Classroom support includes voice enhancement; video playback; overhead, slide, video, and computer data projection; audio and video recording; video-conferencing and teleconferencing; video-streaming; and video editing. Media Services can help faculty members connect their laptops to the Law School's network for use in classrooms or, if preferred, may supply (with advance notice) a laptop for occasional classroom use. Cable TV can be configured for classroom viewing in Hauser Hall, Kirkland & Ellis Classroom, Vorenberg Classroom, Austin Hall, and Pound 102.
Faculty can arrange for videotaping of student exercises in trial skills, oral argument, negotiation, and mediation in most Law School classrooms. Video playback of these exercises may be scheduled in playback rooms or in the instructors's classroom. Faculty may also request an LCD data projector for almost any classroom, and small DVD/TV combo units are available for video previewing and viewing in faculty offices.
Faculty may request to have any class audio recorded and burned to disk and/or have the audio file made available via their course website as an audio podcast or a streaming media file. Podcast files may be downloaded by students where Streaming Media files are accessed and watched by students but not downloaded. Please click differences between Streaming Video and Podcasting for more information.
Voice enhancement microphone systems are available in the Austin Hall classrooms and courtrooms, the Langdell classrooms, the classrooms of Pound Hall, Pound 335, Ropes Gray and John Chipman Gray, Hauser Hall, Griswold 110, Lewis 202, 301 and 302, the Hark Terrace Patio, Terrace Lounge, the Fireside Lounge, the Café and the Pub.
Videoconference and teleconference services are also available. These services are dependent on room and connection type (IP/ISDN). Please make requests for these services one week prior to the event. For teleconferencing an analog phone line must be available in the room.
QuickTime Webcasts are live video "broadcasts" that are streamed via the web. HLS webcasts are designed to stream over both dial up and broadband connections. In order to watch a QuickTime stream, one must have QuickTime Player installed on his/her computer. The free QuickTime Player can be downloaded from the ITS software library.
All requests for Media Services should be placed using the HLS Room Scheduling System.
