Classroom Touchscreen Interface - Roux 207 N&S Presentation Mode

Roux 207 N&S is a flexible space that can be used in a variety of ways. This guide will focus on how to use the system in presentation mode. If you need guidance with Active Learning mode, please visit "this link"

This space has the ability to be used as two separate rooms, or one combined room. The touch panels change their control scheme based on the position of the air wall.


Splash Page

Depending on if you are in 207 North or South your splash page will look slightly different. 207 North uses a 15 inch in-wall touch panel, whereas in 207 South the instructor monitor doubles as your touch interface.


Splash Page North:


Splash Page South:

The screen can be tapped to start the system. The QR code in the bottom right will lead you to this instructional page if you scan it.


Lighting and Shades

The buttons to the left of the QR code will open the lighting and shades control pages.

Mode Select

After you tap the splash page to start the system, you will be prompted with a choice of mode. You can use this system in Presentation mode, or in Active Learning mode. This page will only go over what happens after you select Presentation Mode.



Starting Up

After you have selected your mode, you will be shown a page that looks like this, that will include a timer counting down the time you have left before you can use the system:


Main Page

Once the system has finished starting up and it ready to use, the main page will be displayed


The default source that will be selected will be the instructor computer. In addition to displaying from the projector, you will get a message in the center pane letting you know that you have selected instructor computer and that there are no controls for that device associated with the touch panel when you are in 207 North.



In 207 South, you will see a preview of your instructor computer on the touch interface:



Selecting a Source

The first thing you will notice is that your available sources are in a row starting at the top left of the screen.

When a source is selected, the button will be highlighted black, like you see in the image below. When a source is not selected, it will have a transparent background.

In 207 North you will have an extra source, which is the whiteboard functionality of the interactive projector:

Due to the presence of an interactive projector in this space, you have the choice of disabling your ability to use the interactive touch functionality of the fixed whiteboard/projector screen. Using whiteboard mode in conjunction with disabling touch will allow you to have a blank white image that you can use to write on with markers, without interfering or interacting with any of the controls on the screen. To regain your interactive ability, just tap the touch disabled button when it is red.


The Sources available for 207 South look like this:



Using the Blu-Ray Player

In both 207 North and South you will have access to a Blu-Ray player. Tap on the Blu-Ray icon

Here we see that because Blu-Ray is the selected source, your various Blu-Ray player controls appear in the center pane of the screen. The first thing you should do if the Blu-Ray player is not displaying on the screen is press the power button in the bottom right of the center pane. The arrow buttons on the left side of the screen allow you to navigate the menu, and the center circle button is the "OK" or "Enter" used to select menu options.  The back button will take you back one step, or close the pop-up menu.


Volume and Image mutes

Visible no matter what source you have selected, your volume slider is located in the center of the bottom pane. This is used to adjust your volume level by touch.

If you want to set your volume to zero, a quick way to do this would be with the volume mute button located to the left of the volume slider. Pressing this button once will stop the audio, and the button will turn red to indicate that you have muted the audio.


Let's draw our attention to the button to the left of the Volume Mute button. This is the Image Mute button. This button, when pressed, completely blanks out whatever is showing on the screen. In addition, it will also appear red when selected, just like the volume mute button.




Controlling the cameras

Depending on which space or mode you are in, you will either have access to North's 2 cameras, South's 2 cameras or all four cameras.


In North separate mode, you will see that you can select either camera for control:


In North Combine mode, you'll see you now can choose 4 different cameras to control.


When you are in South, the camera pages will operate exactly the same way. The only difference will be that you have a small preview of your camera on the monitor when you select it.

Help Page

The help page can be accessed by pressing the icon next to the power button. It includes a QR code that when scanned, brings you to this instructional page. It also includes the service desk line for classroom emergencies.


Shutting down the system

The power button is represented by a power symbol in the top right of the screen. When pressed, this button will provide you with a shutdown confirmation page. Where you can choose to shut down the system, or return to the previous page if you pressed it by mistake.


Shutdown Confirmation:

When you shut down the system, all technology in the classroom will shut down. The projector will turn off, and all video and audio will stop. This will all happen automatically and there is nothing more you need to do when you are done in a space other than pressing the "Yes, Shut Down" button.

Once the system shuts down, it will return to the splash page again after a brief display of the cool down page.
