About

The Language Center maintains four computer classrooms. They can be reserved in advance for use with language classes or special presentations and workshops. All rooms have 24-30 student computers along with an instructor's computer.

A data projector in each room allows for projection from the LC computer, document camera, multi-zone DVD player or visitor's laptop. Other features include an electric projection screen along with wired and wireless internet access. Class sessions or special presentations can be video recorded in two classrooms. 

All four Mac classrooms feature Northwestern Digital Language Lab (DiLL) audio lab software. This software provides an intuitive interface for instructors to pair students, monitor their conversations and set up recordings. Student recordings are saved automatically and can be reviewed by instructors through the Mac DiLL website
