Learning Spaces & Classroom Technology

Learning Space Support covers all Feinberg spaces used for teaching and learning, as well as most conference and meeting spaces. This includes all AV equipment, as well as specialized medical technologies such as Butterflies, OtoSim, HeartSounds and iPads.

Active Learning Spaces

Active Learning Classroom (ALC)

The active learning space for medical education in McGaw 1250 is a flexible and technology-rich environment. It features movable tables, digital displays, and video/audio conference capabilities to encourage collaboration and interactive learning. Explore additional features with the link below.

Anatomy Suite

In this space designed for autonomous learning, students can integrate their theoretical knowledge with hands-on practice, harnessing the power of innovative technologies. Initial pilot of the space begins mid-September with expanded access through the Fall.

Room Technologies


Feinberg has dedicated iPads in the ALC and the Anatomy Lab. Those groups of iPads stay in those spaces and are always available with the space. In addition, AWOME has another set of iPads that can be reserved and utilized in other learning spaces. It’s important to note that the flexible set of iPads tend to be older. They work and are fully functional, but they will be slower.


Butterflies are handheld ultrasound devices used in a variety of teaching and learning settings at Feinberg. Each device is paired with an iPad (and could also be paired with your iPhone). We also provide them with a portable stand for ease of use. You can use these in almost any room at the medical school. These devices are popular, so we strongly encourage you to reserve them early.


The OtoSim system is used to teach learners to give an ear exam. While you can use this technology in a variety of spaces, it works best in rooms such as 1-401 (McGaw). The OtoSim requires significant setup time and should be reserved at least one week in advance.


Heartsounds is an app of heart sounds to teach students about various heart defects. While the technology can be used in a variety of locations, it’s best to only use this in rooms with the best sound quality. We strongly recommend using this in the ALC. This app is unique in how it works, so please reach out to the Ed Tech team to get the most out of your experience.


We have a set of 12 Microsoft HoloLens. While these devices are primarily used for anatomy, we are happy to incorporate them into your curriculum in other ways. Ideal spaces include the ALC, 1-401 and the VR Lab (in Sim). Use of the HoloLens requires considerable planning, testing and support. Make sure you work out a plan with the Ed Tech team to make your experience impactful.
