Polycom/Zoom/Distance Learning:
CeLTA has 2 portable carts equipped with Polycom units, featuring HD cameras, room-capable microphones, and full remote control over the camera. While the units are frequently in use for scheduled courses, if you would like to request one for a Zoom meeting, or just see how it might help you in your meetings/classes, please contact celtalab@msu.edu with the reservation/demo request. 


B125 lab: 
28 + 10 Macintosh computers equipped with quality headsets and microphones. 1 full Tech Cart with instructor iMac, Document Camera, and laptop connection. A sound-proof divider can be taken down between the back portion (10 seats) of computers to expand B125 to 38 seats if your class/project is larger than 28.


B129 lab: 
14 + 16 Macintosh computers equipped with quality headsets and microphones. 1 full Tech Cart with instructor iMac, Document Camera, and laptop connection. The front part of the lab is available for student walk-in use. A sound-proof divider partitions the room and allows smaller classes to use the back portion (14 seats) for classroom instruction.


Recording studio:
 CeLTA labs include a professional-quality recording studio. Audio is recorded directly to a computer using a digital interface. Digital audio can be burned to CD or DVD or streamed from the web. This facility is available for sponsored use only. To request recording studio access, please contact Daniel Trego (tregodan@msu.edu).
