Guide to General Use Classrooms

CIS endeavors to make technology enriched learning environments convenient and available campuswide for Manoa faculty. To facilitate this goal, CIS created this "Guide" to provide physical and technical information about classrooms and auditoria available for general instructional use on the Manoa campus. Information on over 164 general-use classrooms and auditoria is provided in this section. Indices have been provided below. Each classroom file includes a physical description, environmental conditions (air-conditioning, lighting, etc.), a listing of all permanently installed media equipment, and several photos of the classroom.
