Save Time!

1. Check to make sure your cables are all firmly plugged in. Although we do regularly replace the community use cables in classrooms, they can become worn and not fit as tightly as they should. Our classroom support technicians report that most interruptions to classtime due to technical issues are the result of a loose cable connection.

2. Try restarting your system. Most devices come with self-diagnostic software, and restarting the device (laptop, tablet, smart phone) tells it to give itself a quick checkup.
