Meyer Classrooms Supported by Academic Computing

SULAIR's Academic Computing group maintains some of the most widely-used technology-enhanced classrooms on campus, all of which are located in Meyer Library:

• Room 143 contains 17 SUNet-enabled iMacs with a software image as supported in the Meyer, Tresidder and residential clusters. This room is equipped with an instructor's computer station, projector, DVD, laser disc, and VHS playback.

• Room 182 is a presentation room that accommodates classes and groups of up to 20. It is equipped with an LCD projector, multi-format VCR, and DVD player. There is also a Macintosh instructor's station.

• Room 183 is a presentation room that accommodates classes and groups of up to 17. It is equipped with an LCD projector and multi-format VCR. The room is equipped with 17 PC compatible computers, including an instructor station.

• Room 184 is a presentation room that accommodates classes and groups of up to 16 if desktop space is required. It is equipped with an LCD projector, multi-format VCR, and DVD player. There is also a Macintosh instructor's station.

• The Flexible Class-Lab, located on the second floor of Meyer Library, is a room containing furniture that is easy to reconfigure for small group work and discussions. It seats about 25 and features an LCD projector, DVD player, multi-format VCR, and an Macintosh instructor's station. The room is dedicated primarily for use by the Program in Writing and Rhetoric (PWR). Availability for other groups is determined once the quarterly PWR class schedule is finalized.

Additional Information
Faculty members can request that instructional software be made available on the PC and or Macintosh computer cluster image and, in some cases, the instructor station in the classroom. Requests should be made to software@acomp.stanford.edu. Some software requests might require support from the faculty member's instructional department.

Requests must be made well in advance for Academic Computing staff to evaluate the request and determine if it can be supported. It can take up to two to three months for software to be ordered, received, and installed on the desktop image before it is made available in the cluster and/or classroom. It is recommended that faculty make their requests in late March/early April for the following academic year.

Meyer second floor Technology Services Desk staff can provide basic support for the classrooms. More technical classroom problems will be referred to Academic Computing classroom support staff.

For more information about these classrooms, or to schedule the use of one of them, please see the Web at:
