Teaching Rooms

Support

ITS Client Support is responsible for the functioning and maintenance of the audio visual equipment in the timetabled teaching rooms and lecture theatres.

If you wish to provide feedback about the teaching rooms or need advice about the equipment, you should contact the ITS Service Desk on extension 4008, or email them at help@waikato.ac.nz.

It is very important that all University teaching staff visit their scheduled teaching rooms well before they are due to teach. The purpose of the visit is to make sure they are familiar with the AV equipment in that room, and that it meets their teaching needs. It is not always possible to provide support for teaching staff at the last minute, so please be prepared.

Client Support provides training for the AV equipment at scheduled times. Please contact the Service Desk for information.

To book a teaching room online please use the Timetable Room Bookings form. Please allow 48 hours for confirmation of your booking. All enquiries about booking teaching rooms need to be directed at the SASD Timetable Department at timetable@waikato.ac.nz

Hotline:

All major teaching rooms have a telephone in them that you can ring the “Hotline”. The hotline is in case teaching staff have problems with the technology during their classes. Please ring 6066 This is given immediate priority.

ITS.G.56 Teaching Room

The setup of this room suits small group discussion groups and has 25 stackable seats and 4 tables which are on castors to allow them to be repositioned as required with additional whiteboards fitted so each table / group can have their own to work on.

Applications:
Adobe Creative Cloud (premier, Photoshop, Dreamweaver etc) is installed so editing demonstrations or student post production editing can be done in the room.

Hardware:
The computer installed in the room is a high – spec PC identical to the edit suite or TV studio record machines
Dual monitors and one of those mirrors to the High – Definition Data projector. An amplifier and speaker system is installed in the room and the computer is equipped with a Blu-Ray player / burner.

The projector also has provision to connect a laptop (VGA only at this stage) and it has also been wired to allow the programme output from the TV studio to be displayed (including sound) which could be useful if the room is being used as a prep room for studio production.

Zoom:
The PC is set up for Zoom Video conferencing and there is a camera and echo cancelling microphone installed.

All the network ports in the room are live if other devices need to be connected – we will have network cables available at the service counter.

If you are using the room, please ensure it is kept tidy as a courtesy to other users. If you have any queries about the room, please feel free to ask.
