Weekly Maintenance – Reminder            

Please log off your computer when leaving for the day every Thursday, but do not power it off.  This will allow updates to be sent down to your computer on Friday after 12:00am.  If you turn your computer off and leave it off overnight on Thursday, shortly after turning it back on, your computer will restart in order to install and apply any updates. If you leave your computer logged in Thursday night into Friday, you may lose any unsaved data you were working on when the computer restarts.

Robert Vance Academic Center Classroom Technology Upgrades

Upgrades to the video switcher units in the teaching stations are continuing throughout the semester.  As a room is completed, faculty scheduled in that room will receive an email notifying them of the change.  Instructions for the use of the new switcher will be placed in each room.  A table top touch screen interface will be added and the ability to utilize digital HDMI portable devices will also now be available.  To review this technology you may visit rooms that have already been completed as of the date of this message.  These include RVAC 003, 006, 123, and 305.  To request individual training in a room, please contact the Media Center at
