Classroom Technology

In order to best support the college, 68 classrooms and lecture halls have permanently installed multi-media equipment racks, lecterns,Smart Boards, or stationed mobile projection carts. All our media console, mobile cart, and Smart Board systems are equipped with a dual-boot Mac Mini (i.e. Mac OS10.7 and MS Win7); a DVD/VHS combo player, a sound system and connections for user's laptop to the display. All of our installations utilize wireless RF Keyboards.

Some classrooms have Wacom Tablets, Document Cameras, Video conferencing and Lecture capturing capabilities installed. For classrooms or spaces without fixed equipment we can provide mobile carts equipped with an LCD projector, a PC, and 30w Sound System. All classrooms also have a standard overhead transparency projector and screen (tripod or wall). To find specific information about a room's equipment please check Classroom A-V inventory.

The Quick Start Guides for the 4 basic types of classroom configurations are available here in PDF form. If you have not used a particular type of classroom setup before, please call Media Services at x3822 or email or use the Media Manager Request Form so we can orient you in advance of your class.
