Welcome to fall semester 2012

Classroom renovations and updates 
Several general purpose classrooms and study spaces were renovated or upgraded this summer. You can find detailed project information on the OCM website, but here are a few highlights of classroom projects completed over the summer:

How to locate your classroom assignment
Room assignments for fall 2012 classes are available on the One Stop Class Schedule. Please note: room assignments are subject to change prior to the start of term. While this usually only affects a small number of classes, verify your classroom assignment before the first class meeting. If you have specific questions about your room assignment, contact your department scheduling coordinator.

Classroom technology instructions & videos
Classroom technology instructions have recently been redesigned. The previous PDF versions were replaced by printable web pages and updated to showcase classroom equipment and features available for each building with OCM-managed classrooms. The instructions for each building provide a list of equipment and additional features, a list of rooms that include the equipment/features, and an image of the instructor station in each classroom.
Orientation is available upon request for those who want to learn more about the new instructions. For any questions, contact OCM Classroom Support or 612-625-1086.

Hi, You guys are great!

It would be a great help to those of us who try to create seating charts in large, fixed seat rooms (such as Anderson 250) if you would produce an excel spreadsheet of the seats. There is a map in the classroom, but even making it available as a pdf for instructors would help.
