Microsoft “Digital Dorm Room”
Alfred State College recently hosted the Microsoft "digital dorm room" (DDR), a program designed to bring new technology and solutions directly to colleges and universities across the United States. The Digital Dorm Room is actually a model of a cool technology-enabled dorm room built into a truck. Live product demonstrations showcasing solutions from Microsoft and Hewlett Packard were offered aboard a 26-foot truck literally traveling across America. For college students, professors, and staff, DDR is where they can meet with experts and experience the latest technology in a hands-on, interactive environment, enabling more informed purchase decisions that will enhance their potential. A version of the Digital Dorm Room was parked on the campus recently where ASC students played video games and were treated to a variety of promotional items from Microsoft and Hewlett-Packard.
