Student View

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 other two projector screens are omitted from this picture, but are still on the right and left walls from the student’s perspective.

Professor View

This is the professor 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 that will mirror what is screened from the projector, so the professor can view what the student is viewing.

IS Helpline

This top-down view of the lectern shows the phone that can be used to call computer support, under the right monitor. In the middle is the pointer used to control the monitors, and to the left is the smart control panel.

Confidence Monitors

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 these monitors, as that will impede a view of the screens.

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

When in Zoom, 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.

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.

Power Outlets

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.
