Classroom Equipment Tutorials and Instructions

Classroom Equipment Tutorials and Instructions 


CMET phone # if in doubt: 541-346-3091

We have 2 equipment systems on campus. Both the Crestron and Extron systems will include a computer/video projector, and appropriate VGA cables, DVD and/or VCR players and a sound system.
Most rooms have a document camera installed and some have blu-ray players. We are beginning to install HDMI capable projectors in most of our classrooms. Please check back for updates.

The two user friendly systems do require some amount of practice in their operation.
We suggest that you:

  • Review the  Classroom SpecificationsThis page lists all the general use classrooms and the equipment system type, seating styles, pictures of the classrooms, links for text instructions, room reservation request forms, and schedules of group equipment tutorials.
  • Determine your classroom type listed in the Specifications above.
  • Review our text directions for the classroom type in which you will be teaching.
  • Visit your classroom in advance of the term start to make sure you know how to operate the installed equipment.
  • Plan to attend an individual or group tutorial ( schedules listed below).
  • If you still need more practice, and one on one instruction, feel free to contact us at either 346-3091 or 346-0766 or mediasvc@uoregon.edu for an individual tutorial. 

 

Fall 2014 Classroom Equipment Tutorial Schedule


We are happy to schedule group or individual tutorials at any time of the year.
Alternately, you may attend one or more of those arranged by our office or we will work with your department to arrange one as well.
It's not always possible for us to provide tutorials during the first few days of any term, however, do call our office and speak with one of our staff members. We may be able to help you over the phone.

NEW FACULTY ORIENTATION Technology Fair
September 25 2:15pm - 4:15 pm
Location: Various rooms in Ford Alumni Center

Learn how to use the technology for your course whether it’s the equipment in the classroom or the course management system (Blackboard), blogs, and wikis you want to incorporate into your teaching. Whether you want to learn the Crestron control system for the instructor’s podium, plug in your laptop, test out the document camera, get a wireless microphone, stream your class live, set up your blog or Blackboard course, or connect via videoconference to any location across campus or the world, you’ll be glad you did this today instead of the first day of classes!

NOTE: We will not be able to schedule individual tutorials during the first week of any term. We can help over the phone and will come to your class to help get you started. However, please plan to visit your room before the term starts.
