- 21 projectors
- 10 document cameras

Note: No short classes were offered during fall semester, due to changes in student and staff leadership of the student training program and new versions of Microsoft and Adobe software. Classes were revised, new classes were developed, and student trainers were trained during fall semester.
30 workshops were provided to support classroom technology projects, as requested by instructors; topics included working with audio and video, Photoshop, Dreamweaver, PowerPoint, Excel, and Publisher.
