LEARNING ENVIRONMENTS

USC Information Technology Services (ITS) and its Learning Environments group support the audiovisual technology in 192 general-assignment classrooms, 23 auditoria, and 3 ITS-managed computing centers, including 4 instructional computer classrooms within those computing centers.

The Room Finder can assist you in finding a general-use space with the capacity and technology you need for your course. It can also show you what type of equipment is available in any general-use space where you are scheduled to teach.

The list of compatible devices will let you know if your device will work with our AV equipment, and whether you might need an adapter to connect.

Learning Environments supports faculty members needing assistance in the use of audiovisual equipment in their classrooms. Contact ITS Learning Environments Support.
