'These banks of high-definition monitors are designed to let students and researchers show images in a larger-than-life form to see details more clearly and collaborate better,' the Chronicle of Higher Education reports

'At the Johns Hopkins University, for instance, a 12-by-7-foot video display will soon greet visitors to the main library. It's a feature of a new "learning commons" wing, where the emphasis is not on books but on online materials and group-project work. The video wall, which will let students and professors share information from their smartphones or laptops, is designed to get people's heads out of their computers.'
