Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I get a key for the audio/mic drawer?

Keys can be checked out for the semester at the Registrar's Main Office inĀ 1 Jessup Hall.

Can I annotate/draw over my presentation?

Most TILE classrooms have the SMART Podium as their desktop monitor. Click the pen icon in the hideaway toolbar to activate annotate.

What is the food policy for a TILE classroom?

Due to the amount of technical equipment, we strongly request that there is no food or beverage in the TILE classroom.

Where do I get additional dry erase markers?

The Registrar's Office is in charge of replenishing the TILE classrooms with dry erase markers. If you notice the markers are running dry or in shortage, please contact the Registrar's office to request more. It is good practice for instructors to bring along their own markers to the TILE classroom as a backup.

How can an instructor book a course in the TILE classroom?

Once an instructor has complete TILE Labs: Essentials Training, they will be eligible to submit a request for a TILE classroom through MAUI. A request for a TILE classroom is the same as any other General Assignment Classroom. TILE Essentials are offered three times a year- March, June & October. Many instructors plan to teach in a TILE classroom a year in advanced, allowing them ample time to transform their teaching to take advantage of the TILE space. With that in mind, if you are considering to teach in a TILE classroom, we encourage you to reach out to us early at tile@uiowa.edu.
