IT and Library Supported Classrooms: Home

A guide to the technology and facilities available to you in IT and Library supported rooms. The IT and AV equipment in our teaching spaces is important to lecturers and students alike, whether it's a 300 seat lecture theatre or a small seminar room.

Extended Support for our Teaching Spaces

The IT Service Desk is extending its opening hours to 8:30am – 5:15pm during teaching weeks, so issues in teaching and learning spaces can be responded to before teaching starts at 9:00am.

Room Types

The following are the types of room available across the university.  Each room is defined as a single type, but most rooms can be used in a multitude of ways. 

  • Lecture Theatre
  • Classroom
  • Study group
  • Meeting room
  • IT Lab
  • Open space

Information for staff

Microphones

We are re-introducing lapel microphones in our teaching spaces with the approval of our Health & Safety Unit. Please ensure that you have washed/disinfected your hands before each use. Please do not use any anti-bacterial gel/sanitiser on the microphones as this will damage them.

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.
