Do-it-yourself Reservations!

Equipment spotlight

VIDEO - We now have 2 portable document cameras that can be used either in our mediated classrooms or with one of our portable LCD projectors. We would love to show you how to set one up in your classroom.

AUDIO - Bringing music to class on a portable music device (mp3 player)? You can connect to the audio system in mediated classrooms using the provided mini stereo cable, or check out a portable speaker from the AV Pool.

What we’re working on

Movies are great for language classes, so we want to provide the best possible solution for in-class video. Our mediated classrooms have multi-region DVD players. Come to the AV Pool to check out a DVD remote and you’re ready to go!

At the moment, our laptops are only able to play region 1 (US) DVDs. To watch a DVD from another region in a room that is not equipped with a DVD player, you can check out a TV cart from the AV Pool. Remember to specify that you need a multi-region player, so we reserve you the correct equipment!

We rely on your feedback! Let us know how we can serve you better!

Contact the AV Pool by phone at 262-1678 or in person in 275 Van Hise.
