In Summer Sessions I and II, the Lecture Hall & Classroom Refresh Project focuses on Pepper Canyon. Last week, Pepper Canyon 109’s refresh was completed, bringing new audiovisual equipment to the 198 seat lecture hall.
A new brighter projector was added to Pepper Canyon 109. The brighter projection makes it easier for students to see the image. Even though the projector is brighter, it is actually more energy efficient than its predecessor, which contributes to the campus’ sustainability goals.
Controls for the projector, DVD/VCR, lights, and volume are now all accessed through the touch screen control panel in the lectern. Instructors can switch between media inputs and control the atmosphere of the room from one spot. HDMI and VGA connections are also available at the lectern for use with a laptop.
New lighting options were programmed into Pepper Canyon 109 during the refresh. These include several intermediate options that are ideal for projecting images by lowering lights in only in the front of the room.
A document camera can be found in a drawer on the right side of the lectern. Anything placed beneath this versatile tool is projected. Courses that sign up for screencasting through podcast.ucsd.edu will also have these images captured as part of the recording.
After the conclusion of the refresh, Pepper Canyon 109 was cleaned to get it ready for use by students.
An audiovisual system tutorial video is available for instructors who need assistance in a refreshed classroom. Receive immediate assistance by calling extension 4-ACMS (4-2267) from the phone located in every general assignment classroom or lecture hall.
Academic Computing & Media Services (ACMS) is proud to raise the quality of classrooms and lecture halls throughout campus through the Lecture Hall and Classroom Refresh Project in conjunction with Administrative Computing & Telecommunications (ACT) and Facilities Management.
