Instructor standing behind COVID-19 safety barrier

With the variety of teaching modes in use this fall, the Learning Spaces and Instructional Services teams share some helpful reminders about classroom spaces and instructional technology.  

  • Each University Classroom is equipped with a room camera for assisting in virtual instruction. In some instances, while using Zoom or Panopto, the document camera is incorrectly set as the default video source. Remember to select the room camera when starting a meeting or lecture. In many cases, the room camera is labeled Huddly Go. 
  • All University Classrooms have microphones installed for use in virtual instruction. Some classrooms have wired boundary microphones that sit atop the lectern, while others may be equipped with wireless handheld and lavalier microphones. Wireless microphones are commonly stored in the drawer below or beside the classroom computer. 
  • University Classroom microphone drawers were unlocked before the start of the semester. If your drawer has been inadvertently locked, please contact the ITS Help Desk. They will set up an appointment for you to meet with a member of OTLT. Please be kind to the colleague who follows you by leaving the drawer unlocked.  
  • Each semester presents the opportunity to use unique software. If you have software you want in your classroom but don’t find it installed, please complete our software request form. The process may take up to two weeks, so please let us know as soon as possible.
