Please do not hesitate to call Multimedia Services from the classroom phone if you encounter technical difficulty with classroom tech during class.  There is no need to struggle with technology issues that have simple solutions when help is just a phone call away. 

Carl is available for multimedia consultations and training if you'd like to try something new in your classroom; the best course of action is to schedule a consultation prior to the first use of the technology to work through it step by step with Carl before you use it in your classroom.  However, if you don't have time to meet with him before class time, let him know when and where you'll be using the new technology so he can be there the first time you use it in case you need help. 

Finally, when requesting a class recording, please let Carl know the location and date as well as the start AND end time of the class in advance.
