The steps for setting up to teach in the Gray Ceremonial Courtroom are fundamentally the same as in our lecture halls, although the hardware controls are in part unique.  Information on the general setup for teaching in-person and online students simultaneously can be found in our guide to teaching during the COVID-19 pandemic.  Specific instructions for setup in the Gray Ceremonial Courtroom follow below.


A Note on Presentation Modes

The equipment in Gray has three separate modes.

  • AV Presentation mode
    • This mode is to be used for your classes.
  • Courtroom mode
    • This mode is limited, and restricts operation of AV equipment to the Judge's Bench position
    • If this mode is selected, the control panel on the teaching station itself will reflect that it has been locked out in Courtroom Mode
      • Should this be the case when you are setting up for your class:
        • Use the control panel on the bench to shut down the system
        • Restart from the teaching station's control panel using the steps below
  • Audio Only mode
