Multimedia Classrooms: LSU Overview
Classrooms are requested through the Registrar's Office and are funded by the LSU Student Technology Fee. Student Technology Assistants check the classrooms on an average of 3 times per week to check out the proper operation of the installed equipment. Issues are fixed or reported to Multimedia Classroom Support for immediate repairs or replacements before the start of the next scheduled classes. In addition to weekly maintenance, all classrooms are checked during semester breaks for necessary replacements and improvements.
