Hello Faculty,

There has been a lot of work done over the Summer to get ready for this Fall. In May, and June items were ordered to test and demo in search of solutions. Then equipment was ordered with installations starting in late-July. Over 50 classrooms and instructional spaces now have web cameras and microphones installed, making the room Zoom capable. IT will be updating this webpage (URL) through the next few months to reflect the status of the Classroom Zoom Project. Save the URL or search ‘Zoom Project’ on the Fort to track the status of your classroom. We will also try to post issues that arise with rooms, that will take a couple of days to fix.

**Update 10/6** Combining voice amplification and Zoom audio into 1 Microphone or Mic input. This is a big goal for us and we are exploring different solutions.

If you have questions about the use of this new technology, Teaching and Learning Services is training Faculty liaisons in many departments to help answer your questions. The Help Desk has not had a chance to get training on these rooms and is short staffed. Connecting with your peers will be a large component of adapting to this Semester.

Below is the status report from IT as of 10/6:

Green = Install Completed
Yellow = Waiting on Equipment
Orange = In Progress
Red = Difficult Install Last Priority
