How to find out whether you have access to your classroom early (e.g. for setup tasks), by using the R25 calendar
- Go to http://calendar.uncc.edu/, and follow these steps:
- (1) switch to view by “locations” instead of (the default) “events”,
- (2) select your building,
- (3) find your classroom,
- (4) see whether it is blocked=booked before your class (hover over the block to see by what) –
- in order to browse to your classroom’s schedule – for example, you could also just (5) search for your classroom.
- Sorry, unlike in the LRC calendars from MS-Exchange, here

- Update: I recommend now screenshotcaptor instead, if you do screenshot projects more than occasionally. MS-Paint (or pretty much any image editor) to mark up your images
- IrfanView to batch convert to GIF:
- UnFreez to easily create animated GIFs in differing speeds: , which can be automated.
