We would love to add information about our spaces to the new FLEXspace system. I have seen it and I like it much more than the old one. Thanks!

The CSU has an initiative for Makerspaces and it would be great to have a collection of makerspaces in FLEXspace so we can showcase the CSU’s makerspaces, including getting them catalogued.

We’re using FLEXspace to catalog several of our spaces

We’re interested in using FLEXspace to explore how peer institutions are transforming their learning spaces to best support 21st century learning and teaching. The FLEXspace portal allows us to discover and share new ideas that will aid in planning for future renovations. We also plan to showcase some of our recent learning space projects to share our efforts with other institutions.

The new website looks really nice, and FLEXspace is a great resource. I’m eager for the new tool to be up and running. I want to include a room which I designed here at UW-Madison in the gallery, and update my FLEXspace profile. Nice work!

I have admired FLEXspace from afar and wanted to create something for K-12, so not having to recreate the wheel is fantastic.

On our campus, I am an advocate of FLEXspace. In an instant, I can increase my expertise and provide an estimate of what it takes to redo a classroom.

I was so impressed with FLEXspace at SCUP in Vancouver – My new learning spaces subcommittee is anxious to host you to describe the benefits of both FLEXspace, LSRS and emerging research!
