2020 Classroom Upgrades

All classrooms and labs have been deep-cleaned and sanitized, and will be cleaned every night when classes are complete for the day. Protective keyboard coverings have been placed on the keyboards at all student and teaching workstations. If a keyboard cover is missing, please email the CaTS Help Desk at helpdesk@wright.edu, and it will be replaced within one business day. Please do NOT spray and disinfectant on the keyboard, mouse, monitor, or any other student or teaching station equipment. 

Cisco Camera Class Upgrades

CaTS has upgraded 35 Dayton campus classrooms to support faculty teaching a combination of in-person and remote classes simultaneously. These classrooms feature Cisco video equipment, including a camera in the back of the classroom to capture the instructor and/or the whiteboard as class is being taught, as well as a Cisco control panel mounted on the teaching workstation which allows the instructor to control the different camera views, the volume of remote students as they interact during class, and the ability to share class content. 

For more information, including which classrooms have been upgraded, please visit the In-Person/Remote Video Learning Classrooms page.

2019 Maintenance Being Performed

Unless otherwise noted, all registrar-scheduled electronic classrooms and computer labs will undergo the following changes:

  • Routine reimaging of electronic classrooms and computer labs with an updated Windows 10 image.
  • SSD installations in student computer lab machines will allow for quicker login times. This project was completed in Summer 2019. Read more about this maintenance here.
     

2019 Installation of Solid State Drives (SSDs)

CaTS has been installing solid-state drives in computer labs to significantly reduce login/boot-up times. Times have been reduced from 4+ minutes to 2 minutes or less with these updates.

2019 Mac Mini to Dell 5050 Transition

All instructor workstations with Mac Mini computers have been replaced with Dell 5050 Windows PCs. See the Reminders section below for more information about these systems. We realize this change could be a concern for Mac users, so we have listed several alternatives for you in the Preferred Options for Mac Users section below.

Reminders

  • All electronic classrooms are now running Windows 10. There will no longer be an option to run a Mac OS from the instructor workstation unless using one of the options mentioned below
  • The power button is now located on the Dell 5050 under the workstation (pictured below).
  • USB ports are now located on the rack under the workstation (pictured below).

Instructor Workstation

Dell 5050

2019 Preferred Options for Mac Users

The Dell 5050s currently installed in your classroom is able to access the majority of services, apps, programs, and websites that you would need for your classes. However, CaTS realizes some users prefer Macs; below are preferred alternatives for those who still need to use a Mac in the classroom. 

1

For Mac Users Using a USB Drive

CaTS highly recommends putting your classroom materials into Pilot to access during your class. However, if you will be using a USB drive, test all of your course content to make sure it's formatted correctly in Windows 10. If you need assistance testing your course material, call the CaTS Help Desk at 937-775-4827.

2

Apple TV

Using an Apple TV gives Mac users the ability to use their own devices in the classroom. The Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) can provide training on how to effectively incorporate the use of Apple TVs in your course.
