Use of Classroom Equipment
Our goal is to provide all classroom users with state of the art instructional equipment in good working order at the moment it is needed.
|All classrooms are equipped with:||Additional classroom equipment ("smart" rooms) may include:|
|VCR, including TV or VPU
Overhead transparency Projector
Most classrooms contain one or more Ethernet ports. Active ports are labeled "live."
If your assigned classroom does not meet your instructional needs:
Immediately call facilities management (extension 2089) for assistance with overhead projectors or screens. Someone is on the other end of the line 24/7, so if, for example, an overhead doesn't work, call and a working unit will be brought to class. Please don't go get an overhead from next door--this only means that the next class is without a working overhead projector. The same approach holds true for any emergency (e.g., lights out, heating/air conditioning not working, etc.).
Immediately call IT services Helpdesk (extension 3410) for assistance with all other classroom equipment.
If, prior to the start date of your class, you suspect your assigned room will not meet your instructional needs, contact Bryan Taylor in the Registrar's Office (extension 2213) to determine which equipment is in which room or to request a room change.
If you are planning to use one of the "smart" rooms (AIMS, Steinert, etc.):
Contact Josh Groft (extension 5592) in the Multi-Media Arts Center to schedule a 15-minute inservice/training on how to use the resources available and to obtain a universal key to access all AV equipment cabinets. Campus security staff will not be able to assist you after hours with equipment in the AV cabinets, however facilities management staff are on call at all times to replace bulbs, check electrical connections, etc. Written instructions regarding AV equipment is available below, and a copy is stored inside each cabinet for your reference:

If you need help while using overhead projectors or screens, contact facilities management (extension 2089) for immediate assistance. If you need help while using any other classroom equipment, contact IT services Helpdesk (extension 3410).
