Classroom Technology Training and/or Assistance

Feel free to schedule Media Services staff to come to your classroom to help you set up any audio-visual need you have. While we don't have the resources to attend every class throughout the semester, we are more than happy to help you learn how to use existing equipment the first few times you need it.

Microphone Setup

Though the majority of our classrooms are equipped with fixed podium and wireless clip-on microphones, special events (like panel discussions and mock trials) may require additional equipment. Several rooms have additional microphone connections.  We can set up the following:

  • Table microphones for panel discussions (C1, C5, C6, Courtroom, 109, 110, 2nd Floor Gallery, and 309)
  • Podium Microphone (Courtroom, 2nd Floor Gallery, court level atrium)
  • Sound System (microphones can be set up wherever the sound system is set up)

For a list of which classrooms have pre-installed microphones, see the Classroom Technology page.

DVD Playback

There are no DVD players in our classrooms, so you will need to use a laptop with a disc drive to show a DVD.  If you do not have one already, you can fill out a Recording/Request Form to request one be set up for you (faculty with school-issued laptops are required to use their own).

VHS Playback

Seattle University no longer offers support for VHS tapes.  VHS tapes will need to be digitized by a private service if the material on them needs to be shown.

Laptop Setup

Regular faculty and directors are required to use their school-issued laptops in classrooms.  Indivduals using their own devices will need to provide their own VGA adapters.  Laptops are only available for classroom setup for visiting guest speakers and symposium/conference presentations.

Sound System Setup (Portable Speakers)

A portable Sound System can be set up on the court level or in the outside courtyard.  These setups require advance notice via the Recording/Request Form.
