Instructional Computer Labs
The instructional computer labs are available to all faculty and staff wishing to teach courses or to hold seminars in computer-equipped facilities.
The instructional computer labs are fitted with a variety of media and instructional technologies. The videos below serve as quick guides to get started with the pieces of equipment found in the teaching podium of each one of these rooms.
A short walk-through on how to use the Crestron touch panels in our classrooms presented by John. These touch panels allow you to choose which AV sources (e.g. podium computer, laptop, document camera, air media, etc.) are displayed by the projector(s) in the room.
The cable cubby consists of three components HDMI, USB-C, and Mini Display cables. The HDMI cable supplies a connection between a laptop (or other video device) and the projector/display. The USB-C cable is utilized on devices that do not necessarily have ports. The Mini-Display or Thunderbolt cable is mostly found in Mac products and establishes a video connection to the projector/display. In this video, Laurie demonstrates the different cables of the cubby and explains their functions.
The Smart Podium allows instructors to use the attached smart pen to make notes on the computer screen, on a PowerPoint presentation, Word Document, NotePad, or any other comment on the screen. To use the smart pen software, just use the smart pen to write on the screen, erase, or simply to click. You can choose from the menu options depending on your desired action as shown in the video. John will give a demonstration in this short video.
