  • Each CLC pod has a large flat screen monitor. Each pod is equipped with one VGA and one HDMI pullout cable for connection to a laptop which can be viewed on the pod monitor and, if desired, on all the other monitors and/or the ceiling projector. There is one wired internet pullout cable at each pod, multiple table top electrical outlets and wireless capability in all classrooms.

Otherwise, please visit: http://www2.fpm.wisc.edu/support/Tutorial/00100_introduction.html and complete the on-line tutorial to obtain a passcode and key.
