Orientation

Not all Smart Classrooms have identical equipment. To ensure successful lectures and presentations using instructional technology, faculty are advised to review the instructions for the room's equipment and schedule an orientation session for each individual room they will be using. Refresher orientations are also recommended for those who have not used Smart Classrooms recently - these facilities are frequently upgraded to improve their effectiveness.

To schedule an orientation, call the Technology Equipment Checkout office at (707) 826-3166 or send an email request.
