Projection solutions are becoming a more integral part of teaching
Digital projectors enhance the learning process by providing instructors a means to illustrate and support their lessons visually, which might not be possible with other, more traditional presentation methods. This is one of the primary reasons why DAU is investing more of their media budget in projection systems for classrooms. The university and corporate training center is located on one of the most prestigious military installations in the United States.
