Process for Requesting New Smart Clasroom

  1. The process for requesting a new smart classroom begins with the Smart Classroom Request Form which can be downloaded from this web page. This form is to be signed by the requester(s) and the division dean which confirms the availability of funding for the project.
  2. A meeting will be scheduled for the requester(s) to meet with the smart classroom project management team to discuss the equipment and budget details of the requested installation, installation priority, and possible installation dates. The team will examine the selected classroom to determine the room's readiness for installation.
  3. Equipment purchasing information will be provided to the requester(s) and the clerical staff of the requesting division will prepare and process the requisitions to purchase the smart classroom equipment. The team will create a prioritized list of requested smart classrooms.
  4. Once the equipment is purchased, the team will meet with facilities and computing services to schedule and finalize installation details.
  5. The requester(s) and division dean will be routinely informed of the progress of the project up to the point of project completion.
  6. As new smart classrooms are completed, the classroom scheduler will be notified to add this information to the classroom inventory database.
