    Professor OLMH 1208 Anonymous Great job on improvements in last several years. Finally we have wonderful modern equipment in the smart classrooms! They get better every year.
    Professor HMNSS 1503 Dale Kent Individual technicians have always been very helpful, though there is sometimes a problem with continuity as different people arrive in successive sessions to treat the same problems. General organizational directives - like leaving the remote in the bio box - have responded very effectively to practical problems.

    Marguerite Waller I would just reiterate that the sound in LFSC 1500 makes the sound on DVDs and videos extremely muddy, almost impossible to understand. And the image projection in Sproul 1340 has really terrible resolution. Also the DVD player, which is really a laser disc player, does not respond to the control panel.

    Dana Simmons Thank you very much for your assistance in setting up my first classrooms. I benefitted enormously from Media services, and I think that my students did too.
    Professor LFSC 1500 Glenn Stanley For me, it would be very useful if the Analyzer software allowed the capacity to selective drop clicker quizzes for individual students (ie, drop each student's lowest two scores)
    Professor UNLH 1000 Roger Ransom My only complaint was that there were some annoying failures of the sound system in the middle of the quarter.
    Professor HMNSS Lane R. Hirabayashi Again, I did attend a lecture this past fall quarter where a professor from Psychology talked about how to design lectures for the PowerPoint technology. I've never, however, seen a basic seminar offered on the hardware/software needed to run PowerPoint, the audience response clickers, etc. I'd definitely be open to learining more about all this, and I would like to give theses things a try -- especially if it might help me improve my ability to get my lecture points across.

    ENGR2 143 does not have an instruction sheet, and the number for Media Resources is not there, so when the Help button was broken, there was no way to call for help.

    Overall, the technology is great, though, and the staff are very responsive. It was very nice to have the computers, so all I needed to do was take my flash drive instead of my computer.

    David Eastmond The USB ports on the side of the monitor in WAT 1117 didn't work. I still frequently use overhead projections so they need to be in the classrooms.
    Professor BRNHL B118 John Gerdes A service that would be useful is a centralized scantron service that would scan in and record in some electronic format the answers to all questions. Currently the local system we use at AGSM is very buggy and prone to errors.
    Professor OLMH 1126 Walter Farmer

    The presence of a computer with internet access was a significant boost to my class. I and my students used them on a regular basis for our presentations. However, I missed any notice that went out annoucing the addition of the computers to the classrooms. I have since learned that other faculty using the smart classrooms were unaware they no longer need to carry computers to class. In my case, one of the students in the class introduced me to the newly present technology. It is difficult to get faculty to reall all the announcements that come out on a regular basis. Eventually most of us get up to speed.

    The responses to the help button were much appreciated.

    Professor OLMH 1208 Bradley Mullens The room is well appointed, but I did have some trouble getting the equipment to work. Early in the qrt a connection was loose and took a few lectures to troubleshoot. Later, I was unable a couple of times to project my powerpoint through the projector. Turning things on and off usually worked, but once nothing would help. Once a lecture is in progress, I won't yell for help - I usually will just resort to the blackboard, which I use quite a bit anyway. However, the continuous use of all rooms makes smooth operation of the equipment critical - there is basically no time to mess around, as one class of 110 students leaves and another comes in, students need to talk, etc. It's a zoo.
    Professor SPR 2340 Anonymous For the entire quarter, nothing failed, everything worked great. Keep up the good work.
    Professor BRNHL B118 Michael Retting

    About the microphone in B118. There is a non intuitive glitch in the on/off light on the control box on top of the desk (sometimes "on" really means off). Also, the microphone themselves have inadequate clips (they fall off) and there is sometimes inexplicable timing out of the microphone (does not work for a few to quite a few seconds). The batteries can be annoying too. I would like to buy my own microphone.

    Please tell me what to buy that is compatible with the systems in all of the large classrooms. About the camera: the document camera does not work well with the classroom demos that I do. The overhead camera that used to be there worked very well when it was fully operational.

    Maybe there is a compromise now, something like a small videocam that could be taken out of the drawer and plugged into an appropriate port, with its own toggle on the desktop control box. Something like an iSight but not requiring computer control. Manual focus, etc. would be fine, but a versatile stalk-line stand would be needed. Something like an iSight on a Stalk, with output format like a videocam would be about right.

    Professor UNLH 1000
    LFSC 1500
    Richard Cardullo UNLH is still a difficult room to work in. LFSC 1500 is O.K. but being able to use the screen on the side instead of the center screen would be better for optimal use of the board.

    Thank you so much for your assistance last quarter. I really aprpreciated all the help with the microphone. There really is a problem with the sound system and use of the microphone in BRNHL B118. About every other session, I had to push the help problem because either it was not working or there was so much feedback that it was not usuable. I think there needs to be multiple microphones available in that room and perhaps someone to frequently check it out.

    Grad Student WAT 1111 Anonymous Thank you for all of your assistance. I really enjoy using the technology in the classroom. Last quarter (F '05), I began using the in-classroom computer to project class notes instead of using the chalkboard. My students seemed very excited by this. I found it easier to use Word to make notes than to write them on the board. They could see it better and I could manipulate text much more easily. I could also save them to blackboard if they wanted the notes for future reference.
    Assoc. Professor SPTH 2200 Randy Head

    The biggest plus, as always, was the GREAT responsiveness of your department, both for short term and long term issues.

    One problem spot: having to use the lecture hall in ENGR2 a few times for public lectures this term: THAT system is a mess. How to turn on and off regulate screens, etc., was a complete mystery. The podium itself was better, but only moderately user-friendly, either (and equipment there, e.g. the podium mic, was there once, not the next time.)

    Assoc. Professor STAT B650 Daniel Jeske The room was not always as clean as I would like. For a week or two there was gum stuck to the projection cabinet, and one day it got on my textbook. We need someone with a big hammer to get the University to recognize the vaule of having clean facilities.
    Assoc. Professor WAT 1111 Vivian-Lee Nyitray My comment above about less than 25% need to use a Smart Classroom pertained only to that class in Fall Quarter: my upcoming Winter qtr class (RLST 005) uses several different technologies every class period.
    Assoc. Professor UNLH 1000 Steve Clark Underutilized. I went in with the idea that I would use the clickers a lot, but as I began using them I got a rush of emails from students in a panic (mine didn't work!!! Mine didn't work!!!). Maybe they did work and maybe they didn't. It doesn't really matter. The fact that students can assert that they didn't work made me decide not to use them for anything that had grade implications. I just didn't want to deal with student panic. In the end, I didn't use them much at all.

    Jennifer Doyle Your staff is great .
    Assoc. Professor LSP 2418 Rebecca Kugel My comment above sums up my experience -- the technology's great -- WHEN its working. Having to waste class time to call tech support is just that, a waste of precious time. And please schedule more presentations on technology; so far they've all been when I was in class and couldn't attend.

    Guillermo Aguilar Whenever possible, it would be desirable to have the projecting screen away from the whitebaord. Often times it is necessary to write on the board while presenting and we have to pull up the screen an even turn off the projector to do that.

    Assist. Professor ENGR2 138 Jesus Lopez-Fidalgo I have been just a visiting professor for the fall quarter
    Assist. Professor LFSC 1500 Gabriela Canalizo I used the LCD projector for every lecture, and I found that it was impossible to get it perfectly focussed. A staff person came a couple of times to try to get it better focussed, but the image was never very sharp. It would be nice if a projector with image quality could be purchased for this classroom.
