How do I use the push button controls inside classrooms at BGSU?


Using the Button-Based Controls

  1. Locate the button controls on the wall.
  2. If the projector is OFFpress the ON button at the top of the panel. It should turn white
    • While in use, you can mute the projector temporarily by pressing the mute button on the bottom of the panel. It should turn red.
    • If the ON button is already white but the projector appears OFF, try pressing the mute button.
  3. To use your own laptop, plug your laptop in using the HDMI connection on the instructor's desk and select the HDMI button on the button panel. 
    1. If the HDMI button is already glowing white, you just need to connect your device.
    2. To switch back to the PC in the room, select the PC button. 
  4. To change the volume in the room, adjust the volume on the computer inside the room.
  5. When you are finished, press the OFF button to turn the projector OFF. It should turn red.
