ITS Smart Eco Campus has a goal to create sustainable development in the campus environment by utilizing technology and science. Thus, the Smart Classroom and Smart Laboratory are built with an integrated electric system that contributes to reducing electricity use on campus.
This innovation also answers the urgency of achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). ITS continues to play an active role in developing various concepts and methodologies that are implemented so that SDGs in Indonesia can quickly be realized. Especially in the current pandemic era, education is one of the areas with the greatest impact. Educational institutions are pushed to continue ensuring inclusive and equal education for all, in accordance with the fourth goal of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), Quality Education. Hence, the Smart Classrooms and Smart Laboratories were initiated to encourage the quality of education at Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember (ITS), both online and offline.
The utilization of the Smart Classroom and Smart Laboratory is a manifestation of the full support of Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember (ITS) for the “Merdeka Pelajar” program by the Ministry of Education and Culture (Kemendikbud). The concept of “Merdeka Pelajar” emphasizes the independence needed by students in the current era, where instead of being pushed to strictly follow the existing curriculum, they can choose the most suitable and comfortable learning method. Aligned with this, Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember (ITS) built the Smart Classroom with flexible tables and chairs so that it can be adjusted to fit the students’ needs and comfort, while the Smart Laboratory provides flexible access for students to be able to conduct experiments at any time with approval.
