Classroom Technology

Trained technicians are available to help you when you have an issue with the instructional technologies – data projectors, digital displays, document cameras, DVD players, laptop connections, etc. - in your assigned classrooms.  Faculty members can report classroom technology problems to the OIT Help Desk at:

The Help Desk operators will create a ServiceNow ticket outlining your classroom technology issue, and if our technicians are unable to solve your problem over the phone, they can generally be at your classroom within a few minutes.  We also stock a wide variety of portable equipment to help keep your classes running in the event of any equipment failures.

Classroom technology support staff are on call M-Th from 8:00am-8:00pm, and F from 8:00-6:00pm.  We have offices at the Taylorsville Redwood, South City, and Jordan Campuses, and we also travel to support all other SLCC learning centers.

All of our classrooms contain a standard minimum technology design for ease of faculty use.  The installed displays – projectors or flat panel TVs - in the classrooms have available HDMI cabling to connect to your portable devices.  Simply make sure that your laptop, tablet, or other teaching device has an HDMI port, or an adapter that can generate an HDMI video output.  This will guarantee that you get the highest quality audio and video signals during your classroom presentations.

Level I

(462 classrooms)
These learning spaces have a minimum standard of instructional technology available for instructor and student use. The design of these rooms emphasizes faculty/student interaction and collaborative group work, with a technical infrastructure emphasizing the concept of “Bring Your Own Device” [BYOD]. Designs vary depending on usage, but most rooms typically incorporate a teaching podium or lectern, multiple display options on the walls (projection screens and/or flat-panel displays), advanced video/audio switching, sound systems with amplifiers and speakers, enhanced wireless connectivity for mobile devices, and Extron control systems for remote monitoring and troubleshooting.

Level II

(10 classrooms)
These “Flex” spaces contain most of the technologies found in the standard Level I rooms, with the addition of furnishings and equipment to enhance the flexibility of the learning space. Mobile tables and chairs, enhanced wireless capabilities, interactive videoconferencing (IVC) equipment, and multiple display options are some of the features of these rooms. Additional (20) flex learning spaces are scheduled to be available in 2016 and 2017.

Level III

(10 classrooms)
These spaces are defined as large auditoriums, lecture halls, or multipurpose rooms. They contain some combination of the equipment found in Levels I and II, with the addition of extra audio and video racks and control systems, and possibly some specialized lighting and sound systems. There are often more expensive models of the standard audio-visual equipment (e.g., data projectors) in these rooms as well, and they generally hold 150-500 students.
