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 Amanda Pruitt, assistant to the director of the Honors Program, at 706-542-0532 or email@example.com to request a reservation.
The computer lab is typically open from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. every day the university is open. During the fall and spring semesters, the lab remains open until 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday on class days.

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 or DVDs 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, share this information with them well in advance. This is the best way to ensure that classroom presentations run smoothly.
