Q: How do I know what technology is installed in my assigned classroom?

A: Go to answers.wheaton.edu and type in your classroom name (for example, BGC 532) and you can find what technology is installed there.

Q: How do I do dual modality teaching from a classroom?

A: You can use the classroom computer or your laptop to do dual modality teaching from a classroom.
