Processes and Procedures

Once OIIT has completed the installations, there will be opportunities to practice in the classroom.  We also will have a practice room in DeSantis available.

No. There are variations of the equipment in different rooms.  There is a basic setup that will be in most of the rooms. OIIT will give more specific details at a later date.

OIIT will provide information on how this will be handled.  As another solution, the LEC will be collaborating with the College of Undergraduate Studies in training undergraduate students called Room Sharks to assist in the different buildings.

Faculty may not bring their own mics.  Some colleges are looking into purchasing microphone heads for each faculty member that gets attached to the base and can be wiped down.

The attendance piece will be up to the college. Faculty will need to discuss this with their chairs/colleges.
