Classroom Technologies

Illinois Tech provides six types of classroom technology levels across the university. Five of the classroom types are designed to allow students to participate synchronously on-line, asynchronously on-line, or both.

The Office of Technology Services supports the presentation technology in over 100 classrooms on IIT’s Mies and Rice Campuses as well as the non-Kent classrooms at the Conviser Law Center and provides design and programming for the Chicago-Kent classrooms.  A set of university standards determines the equipment installed in each classroom.  Those standards may be found here.  Detailed presentation system instructions are provided on the desk/podium.  Copies are also available below.

Contact the OTS Support Desk for assistance with any classroom technology.

Instructions

OTS has produced several videos to assist you with utilizing these rooms. We encourage you to review these videos in advance of your class.

PRINTED INSTRUCTIONS

The preferred method for connecting an instructor provided device in all classrooms is via wireless connectivity provided by Crestron AirMedia.  The AirMedia Windows app is available here.   The AirMedia Mac OSX app is available here.  Alternatively, there is a male HDMI cable and a male VGA cable available.  Adapters for other types of connections are the responsibility of the instructor.  View available presentation technology by individual classroom, here.
