The CER maintains a small multimedia lab/studio with audio, video, and scanning workstations. We also provide audio, video, and computer equipment for checkout. This equipment is available for KSAS/WSE faculty for instruction related projects. To ensure availability, technical support, and training, faculty must reserve equipment and lab/studio space by using our reservation system, which requires a JHED ID. There are no pre-set time limits for equipment, but each request will have to be approved before it is final. There are detailed instructions on the reservation site, but keep the following in mind:

  • When a request is first submitted, it is pending. The request must be approved before it is final.
  • You will receive two emails - one when you initiate the request and one when it is approved or denied.
  • Although there are no pre-set time limits, unreasonable requests will be rejected. These are shared resources.
  • The Multimedia Lab/Studio is available from 9-5 weekdays unless other arrangements are made.
 
 
 
The following are some of the resources available for reserving:
Audio recorders Clicker cases
Desktop or Studio time Laptop cart for class
Laptops Microphones
Presenter remotes Projectors
Portable speakers Still cameras
Tablet computers Video cameras
Webcams Writing devices

 

If you have any questions or problems, please contact cerweb@jhu.edu.

CER Faculty Multimedia Lab/Equipment Guidelines

  • Our equipment and the multimedia lab/studio is intended for faculty in the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences and Whiting School of Engineering Faculty in support of instruction. Other use must be on behalf of a faculty member or related to a CER sponsored project.
  • All equipment reservations and time in the lab/studio must be recorded on the reservation system.
  • Walk-In checkout or use of non-reserved equipment is possible but not guaranteed. Such use must be recorded in the reservation system.
  • Each summer, we reinventory our equipment and require that all outstanding reservations to be returned at some point during the summer. This is to ensure equipment is in working order for the school year.
  • The equipment cannot be used for any illegal activities. Use of the our resources is subject to JHU computing policies.
  • Use of the equipment must respect intellectual property laws. Duplication of copyrighted material is prohibited unless it complies with fair use. CER staff can advise on fair use issues, but the determination of copyright compliance is ultimately the responsibility of the faculty member using the equipment.
  • Hard drive-based storage is provided on a temporary basis. The hard drives in the lab are not backed up and should not be used for long term storage. Be aware that file storage on lab hard drives is shared by multiple users.
  • The CER is not responsible for the loss of data due to hardware failure, software issues, maintenance, or use by others. The Center takes precautions to minimize these problems; however, data loss can occur. It is recommended that users save their data on a flash drive, optical drive (CD/DVD), or using cloud storage.
  • Do not install software on our computers without consulting with a CER staff member.
  • Please consult a CER staff member when problems occur in the lab/studio.
  • No eating, drinking, smoking, or chewing tobacco permitted in the lab/studio.
  • Please do not display images, sounds, or messages that could create an atmosphere of discomfort or harassment to others in the lab.
  • When listening to audio, please use headphones to avoid disturbing others.
