Equipment Tutorials

University classrooms are designed with standard feature sets that support many laptop, tablet and display devices.  Academic Technologies offers Equipment Tutorials as a means to familiarize classroom users with their assigned room and to help test devices for compatibility with installed classroom technology. The tutorial lasts up to thirty minutes and involves meeting with one of our technicians who will answer questions and provide guidance.

Do I need an Equipment Tutorial?

Operation of installed classroom technology is intended to be highly intuitive and instructions are posted in every classroom. We encourage classroom users to visit their assigned room in advance, or view our Classroom Features page, to determine whether or not a tutorial is necessary.
