All LBJ School classrooms follow the standard Liberal Arts Information Technology Services classroom technology model. The computers in the rooms run both Mac OS 10.11.6 and Windows 10 Enterprise 64-bit and require a UT EID to log in. There is a HDMI connection with a ring of adapters as well as a 3.5mm audio jack for connecting laptops. Each room is also equipped with a document camera for displaying physical content. These rooms have a touch panel that is used to operate all technology in the room.
Some of our classrooms are often times split in half using a partition depending on the number and size of classes each semester. The west side of these classes are consider "tech lite" and do not have a technology console or a computer. SRH 3.214 has been upgraded to an HDMI connection with a ring of adapters. The other tech lite classrooms only offer a VGA connection. Adapters can be checked out from SRH 3.274.
LBJ ITS also offers mobile computer carts for checkout which feature a TV, Apple Mac Mini, Logitech C930e webcam, Jabra SPEAK 510 speakerphone, and wireless keyboard and mouse. These can be used to bring guest lecturers or students in a remote location into class. Newly upgraded rooms include a webcam mounted in the front and back of the classrooms as well as microphones in the ceiling to avoid needing to use one of these carts. Currently, SRH 3.B7, 3.122, 3.124, 3.214/220, 3.312/360, 3.314/355, and 3.316/350 have been upgraded to include this new hardware.
Considerations for using Skype:
- You will need to use your own Skype account since there is not a departmental account for general usage.
- Please add the person you will be conferencing with to your Skype contacts list ahead of time.
- Request that the guest use a wired connection, if possible, since wifi can introduce unexpected network hiccups.
