Welcome to Your Smart Classroom!
The Smart protocol for classroom technology is designed to make using computer, video, CD, and DVD playing as easy as possible. Please, do not hesitate to address questions about the Smart classrooms to Library & Information Services. We can be contacted via E-mail (helpdesk@dickinson.edu), telephone (x1000), or by visiting the Help Desk on the lower level of the Waidner-Spahr Library.

Default Controller Settings:

On the controller you will see two buttons to the left, one for speaker A another for speaker B. The speakers will only operate properly if speaker A is pressed down and speaker B left up. Ensure that the TAPE 2 MONITOR light (red) is off.Note that the volume control for the speakers in the front of the room is located on the lower left hand side on the side of the controller.

Use the "Input" button on the remote to select your projection source; keep pushing it to cycle through your options. To turn the projector off, push the pink "On-Off" button on the remote. At the "Power off?" prompt, press the pink "On-Off" button again.  The projector fan will continue to run until the unit is cooled down; it will shut down automatically.
