Media Center Computers

 

Computer-based testing must depend on reliable high-speed equipment to meet the multimedia needs of today's online testing environments and the computer workstations selected for the Foreign Language Media Center provide both. Many Media Center computers are actually workstations designed for higher speeds and greater storage. Their Xeon CPUs, high speed DIMMs, discrete Nvidia graphics cards, and faster than usual front-side busses, ensure a smooth testing experience for our students unencumbered by the hesitations and delays typical of lesser equipment. Generally, our desktop systems are of three types: Dell Precision Workstations, Dell Optiplex 755s, and Dell Optiplex 960s providing more than enough power for Microsoft Office applications, Rosetta Stone and our Canvas-based online testing.
