Media Center staff is available to instruct you on the usage of any room. There are directions posted in each room. Most rooms have telephones to use to call for assistance. Dial extension 2525 to report any equipment difficulty.
The recommended method to project a multimedia presentation in Marist classrooms is by using the resident PC located in the instructor's podium in each room. There is a connection available for laptop in most rooms, however, while Marist classrooms utilize standard projection equipment, there is no guarantee that any one particular laptop will be compatible with the system, behave in a predictable or desirable way, or be able to obtain access onto Marist's network.
To project one's own presentation using the resident PC, we offer the following suggestions:
1) Bring the presentation with you on some form of removable storage (USB, data CD).
2) Email the presentation to yourself so that you can access that email and download the presentation to the desktop.
3) For large files, you may utilize the Marist Dropbox which allows the transfer of large files (up to 2GB) to and from members of the Marist community. Learn more about dropbox.
Document cameras in many classrooms are available via software found on the podium computer's desktop screen.
