The beginning of the semester is here, and we wanted to take the opportunity to let you know about classroom updates that have taken place during the summer, based on the Classroom Refresh Project. Several of the older computers have been replaced, as well as older projectors. Document cameras were replaced with smaller versatile software-based cameras which have the same functionality of outdated equipment. These cameras provide additional capabilities and are very simple to operate. Older projectors have been replaced in many rooms. In Old Admin, the obsolete and unsupported control systems have been removed from classrooms, simplifying the classroom setup to a more standard model across campus. In many cases, older sound systems have been replaced with a simplified model.
We have developed a general classroom guide which will be distributed to all classrooms soon. We strongly encourage you to visit your classrooms before the semester begins to test the equipment and identify any issues or questions. In addition, if your classroom requires different audio/sound capabilities, please let Jereme know your requirements. If you would like a copy of this guide, please contact Jereme Patterson email@example.com or Mary Jo Carnot firstname.lastname@example.org
We will be offering open houses in each building during the week of August 11 which will include demonstrations of basic mediated classroom functions. These sessions will include ½ hour in a designated classroom demonstration, followed by ½ hour open time, during which faculty can request assistance in other classrooms in the specified building. If you need additional assistance before classes begin on August 18, you are encouraged to schedule an individual consultation about technology questions or needs specific to your classroom with Jereme.
New faculty will have the opportunity to visit their classrooms with Jereme as part of the new faculty orientation on August 14.
