  3. 3. Introduction (addressed to the facilitator) Welcome to this unit of instruction for room ED 202. The smart classroom in ED 202 was built by CILT using General Student funds which means that this room is available for use by all faculty members on campus. The original purpose of the room was to bring smart classroom technology to the Education building, meaning equipment such as an ELMO document camera, and LCD projector with a desktop computer and laptop connections and multimedia capabilities such as VHS and DVD players. However, while working with the IDT department, CILT was able to “tweak” a few features to make this equipment usable for distance education. This course demonstrates those features. Distance education gives us the means to reach students who we would otherwise never reach. It has become an important method of higher education in the digital age and in order for UND to compete in the nation for quality students, we must find ways to integrate distance education into our teaching and bring the education to the student. In addition, President Kupchella has addressed the problem of overpopulation on our campus by issuing a Strategic Plan which includes the following goal: “Increased number of degree programs and courses available over the Internet and via other distance modalities.” Clearly distance education is a primary goal for all faculty members on the UND campus and this training helps meet that goal. This smart classroom is designed to accommodate distance instruction. Not only does it include the usual classroom enhancements but it also includes the ability to broadcast one way using streaming, record with or without editing and broadcast two way using audio conferencing and Breeze. Content This face-to-face instructional unit was designed to train faculty members of the College of Education and Human Services at the University of North Dakota to use the smart classroom in the Education Building Room 202 for distance education. The College of Education and Human Services should be a leader on campus for cutting edge teaching methodologies and it is important for faculty at UND to offer high quality distance education for their students. This smart classroom system provides a means to do that without sacrificing the face-to-face quality of classroom instruction. Learners should have some knowledge of computers and may or may not have used a smart classroom on the UND campus in the past. Beginners and advanced learners should all feel comfortable with this instruction as I have broken down each task into simple steps while at the same time provided supplemental information in the form of suggested reading and tech tips for those who wish to learn more. This instructor manual is designed to guide face-to-face instruction by providing you with detailed information on each unit of the training. Job aids in the student manual will supplement the training and help trigger student memory for each task if the manual if used at a later time. I have also provided photos and screen shots which should aid you in the teaching process. Instructor’s Manual 3
  4. 4. Organization This instruction is designed to take about 120 minutes and is divided into five modules. The modules are ordered from least complicated to most complicated use of the smart classroom. Each module is divided into short units which are 10 to 20 minutes each. Each unit contains the following sections: Objectives, Introduction, Discussion/Demonstration, Summary and Practice. Module I is entitled “Regular use of the smart classroom.” In this module you will orient the student to the manuals, the classroom and the equipment and show them how to turn the system on and off. You will also demonstrate how each component works and allow students a chance to practice it themselves. Module II is entitled “Passive (one way) Broadcasting” and this is where you will discuss how to use the system to stream audio and video for viewing without interacting. In Module III, entitled “Recording” you will teach how to record sessions on the system. Module IV will demonstrate how to perform two way audio and video conferencing and is entitled “Active (two way) Broadcasting” Module V will recap what you have taught and gives a couple of short quizzes on the important points of each module. These quizzes will also serve the function of helping the students remember what they have learned and to make sure the objectives of instruction were met. Materials • DVD to demonstrate player • DVD-R/RW to demonstrate record feature • Experience Assessment – should be distributed before training (copies in both manuals) • Flash drive to demonstrate how to upload files • JVC remote control • Laptop to demonstrate how to use with system • Mini-DV tape to demonstrate record feature • Spare AA batteries (2) – just in case instructor microphone is low • Room diagram to orient class to room (copies in both manuals) • Student manual to distribute to each student • “The Recording Process” diagram (copies in both manuals) • VHS tape to demonstrate VHS player Unit Planning Units take between 10 and 20 minutes to complete for a total session time of about 90 minutes. Instructor’s Manual 4
  5. 5. Training Objectives Module I – Regular use of the smart classroom Part 1 – Getting Started In this section we will review the student manual and take the experience assessment if it has not been done before. Part 2 – Tour of the system and powering up In this section you will show students how to turn on the system, the touch panel, and the power to the desktop computer. Part 3 – Projector, camera and instructor mic In this section you will demonstrate how to turn the projector on and off using the touch panel, how to control the camera using the touch pane and how to use the instructor microphone. Part 4 – Using computers with the system You will demonstrate how to use the desktop computer and your laptop with the system. Module II – Passive (one way) Broadcasting Part 5 – Streaming You will explain what it means to stream in real-time and you will summarize the process by stating the procedure for contacting the IDT department. Part 6 – Recording to mini-DV tape In this section you will teach students to record sessions to mini-DV tape Part 7 - DVD In this section you will teach students to record sessions to DVD, DVD-R and DVD-RW. You will also review a job aid on how to finalize a DVD. Module III – Active (two way) Broadcasting Part 8 – Audio conference You will demonstrate how to hold an audio conference using this system. Part 9 – Breeze In this section you will show students the following: Logging in, changing participant levels, using the audio conferencing feature, recording a meeting, sharing the desktop, sharing documents. Module IV – What did we learn? Part 10 – Recap and Assessment You will briefly review the objectives for the previous sections. You will give the students their paper-based assessment to complete. Then you will use the checklist to assess them while they demonstrate their knowledge of the system by performing the required tasks. Instructor’s Manual 5
  6. 6. Module I Regular use of the smart classroom Instructor’s Manual 6
  7. 7. Part 1 – Getting Started In this section we will review the student manual and take the Experience Assessment if it has not been done before. Time required: 10 minutes Materials needed: Student Manual, Experience Assessment The Student Manual This student manual is designed to supplement the face-to-face instruction by providing students with job aids for various aspects of the training. Job aids will help trigger student memory for each task and will walk them through each task step by step. Photos and screen shots have been included which should aid with this process. Each lesson has plenty of space for note taking during the instruction as well. If facilitation is not available, students may use their manuals as stand-alone training guides. Students who need assistance in the future are advised to the help number on the podium or contact CILT at (701) 777-2129. Conventions These graphic conventions will be used to help you quickly identify certain types of information: Instructor speaks icon will appear in conjunction with green text to indicate when the instructor should be speaking. Some of what the instructor says will be in bulleted points which can be put in your own words, and other things should be spoken exactly as phrased in this manual. Thank you. This icon indicates that the instructor should take some kind of action (rather than speak). Job Aids will provide step by step instructions on how to perform a specific task. Notes sections give you a little extra information about a topic. Reading sections provide you with resources to find extra reading if you’re interested in learning more. Tech Tips provide you with technical tips for using the equipment. Something Extra provides you a place to go or something to do that will supplement the instruction for the task. Instructor’s Manual 7
  8. 8. Instruction Begins Instructor’s Manual 8
  9. 9. Welcome to this course on the smart classroom for distance education. This instruction is designed to go from less to more complicated. Distribute the student manual while you’re speaking. Please turn to page 2 of your Student Manual, the Table of contents. We start out by reviewing some of the features of the smart classroom. Then we talk about broadcasting and how we can stream and record sessions for distance students. We can also use Adobe Connect Professional, a web conferencing software application which allows simultaneous communication, can be used with the audio conference feature to facilitate two way broadcasting for distance students. Please go to page 7 of the Student Manual for the Getting Started section. (Pause to give the student time).This section explains that the Student Manual is designed to be a supplement to the face to face instruction for learners to refer to while learning and later as step by step instruction. Feel free to write in your manual as we go along to take notes. You should also be aware that the last section of this instruction will be assessment. There will be three paper-based quizzes and then you will be asked to walk through all of the instruction that we cover and demonstrate what you have learned. Has everyone taken the Experience Assessment? If not, please turn to page 8 in your Student Manual and take a moment to fill it out now. Instructor’s Manual 9

  12. 12. Part 2 - Tour of the system and Powering up Objective(s) Given a verbal prompt, the student will be able to demonstrate how to power up all components by touching the touch panel or the power switches every time. Time required: 15 minutes; Prerequisites: None Materials needed: student manual, experience assessment, room diagram Introduction The purpose of this unit is to orient the learner to the room and its contents and to show the learner how to power up the equipment. I have created a diagram of the room which is included in the student manual as well. Have the learners refer to the diagram as you walk around the room and point out the various components. Discussion/Demonstration Please turn to page 11 in your Student Manual and take a moment to look at this diagram (page 13 in this manual). Give them a moment to review it and then say: As we discussed, many of the features that you see on this diagram are common to the smart classrooms on campus like the projector and the podium. However, this room is distinctive because of its ability to record class sessions for distance education. . Please refer to page 12 in your Student Manual as I give you a quick tour around the room and explain each component Walk slowly around the room as you point out each item and end up at the podium when you’re done. Make sure to refer back to the diagram to point out each component – they will be quizzed on the diagram later. Instruction continues on page 14 Instructor’s Manual 12
  13. 13. Tour of the system Diagram of smart classroom set up in ED 202 Instructor’s Manual 13
  14. 14. Tour of the Room (As you walk around the room) Here we have the projector screen (point to it and pull it down if necessary) and the projector (point to it) which is controlled by the touch panel. Projector - Use the touch panel to turn the projector on and off. Boundary microphones • Two on each side wall • Pick up the voices of the students in the room • The sound goes directly to the podium for recording or streaming. • Broadcast student voices to the people at a distance • Acoustic materials will be added to walls and floors to reduce echo The camera is • high resolution analog camera Go to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/3CCD for more information on 3CCD high resolution cameras. Speakers • 8 speakers built into the ceiling • broadcast audio from a distance and from the instructor station. Touch panel • sits on top of the podium • “brain” of the system Inside the podium you will find the various components of the system. (end by standing at the podium) Instructor’s Manual 14
  15. 15. Powering Up Demonstration/Discussion/Practice Please join me here at the podium, and bring your manual with you. • Here you can see the touch panel, the computer monitor and the various components of the system. (Open the cabinet door) • Labeled for your use is the main power switch. If the system is not turned on when you arrive, simply flip this switch (point to it and ASK THE STUDENT TO TURN IT ON). Wait a few seconds for the system to boot up, then turn on the Gateway power (point to it and ASK THE STUDENT TO TURN IT ON). • Once these are activated, the system should be up and running. Main Power Gateway Switch Power Switch Tour of the touch panel Has anyone used a touch panel before in another room? (If yes, ask if it looks similar) Once the power is on you can touch the touch panel to wake it up (ASK THE STUDENT TO TOUCH IT – unless it is already on). The touch panel acts as the “brain” for this system and is controlled by simply touching the screen. The components of the smart classroom are represented on the face of this touch panel. On the left side of the touch panel are the interface buttons for the computer, a laptop, the VCR and DVD player and the document camera. Instructor’s Manual 15
  16. 16. On the right side of the screen you see the projector power buttons, a clock, and the media volume controls. On the bottom is the help button, which tells you how to call for assistance and the mic volume which allows you to turn up the volume on the instructor microphone. Also on the bottom are the buttons that control the distance education features of the room: the audio conference, record and camera control buttons. We will be covering each of these later. 16
  17. 17. Part 3 – Projector, camera and instructor mic Objectives 1. Given the touch panel, the student will be able to demonstrate how to control the projector by turning it on, adjusting settings and turning it off using the touch panel with 100% accuracy. 2. Given a verbal cue, the student will be able to demonstrate how to use the camera by manipulating the touch panel buttons with 100% accuracy. 3. Given the instructor microphone, the student will be able to demonstrate how to power up, position and control the volume of the instructor microphone by performing each activity with 100% accuracy. Time required: 10 minutes; Prerequisites: None Materials needed: spare AA batteries (2) Introduction In this next section, I will show you how to turn the projector on and off using the touch panel. You will learn how to control the camera using the touch panel and you will also learn how to use the wireless instructor microphone. 17
  18. 18. Projector Make sure the projector screen is down. This projector is just like any other LCD projector you’ve used, but you use the touch panel to turn it on and off. It is controlled by using the power buttons on the upper right hand corner of the touch panel (point to them). The lights on the projector will indicate whether it is on or off. Can you tell if it’s on or off now? Discussion/Demonstration (ASK THE STUDENT TO DO THE FOLLOWING). To turn the projector ON, press and hold the button, then wait a moment. The ON button will turn green when the projector is on but it usually takes a few seconds to warm up. If you are trying to turn it on and it’s not responding, touch and hold the off button for three to five seconds and then try turning it on again. 18
  19. 19. Camera Introduction To switch to the camera interface, touch the “cam control” icon on the bottom of the touch panel screen (ASK THE STUDENT TO DO THIS). This should turn the camera on – watch it for movement – it should rotate to the windows and back to face the podium. Discussion/Demonstration If the camera is facing away from you, you will need to use the touch panel to turn it on. The camera is always on but it does go to sleep so you may have to power down the entire system and re-power to wake it up. 19
  20. 20. This is the screen for that comes up when you press the cam control icon. There are 5 camera presets that you can use to change the camera angle. (ASK THE STUDENT TO TRY THESE). Pan and tilt controls Zoom controls Also on this screen you see controls for camera. Similar to how you might use a camera for personal use, the camera can also pan, tilt and zoom by using the white arrows on the screen (point to them). (ASK THE STUDENT TO DO THIS) 20
  21. 21. Say this as they do it • Pan moves the camera side to side • Tilt moves it up and down • Zoom moves the focus closer to or further from the object The longer you hold down the arrow button, the quicker the camera moves. (ASK THE STUDENT TO DO THIS.) You can also get a full screen view of what is being shot by the camera. Simply press the “Touch for Full Screen” area on the touch panel. Touch it again for normal view. Touch anywhere but the arrows. Touch for full screen Summary As you can see, the camera is a very important feature of this system, especially for distance ed. Next we will discuss the wireless instructor microphone Turn off the Projector (Allow the student to turn projector off. Provide learner guidance as needed.) To turn the projector OFF, hold the off button down for about 5 seconds until you see the off button turn red and the projector turn off. Be careful that you only press the off button – if you activate the On button as well, it will not turn off. 21
  22. 22. Instructor Microphone Introduction Get the mic from the drawer. Have you used a wireless lapel mic before? Are you familiar with the 8 inch rule? (The microphone should be placed 8” from your mouth) Discussion/Demonstration Practice Show the student the power button and hand it to them. Let them perform the following tasks while providing guidance. • Press the power button for three seconds to turn it on – watch for the display to turn on. • Check the battery indicator to be sure you have full strength. If you use the last of the batteries in the drawer, please call CILT by picking up the phone. They will replenish the supply. • Place the lapel mic about 8 inches away from your mouth • The clip-on microphone must be positioned as shown below to work correctly. Center it on your body rather than putting it on one side or the other. 22
  23. 23. • Attach the battery pack to your clothing or place it your pocket • This room is not very big and the instructor doesn’t really need a mic. The mic volume is intended to amplify the instructor’s voice for the distance students and overrides the boundary mics or for the recording. When students are speaking in the classroom they will only be heard if the instructor is not speaking. Only the two speakers in the back broadcast the lapel mic to help overcome the air conditioner noise. • The volume has already been optimized within the system. If you need to change the volume for any reason, touch the mic volume button first, then use the media volume controls. (ASK A STUDENT TO DO THIS.) Be careful not to press the MUTE button or it will turn off the sound altogether. 23
  24. 24. Summary/Transition As you can see, the mic is fairly easy to use. And in summary of this section, we know that we turn the projector on and off using the touch panel, we can control the camera using the presets and the pan, tilt and zoom arrows and we can control the microphone using the volume control on the touch panel as well. Any questions? 24
  25. 25. Part 4 – Using computers with the system Objectives Given the desktop computer, the student will be able to demonstrate how to turn on the desktop using the touch panel. Given a laptop computer, the student will be able to demonstrate how to plug a laptop into the system with 100% accuracy. Time required: 5 minutes; Prerequisites: Some knowledge of computers Materials needed: None Introduction It’s easy to use the desktop machine with this system. You just have to make sure that the computer has been turned on and that the touch panel is on computer interface. (ASK STUDENT TO PRESS) Discussion/Demonstration (next page) 25
  26. 26. Desktop machine The tower for the computer built into the system is housed inside the podium. When you first power up the system you will also turn on the desktop machine. The computer monitor is sitting on top of the podium and the keyboard and mouse are in the drawer (ASK THE STUDENT TO OPEN THE DRAWER). You use this machine much like you would any other Windows machine. USB Ports To use a USB drive with the desktop machine, you can plug the drive into the ports shown above and below. USB Port 26
  27. 27. Module II Passive (one way) Broadcasting 27
  28. 28. Introduction This unit will take about 20 minutes to complete. One of the unique features of this room is its ability to record class sessions. We can record on mini-DV tapes and DVDs or we can use the web conferencing software Breeze to record, stream and archive. Everything you use in the room – the camera, the mics, the computer, your laptop – can be recorded. This allows you to record everything that goes on in the room. You can also stream everything you do in the room because there are lines going to the IDT server. The computer in the system allows you to use Breeze as well to video conference with distance students. The diagram on page 23 of your Student Manual illustrates the recording process 28
  29. 29. 29
  30. 30. Part 5 – Streaming Objectives Given a verbal request, the student will be able to summarize the streaming process by stating the procedure for contacting the IDT department with 100% accuracy. Time required: 5 minutes; Prerequisites: none Materials needed: “The Recording Process” diagram Introduction Streaming is a passive way to broadcast a class session and allow your off-campus students to watch the class session in real time by clicking a link you give them. They cannot interact with you, but they can watch and hear what you and the class are doing. Your Student Manual has more information on streaming multimedia to read later. Discussion/Demonstration The data stream will be running off of the IDT server so in order to stream the session, the instructor must contact the IDT department at least 48 hours prior to the class session. Someone in IDT will give you a link to send to your students to watch. You can also archive this link – check with IDT on this as well. On the diagram labeled “The Recording Process,” notice the computer labeled IDT server. This is actually housed in Rick Van Eck’s office. That is why the IDT department needs to be contacted to stream. Remember, the phone number listed here next to the monitor is the number for CILT when you need technical help. This is NOT the phone number you call to stream a session. . 30
  31. 31. Part 6 - Recording to mini-DV tape Objectives Given a verbal request, the student will be able to demonstrate how to record a session by recording on mini-DV tape with 90% accuracy. Time required: 10 minutes; Prerequisites: none Materials needed: “The Recording Process” diagram, mini-DV tape, Student Manual Introduction This section is about recording to mini-DV tape. (SHOW THEM THE TAPES) Discussion/Demonstration Practice Ask the student to perform the steps as you walk them through each one. To record to mini-DV tapes, you must bring a tape with you. You can find mini-DV tapes and DVDs in the electronics department of such places as Wal-Mart, Target or you can ask your department to supply these materials. Make sure the indicator light is on DV by pressing the DV/HDD/DVD button until the green light shows DV. To record, insert the tape into the recorder. The recorder may begin to play the tape, so press stop to keep it from playing through. You can tell if it is playing by pressing “cam control” and waving your hand to see if you are being shown. Insert mini DV tape here Also make sure the channel is on Line 1 (it will read L-1) because the video is “fed” through Line 1 of the JVC recorder. If it is not on Line 1, press the channel button up or down to change it. If you cannot toggle between DV and DVD, turn the device off and back on again. 31
  32. 32. Channel LCD display buttons should read “L – 1” Next, press the record icon on the touch panel. Whatever you’re doing should show on the touch panel. If it does not show up, call the help desk. Wave to yourself to make sure you’re the video’s not playing back. Next you should see this screen… 32
  33. 33. At this screen you can control the functions of the recorder. To begin recording, press the record button (ASK STUDENT TO DO THIS). You’ll know it’s recording because a white circle and the phrase “12 bit” will show up on the screen briefly, as shown on page 27 of your Student Manual. Everything that you do on the system will be recorded. Also, a red RECORD light will come on when the device is recording. To stop recording, simply press the stop button on the touch panel (ASK THE STUDENT TO DO THIS). Eject the tape by pressing the eject button on the device. 33
  34. 34. Part 7 - Recording to DVD Introduction You may wish to record to a DVD instead of a mini-DV tape. Discussion/Demonstration To record to a DVD, insert a DVD-R or -RW, which are DVDs on which you can record. For this system, you MUST use the “minus” DVDs, NOT the “+” (see below). You can buy DVD-Rs at such places as Wal-Mart, Target, Office Max and Best Buy. Practice Ask students perform the following as you walk them through it. To record, insert the DVD into the recorder. Make sure the indicator light is on DVD by pressing the DV/HDD/DVD button until the green light shows DVD. DV/HDD/DVD button Insert DVD here 34
  35. 35. Also make sure the channel is on Line 1 because the video is “fed” through Line 1 of the JVC recorder. If it is not on Line 1, press the channel button up or down to change it. Channel LCD display buttons should read “L - 1” Next, go back to the touch panel and press the record icon. The next screen will be … 35
  36. 36. At this screen you can control the functions of the recorder. To begin recording, press the record button You will know it’s recording because this screen, which says recording index…. Also you will see a red RECORD light on the device while it is recording. To stop recording, simply press the stop button. It will prompt you to hit stop again - press ( □) again to stop recording. The next step is to finalize. 36
  37. 37. Finalizing a DVD In order to play the DVD that you have recorded on any other DVD player, you must FINALIZE the recording. Finalizing a disk makes it playable on a system other than the one it was recorded on. As a general rule, finalization means that the disc cannot have any more data written to it. Finalizing is the last step in the DVD authoring process. You CAN rewrite on DVD-RWs by unfinalizing and re-finalizing. Practice Please practice the steps on page 34 of your Student Manual on how to finalize a DVD. Provide guidance as needed. 37
  38. 38. Tips for finalizing • Make sure you have stopped the recording before you begin this process. • Use the remote for this entire process. • Make sure your point the remote at the unit rather than at the touch panel. • You may finalize at a later time as long as you do it on this machine. • If you time-out of the finalizing process, press Set Up again • If you forget to stop recording before you finalize, you must exit the finalizing process and start over. 1. On the remote, press DVD so that the DVD lamp lights up on the unit. 2. Press Set Up to access the Main Menu. The Main Menu will show up on the touch panel screen. 3. On the touch panel, press “Touch for Full Screen.” 4. Use the arrow keys on the remote to find highlight HDD/DVD/DV SET UP 5. Use the arrows to highlight DISC SET UP 6. Use the arrow keys to highlight FINALIZE then press ENTER. 7. The background selection screen will appear. Highlight the desired background, and then press ENTER. 8. The screen will say “Finalizing will make disk read-only. Start Finalizing.” Use the arrow keys to select OK and press ENTER on the remote. 9. The screen will say “Disc will be finalize. Will take about ___ min. Start to finalize?” Use the arrow keys to select OK and press ENTER on the remote. 10. After it finalizes, a “Record Preview” screen will show on the touch panel. Highlight OK and press ENTER on the remote. 11. Press SET UP to return to the normal screen. Menu screen is cleared. Your disc is finalized. You may eject. 38
