  • FH25
  • FH111
  • FH206
  • FH232
  • HGH204
  • HGH225

Note also that Classroom Technology Services is the new umbrella name for the Interdisciplinary Labs, Smart Classrooms, and Media Services. 

Before Your First Class

If you’re scheduled to use the Interdisciplinary Computer Labs and/or Smart Classrooms for instruction this semester, please plan in some time BEFORE your first class to (re)familiarize yourself with the software and equipment. Contact Classroom Technology Services at x3166 as soon as possible to schedule your Technology Training Update session and ensure that your first class runs smoothly. Bring samples of your instructional materials when you come to training, too, so we can make sure we’re covering all the bases.

If you need to check out a particular piece of equipment from Classroom Technology Services, you should reserve it as soon as possible to ensure it will be available when you need it. If it’s something you’re not too familiar with using, schedule an orientation session as well when you make the reservation.
