Overall System Status:
SMART classrooms are designed for self-service use of computer, video, and document display. Faculty may also record their voice and the computer desktop in any SMART classroom using Camtasia Relay.
SMART classrooms are readied for each class day, and assistance is available 8 a.m. through 10 p.m. weekdays while the term is in session.
Access or assistance that may be needed during the reading period, exam period, or term break should be scheduled by sending e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
This is especially critical when exams fall on the weekend when staff are not ordinarily scheduled.
The AV systems are turned on and checked before the beginning of each class day. The AV systems are shut down and checked again at the end of the class day. The AV systems are also shutdown automatically every night at 11 p.m. to ensure that the equipment is not left on for extended periods between uses.
Faculty are strongly encouraged to schedule training on SMART classroom features and AV system operation. A code may be required to turn the AV system on if another user has shut it down. Troubleshooting assistance is available during class hours by calling 646-1155. An attendant may be able to resolve the problem over the phone, or a technician may be dispatched to the classroom. Support is not available over any weekend or on weeknights during term breaks unless stand by assistance is scheduled.
SMART classrooms are built to meet or exceed the following equipment standards. Classrooms that were renovated prior to the current standards may omit some features. See the SMART classroom list for exceptions.
