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 Control the Sound Level:
You can control the sound for either the computer or the VCR using the room's sound system. The sound system controller is attached to the base of the iMac. 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.
