Vision allows instructors to control and communicate with all the student computers in a classroom. You can monitor them, chat with them, and block them from just the internet or from their computer entirely. Vision does NOT allow for the transfer of audio from one computer to another.
Headsets are available for all classroom and lab computers (except room G58 FLB). If you have trouble with the microphone, you may need to verify the computer audio settings are correct. These instructions may vary slightly or appear slightly different depending on the model of computer you are using.
- If there is a volume knob on the headphone cable, be sure it is turned up (towards the +).
- Make sure the headset is plugged into the FRONT of the computer, not the back (unless you are in G27, where there's only 1 place to plug in the headset).
ATLAS lab and classroom computers can be configured so that you can type in non-English languages. You will choose an input language and a keyboard layout. Students should talk to their instructors to find out the proper settings. Spelling and grammar check may be available as well, but we have found these tools to be somewhat faulty, so please don't rely solely on them.
