Overall System Status:
Dartmouth has a variety of facilities for courses and seminars. You can choose from projection-equipped SMART classrooms or instructional centers where each student station is equipped with a computer. Display equipment can also be scheduled in many non-equipped classrooms.
Classroom assignments for each term are coordinated by Department Chairs, Department Administrators, and the Arts and Sciences Registrar. Prior to the end of each term, the Registrar sends a mailing to departments for the upcoming term’s classroom assignments. Department staff coordinate faculty responses to this mailing. Faculty requirements for seating capacity, room layout, furnishings, AV equipment, campus location, and other elements are then matched to the inventory of suitable classrooms available at the given class hour.
Faculty can request additional evening, weekend, or term break room assignments by e-mailing email@example.com.
For students who want to work together as a group, group meeting rooms are available within Baker/Berry. To schedule a room, see http://www.dartmouth.edu/~library/home/services/study-spaces.html
Portable display equipment may be scheduled for use in non-equipped classrooms or to supplement the standard playback equipment in SMART classrooms. Call 646-2302 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for equipment, assistance, and training.
Please call 646-1155 to report any problems with the audiovisual equipment during your class. The next available technician will respond to your call. The number is posted in all equipped classrooms. The same phone number can be used to report non-critical failures of the audiovisual system or maintenance needs. Please do not call this number to schedule AV services for your class or event; we need to keep the phone line available for trouble reports.
While many trouble reports are resolved within the same day and ahead of the next class, some system failures may not be quickly repaired. We will notify scheduled users and leave information in the classroom in these instances. Having a back up plan (e.g.: using an x-period) can be helpful in these rare instances.
