Technology-enhanced classrooms are designed to facilitate multimedia presentations using SmartPanels, also known as docking stations. SmartPanels in the Registrar's classrooms typically appear as a compact black rectangular wall panel next to the front blackboard. They have jacks which are compatible with Macintosh and PC computers, VCRs, laser disc players, audiocassette decks, microphones, Ethernet connectivity, and campus TV, all of which are controlled by illuminated buttons.
Some of these classrooms contain highly specialized equipment. Demand for these classrooms is high, and their use is reserved for those who need the specialized equipment. Other rooms have scheduling constraints depending on the time of day, where it falls within the quarterly cycle, and whether the request is for academic or non-academic purposes. Contact the Scheduling Office if you have questions about room scheduling policies and procedures.
