Iowa City AV

Note: Cedar Rapids Campus faculty should call 319-398-5521 for AV questions. The information below is only applicable to Iowa City campus.

What's here: All Kirkwood classrooms on the Iowa City Campus are equipped with instructor’s tables with PCs and a ceiling-mounted projection system for instructor computer, personal laptop, and video presenter projection. All classrooms have powered speakers, DVD drives in the PC, and video presenters (aka document camera or ELMO).  Some classrooms have a Sympodium.

Most instructors’ tables include a printed set of instructions attached to one side of the table in a clear plastic sleeve. These instructions include the basics for successful operation of the equipment. The library conducts special training sessions for new faculty, and we are happy to orient individual instructors to equipment in their classrooms by appointment. Contact the library service desk at 887-3613 or stop by room 107.

Call ext. 3613 for immediate assistance. There is a phone in every classroom.
