      XBMC Classroom Multimedia System
       

      Beginning with the 2014/2015 school year, all district classrooms feature a recycled laptop as a XBMC tuner. The tuners can play DVDs, but not VHS, and can also access a SCASD video library.


      WHY?

      • Cable is gone, plan is to not replace any dvd/vcrs

      • Comcast has changed to digital cable and we are not renewing/upgrading (cost prohibitive).

       
      What are the advantages?
      • Access to on-demand library that we have chosen to upload

      • Live broadcast channels by request

      • Kahn academy, Youtube and other resources

      • Weather


      What are the disadvantages?

      • Copyright--not all VHS tapes can be copied

      • Cable management

      • Can’t upload personally purchased video
