Audio/Visual Equipment and Supplies
Where to find equipment
General Departmental (and ELI) equipment and materials are stored in Moore 473, including:
- DVD player (and cart)
- video recordings of old brown-bag lectures and other items of SLS interest
- CD players
- microphones of various types
- video cameras
- transcribers (with foot pedals and headsets)
- a few items of legacy technology, such as overhead projectors
Equipment stored in the office of the ELI Jr. Specialist (Moore 472) is:
- digital (video and still) cameras and audiorecorders
Priorities for use
Equipment and materials may be reserved and checked out under the following priorities:
1st—scheduled classroom use (SLS, ELI, and HELP classes)
(NOTE: HELP also has some equipment of its own)
2nd—faculty research projects
3rd—student projects (approved by regular faculty members or the department chair)
4th—in some special circumstances, non-SLS faculty members or students
Reserving and borrowing procedures
Contact the ELI Jr. Specialist in person in Moore 472, by email (email@example.com) or phone (956-2801).
- Digital Video Camera: The department has two digital video cameras and one regular digital camera. Because we only have a few, and because of their value, they should be used only for official purposes (e.g., classroom, research use). The digital cameras are kept in the office of the ELI Jr. Specialist, Ms. Priscilla Faucette (Moore 472). Make arrangements with her to check it out.
To access Moore 473, you must know the code to enter the room. Most SLS faculty members and many students know this code. Please reserve, take out and return the equipment on your own.
If you need any equipment outside of normal hours, it is all right to borrow it overnight (or over the weekend) and return it the next working day. However, it will be the borrower’s responsibility to ensure that the equipment is kept in a safe place (e.g., behind locked doors in your office or at your home), and to return it at your earliest opportunity.
A few reminders
Naturally, it is best if you reserve equipment well in advance to ensure that it is available. Please return items promptly after you are finished with them (particularly items which are few in number, such as video cameras and transcribers) so that others can get them in plenty of time. Also, please return items to the proper shelves, so that they are easy to find. Finally, if you notice anything wrong with a piece of equipment, please inform the ELI Jr. Specialist (including what it is that doesn’t work properly—e.g., “the fast forward doesn’t work”).
Language and Technology Center (Moore 256)
The Language Learning Center (http://mcl.lll.hawaii.edu/llc/) also has a great deal of check-out equipment for classroom use, including audio recorders/players, CD players, TV/VCR sets on carts (two with closed caption feature), DVD players (one that is multi-region), a portable video projector with attached speaker and VCR (for use in classrooms that have projection screens), projectors, and some language research oriented equipment and legacy technology.
Faculty Development Lab (Moore 161)
The Faculty Development Lab has Windows and Mac computers, a scanner, and other equipment or software for faculty and GA use. For more information, contact the lab assistants in Moore 160 or Moore 161.

CIS provides a variety of services, including consultations with faculty or GAs about effective ways of using technology, providing instructional equipment, and developing instructional materials. Their website has a wealth of information about the different kinds of equipment that is available, either in specific classrooms or in equipment pools.
