Collaboration Stations

Students sitting at collaboration stationHow Collaboration Stations Work:

 

Plug in multiple laptops at a table 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.

  • If you are sitting at the station, but not using it, you must give up the space to students who would like to use the station.


How to Connect a Laptop or Tablet to the Station:

To use the tables, 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, which is available for loan from the front desk in the library.

  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.
