Duke University Zoom Carts Allow Quarantining Students To Attend Class

The Trinity College of Arts and Sciences at Duke University has purchased 20 more “Zoom carts,” the mobile computing systems with 65-inch flat screen monitors that allow students to attend class virtually if they’re quarantining because of a positive COVID-19 test.

The new carts will buttress the 45 carts already available to Trinity faculty. In fall 2021, these carts were key cogs in the patchwork quilt of imperfect solutions that allowed the university to teach in person all semester. There are another 15 or more carts in use in other professional schools across campus.
