Blended Classroom Technology Guide

This guide details the basic steps necessary to begin a blended classroom session using installed web cameras and other technology equipment and web conferencing tools in standard Elon classrooms.

Get Started

This guide will walk you through three key steps to help you get started in blended classrooms at Elon. In the process, you will:

  1. Identify installed classroom technology
  2. Select your preferred web conferencing application
  3. Follow step-by-step instructions for connecting installed classroom technology and your preferred web conferencing application

Classroom Connections Printables

Each instructor station should have a "Classroom Connections" printable that serves as a quick start guide to the technology in the space. These printables can be found below as well.

Connect Classroom Technology & Web Conferencing Applications

These articles are designed to walk you through the basic steps of setting up a standard Elon University classroom for a blended class session using installed technology equipment and web conferencing applications. Detailed step-by-step instructions for each application will show you how to launch a live stream of your class session and, if desired, record the session for later sharing.

Troubleshoot Classroom Technology

Learning spaces on campus should have a web camera with a built-in microphone that may be used with conferencing tools, such as Zoom, Webex, and Microsoft Teams. Most learning spaces use the Avaya web camera, which is typically mounted from the ceiling. Some spaces use the Vaddio web camera, which is integrated into the Crestron system and mounted to the wall. The One Beyond web camera is used in select locations such as Koenigsberger 127, Lindner 208, and Carlton 221. 

Web Cameras & Audio

Instructor Stations

Most classrooms have instructor stations with Crestron touch-screen panels that control the technology installed in the room, including web cameras, projectors, screens, and inputs (e.g., laptops, document cameras, DVD player). 

Surge Spaces

In response to COVID-19 physical distancing requirements, many of the higher capacity meeting and event spaces on campus were converted to classroom spaces, also called surge spaces. Each space has been enhanced with additional equipment to meet in-person and remote classroom needs.
