We hope that you had an enjoyable summer break and recognize that we are only a few short weeks away from the beginning of the semester. The IT Instructional Support team has been hard at work upgrading classrooms and we wanted to share a few things that will help you prepare for the first day of class.
Big Changes This Summer
- The Instructional Support team is in the middle of replacing 90+ projectors in classrooms across the campus with brighter more advanced models.
- The reshoring in Reed, Tucker, and Sid Richardson will bring about some amazing new changes to your classroom experience.
- A new network called eduroam is now available for your personally owned devices to connect to the network. Not only is the connection process very easy, it also gives you the ability to connect while visiting thousands of other campuses across the globe.
How do I get help in a classroom?
This semester you are going to see a huge difference in how we plan to help make your classroom experience a positive one. Our team is currently doing classroom checks to ensure that all technical issues have been resolved before you walk in the door on the first day of class.
You should also see new signage in each of the classrooms giving you a quick reminder on who to call when you run into trouble while in front of your students. We can generally have someone in your classroom within five to ten minutes of the report of a classroom emergency. Use the number below when you need technical assistance in a classroom.
Visit Your Classroom Before the First Day of Class After August 13th, most of the reshoring and projector replacement work in the classrooms will be complete. The best advice that we can give is to visit your classrooms before the first day of school. We are always willing to offer one-on-one or group orientation sessions if you would like to learn more about the equipment that you are using. Just give us a call or fill out a request on our website to get something scheduled.
