Faculty - new instructions for Teaching Station Jr (classroom projectors) this year

YouTubePlease consult our OISE 1-page guide for setup instructions: 2015_HowTo_TeachingStationJr.pdf

How to turn on the Audio Visual System in most classrooms:

  1. Connect the network cable attached to Teaching Station Junior to your computer
  2. Your computer will ask you to enter your UTORid to connect to the network*
  3. Enter your UTORid username and password. Once you have logged in successfully, the A/V system will turn on.
    To use the projector, please ensure the VGA of HDMI cable (if equipped) is connected to your laptop.
  4. If you require assistance, please press the Tech Help button on the teaching station. This will connect you to a live support representative who can enable the system remotely or send a technician to your room to assist.

*If you are using a non-OISE supplied Windows/PC computer, you will need to do a one time update to be able to log-in. You can do so by downloading and running the automatic update file found here: http://uoft.me/oise-tsjr-setup-tool

If your laptop does not have a wired network connector you can use an external adapter
(not supplied in the room) or request that ACE to automatically enable the “Teaching Station Junior”
system in your classroom for each class. For more info please see:

If you experience any difficulties trying to configure your laptop, consult the UofT Teaching Station Jr Handbook: http://sites.utoronto.ca/teachingstation/tsj/handbook.html
