Colleges Struggle to Keep 'Smart' Classrooms Up to Date

Many institutions, especially public ones, lack the money to refresh computers and other equipment Colleges have been building so-called smart classrooms for years, equipping them with computerized projectors, digital whiteboards, and other tools. Now some of those once-high-tech rooms are starting to show their age at many colleges.

At a facility used by three colleges in Denver, for instance, a group of high-school students competing in a History Day event recently exposed problems at smart classrooms there when DVD players failed to play the students' final projects. Event coordinators scrambled to find personal computers capable of playing the discs, which were created using a format that the center's old DVD players couldn't read.
