Troubleshooting the wireless headsets in the TV viewing area

  1. For lack of small group work areas, the 3 headsets help sharing the LRCROOMCOED433. They amplify the sound for the TV viewing audience, allowing to turn the TV volume down so as not to disturb other users in the shared area.
  2. No sound?
    1. headsets turned on?
    2. headset volume turned up?
    3. headsets batteries dead?
    4. transmitter turned on?
  3. Static noise on headsets?
    1. headsets batteries weak?
    2. no line of sight to transmitter?
  4. Other things you can try:
      1. a different headset. We have 3.
      2. a different transmitter. We have 2.
  5. An image says more than 1000 words:

2011/10/13 1 comment

Sneak preview (larger view here) of the searchable online database with internet background information lookup (Note: work in progress, hard-“head” area!):

Friends of the UNCC-LRC can open this link in Excel-web-app (in your web browser, internet explorer or Firefox): https://skydrive.live.com/edit.aspx?cid=0025C841818181C2&resid=25C841818181C2%21164

More than one LRC assistant can edit the sheet at the same time, just not the same cell. so: if there is more than 1 lab assistant on duty, the one whose first name is closer to the end of the alphabet starts from the bottom row of the spreadsheet and works her way up

Click on the link “try UPC lookup”,

On the page that opens, if there is a picture of the movie with “buy from amazon”, right click on the link to amazon.com, select “copy shortcut”, and paste the shortcut into the column “buy from amazon”

Find the original movie title on the page, copy it into spreadsheet  column “UPC title original”,

If there is title English translation, copy it into “UPC title English translation”

Click on link “try worldcat”,  do the same as above with the spreadsheet columns “ISBN title original” and “translation”,

Languages & Culture Studies Film Collection: Pivot Table and Labeling System

We analyzed the film collection for diversity and media, by setting up a pivot table (the underlying spreadsheet is getting updated currently, but is current enough for an overview), snapshot:

film-collection-pivot

You can make your own analysis at S:\plagwitz\labconfig\spreadsheets\film-collection\film-collection.xlsx. (temporary location).  The sheet also contains the new labeling system to facilitate locating videos:
