The Centre consists of five sections: Centre Office, Computer Teaching Service, Multimedia Teaching Service, Network Information Section and Telephone and TV Service. Teaching facilities like computer rooms, multi-purpose classrooms and language labs facilitate the advancement of modern educational technology process. The top-quality satellite ground receiving system is accessible to all apartments for faculty and staff and every dormitory room for students via campus cable TV system. The high-speed campus-wide Ethernet connects teaching, research and administration, forming a digital campus and enabling teachers and students alike to have easy access to the Internet or Information Highway. Serveral thousand program-controlled switches make it possible to dial direct to any place of the country through a campus phone, thus bridging the gap of communication between the campus and the outside community.
With the application of modern educational technology as the core of its work, the Centre will continue to focus on its service to teaching and research, thus laying a solid foundation for the development of modern educational technology. It will also strive to broaden the overall function of education and build a good reputation and image in its service to teaching and the outside community.
