In November 2006, the editors of "Campus Technology" launched their first-ever High-Resolution Projection Study, to find out if the latest in projector technology could really make a significant difference in teaching, learning, and educational innovation on US campuses. The author and her colleagues asked campus educators, technologists, and administrators interested in participating in the study--and demonstrating a real need for improved projection technology in the classroom--to submit their best argument regarding why their institution should receive a cutting-edge projection device, free. For the purposes of the study, in January 2007 the authors and her colleagues shipped identical projector equipment--a Canon REALiS SX6 projector--free of charge to four different institutions: (1) Herkimer County Community College (NY); (2) Pomona College (CA); (3) The Ohio University College of Osteopathic Medicine; and (4) The University of New Orleans. Even in the early weeks and months of usage, the state-of-the-art projector recipients believe that this kind of intelligent classroom technology has a very positive impact on both teaching and learning. The only caveat they heard was from Joe Brennan at Pomona College, who is eagerly awaiting Canon's implementation of "sizable discounts to educational institutions" so that cutting-edge projection equipment such as the REALiS SX6 can find its way even more easily into the hands of enthusiastic educators.
