Important Notes: Card Activation
This room is equipped with electronic access (a card-swipe lock). The electronic mechanism locks and unlocks with a swipe of an authorized URI ID card.
To unlock the door, swipe the ID card face-down so that the fat magnetic stripe slides through the lock as shown in the picture at left. To lock the door, repeat this process.
- A steady green light indicates the door is unlocked.
- A blinking green light indicates the door is locked.
Faculty assigned to teach in classrooms with electronic access should be automatically entered prior to the start of the semester, or 24 hours before a special event. To be safe, be sure to test your card at least 1 business day prior to your first class meeting.
If your card does not work, contact Facilities Services Access Control Office at 874- 4577, or e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Light switches are located on the wall adjacent to the door. These switches control all of the lights in the classroom.
Each room has at least one active ethernet port for use with the internet.
The port will be marked with a yellow dot.
There should be an ethernet cable in the rack drawer to use with the port.
If you find one is missing, please call Classroom Media Assistance at 874-4278.
If you are unable to get online using the wired port, or if you prefer, all rooms also have wireless internet access.
If you have not used wireless access in the past, please be sure to test out your laptop before class starts.
Some manufacturers have special programs or settings that control wireless, or your machine may have a physical button that needs to be selected.
If you have never used your laptop on the URI network, you will be asked to download and install and electronic policy key. You probably don’t want to do this during class time as it can be time consuming, so connect your laptop in your office first and get this step out of the way.
To authenticate with the policy site:
– Use your URI eCampus username
– With your Sakai/wireless password.
If you don’t remember this password, please call thhe URI Help Desk at 401-874-4357.
Turning the System “On”
Connecting a Laptop
Using the BlueRay/ DVD Player
Portables & Wireless
Assisted Listening System (ALS) Transmitter Microphone
ALS Receiver Units
Using the Assisted Listening System
If the microphone unit is not turned on, the system will automatically be in MUTE mode.
To turn on the microphone, open the lower half of the case front and press the ON/OFF button for 2 seconds. If you do not press for the 2 seconds, just ignore the MUTE ON or MUTE OFF prompt and the system will still be on.
If you want to mute the system, there are two methods. First, there is a mute button located on the top part of the microphone unit–this mutes just the microphone.
Second, you can mute the entire system. Open the lower half of the front case, press on/off. Respond to the MUTE ON prompt by clicking the Set button on the right of the case front. The system will now be muted. Conversely, to turn the Mute function off, open the case and click on/off button, then click Set.
Remember: Turn OFF the Microphone when done by pressing the On/Off button for 2 seconds. Return to drawer when finished.
Using the “ALS” Listen Units
Check that the Listen unit has batteries. Extra batteries are located in the rack drawer.
Turn the Listen unit on by dialing the volume wheel away from Off to the appropriate volume.
To turn the unit off, dial the wheel all the way back to Off.
You do not need to adjust any setting on the ALS receiver or transmitter in the media rack.
Please remember to turn OFF the Listen devices when done, coil the ear piece around the unit and return it to the drawer.
Turning the System “Off”
|To turn system off, select the red ‘Exit’ button on the top right most section of the screen.The system will prompt which part of the system needs to be shut down.|
For all intent purposes, select ‘Shut The System OFF’ button when done

- If the projector does not turn on, please call CMA 874-4278. There may have been a brown-out or power loss and the projector will need to be reset.
- If you do not see an image on the screen, but the system is turned on, make sure the source (DVD, camera, computer) has power and is correctly connected. Some sources will display a black screen when the unit is not giving a signal, some sources will show a blue screen.
- If the Windows computer image is shown on the laptop monitor but not the screen, use the FN + F4/F8 buttons pressed simultaneously and twice very fast. Pressing the keys only once moves the display from the monitor to the projector, pressing twice moves the display to both projector and monitor. Most computers use FN + F4, others FN + F8. Look at the FN keys (F1 -F14) to see which have an icon for a monitor on them.
- If an image does not appear when using a Mac, go to System Preferences (under the Apple Menu in the upper left), select the Displays preference pane, and click “Detect Displays.” Click on the Arrangement tab, then choose to either mirror the display or extend the desktop to the projector.
Your computer should automatically select the optimum display for use with the projector. If you want to change those settings, CMA recommends:
- If a 4:3 aspect ratio is preferred, use 1024 x 768 with a refresh rate of 60 Hz as your display settings.
- If a 16:10 aspect ratio is preferred, use 1280 x 800 as your display settings.
Please Remember to:
Ask students waiting for the next class to remain outside the classroom until their instructor arrives.
