Podiums in Classrooms

Certain classrooms are equipped with A/V equipment that allows you to share new media with your class. These podiums have inputs from computers, DVD players, and a cable to attach your VGA capable laptop.

To check if a podium is equipped with or for a certain technology please contact the Technology Help Desk with your inquiry. 


Recording classes

Please contact the Technology Help Desk to request that your class be recorded. This requires 2 weeks advance notice.


Podium to Mobile Technology Adaptors

If you wish to project media from your Mac laptop or iPad, you will need an adapter that goes to VGA. The most modern MacBooks use what is called a "Display Port" or "Thunderbolt" display connection. See the University Bookstore for assistance.
