The Learning Center has Polycom speaker phones in some of its smart classrooms that are perfect for conference calls and interviews. College of Education faculty and staff can reserve rooms online using ScheduleIt. CoE students and non-CoE faculty or staff may also request rooms by calling (815) 753-1241 or stopping by the south wing service desk. Charges for toll calls may apply.
The Learning Center coordinates satellite downlinks with Media Services and can make the program available in one of our classrooms.
Please schedule well in advance for satellite downlinks in order to secure time on the university's satellite dish. If you'd like to contact Media Services directly, call Doug Ball at 753-6690 to set up a downlink. Then call the Learning Center at 753-1241 to schedule a room.
For more information on satellite downlinks, please visit the Media Services website.
The Learning Center is set up to receive most webcasts. If needed, we can run your webcast in multiple rooms. We can also provide phone access to toll-free numbers for these webcasts.
Check with us for available times and days. We'll work with you and the webcaster to provide a quality conference for you, your colleagues, and students. Call 753-1241 for more information.
We're sorry, but we cannot produce webcasts at this time.
