Classroom Technology

Introduction

For the purposes of this guide, classrooms on all campuses are divided into four main types based on what sort of technology setup they have. Each type of room is briefly described below, followed by a list of all the rooms in that category on each campus. (The following pages will have more detailed descriptions on the use of the technology in each room type).

Lecture Halls

This includes many of the bigger auditorium-style halls on all three campuses that are intended for large classes. These all have either large projection screens or monitors for in-class presentations, sound systems for amplifying the lecturer's voice to in-person students, and microphones and overhead cameras for either broadcasting the lecture to online students or recording it for later reference.

Traditional Classrooms

These classrooms have not been upgraded with new AV equipment, but will still have projection systems and/or monitors for in-class presentations. Most are now equipped with USB webcams that make it possible to share lectures with an online audience.

Distance Education Classrooms

These classrooms have video conferencing technology that allows them to connect to other classrooms of the same type without going through web conferencing software. They work best for classes with in-person students on more than one campus. The camera and microphone setups in these rooms can be used with Zoom (but not Collaborate), but faculty need to communicate with the Help Desk ahead of time for assistance setting up the connection. Many of these rooms have had USB webcams added to them, so that faculty can bypass the DE system and connect to Zoom and Collaborate without outside help.
