Description

As part of our standard offering, all classrooms are equipped with built-in audio-visual technology. All classrooms have a minimum of a computer and a display device for display technology.

Eligibility

All Glendon faculty and staff can request the use of classroom technology using the GEO system. Students have access to this technology for course use and officially recognized Student Groups have access to this technology by making a request through Student Affairs. This technology is available for non-commercial use only.

How to request the service

  1. For regularly scheduled York courses: Built-in technology is made available to Professors and Teaching Assistants on a self-serve basis. They may request a demonstration of how to use classroom technology by going online to the Glendon Equipment Ordering (GEO) system (http://geo.yorku.ca).

While some exceptions do apply, built-in audio-visual technology is provided free of charge to all faculty and students provided that the equipment is required for a regularly scheduled York Course.  A regularly scheduled York course will be listed on the Registrar’s office website.  Built-in audio-visual technology is provided free of charge to officially recognized Student Organizations (some exceptions do apply). A small fee is charged for all other requests. Method of Payment: Payments can only made using a York University budget number.

Technology available in classrooms: Best Practices
  • Logging into classroom computers requires an active Passport York account. Please ensure before attempting to use the technology that you have an active, working Passport York account.
  • Since requests are processed on a first come first serve basis, it is highly recommended that orders are placed well in advance of an event.
