FAQ

What is the ETRC?

 

The Educational Technology Review Center was established by the ETSU Clemmer College of Education to expand the use of technology in the classrooms of East Tennessee.

The staff of the ETRC identifies, acquires, evaluates, and assists in the implementation of educational technology of all types. They also provide technology assistance for projects undertaken by students, faculty and staff. By doing so, the ETRC provides support for the program of curricular change that moves the College forward.

Can I use a computer in the lab?

 

You are welcome to use a Mac or PC, but please remember to sign in when you enter the lab. You can even print or make copies if you have money on your ETSU account.

Why do I need to sign in?

 

By remembering to sign in on the computer when you enter the ETRC, you are helping us to determine what equipment to buy, what services to offer, and how to train our staff.

Is this where I can rent a video camera?

 

The ETRC loans video cameras to CCOE students, faculty and staff for educational projects only at no charge. You are responsible for replacing equipment that is lost, damaged or stolen during the time that you have it signed out.

My professor wants our assignment on DVD.  Can you do that?

 

Video files can be burned on a DVD just as the files to be played on a computer, or set up to play in a standard DVD player as well as a computer. Please check with your professor so you know which version they need and bring a DVD to the lab if you would like us to convert the files.

What do I do if I need to record a book or podcast?

 

There is a schedule beside the sign in computer in the lab. Add your name to the list and block out the time it will take you to record and edit (listen back through at least twice). If you are recording a podcast or story, please remember to bring your own CD or flash drive to save the audio/project files.

Please be on time for your appointment, and call if you are not going to be able to make it to the lab so we can list that time as available.

Can you do anything with a HI8 tape?

 

The ETRC does not have a Hi8 camera, but if you can bring us the camera and the tape, we can convert the tape to a digital format in most cases.
