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 on the URI network: – Use your URI eCampus username – With your Sakai/wireless password. If you don’t remember your password, please call the Help Desk at 401-874-4357.
General Use To use an overhead projector:
1. Plug in the projector. 2. Select which bulb you wish to use (1 or 2). 3. Press the power on button.
The projector should now be illuminated and the fan should be running. Place your transparency on the projector and adjust the top mirror as necessary to get a clear image.
Bulb Switch There are two bulbs in each overhead projector. To switch between either, simply turn the projector off, then slide the designated lever (located on the front side) left or right. If the projector is left running while the switch is made, the risk of blowing a bulb is eminent.
Bulb Replacement1. Be sure to unplug the projector from any outlet. Wait until it has been off for at least 5 minutes. 2. Unscrew the small flathead screw located on the front side of the projector. 3. Lift up the top half of the casing, and carefully unplug the broken bulb. 4. Insert a new bulb and replace the casing. Replace the screw. Note: Be sure to plug the projector in before testing the new bulb(s). Signs of a Broken Bulb

Ask students waiting for the next class to remain outside the classroom until their instructor arrives. As the Instructor, you are responsible for the room’s security during your class time, so please lock up the cabinet when finished.
