The Remote-Capable Classroom (RCC) Service is a hybrid teaching model which allows for synchronous (real-time) and asynchronous (on-demand) lecture and presentation delivery. The RCC Service provides instructors with a simple technology solution, a Crestron Mercury X system, that enables the simultaneous delivery of lectures to students that are physically in the classroom as well as students working remotely.
Remote-Capable Classrooms are equipped with a simple AV control panel interface that includes a built-in microphone and speaker, an overhead-mounted video camera, a universal video adapter, and a network cable. Connect your computer to use any or all of these features while you teach.
All Remote-Capable Classrooms are equipped with the following features:
Please Note: OIT highly recommends plugging your device into the physical network for the highest quality video connection achievable.
There is no direct additional cost associated with the use of the RCC Service and associated equipment.
The RCC Service is available to Faculty on the CU Boulder campus in rooms equipped with a Crestron Mercury X system.
OIT is actively installing Crestron Mercury X systems in centrally scheduled classrooms and select departmental spaces. All Remote-Capable Classrooms will be listed on the Hybrid-Capable Classrooms List as they are confirmed and installed. Use the following resources to get started using this technology.
For detailed, step-by-step instructions, use the Quick Start Guides below to help connect to RCC technology. These instructions will also be posted in rooms equipped with RCC technology.
OIT has recorded several videos that demonstrate how to connect your laptop to a Crestron Mercury X in a Remote-Capable Classroom, while also seeing an example of the RCC service in action. Click the thumbnail photos below to watch each video.
OIT’s Learning Spaces Technology team provides support for Remote-Capable Classrooms, as well as defining, revisiting, and revising technology standards for teaching and learning spaces. LST also supports:
