Multimedia classroom podium tutorial and user guide

Main Menu

Using a Multimedia classroom offers you the opportunity to project images of your computer screen, video, books, photographs, and even 3-dimensional objects. Audio from various sources can also be played. The purpose of this interactive tutorial is to help you learn how to use the main features of the podium.

There are 3 ways to use this guide. If you want to go to a particular topic, click the topic in the index on the left. On pages with an image of the control panels, you can go directly to an explanation of each button by clicking on the button itself. If you want to read through the tutorial in a linear fashion, just type the return button on your keyboard or click any blank spot on the screen.

You can return to this main menu at any time by clicking on the “Return to Main Menu” icon on the upper left of each page.

There are 2 styles of podium, and old version and a new one. The best way to tell the difference is to look at the Display Power button. The old style podium has a single power button. The new style podium has a separate button for “on” and “off.” To begin the tutorial for either style podium, click its icon below.

The Document Camera is the same for either style podium. If you want instructions on how to use it, click on the document camera button below.

Old Style Podium

Currently, Information Technology Services (ITS) manages about 160 Multimedia Classrooms. Of these, about 1/3 have the older style control podium. These are scheduled to be upgraded to the new style by Summer 2011.

To tell if you have an older podium style, check the power button. If it is a single black button, then the podium is the old style. The new style podium has a separate “on” and “off” button.

Besides the different arrangement of buttons, there are a few functional differences between the 2 podium styles. One difference is the buttons themselves. In the old style podium, the actual buttons are above and below the labels. In the new style podium the labels are on the buttons themselves.

Another difference is in the function of the image mute. In the old style podium, to unmute the image you will need to push the button for the video source you are using. In the new style podium there is a separate button to unmute the image, returning you to your previous source.
