Some rooms on campus have supplied computers in the classroom. These are usually Windows computers that can be used for PowerPoint, clickers, and other apps. These computers are provided by the department. They may or may not be in Active Directory.

Using the Camera and Supplied Computer

Use the Classroom Supplied Computer to run a Zoom meeting using the in room microphone and camera. Note - logging onto the classroom supplied computer to Zoom will log you out of Zoom on your personal computer.

  1. Log onto the computer using your NetID and Password (or the computer may already be logged in for you with a local account).
  2. Launch Zoom
  3. Choose Sign in
  4. Select the Sign in with SSO option on the right.
  5. Type in Tennessee before the .zoom.us
  6. Select Continue
  7. Log in to Zoom with your NetID and Password
  8. Approve the Two-Factor Authentication
  9. Choose Launch Zoom
  10. Launch your meeting
  11. Choose Join with Computer Audio (you may want to select the checkbox to Automatically join audio by computer when joining a meeting as well)
  12. Turn on the lavalier (lapel-style) mic.
  13. Make sure you LOG OUT of Zoom when you leave - especially if you are on a department-controlled computer that does not use an Active Directory login. Otherwise, you will remain logged into Zoom (or any other app you use) and anyone using the computer can use your login.

Gooseneck microphone

Available in some classrooms on the podium, these bendable microphones allow a speaker to stand at the podium to be heard. Speakers who are soft-spoken may need to lean in towards the microphone in order to be heard better.

If a lavalier (lapel-style) microphone is available in the room, OIT recommends using that microphone if the speaker wishes to move away from the podium and around the room.


This room contains a departmentally-controlled Windows computer and monitor.
