Moore College Instructional Technology
Moore College facilities include a computer lab, four general classrooms with Level III technology and several seminar rooms. All of these facilities are open to the university community and are wheelchair accessible. Faculty interested in scheduling a class in one of the rooms should contact the Sectioning Officer for their unit. With advance reservations, faculty may also bring students into the computer lab for a portion of a class period.
The Honors Program operates a computer lab in Room 310 of Moore College. While some of the lab computers are occasionally reserved for use by Honors students (for post-advisement registration sessions and Honors 1000H classes), the lab is generally available for use by any UGA student. Faculty interested in conducting a portion of a class in the computer lab may contact the Assistant to the Director of Honors to request a reservation.
The computer lab is typically open from 9am until 5pm every day the university is open. During the fall and spring semesters, the lab remains open until 9pm Monday through Thursday on class days.
In the computer lab, students have access to personal computers running the Windows XP Professional operating system, pay-for-print services, a flatbed scanner and an accessibility workstation. The following standard set of software is provided on all lab computers:
Instructors who plan to use audio-visual equipment in rooms 102, 202, 302, or 309 Moore College should consider obtaining a cabinet key from the Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) prior to the start of the semester. CTL is located in the plaza between the Psychology and Journalism buildings. Request an AV cabinet key for the appropriate classroom in Moore College. While some equipment can be operated without opening the cabinet, it is always necessary to have a key if you are loading CDs, DVDs, or VCR tapes into equipment housed in the cabinet. It is also helpful to have a key if problems arise.
Please review the following points about using computers in Moore College classrooms if you plan to be making computer-based presentations. Also, if your students will be expected to make presentations, please share this information with them well in advance. This is the best way to ensure that classroom presentations run smoothly. For further information about using the audio-visual equipment in classrooms 102, 202, and 302, please see this document provided by CTL.
Using Provided Desktop Computers
Classrooms 102, 202, and 302 have desktop computers. By spring semester 2010, classroom 309 should also have a desktop computer.
All provided desktop computers run the Windows XP Professional operating system and have access to the internet.
The software installed on these computers includes Microsoft Office 2003 and the Office 2007 compatibility pack, Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer, common helper applications for browsers, such as Acrobat Reader, and F-Secure Antivirus software.
Connecting laptops to the projector
The projectors in classrooms 102, 202, 302, and 309 have VGA connectors for Windows-based laptop computers.
To connect a Macintosh laptop to the projector, you must provide your own VGA adapter. Be sure to have the correct connector for your Macintosh model. There are several variations.
Connecting laptops to the internet
Wireless access to UGA's PAWS network is available in all Moore College classrooms. If internet connectivity is needed for a laptop that doesn't have a PAWS-compatible wireless networking card, it will be necessary for the user to request registration of the laptop's network card for use in Moore College. Please allow at least a week for the registration process.
To begin the registration process, please send the following information to the Assistant to the Director of the Honors Program:
Your IT specialist can help you determine the laptop’s MAC address. On a Windows-based PC, here is one way to obtain the MAC address for the ethernet card:
Go to the Start menu, choose "RUN" on the right side of the pop up menu, type in
and press the enter key. Scroll down (or up) until you see "Physical Address" under a description that includes the word "Ethernet" (rather than wireless or firewire, etc). That is the hexadecimal number that is also called the MAC, or physical address. It is comprised of six pairs of alphanumeric characters separated by dashes. Only letters from A through F and numbers should be included.
Scheduling Tutorial or Trial-Run Sessions
Honors Program staff are available to provide equipment use tutorials and help you test your presentations prior to class. Please contact the Assistant to the Director of the Honors Program to schedule a meeting time.
Getting On-site Assistance
If you need assistance with equipment while you are in the classroom, please notify the person on duty at the front desk in the lobby of Moore College.
