Changes and notes for learning environment facilities, winter 2016

Friday, December 18, 2015

Read below to see how learning environment changes may affect you.

E-classroom podium fobs and keys

  • Request your fob or key before the busy start of term. 
  • Fob and key permit pick up (location, location!): Media Resources (Cheryl Petrie) moved to MC 1050 in September, around the corner from the previous entrance (see posted signs). Call ext. 84070, or request your fob online.

E-classrooms with technology upgrades over the past year

Reminder of plan for retiring older equipment

  • Overhead projectors[1]: As noted last term, these will no longer be standard in e-classrooms and will be removed over this term. A limited number will be available for term booking. To request a booking, contact: rt-ist-itms-LoansEvents@rt.uwaterloo.ca
  • DVD/VHS players: Will remain installed until they break, but will not be installed in new and renovated Registrar e-classrooms. If your course uses one consistently during a term, one will be installed! For occasional use, portable players are available from Equipment Stores. View a list of rooms with DVD/VCRs.

Waterloo LEARN

  • In April 2015, LEARN moved to D2L’s monthly update cycle. We post significant changes in “What’s New” on the LEARN support site.
     

Please feel free to contact me, Andrea Chappell (Director, ITMS in IST), by email (andrea.chappell@uwaterloo.ca) or phone (ext. 43779). Thank you, and we wish you a wonderful Christmas break, however and wherever you spend it!

 

[1] Overhead projectors can generally be replaced by use of document cameras that are being installed in most rooms. Both are different from data projectors. Confused? See Overhead projectors.
