Multimedia Classrooms: LSU Overview

GROK Overview Banner

General Information

Classrooms are requested through the Registrar's Office and are funded by the LSU Student Technology Fee. Student Technology Assistants check the classrooms on an average of 3 times per week to check out the proper operation of the installed equipment. Issues are fixed or reported to Multimedia Classroom Support for immediate repairs or replacements before the start of the next scheduled classes. In addition to weekly maintenance, all classrooms are checked during semester breaks for necessary replacements and improvements.

If your department is planning on creating Multimedia Classrooms that utilize technology, ITS NEEDS TO KNOW!!  We must be involved in the Planning Stages.   
PLEASE READ THIS:  Multimedia Classroom Budgeting & Procurement.   

Multimedia Classroom Support

The Multimedia Classroom Support team supports the University’s needs for presentation media equipment by maintaining, scheduling, and circulating equipment to all segments of the campus. Traditional Audio / Video equipment, as well as portable multimedia equipment, is available for delivery to classrooms as well as on-campus offices. Instructional assistance in the proper use of the equipment is available upon request.
