Teleconference Room, Computer Lab, and Intranet Infrastructures

As part of Invitation No. 7 of the “Information Society” Operational Programme, the Athens School of Fine Arts took the opportunity to upgrade and modernise its electronic equipment. A total of three projects, with an overall budget of 162,000€, were undertaken under the coordination of Associate Professor G. Charvalias.

Firstly, the “Intranet” Project optimised the school’s access network, securing advanced high-speed telecommunication services and high availability of the ASFA voice and data network, and creating the conditions for the development of a comprehensive telematic services and e-learning environment. In addition, the installation of a new ISDN Primary connection upgraded the School’s Dial Up service.

The “Computer Lab Equipment” Project was developed for the purpose of organising and fully equipping the Computer Lab, which consists of 20 workstations over 80 m2. The methodology employed for the creation of the Computer Lab included researching the specifications and technical characteristics of the equipment, designing and adapting the lab space, installing and extending the network, procuring and installing the equipment, and running the Computer Lab on a pilot basis.

Finally, the “Teleconference Room Equipment” Project designed and equipped the ASFA Teleconference Room, the purpose of which is to develop a distance learning course in the Visual Arts. Once the equipment was installed, the Project focused on designing a pilot e-learning programme, as well as developing multimedia applications for content development, and producing new multimedia educational software for the requirements of art education. The next stage was to create an organised, regular and continuous educational programme offering full courses in selected subject areas. At the same time, the School utilised its teleconferencing facilities to establish partnerships with various Departments and Schools, both in Greece and abroad, with which ASFA already collaborates on a number of initiatives, such as organising joint workshops and art/research projects.
