General Purpose Classrooms
Standard TLS classrooms, known as General Purpose Classrooms (GPCs), are technology-enhanced rooms designed to seat roughly 30-35 students. These rooms are used for the majority of classes and average 55 hours of use each week. TLS is responsible for over 100 of these spaces.
Presentation systems installed in these rooms allow faculty to use common presentation devices for delivering course material. GPC podiums have simple control systems that let faculty select a video source and control volume.
- DVD deck or DVD/VHS combo unit
- VGA and DVI connectors for PC and Mac laptops (Mac users will need a Mac display adapter) and portable visualizers (document cameras)
- Composite video connections for video cams, iPods, gaming consoles
- Campus phone, RIT network jack, and power outlet on the podium
