This is the student view of the classroom if they were seated in the back, where the student is able to see the two whiteboards which also serve as projector screens, the professor and lectern. There is a third projector screen, pictured right.
This is the student view from a closer seat in the classroom. The third projector screen is omitted from this picture but is still on the right wall from the student’s perspective.
This is the professor’s view with the dual monitors. The one picture left is a smart monitor (touch screen and annotation) while the right one is regular.
This is the professor’s view of the classroom. Shown are the two TV screens called confidence monitors that will mirror what is screened from the projector, so the professor can view what the student is viewing.
Ensure that students do not sit in front of your confidence monitors so that your view of the screens is unimpeded.
There are three projector screens in classroom C. Note that the pictures below were taken when the classroom walls that separate classes C, D, and E were down, so the pictures have other classrooms in the background. Regardless, the projector set-up is the same.
There are two projectors behind the professor (picture left and middle), and one that is on the wall. These pictures show the student’s view of the classroom.
Phone and HDMI
This top-down view of the lectern shows the phone that can be used to call IS services, under the right monitor. In the middle is the pointer used to control the monitors, and to the left is the smart control panel.
Shown here are the HDMI and VGA cord inputs.
Smart Control Panel
For the smart control panel, tap on the screen to wake it up and then tap again. You will be directed to the source page where you may proceed to choose your source.
The center projector (directly behind the professor) is controlled by the left-hand control system, while the left and right projectors are controlled by the right-hand buttons. The Zoom PC setting will reflect the smart monitor (see “Professor’s View for monitor explanations), while the Zoom PC Ext. will reflect the extended desktop.
Visual Settings in Zoom
For visual in Zoom in classroom C, choose the AV Bridge Conference setting, shown below. The setting will show the classroom and professor. The Video Pro Capture setting does not work for classrooms.
There are two identical zoom screens that appear once you have signed into Zoom. To split the screens onto your two monitors, drag one of the screens over to the opposite monitor, as shown in the second picture below. Ensure that you are clicking on the top of the web page and then dragging over, so that the screen will move.
For the Blu-Ray player, only use the blu-ray function. Do not touch the other settings, as they have already been carefully calibrated. Call IS if you would like assistance.
Ceiling Mics and Speakers
The ceiling microphones are attached with a cord and hang, shown here. The speakers are round circles set into the ceiling.
The charging outlets for students are located on top of the desks. Students can access the outlets by pressing down on the square to pop open the console.
There are two microphone options in the room: lapel mic and handheld. The microphones can be found in the charging console next to the HDMI port. Always return the microphones to the charging port after class.
For the handheld mic, simply remove it from the charging port and power “on” by flipping the switch in the middle of the handle up. When you speak, speak clearly into the head of the mic (gray section) and not anywhere else on the body, or your sound will not be projected.
Some professors have found it helpful to use this mic to pass around the classroom, so that students may hear each other more clearly.
For the lapel mic, turn on by switching the “on” switch located at the top of the mic. Clip the mic that is on the end of the cord to your collar or jacket, where it will be close enough to your mouth that you can project your speech to the class.
IMPORTANT: When finished with the mics, return them as they were to the charging ports, so the next professor may use them.
