The classroom technology available in BB-12 is quite extensive. In addition to the typical technology found in other rooms in the Business Building, there is an additional capability that allows you to video conference and lecture capture.
Technology unique to BB-12:
All the benefits of traditional video conferencing plus
- The ability to use the TV screens at the rear of the room for reference to what is being broadcast to and from the classroom.
- The instructor can use the floor presenter pad to have the camera auto-focus on them during the conference.
- When a student speaks using the built-in table microphone, the camera can auto-focus on them so the remote party can see who is speaking.
To schedule a video conference, or to request assistance in conducting one, please refer to this page.

If you want to save your lecture, including any materials presented through the technology in the classroom, you can do so using the lecture capture functionality in the room.
- Record your lecture with the help of an assistant who can control what is being recorded via the wireless touchpanel in the classroom.

Hands-on Training Sessions
Contact the Classroom Technology Support office in LC-27 firstname.lastname@example.org or call (518) 442-3647 to schedule a one-on-one or group training session on using the equipment in a technology-enhanced classroom. Besides a description of the equipment and instructions in their use, the participants will be given the opportunity to work hands-on with the technology.
Online Instructional Videos
The Classroom Technology Support office has created informative videos to better acquaint the faculty with the equipment in the technology-enhanced classrooms. These short videos provide a brief overview of the different styles of technology in the UAlbany classrooms, as well as, demonstrations of specific equipment. Here are the UAlbany Technology-Enhanced Training videos.
In each classroom, at the lectern, there is a binder with instructional documentation for that specific classroom. The binder also contains general user information such as the software installed on the classroom computers.
