ATS now offers classroom tech support

T he College has announced a new addition to Academic Technology Services. Effective July 19, ATS began providing classroom technology support to those classes identified by a CRN number on the River Campus, as well as other curricular activities. The goal is to provide a one-stop shop for faculty seeking technology support in their courses and for academic activities.

The Classroom Technology Services division of ATS will support traditional classroom audiovisual equipment needs such as slide and overhead projection, audio CD and cassette playback, and film and video screening. In addition, it will provide support for the ever-increasing demands for in-class computer/multimedia projection. This service will complement the electronic classrooms in Taylor Hall rooms 41 and 31, Harkness Hall room 114, and the CLARC Mac and PC classrooms already supported by ATS.

Audiovisual support for noncourse-related functions will be provided by the Event Support Services department located in Wilson Commons, formerly Academic Media and Event Support. The two organizations will work closely together to ensure delivery of high-quality service to all events and classes, and will share information as the transition is implemented.

Faculty wishing to request support from Classroom Technology Services should call x5-4014. Questions regarding the new service should be directed to Mat Felthousen, coordinator of Classroom Technology Services, x5-9015, or e-mail classtech@ats.rochester.edu.

As before, faculty seeking to learn about classroom technologies--or any information technology that might be used to enhance instruction--are invited to the Educational Technology Center. (This summer, the center moved from Taylor Hall to Rush Rhees Library so that the program could be close to the Multimedia Center.)
