instructors’ mics, and a handheld mic for students, instructors can still teach a Hybrid NUflex class in these rooms.
Technology will be installed on over 60 carts that will be strategically placed in or around classroom locations to provide Hybrid NUflex capabilities. NUflex Mobile carts feature a single 65″ display, while NUflex Studio carts will have two 65″ displays to enable separate views for content and for video meetings.
