The new touchscreen monitor in HSB1345, just swipe your finger across and advance your PowerPoint slides. You can annotate with either the pen (which I only know where it is hidden) or your finger. HSB classrooms are due for refreshing and 1345 is a preview.
You also can use the new feature AirMedia which allows you to have your student(s) login and then you can project their screen onto the “big” screen. The refreshed rooms will also have a “bridge” which will enable use of the in room cameras for Skyping or WebConferencing.

A recent email from ECU Tech Digest linked to a most interesting article about social engineering attacks. Bottom line they state “If an email, message on Facebook or phone call seems suspicious or sounds too good to be true, it is most likely an attack.” Click here to review this informative article.
Yes I am speaking French as I am leaving for a trip to Southern France tomorrow! My student worker Kayla Boyer, email@example.com will be covering my phone and office while I am gone. I will be back in the office on Monday, October 14. Mediasite recordings will be monitored by her and the ITCS techs. Any requests she can’t handle please feel free to contact these folks for assistance.

I know I sound like a broken record about lecture capture but did you know that through “My Mediasite” software you can track who is watching, how long they are watching without contacting this office. To get access to this great resource contact OET for instructions!
Then check out the training available for the latest version of Turning Point (clickers)
You can watch from your office or wherever you might be!
As fall semester gets into full swing please remember some simple tips when using our classrooms -
- Log off the room computer at the end of your class
- Shut down the system at the end of your class to turn off the projector
- Return the mouse to its cradle
- Return the wireless keyboard to its stand
- Turn off your mic if you are recording your class
- Those who are recording please note that when you mute the screen from the face to face students it is still getting recorded for the distance students, press pause to stop any desktop recording
- Streaming video while recording? Click the Mediasite button and then image, click back to video when you are finished watching the video!
- Lock doors
- Contact OET for assistance, training or information on our systems!
I probably sound like a broken record but most of our classrooms here at Allied Health have the capability to record video and content. Many students like to record classes and with the many mobile devices available it is quite easy to do. But think about this once they have a recording where do they keep it? Where might they post it? Where is it?
Capturing your classroom lecture with our equipment keeps recordings locked down so that only students enrolled in the class can view the recordings and once the class is over they no longer have access (unless you want them to).
