Please note the following important information concerning podium / teaching PCs
All users must have a university login. Local accounts are not available (in line with university information security policies)
All podium PCs are configured with high spec processors, memory and disk drives meaning a PC can be rebooted in under a minute.
The Microsoft Outlook shortcut launches the web based Outlook interface. This will stop the local Outlook client from attempting to download all your email to the computer, slowing it down in the process.
Wireless/roaming/handheld microphones (those stored in the microphone safes or changing docks on teaching podiums and those usually available from the IT Service Desk on request) are still removed from use, to minimise infection transfer. Academics need to stand within 2-3m of the fixed microphones on teaching podiums for their voice to be captured in general teaching rooms. Hyflex-enabled rooms allow free movement because they have special wide area pickup ceiling microphones.
Please be security conscious and remember to always log out of the computer when you have finished teaching.
Please contact the IT Service Desk for more information if you require it.
