Stockton’s electronic classrooms are equipped with a podium containing a computer, webcam, document camera, and connections for personal laptops and other devices. The output of these devices is displayed through a ceiling-mounted projector and a simple to use keypad interface. The podium computer is for Faculty and staff use only.
Priority support is always available by contacting the ITS Help Desk (x4309) using the phone near the podium or equipment credenza location.

To connect your laptop or any other portable device (tablet, etc) to the projector,
open up the Cable Cubby on the top of the lectern. After hooking up the video cable,
set your laptop to the mirrored display option (Win + P on most Windows‐based laptop
keyboards). If you need an adapter for your laptop, please contact the ITS Help Desk
(x4309) using the phone near the podium or equipment credenza location.
USB DVD Drives for the podium computers are available upon request from the Help Desk.
All of our podiums are equipped with a Webcam and an area microphone for Zoom, or any other similar virtual meeting applications. If, when using Zoom in the classroom, you can’t hear, be seen, or be heard by your attendees, it’s likely you need to set the correct inputs for Zoom to use.
In most situations you should be using the Classroom Microphone, which is stored in the podium drawer and needs to be placed on top of the podium when in use. The red light indicates that it has power and is turned on.
To make sure you have the correct audio setup in Zoom, click on the Microphone option arrow and select “Microphone (USB audio CODEC)” as your microphone and “DVX-3155” as your speaker.
Each podium includes a webcam, normally mounted on top of the monitor. If the webcam is not present, check behind the monitor as it can be moved around and placed on the podium to view the classroom.
To use the webcam as your primary video stream in Zoom, click on the Video option arrow and select “Microsoft LifeCam Cinema”.
You may also stream your document camera over Zoom; depending on the podium equipment you should choose either “WolfVision” or “EPSON” as your camera. Document cameras are located in the podium drawer, along with the Classroom Microphone and the wireless presenter.
To use the document camera, open the side podium drawer carefully unfold the arm(s).
Place your document below the document camera and open up the Camera app on the podium computer. You can do so by searching “Camera” in the start menu.
If the camera app opens to the podium webcam, simply click the “Change Camera” button and it will change the image feed to that of the connected document camera.
Zoom and image adjustment buttons are located on the document camera unit.
When finished, please return the document camera to the folded position and close the podium drawer. Support is always available by contacting the ITS Help Desk (x4309) with the classroom phone.
