All LBJ School classrooms follow the standard Liberal Arts Information Technology Services classroom technology model. The computers in the rooms run both Mac OS 10.12.6 and Windows 10 Enterprise 64-bit and require a UT EID to log in. There is a HDMI connection with a ring of adapters, a VGA connection, and a 3.5mm audio jack for connecting laptops to the system. 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 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 include a HDMI connection with a ring of adapters as well as a VGA connection. The other tech lite classrooms only offer a VGA connection. Adapters can be checked out from SRH 3.274.
All of our classrooms have been upgraded to include a webcam mounted in the front and back of the room as well as microphones in the ceiling to easily facilitate web conferencing. The webcams can be turned on and their positioning can be controlled using the camera button on the tech console's touch panel. 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 a classroom or office.
Considerations for using Skype or other web conferencing software:
- You will need to use your own account, so make sure you know your login credentials.
- Please add the person you will be conferencing with to your contacts list ahead of time.
- Request that the guest use a wired connection, if possible, since wifi can introduce unexpected network hiccups.
