CSULB Classroom Technology Quick Guide

Most CSULB classrooms have a "Smart Panel" or "Smart Box" that includes a DVD and/or VCR player and connection to a data projector. Most classrooms DO NOT have computers to connect to the data projector. Faculty wishing to project from a computer need to bring a notebook or laptop with a VGA connection and a VGA male/male connection cable (Please note: Apple products require an additional adapter). Select this link for instructions on how to connect to smart panels and boxes as well as additional classroom technology.
