How LRC assistants now help maintain LRC functionality with routine checks

Oral assessments have begun this week in the LRC. Please note that when using the LRC you may see LRC assistants going through the rooms doing a variety of chores (if need be, we can remind them that they must not disturb classes and other user activities).

 

We have written a large number of procedural guides, check lists with spreadsheets and illustrated parts lists (linked below)  to train 7 groups of experts (varying in size between 2-6) in how to regularly inventory, test and maintain functionality of LRC equipment and services:

 

1.       Daily LRC walkthrough check

2.       Weekly headset test

3.       Weekly film equipment check

4.       Weekly staff and equipment calendar check

5.       Biweekly faculty equipment check

6.       Film collection maintenance (work in progress)

7.       Help desk supervising

Samples of issues that we hope to address this way:

a.       You check out a headset for recording learning materials over the last weekend before classes start and do not want to find it  broken.

b.      Your students come to the LRC for a quiz assignment/distance education  and in the middle of it find the headset does not play audio while the timer/class is running.

c.       You hold a recording class in the LRC and do not want to spend the first several more minutes – after the computers logged in – troubleshooting individual headsets that do not play or record.

d.      Your students, when setting up film equipment for  a film project (with location, actors/interviewees scheduled) have to find that the lights cannot stand essential since screws are missing.

e.      Films cannot be located.

f.        Etc.

 

I hope you will find experiencing fewer such issues a simplification in your interactions with the LRC .
