Welcome to Classroom Media Support!

This site serves as a resource for UW Madison instructors who use the General Assignment Classrooms with Instructional Technology. The rooms included here are General Assignment Classrooms, meaning they are scheduled by Curricular Services (262-6345) but they are managed by the FP&M Space Management Office. There are many other Instructional Technology classrooms on campus that are departmentally controlled and are not included here or supported by the Classroom Media Support team. For a list of supported classrooms, visit the Classroom Attributes section.

AV Open Houses

At the start of each semester we have several AV open houses at various times across campus.  Please complete the online tutorial prior to attending the open house.  Feel free to attend any session of your choosing.

These open houses are designed to be informal. You may arrive and leave whenever you like within the scheduled time. We will be there to answer questions, demonstrate procedures, test laptops and media, and distribute keys.

Fall 2019 open houses are now scheduled. Please plan to attend one of these sessions.  If you cannot make any of these, please contact us directly for training needs.

Collaborative Learning Classrooms

We have created several collaborative learning classrooms utilizing an advanced media sytem, flexible seating and writing surfaces. These spaces allow instructors and students to interact in ways beyond traditional lecture teaching.

Before using a Collaborative Learning Classroom please take the CLC tutorial, you will learn how to use all of the unique features these classrooms provide.

Your Passcode may have changed!

Our new passcode database system requires ALL passcodes to be at least 6 digits long. The system automatically updated EVERY 4 or 5 digit log-in to 6 digits when it went live in the summer of 2014. PLEASE CHECK YOUR PASSCODE!

If you cannot remember your AV system passcode, or are unsure if you have a passcode, use this link. You will need your UW NetID.

VHS videotapes

VHS players have reached the end of their life-cycle. Most classrooms do not have a VHS player. Existing VHS players will not be replaced when they fail. We recommend that you transfer videotapes to digital video files (MP4s) or DVDs. We strongly advise instructors to convert all VHS tapes used in the classroom.
