R25 Room Schedulers - Media Classrooms

Scheduling of Media Classrooms; Computer Classrooms vs. Computer Labs

Not all classrooms with computers are created equal.

Some computer populated spaces on campus are not actually available for use as a standard computer classroom. To distinguish the difference in R25, standard computer classrooms available for campus use are categorized as Classroom, Media aka Media Classrooms. Other specialized use only computer classrooms and open lab spaces with computers are categorized as Labs, Computer.

Schedulers looking for a computer classroom to use for a class or event on campus should search availability of Media Classrooms only.

How to check availability of Media Classrooms:

Using the Webviewer:
Events > Location Availability
• click on the Filter “Media Classrooms”
Note: Roll your cursor over the space number to view the Formal Name of the space. Click on the space number to open the Space Detail window for additional details of each space. Spaces marked with an asterisk in the Formal Name and “Priority for Scheduling” in the comments field are the first priority for scheduling in the CIS department.

Scheduler Note:
When checking availability of computer classrooms in the CM Building CIS would prefer that CM469, and CM470 be scheduled before any of their other classrooms. For easy identification, these spaces have been marked with an asterisk at the end of the Formal Name, and with “Priority for Scheduling” in the Comments field.
