Classroom Technology


Detailed overview of each classroom can be found here. This document contains a detailed overview which includes pictures of each classroom, size of the room, and technology.


All classrooms are equipped with the following technology:


Classroom Projection System: This consists of a video projector, screen, and audio system for the purpose of displaying content on the screen using the desktop computer, blu-ray player, or apple tv in the room.


Laptop Connection (VGA, HDMI, USB for Video Conferencing): This allows you to connect your laptop to the projection system using the VGA or HDMI cable in the room. There is an apple adapter located in the room to connect your MacBook but this is for pre-Thunderbolt 3 models. An ethernet connection is also available to connect to the network but wireless access is available using your SCU login or by connecting to the guest network.


Apple TV: There is Apple TV found in each room which will allow you to connect your Apple Device to the screen in the room. Select Apple TV and search for the room name in your screen mirroring settings (if on iPad or iPhone) or your Airplay settings (if on a Apple Laptop). Enter the code displayed on the screen on your device to connect. Remember to disconnect from each using the same process when you are done. This does not work if you are connected to the SCU-Guest WiFi network.

Microphone (Podium and Wireless): If you are in need of a wireless microphone, one can be checked out at the Circulation Desk located in the Law Library on the second floor. We cannot check them out for you. There is a limit of one lapel and handheld microphone per classroom. 


Classroom Capture: Each classroom can be recorded and made available to students. This is scheduled through Law Technology and you will need to provide the name of the class, date, and start and stop time. If recording for an entire semester, we will need additional information from you such as the course name to link to your Camino course page. Please make your request at least 48 hours in advance. We will do our best to accommodate last minute requests but it is not guaranteed. 


Video Conferencing (using SCU support software Skype and Zoom): Each classroom has video conferencing capabilities using Skype or Zoom, which is pre-installed on our podium desktop PCs. You will need to provide your own login as we do not provide logins. For Skype, you will need to create a login at www.skype.com. For Zoom, your login is your SCU Login. Please note that if you are using Zoom, you will need to send a calendar invite ahead of time.
