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..


To Turn on the Video Projector:
Find the remote for the Sanyo projector (see image above). To turn the projector on, point the remote at the front of the projector and push the pink "On-Off" button. Do not adjust the sound volume on the projector remote; use the sound system control (see below). Use the "Computer" and "Video" buttons on the remote to select your projection source. 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.
Note: The slide switch at the bottom of the Sanyo remote must be "on" in order for it to function.

To Turn on & View the Computer:
To use the computer, you will need to press the power button on the front of the tower. Once the computer has completely booted-up, you can access programs like PowerPoint, Word, and Internet Explorer by clicking the icons on the screen. To project the computer screen, with the projector on, press the "Computer" button on the Sanyo remote. When you are done with the computer, click the "Apple" pull-down menu from the top menu bar. Then choose "Shut down." If you need to use a different computer with the projector, please contact Library & Information Services (x1000) for assistance.

To Play & View a DVD, Videotape, or CD:
Find the remote for the Samsung combination CD/DVD/VCR unit. To turn the combination unit on, press the red "Power" button on the remote. With the data projector on, press the "Video" button on the Sanyo remote. Insert your CD, DVD, or cassette into the appropriate drawer or slot and press the "Play" button. To eject your disc or cassette, press the "Open/Close" button. Turn the unit off by pressing the "Power" button.

To Control the Sound Level:
You can control the sound for either the computer or the CD/DVD/VCR unit using the room's sound system. The sound system controller (see image above) is attached to the desktop. To turn the sound system on, turn the knob clockwise. You can adjust the sound level by turning the knob clockwise or counter-clockwise. Be aware. The volume controls on the computer interact with those of the sound system, so adjusting the volume on the computer will change the level of sound from the sound system as well. To turn the sound system off, turn the knob counter-clockwise until it clicks.


Please, turn off all of the equipment before you leave the room.

Thank you,
The Staff of Library & Information Services
