Surface Tables


Exploration Lab 2 is home to University of Exeter’s unique Surface Tables - 10 multi-touch collaborative devices. 

The Surface Tables are colour coded and have a corresponding colour coded wall monitor, which allows extended group working and presenting from the tables.

The Surface Tables have windows 8 installed which is specifically designed for touch devices such as these.  The start screen and touch interactivity have been tailored to the Surface Tables to enhance the user experience over previous operating systems.

To login, simply use your university username and password. This will give you access to your network drive and all the software you would expect to find on any University of Exeter open access PC.

The Surface Tables are free to use for all students and staff, the room is open access from 8amuntil 8pm.
