Boola Katitjin has the first Tech-Enabled (TEL) desks in the country, allowing our students to connect with any device, collaborate with their group, and present and share with the class their work from anywhere in the world. Not only are they the first in Australia, but part of only a handful around the world.   

Also unique to Boola Katitjin is a MazeMap function which uses heatmapping to allow students to find their own quiet spot in the building. An amazing 'wall of screens' within classrooms, provides a level of immersion by bringing together physical and virtual spaces, so students can work collaboratively, whether they are studying on campus or at home.

Digital wayfinding screens

Three digital touchscreens for wayfinding are located at:

  • The Southern Lawn, off Discovery Way between Boola Katitjin and IIID
  • Arrival Hall on Level 1 – Discovery Way
  • Student Centre on Level 3 – Boardwalk.

Room booking displays

Outside of learning spaces, meeting rooms and projects rooms, you will see a room booking display. Cleverly integrated with timetable and meeting systems, these displays will inform you of current and future bookings for the space. You can book a room directly from these displays ad-hoc or make a future booking.
