Classrooms & Scheduling

The scheduling section provides access to information about deadlines, protocols, SSR1000 instructions, web forms for requesting to add a section, and more.

Also available, is information about classroom features and reservations. Use webviewer to see detailed information about classrooms and their availability.

The Schedule Desk needs to be notified of new course fees. Complete the course fees web form to inform them of course fee information.

Scheduling

Request to Add a Course Section (Corvallis) (Cascades)

Complete the appropriate web form and submit it to the schedule desk to request to add a course section for a term.

College & Department Contacts

Each department has at least one individual designated as their scheduling coordinator. This individual usually completes the SSR1000 and contacts the Schedule desk with scheduling requests. If you have a question for the scheduling coordinator for you department reference this list for their contact information.

Protocols

Learn about the policies governing the use of classrooms. The university has also instituted a zone scheduling policy to maximize the effectiveness of classroom use and student accessibility.

Reserved Seating for CRNs

Departments may elect to reserve seats in a course for students in a particular major and this section provides detailed information on how to make such a request.

Scheduling Deadlines

Please refer to the deadlines for submitting scheduling requests. It takes our office time to enter changes and timely receipt of requests ensures that we can meet the needs of all our customers in a timely manner.

Scheduling General Purpose Rooms

General purpose classrooms are campus classrooms that are available for use to any department. These rooms are managed by the Schedule desk of the Office of the Registrar. Departmental classrooms are managed directly by the department that has charge of the room.

SSR1000 Instructions

The SSR1000, also known as the call for courses, is a document provided by the Office of the Registrar to departments showing the course scheduling information as it existed in for the term in question during the previous year. Departments update the course information as necessary and return it to the Schedule desk for updating.

In consultation with the Faculty Senate Executive Committee, the following changes were implemented beginning with the Spring 2010 term:

Instructor of Record:

The “Instructor of Record” will be designated for all courses at Oregon State University by the primary instructor indicator flag assigned to that course. The “Instructor of Record” for a course will have the following requirements and responsibilities with respect to the recording of grades for that course:

  • The “Instructor of Record” will be responsible for the final determination, entry, and/or changing of all final grades associated with their course(s).
  • The “Instructor of Record” may not be a peer to other students taking that course (e.g., undergraduate to undergraduate, graduate to graduate, and/or professional to professional),except in cases where : 1) the instructor of record is teaching a lower level course that another peer happens to take (i.e., graduate TA acting as an instructor of record for an undergraduate course that happens to have a graduate student taking that course), or 2) an instructor of record is also simultaneously acting as a student pursuing either an undergraduate degree or graduate degree in another area that may be taught by another graduate TA.
  • The “Instructor of Record” may not be an undergraduate student with responsibility for either credit bearing or non-credit bearing portions of a course (lectures, recitations, 0 credit laboratories, discussions, etc.).
  • The “Instructor of Record” may not be an administrative staff member if they have no role in actually teaching the course (beginning in the Fall 2010). Emergency situations for an administrative staff to post grades for an individual course can be approved by a unit head each term. Those requests must be made to and approved by the Registrar.
  • The “Instructor of Record” may not knowingly provide to others their user account identification/passwords as per the Acceptable Use of University Computing Resources Policy.

 

Graduate Teaching Assistants:

  • Must complete the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) Online Tutorial, Online Privacy & Confidentiality Statement, and agree to the Online Acceptable Use of Computing components that are integrated with the Online FERPA tutorial in Blackboard.
  • Upon a graduate student’s completion of the Online FERPA/Privacy/Acceptable Use of Computing tutorial in Blackboard, the graduate teaching assistant can be an “Instructor of Record” for an undergraduate course.
  • Or, upon completion of the Online FERPA/Privacy/Acceptable Use of Computing tutorial in Blackboard, the “Instructor of Record” can establish that graduate student as a teaching assistant using a course management system (i.e., Blackboard). Appropriate roles allowed to such graduate teaching assistants are as a “tutor”, “course builder”, “grader”, and/or full graduate teaching assistant with all roles including “tutor”, “course builder”, and “grader” with grading privileges for assignments and exams for undergraduate students.
  • Must complete the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) Online Tutorial, Online Privacy & Confidentiality Statement, and the agree to the Online Acceptable Use of Computing components that are integrated with the Online FERPA tutorial in Blackboard.
  • Upon an undergraduate student’s completion of the Online FERPA/Privacy/Acceptable Use of Computing tutorial in Blackboard, the undergraduate student can be designated as an undergraduate teaching assistant recognized as a school official.
  • Upon an undergraduate student’s completion of the Online FERPA/Privacy/Acceptable Use of Computing tutorial in Blackboard, the “Instructor of Record” can establish that undergraduate student as a teaching assistant using a course management system (i.e., Blackboard). Appropriate roles allowed to such undergraduate teaching assistants are as a “tutor”, “course builder”, and/or full undergraduate teaching assistant with all roles including “tutor”, “course builder”, and “grader” with grading privileges for assignments and exams.
  • Undergraduate Teaching Assistants may not be an “Instructor of Record” or designated as a faculty member assigned to a course, and may not as a teaching assistant determine, enter, and/or change the final grade for other students.

NOTE: The learning management system "Canvas" will replace Blackboard in a phased migration beginning January 2015 and completing in January 2016. See http://blackboard-transition.oregonstate.edu/ for further information.

Protocols

Classroom Policies

View this section for detailed information about classroom policies including room assignment, access for students with disabilities, maintenance, and appropriate use of facilities.

Scheduling Changes After Registration

Departments are strongly encouraged to proof their schedules before priority registration opens for the term. Once registration begins, changes to the schedule are quite restricted.

Requesting changes to sections after registration begins:

  • Requests must be submitted via email stating the reason for the change and must have the support of the department chair.
  • Late day/time changes will only be approved under very unusual circumstances.
    • In the event a day/time change is approved, the section will be cancelled and a new section created. It will be the responsibility of the department to contact students to inform them of the change and invite students to enroll in the replacement section if the new day/time fits their schedule.
  • Courses newly approved by Academic Programs after registration begins will not be offered until the next term.
  • Once registration begins, sections will no longer be deleted, but will be changed to “cancelled” status.
  • Faculty and departments must not change or trade assigned classrooms without approval from Scheduling.       
  • Room changes are accommodated if an appropriate replacement is available. Departments should not continue to add students to a class with the expectation that a larger room will be found as there may not be one available.
  • In the event of an emergency closure of a classroom building, scheduling will attempt to relocate classes and will work with departments on this effort.

Credit & Contact Hours

The Office of Academic Planning & Assessment provides a definition of the correlation between credits and contact hours.

Zone Requirements

This class and classroom scheduling protocol helps students get the courses they need to graduate by reducing scheduling conflicts. For faculty, it optimizes access to instructional technology and facilities. The protocol applies to all classes scheduled in general purpose and departmental classroom space.

Classroom Policies

Room Assignment Policies are created to have the most positive impact on the largest number of students at Oregon State University. We use the following standards when assigning rooms:

  • Classrooms will be assigned based on class size and enrollment (with priority given to larger classes), room features, and proximity to academic units.
  • Seminars, colloquiums, classes and other regularly occurring events with a history of zero (or low) enrollment will be scheduled shortly before the term begins (approximately 5 business days).
  • Classes offered for credit take precedence over all non-class-related or non-credit events.

The institution uses many other detailed rules for scheduling that can be found on our website related to zone scheduling and assignments http://oregonstate.edu/registrar/zone-requirements.

Departmentally Controlled Classrooms

Departments that control classrooms or seminar rooms are expected to adhere to the time zones and to fully use those rooms before requesting a General Purpose Classroom.

Accommodations for Disabled Students

When an assigned classroom is determined to be inadequate for a disabled student or instructor, Disability Access Services will ask Scheduling to reassign the class to a suitable classroom.

Changes in Classroom Assignments

  • Any requests to change a classroom assignment must be made through the department’s scheduling coordinator. The coordinator will submit the request to Scheduling via the web form or email. Instructors may not move their class from an assigned room without prior approval from Scheduling.
  • In case of an emergency evacuation of a classroom or building, the department should ask Scheduling to relocate classes.

Room Size and Configuration

  • Seating capacity is specified in accordance with state and city safety regulations. If it appears that student demand will surpass the scheduled room, departments should contact Scheduling for alternate space. Overcrowding violates safety codes. It is unacceptable for students not to have appropriate seating.
  • Furniture and equipment such as overheads, chairs, and tables must not be removed from any classroom. If a room does not contain adequate facilities to meet the scheduled maximum enrollment or equipment needs, the instructor should contact the department scheduling coordinator for assistance. The coordinator will work with Scheduling to resolve the problem.
  • Departments should assess anticipated enrollment, and base any adjustments on actual course enrollment during the previous corresponding term; enrollment increases should not exceed 15 percent of the previous corresponding term. Departments projecting an increase greater than 15 percent must provide written justification to the Associate Registrar.

Appropriate Use of Facilities

  • Food service is not permitted in academic classrooms.
  • Some events may be denied use of classroom space if the event is inappropriate for the purpose of the classroom.
  • The possession, consumption, or furnishing of alcoholic beverages or controlled substances is prohibited in all classrooms.

Classroom Maintenance

  • Media Services, 541-737-2121, maintains and repairs all audio/video technology in a classroom. For immediate assistance, pickup up the help phone in the classroom for direct connection to the Media Services classroom help desk.
  • Facilities Services Work Coordination Center, 541-737-2969, handles classroom cleanliness, damage, lighting, seating, requests for lecterns, podiums or additional tables or chalk.

This class and classroom scheduling protocol helps students get the courses they need to graduate by reducing scheduling conflicts. For faculty, it optimizes access to instructional technology and facilities. The protocol applies to all classes scheduled in general purpose and departmental classroom space.

Departments should not expect that faculty members will be assigned the same space on a continuing basis.

The Registrar’s Office coordinates all class scheduling and room assignments with departmental coordinators who, in turn, coordinate with their instructional faculty members. Academic departments should do the following:

  1. Determine class offerings and submit schedule information no later than the specified deadlines.
  2. Notify Scheduling of section changes or cancellations immediately.
  3. Enter and maintain in Banner instructor information and maximum enrollment of all sections offered by the department.

Class Meeting Times and Zone Protocol

  1. Classes that meet two days per week for 1 hour and 20 minutes must begin on the first hour of the zone.
  2. Classes may not begin on the half hour; the exceptions are TR, Zone 1; and Zone 5.
  3. Classes that meet for longer than two hours (110 minutes) per session must be scheduled in Zone 5.
  4. Class meeting times may not cross time zones. Departments may cross time zones when scheduling 500- or 600-level graduate classes that meet for longer than two hours per session if they use their own department-controlled classroom.
  5. Each department must distribute its classes across all five days of the week (approximately 20 percent per day) and across the full class day (according to the percentages defined for each zone). Each class day has five zones. All classes must comply with the zones whether they are assigned to general purpose classrooms or departmental classrooms. Labs that will use GP classrooms must follow rules for lectures.
  6. Non-credit sections (those sections that have zero credit) are scheduled after all credit-bearing sections are assigned rooms.
  7. Use of classroom facilities for non-academic events must be approved and assigned by Scheduling.

Scheduling for MW, WF or MF, 3-Credit Sections

We will not reserve rooms for 3-credit courses on MW, WF or MF.

Three-credit sections can be scheduled in any zone if they are taught on MWF.

Scheduling for Lectures Meeting One Day a Week

Because of the demand for classrooms in the middle of the instructional day, it will not be possible to schedule sections that meet one day a week except in Zone 5 or on Friday.

If a department can schedule additional sections with "complementary" day and time schedules in the same time slot on different days, then we may be able to accommodate requests for one-day-a-week meetings. If, for example, one 3-credit course is scheduled into a room on M at 10–11, then a different section can schedule its meeting from 10–11 on W or WF in the same room.

Scheduling Classes on Fridays

Fridays are often used for department meetings, for instructor office hours, for research responsibilities, and for other tasks related to instructional work. Friday, though, is an instructional day and the zone percentages specifically take Friday into account, asking for 20% of sections for each day. In recent terms, our emphasis in using zones has been on stretching out the instructional day from 8 am to early evening, and that has been done primarily in the Monday through Thursday span.

Again, because of classroom availability limitations, please make use of Friday as an instructional day. The increased use of Friday for class sections makes more effective and efficient use of classrooms.

Scheduling in Departmental Classrooms

The zone percentages were established for two reasons—to assure student access to classes, and to ease the difficulty in assigning rooms. Though the zone percentages are applied regardless of whether the sections are scheduled in general purpose or departmental classrooms, if you can schedule sections in departmental rooms, that will alleviate some of the pressures on assigning GP classrooms.

Using departmental rooms is not an option for all departments, and departments may not be able to assign all sections to departmental rooms; however, if you are able to assign sections to departmental rooms, please do so.

Reserved Seating for CRNs

Seats in a class can be reserved for students in particular majors. The remaining seats may be reserved for students regardless of major.


Reserved seats must be entered in Banner before enrollment opens. Reserved Seating cannot be deleted once enrollment in the section has occurred.


Reserved Seating Example:

5 seats reserved for physics majors
10 seats open to non-physics majors
Maximum capacity of this class = 15

When the 5 reserved seats are full, any other physics major attempting to register for this class will receive a "Closed Reserve" error message. To get a 6th physics major into the class, the department can give that student a CAP (Capacity) override. Giving a physics major an override into the class does not lower the number of not-reserved seats, but instead will increase the total number of students in the class to 16.

When the 10 open seats are full, any other non-physics major attempting to register for this class will receive a "Closed Reserve" error message. The department may choose to give that student a CAP (Capacity) override, in which case the total number of seats in the class will increase by one.

How to indicate Reserved Seats on the SSR1000 report

In the SEAT column, write the major code/number of seats to be reserved for that major.

Example:

Writing "307/10," will reserve 10 seats for Computer Science (307) majors.

Optional: Wait Listing

If you want wait listing, a value should be determined for each reserved major.

Example:

Physics—Wait list 3
Computer Science—Wait list 2
Mechanical Engineering—Wait list 0
Total Wait List = 5

How to override Reserved Seats

To allow a student to register beyond the specified number of seats, use SFASRPO. The override code is CAP.

Reserved seats will be indicated in the Schedule of Classes.

Scheduling General Purpose Rooms

Schedule25

The university assigns classes to general purpose classrooms using Schedule25 (S25), a room scheduling software.

  • Departmentally controlled classrooms are assigned as requested by departments.
  • General purpose classrooms are assigned based on class size (with priority given to larger classes), room features and attributes, and proximity to department offices.

S25 helps achieve optimal classroom utilization. Manual schedule adjustments will always be necessary, but the bulk of room scheduling will be automated thus enabling staff to shift their attention to more complex scheduling processes.

SSR1000 Instructions

Instructions for Updating SSR1000

Please make all changes in RED INK. SIGN and return. In all places where website is mentioned, it is the website of the Office of the Registrar.

Click here for SSR1000 Definitions

To Change a Section

To change data, line through incorrect data lightly, and enter correct data.

To Delete a Section

Place "D" at the far left and then lightly line through entire first line of the course.

To Add a Section

Place "A" at far left, and enter all necessary information, either at the bottom of the page, or on an added piece of paper. Please complete all items when adding course, including grading mode.

To Activate/ Inactivate

If an "I" appears after the STATUS: at the far right, the course is Inactive. To make it Open, cross out the "I" and place an "O" for "Open". Enter the maximum enrollment in the MAX: space.

To inactivate a course cross out the "O" and enter "I" at the far left-hand side of the beginning of the first line of the course. An inactive course is a course that is not presently being offered but may become available during the registration period. This will temporarily inactivate registration.

Note: Please do NOT make a section Inactive if you know it will not be offered that term—mark it Deleted (see above).

To Crosslist

A course can be crosslisted with one from another department if approved by Academic Programs. You can check SCADETL to see if your course is a crosslisted course. Write the additional CRNs in the space provided. List total students accepted after INT MAX (Internal Maximum).

To Combine

Courses taught together, such as ME 421/521, can be "tied" together, either with the same enrollments, such as 48/48 and total max 48; or they can be 48/48 with a total max enrollment of 96. Different sections of the same course may also share a room and should be combined to ensure the headcount does not exceed room capacity. Write the additional CRNs in the space provided and list total students accepted after INT MAX:. "Combine" is functionally the same as "Crosslist" and will often be referred to as such by Scheduling.

Rooms

If a GP room will be needed, check with instructors for specific attributes desired: enhanced room, document camera, etc. Record those needs in the space provided. (Review the Room Attribute List for room information.) DO NOT include attributes that are not on the valid list. There are attributes listed by Facilities Services on Banner's SLARDEF that we do not include in the scheduling software.

If a departmental room will be used indicate the room. If unsure of the exact room at the present time, indicate "GRP TBAD".

If no room is needed, such as location based teaching, indicate "GRP OC".

Please note: classes are scheduled at the times and in the locations shown on the printout. If the class size/room size is not a good fit, Scheduling personnel will make necessary adjustments.

Change Meeting Dates

If a course meets for less than the full term, cross out the full term dates (which defaulted from the roll process) and indicate the correct dates or date range.

Restrictions

You can restrict by Department, Field of Study, Class, Level, Degree, Campus, College, and Student Attributes.  To indicate INCLUDE put a +.  To indicate EXCLUDE put a –.  Course prereqs cannot be added, deleted or changed without a category II curriculum proposal; they can be switched between "Enforced" and "Unenforced" with an email request to the Catalog Coordinator. See official prerequisite policy.

To Reserve

On the left side, write the major code/number of seats to be reserved for that major. Example: 307/10 reserves 10 seats for Computer Science (307) majors in the class. See web on Reserved Seating for Classes for information on this function.

To Change the Max or the Waitlist

Use SYASECT.

Please remember to SIGN AND DATE your work report and add your phone number. Make yourself a copy before you give us the original.

In consultation with the Faculty Senate Executive Committee, the following changes were implemented beginning with the Spring 2010 term:

Instructor of Record:

The “Instructor of Record” will be designated for all courses at Oregon State University by the primary instructor indicator flag assigned to that course. The “Instructor of Record” for a course will have the following requirements and responsibilities with respect to the recording of grades for that course:

  • The “Instructor of Record” will be responsible for the final determination, entry, and/or changing of all final grades associated with their course(s).
  • The “Instructor of Record” may not be a peer to other students taking that course (e.g., undergraduate to undergraduate, graduate to graduate, and/or professional to professional),except in cases where : 1) the instructor of record is teaching a lower level course that another peer happens to take (i.e., graduate TA acting as an instructor of record for an undergraduate course that happens to have a graduate student taking that course), or 2) an instructor of record is also simultaneously acting as a student pursuing either an undergraduate degree or graduate degree in another area that may be taught by another graduate TA.
  • The “Instructor of Record” may not be an undergraduate student with responsibility for either credit bearing or non-credit bearing portions of a course (lectures, recitations, 0 credit laboratories, discussions, etc.).
  • The “Instructor of Record” may not be an administrative staff member if they have no role in actually teaching the course (beginning in the Fall 2010). Emergency situations for an administrative staff to post grades for an individual course can be approved by a unit head each term. Those requests must be made to and approved by the Registrar.
  • The “Instructor of Record” may not knowingly provide to others their user account identification/passwords as per the Acceptable Use of University Computing Resources Policy (http://oregonstate.edu/fa/manuals/gen/computing-resources).

Graduate Teaching Assistants:

  • Must complete the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) Online Tutorial, Online Privacy & Confidentiality Statement, and agree to the Online Acceptable Use of Computing components that are integrated with the Online FERPA tutorial in Blackboard.
  • Upon a graduate student’s completion of the Online FERPA/Privacy/Acceptable Use of Computing tutorial in Blackboard, the graduate teaching assistant can be an “Instructor of Record” for an undergraduate course.
  • Or, upon completion of the Online FERPA/Privacy/Acceptable Use of Computing tutorial in Blackboard, the “Instructor of Record” can establish that graduate student as a teaching assistant using a course management system (i.e., Blackboard). Appropriate roles allowed to such graduate teaching assistants are as a “tutor”, “course builder”, “grader”, and/or full graduate teaching assistant with all roles including “tutor”, “course builder”, and “grader” with grading privileges for assignments and exams for undergraduate students.

NOTE: The learning management system "Canvas" will replace Blackboard in a phased migration beginning January 2015 and completing in January 2016. See http://blackboard-transition.oregonstate.edu/ for further information.

Undergraduate Teaching Assistants:

  • Must complete the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) Online Tutorial, Online Privacy & Confidentiality Statement, and the agree to the Online Acceptable Use of Computing components that are integrated with the Online FERPA tutorial in Blackboard.
  • Upon an undergraduate student’s completion of the Online FERPA/Privacy/Acceptable Use of Computing tutorial in Blackboard, the undergraduate student can be designated as an undergraduate teaching assistant recognized as a school official.
  • Upon an undergraduate student’s completion of the Online FERPA/Privacy/Acceptable Use of Computing tutorial in Blackboard, the “Instructor of Record” can establish that undergraduate student as a teaching assistant using a course management system (i.e., Blackboard). Appropriate roles allowed to such undergraduate teaching assistants are as a “tutor”, “course builder”, and/or full undergraduate teaching assistant with all roles including “tutor”, “course builder”, and “grader” with grading privileges for assignments and exams.
  • Undergraduate Teaching Assistants may not be an “Instructor of Record” or designated as a faculty member assigned to a course, and may not as a teaching assistant determine, enter, and/or change the final grade for other students.

NOTE: The learning management system "Canvas" will replace Blackboard in a phased migration beginning January 2015 and completing in January 2016. See http://blackboard-transition.oregonstate.edu/ for further information.

Valid Room Attributes

Any combination of these attributes may be included for individual CRN sections on the Call for Courses report.

Please remember that, if listed, these attributes are required and they override any attribute requirements from the departmental level. The scheduling software will not find you a room that doesn't have these attributes.

Also, be aware that all attributes are treated as "AND" requirements. If you list requirements such as "S1" (Tablet Arm Chairs (movable)) and "S3" (Tables/Chairs (movable)), the system will only find you rooms with both, which aren't many. All GP rooms have at least one writing surface, so there is no need to list whiteboard or blackboard if either will do.

We have tried to supply attributes to encompass many "OR" situations, such as the "S0" (Moveable Chairs (any)) attribute. DO NOT request a combination that physically does not exist on campus. This is not the place to indicate to Facilities Services what kind of rooms we should have.

List of Valid Room Attributes

Room Types

Code Definition
GP Simply means General Purpose Room. We add this automatically when entering attributes. You do not need to write this, but you will see it on the report. You can also write this in if you wish the system to ignore departmental requirements and give you any appropriately sized and located GP room.
E111 E111: Enhanced Clsrm Projector. Fully enhanced with projection onto an appropriately sized white screen. Be aware that courses with small expected headcount asking for E111 may not get placed until late in the process. It is better to use E113 unless projection is absolutely required.
E113 Enhanced Classroom (All). Includes either projection, monitor carts or the new flat panel screens. Smaller rooms may use a monitor instead of a projector, but you have a greater chance of being placed in your preferred buildings.
GPC Means General Purpose Computer Classroom. This is a classroom with computer stations for each student. This attributes is used only in conjunction with 016 or 017.
016 Computer Classroom (PC). This means a PC computer station for each student. Due to limited availability, these rooms are pre-assigned. However, we would like this attribute listed for better tracking.
017 Computer Classroom (MAC). This means a Mac computer station for each student. Same as with the PCs, these rooms are pre-assigned. However, we would like this attribute listed for better tracking. Some rooms are "dual boot" and it may give us some additional flexibility to meet needs.
F1 Auditorium/Projection Booth. Yes, a projection booth.

Electronic Equipment (Other than that which is included in "Enhanced")

Code Definition
Z2 Intructor Mic/PA. Our list is based on the list provided by Media Services.
V14 Document Camera. Sometimes referred to as the "WolfVision" cameras.
V15 Interactive Display(SMRT). Ability to annotate over any computer image. This used to be listed as SMRT.
VARS Audience Response System. Included software in every "E113" by default. We include this in case Media Services decides to change their default.
VPOD VPOD: Lecture Capture-pod cast. Welcome to the 21st Century. Arrangements must also be coordinated with Media Services
VDIS Distance Interactive System. For video link-ups with other sites. Arrangements must also be coordinated with Media Services
VPWR Power Outlets at Seats. For those who forgot to recharge all their electronic devices the night before.
F5 Phone Jacks. For teleconferences. Our documentation on these rooms is limited, but we did try to note a few.

Writing Surfaces

Every GP room has some sort of writing surface. Only include these if you really care which type.

Code Definition
Z5 Whiteboard. Sometimes the pens will even be there.
Z6 Whiteboard Only (no Chalk). For our instructors that are allergic to chalk dust or have amathophobia.
Z7 Chalkboard (Any Size). Who needs color?
Z8 Board >= 24ft long. We have lowered the size to 24 ft. This now includes whiteboards, so if you are picky you may want to include either Z5 or Z7. Also includes rooms where the board may be shorter than 24ft but has sections that can be raised and lowered as needed.

Seating Arrangements

Please note that there are some rooms that don't fit neatly into an attribute we thought people would ask for. Who really requires fixed tablet chairs on a flat floor?

Code Definition
S0 Moveable Chairs (any). This includes both "S1" and/or "S3". The perfect choice if you want to be able to move things around.
S1 Tablet Arm Chairs (movable). Not bolted to the floor.
S3 Tables/Chairs (movable). Some tables are more movable than others. We tried to include those that can reasonably be repositioned to meet the needs of the class.
S5 Tiered Seating. Actually tiered or sloping, but generally fixed. Can be long tables, theatre style, starting flat and then going up, etc. Mostly large rooms.

"Permanent" Room Features

Code Definition
A4 Carpeted Floor. No guarantees as to coffee stains, but carpeted.
A6 Flat Floor. May be carpeted, linoleum, wood, or concrete.
A7 Raised Platform for Professor. Be aware that not all platforms are wheelchair accessible.
A8 Windows. Some degree of natural light. A tiny slit in a door does not count.
A9 Room Darkening Capability. This was somewhat of a judgment call. We didn't include any rooms with those wimpy white shades or blinds that won't close.
A2 Air Conditioning. Portable swamp coolers don't count.

Unique Features

Code Definition
F2 Demonstration Facilities. Rooms with gas/air hookups, etc. Not just a long table to put your stuff on.
SINK Sink used for class purposes. We even tested to make sure there was running water. Not sure if they actually drain to anywhere...
Z11 Proj Screen Offset From Board. One of the more confusing attributes. It includes rooms where the projection screen is not dead center of the front of the room. The screen may be half the front (to one side) or at an angle. Also includes rooms with multiple screens and rooms with one screen and writing surfaces on more than one wall. With multiple screens, the screen for the enhanced projector may still be centered. Generally more restrictive than the "Z12" attribute.
Z12 Proj Screen blocks < 50% board. Again, somewhat of a judgment call. We didn't include rooms where you have a bit of writing surface, the screen, and then a bit more of writing surface. We tried to include those where you can have the screen down and still have a single sizable chunk of writing area. Little whiteboards to the side don't count.
VPRS PH Requirements Specific. Unique PH equipment.

Accessibility

Code Definition
ALD Assistive Listening Devices. Rooms as provided by Media Services
ADI Wheelchair-accessible for Instr. Only includes rooms where the instructor can access all teaching equipment at the front of the room. Excludes rooms with platforms but no ramp.

Scheduling

The computer rooms do not "roll over" each term — you need to contact Scheduling each term. Please know the room you want and its attributes before you contact us; we just schedule them.

Instructors and students will need an ONID account to log in. Visit the room before your first class to insure it meets your needs and that the software you need is available.

Hardware & software questions: Contact Russ Born, 7-3123, in 120A Milne Computer Center.

Enhanced Classrooms

Enhanced Classrooms are computer-equipped and networked to campus servers and to the Internet for complete large screen computer data and video projection for classes ranging in size from 50 to 750. A faculty member can now come into the room, open the teaching podium, turn on the equipment and begin instruction immediately. A full-time support person is on-call to assist faculty with equipment or network problems. Please see Webviewer for enhanced classrooms.

Kidder & Owen Hall Rooms

Kidder Hall 278, Owen Hall 102 and Owen 106 are specially equipped television classrooms used for distance education interactive classes. Situations may arise in which another class needs one these rooms during your scheduled class time. If that happens, you must relocate your class or event. Scheduling in the Registrar's Office, 541-737-2181, will assist you. If you anticipate a problem, or do not want to take the chance of having to move during the term, tell Scheduling so they can assign you a different room.

 

Kidder 278

Kidder 278 is a General Purpose Classroom that is limited to certain equipment. The room features a dry erase marking board, a VHS videotape player, television monitor, and computer scan converter. The room is not equipped with a projection screen. If you need to use an overhead projector, slide projector or motion picture projector you will need to be relocated to a different room. Although this room has a scan converter that may be used with a computer, its resolution is only suited for presentation with 24-point or larger fonts. Kidder 278 is kept locked by means of an electronic door lock. You will be assigned a code for unlocking and locking the door. Be sure to lock the door when you leave. There are microphones fastened to the desks. Please ask your students not to play with or damage them. The cost to replace them is more than $250 each. If you have questions about the interactive television features in Kidder 278, contact John W. Myers in Kidd 142B, 737-0596.
