Collaboration Stations

Plug in multiple laptops and work together on assignments requiring a computer, like presentations! If you need cables to connect, ask us.

Collaboration Station Policies:

  • First come, first serve.

  • Stations are for groups of 2 or more.

  • Students not using the station must give up the station to students that would like to use it.

 

 

Connecting a Laptop or Tablet to the Station:

To use the tables, first make sure the table is "on". You can do this by looking for the power button that is located on the media well in the center of the table. If the light is white, press the button once to activate the table and the light will become green.

You will need a VGA connection to your computer, or you may borrow one of our laptops.

 
  1. Laptops are connected to the tables using PUCKS. 
  2. Open the media well and remove a puck
  3. Connect the Puck to your laptop (The Puck will glow).
  4. Share what's on your laptop by pressing on the Puck. To disconnect your device, press the off button and disconnect the Puck.

Troubleshooting

When connecting to a media:scape table with a dual monitor setup, you may need to reduce your screen resolution in order for your computer to display correctly. If you encounter issues, please follow these steps:

* In the display settings for your computer, set the resolution to 1366 X 768 or lower.

* Adjust the refresh rate to 60hz
