Most of our teaching spaces come with an in-room PC installed and ready to use. Instead of using your own laptop, you could save your work on a USB and upload it on the PC provided.
PCs are already connected to Monash AV systems and pre-configured to use any equipment that might be there (such as a Smart Podium digital inking device).

- All Mainstream and Premium lecture theatres
- Any lecture rooms and classrooms that have AV equipment installed
Breakout spaces don't have a PC.
- Mainstream or Premium lecture theatres will have the PC located on the front left side of the lectern just underneath the top surface
- Classrooms will have the PC in a white or beige cabinet in the front corner of the room
- The PC is secured inside this cabinet but the front panel of the PC is accessible through a hole in the cabinet (so you won't need to open the cabinet). Teachers will have access to the ON/OFF button, CD/DVD drive and USB slots
- In classrooms: When you select the PC on the control panel, the light beneath 'PC' on the panel will flash for a short time then go on to being constantly lit. When this happens the projector may seem to be on but you still won't be able to see the PC displaying. Try pushing the ON/OFF button briefly (just a quick push). If the PC is asleep, this should wake it up
- In lecture rooms and lecture theatres: select the Lectern PC on the control panel, then display it by touching a destination on the right side of the control panel (left, right or both displays). If it is being set to 'None', it won't display on the front wall. (You wouldn't need to push the ON/OFF button to wake up a PC in a lecture room or theatre)
The PC will include regularly used programs such as Microsoft Word, Excel, Powerpoint and other essential programs.
Your PC will have a few USB ports along with a CD or DVD drive.
