- Data projector
Most electronic classrooms on campus are equipped with a data projector. The data projector allows users to display content such as videos, documents and webpages. It is through the data projector that PowerPoint presentations, YouTube videos, DVDs and other media files can be displayed on the projection screen.
The HDMI cable allows for an audio and video connection between two devices such as the classroom computer and a laptop. HDMI stands for High-Definition Multimedia Interface, and is most commonly used for newer computer models. The HMDI cable is available through CTS for loans, and will gradually replace VGA cable use.
A hotkey is a keyboard short cut that allows quick access and functionality to programs or processes.
For example, Ctrl and C is the hotkey for the “copy” function, and Ctrl and V is the hotkey for the “paste” function.

- SMART Sympodiums and touch monitors
Several rooms have been equipped with interactive desktop monitors that allow you to annotate your PowerPoint slides, PDF files, web pages and other PC documents. Use our My Classroom page to find out if your room is equipped.
SMART Sympodiums often require calibrating the stylus pen in order to properly track the mouse cursor. Log in to the classroom computer to initiate the SMART software then review our document on how to perform this calibration.
Viewsonic or Dell touch monitors do not require any calibration.
The VGA cable allows for a video connection between two devices such as the classroom computer and a laptop. VGA stands for video graphics array, and is most commonly used for older computer models. The VGA cable is still available through CTS for loans, but will be slowly phased out in favour of HDMI cables.
- VLC Media Player
