Tips for Instructors

There are over 293 classrooms and class laboratories supported by CSS at UNT.  Each is equipped with a data projector, computer, and connections for a laptop computer or video source.  Each room’s equipment is operated in the same manner. 

Learning to Use CSS Equipment:  

  • "Hands on" -- go to a room and try it out
  • Learn from another instructor
  • Schedule an individual or group session with CSS (565-2691) in the room of your choice

Selecting a Source to Display:  

  • To select the display source for the projector, use the "Projector Remote" program on the installed computer's desktop. Click on "Computer”, “Laptop”, “Visualizer” or "Video". 

Using a Laptop Computer:  

  • If you plan to connect your laptop computer to the Internet from a room, plan ahead.  Some of the necessary setup steps could take several days to complete: 
    • You will need a data cable, which is available from Data Communications.
    • Your laptop computer must be set up to access the Internet from the building where you will be using it.  Contact your college/school computer support personnel for assistance. 
  • Video (and audio) cables for your laptop computer are available from CSS at no charge.  
  • Be sure to know how to activate the laptop computer's external monitor.

Technical Assistance:

  • CSS assistance is readily available during most classes, including night classes. In emergencies, we can frequently help over the phone.  

Room Maintenance:

  • If there is a problem with room furniture (desks, table, podium), please report to Facilities (565-2700).  
  • If you see something else that needs attention (lights out, too hot, etc.), please let us know and we'll report it to the proper department.
