Classroom Technology

Electronic Classrooms

Hazel Hall has six large, fully-equipped electronic classrooms (120, 121, 221, 225, 329, 332) that contain custom podiums with a built-in computer. Each podium is equipped with touch panel controls for computer projection, document camera, sound, wireless microphones, a podium microphone, laptop hook-ups, and the ability to make a digital audio recording. Classrooms 120 and 121 also have video recording and presentation capture capabilities.

Hazel Hall has six smaller seminar rooms (222, 224, 347, 348, 412, and 432C) that are outfitted with technology including a smaller podium with a built-in computer, computer projector or SMART whiteboard, and laptop hook-ups. Rooms 224, 348, 412 and 432C also have document cameras. There is a small seminar room in the Law Library (350) that has basic technology, and a fully-outfitted conference room in the Deans Suite (215) that is used primarily for special events and internal meetings.

Courtrooms

There are two courtrooms that contain technology: the Trial Courtroom (122) and the Win Whittaker Appellate Courtroom (123). Both courtrooms have video and audio recording equipment as well as podiums with computers, laptop connections and touch panel controls.  Courtroom 122 also has a document camera. Use of the courtrooms is restricted to law school classes and events sponsored by the Moot Court Board and the Trial Advocacy Association. Student organization leaders must sign access agreements to use the courtrooms outside of classes. For more information, contact Carlos Sandoval, Room 362, csandov1@gmu.edu or 703-993-8261.

Classroom Capture

The law school has a classroom capture system installed in rooms 120 and 121 that enables faculty to record and stream video of their lectures, along with content (such as a PowerPoint) from the podium computer or a laptop. Faculty can also use special capture software on their personal computers or laptops to record a presentation for later viewing by students. Student organizations and law school departments can use the class capture system to record and stream their workshops and other events. For more information see Classroom Capture: Echo360.

Assistance with Technology

The University's Division of Instructional Technology (DoIT) provides routine support and troubleshooting of the equipment in the six large classrooms and three of the seminar rooms (224, 348, and 412). Faculty who need help with the equipment during their classes should call DoIT at 703-993-8226. DoIT staff are generally on duty during the following hours: Monday - Friday, 8:30 am-10:00 pm and Saturday - Friday, 9:00 am-5:00 pm. There are campus-only phones located adjacent to the podiums in most of these classrooms that can be used to call DoIT staff for help.

For training and specialized help, including assistance with audio or video recording, please contact Carlos Sandoval, the law school's Technology and Classroom Services Specialist, Room 362 of the Law Library, 703-993-4855 or csandov1@gmu.edu.
