Flexible Learning Spaces

UMass Dartmouth’s new flexible learning spaces, the Language Learning and Multimedia Center and the new Charlton College of Business Learning Pavilion offer multiple, flexible technology enhanced learning spaces designed to support flexible models of teaching and learning.


IDEAStudio is a collaborative venture between the College of Engineering and the College of Visual and Performing Arts, sponsored by Chip Hildreth (electrical engineering, ’85) and Susan Hall (art education, ’85).

The studio is a digital/multimedia space consisting of multiple computers with CAD programs, a 3D Scanner, a 3D printer, a laser engraver, and a full-length green screen wall for motion capture animation. Equipment is available to all UMASS Dartmouth faculty and students with current IDs.
