Pool classrooms are a set of classrooms that are shared by all academic departments.
Installed equipment is listed per room along with a link to instructions. You can also review our basic troubleshooting tips for all classrooms.
If you would like equipment that is not standard in your room, please reserve it ahead of time. Note that we require all setup requests to be submitted at least two business days in advance.
For additional information not included in the charts below, please refer to this document for seating style, board type, and other classroom layout information.

Web Conferencing Equipment
Hybrid classrooms include two webcameras (one facing the professor and one facing the students), a podium PC with Zoom installed, a document camera, ceiling microphones throughout the room, a lapel microphone for the professor and a separate input for a personal microphone, if desired.
Navigate through the accordions below to learn more about web conferencing equipped classrooms.
“Hybrid” refers to a web conferencing equipped classroom that enables students to either physically attend class meetings in the classroom or participate synchronously online. Virtual students can see the professor and their classmates, as well as ask questions and participate in discussion. Guest lecturers can visit the class virtually and interact synchronously with all of the students. Classes may be recorded for future viewing. Loyola’s hybrid classrooms include, in addition to standard presentation equipment, two webcameras (one facing the professor and one facing the students), a PC running Zoom, a document camera, ceiling microphones throughout the room, and a lapel microphone for the professor.
For Help with hybrid classroom equipment:
- As with all of our classroom equipment, instructions are provided in the rooms as well as online (see below).
- We have launched a Zoom Help Page on the Center for Faculty Innovation's website.
- We oversee Team Zoom, a group of knowledgeable faculty and staff available to provide assistance with using Zoom.
In every hybrid classroom, you will find a set of hybrid instructions, including the Hybrid Quick Guide, the Full Length Instructions, the room's Camera Instructions, Lapel Mic Instructions, and Hybrid Tips and Troubleshooting Instructions. Please follow each step of the instructions when setting up your hybrid class. You can download the instructions below:
Avoid Audio Feedback!
- Everyone in the room other than the professor on the podium PC must MUTE their mic and speakers; otherwise, very LOUD audio feedback will be heard.
Can't Hear Your Zoom Students?
- Make sure the audio output in Zoom (i.e. the speaker) is set to Crestron (Intel(R) Display Audio).
- Make sure the projector is turned on and the correct input selected (PC) via the control panel.
- Make sure the volume on both the podium control panel and the computer is turned up and not muted.
Zoom Students Can't Hear You?
- Make sure the audio input in Zoom (i.e. the microphone) is set to Line (TesiraFORTE).
- If using the lapel mic, make sure the transmitter is turned on.
Zoom Students Can't Hear Classroom Students?
- Follow steps above to confirm that audio is transmitting.
- Ask your classroom students to speak loudly and, if necessary, to move closer to a ceiling microphone (the mic should be in front of the student).
Lapel Mic Not Working?
- Make sure it is turned on. You will see a green light on the transmitter.
- If it doesn’t turn on, call Media Services to replace the batteries.
- Make sure the lapel mic is close to your face and pointed towards your mouth.
- Make sure the microphone input is set to Line (TesiraFORTE) in Zoom.
Camera Remote Not Working?
- Find the Camera Select buttons at the very top of the remote.
- Press either 1 or 2 to correspond to either CAM 1 or CAM 2 as you point the remote at the correct camera. This tells the remote which camera you are trying to control.
- Now you can zoom, pan, tilt or select a preset.
Don't Forget to Log Out of Zoom!
- When your class is over, don’t forget to log out of your Zoom account on the Zoom desktop client on the shared classroom PC. Do this by clicking your profile picture in the top right corner and selecting Sign Out from the drop down menu.
Lavalier or Lapel Microphone Suggestions for hybrid classrooms:
For faculty members who wish to purchase their own lapel mic to use in their hybrid classes, we recommend one of the following wireless mics with suggestions as to where to purchase them. If you want a different mic, or already have one, please note important connection information below.
- Samson Concert 88
- Samson XPDm
- Shure BLX14/CVL
Note: The microphone receiver must have an XLR output and an adaptor cable that will go from XLR Female to Male 3.5mm TRS. Here is an example of the adaptor cable.
Web Conferencing Kits:
Media Services also has a limited number of portable web conferencing kits for loan. For more information on these, see the Web Conferencing tab on our Portable Equipment page or contact Media Services at email@example.com. You can reserve a kit through the Equipment Request Form.
These kits include a Logitech Webcam, Lumens Document Camera, Jabra Speaker/Microphone, Tripod, and USB Hub (the USB hub is provided in case you need additional inputs). You will need a laptop or desktop computer along with this kit. If you do not have one, please request a PC Laptop separately.
For instructions on how to use the kits, you can download them here. These instructions are for Zoom conferences, but you can use any web conferencing software with this equipment.
