Distance Learning Booth and Hybrid Classroom AV System

This article describes the background, usage, and simple troubleshooting for the new Distance Learning Booth and Wharton hybrid classroom AV system.  If you are teaching from a classroom or GSR, you will likely encounter these systems, which are made to simplify teaching to remote participants, and cut down on the number of things to touch in the rooms.

Before you begin, you will need:
  • A laptop with one of the following sets of jacks on it.  These will likely be found on the sides or back of your laptop.
    USB- CUSB and HDMI

The Distance Learning Booth - Remote Teaching from a GSR

The Distance Learning Booth was designed with 2 goals in mind; create an AV system that makes it easier to teach to remote students, and design a system that requires very little contact.

The Hybrid Classroom AV System

The classroom hybrid AV system was designed in tandem with the Distance Learning Booth, and functions in a similar way.  It is installed in a number of rooms in Huntsman Hall.
