For those who requested easels:
Your easels will be labeled. Please do not take easels from other classes. If you need additional easels, please visit the ITS Information Desk on the Main Level.
If possible, please arrive 5-10 minutes early to pick up your poster and foam board on Lower Level 1, in the Harte Center.
For those who requested projectors:
If possible, please arrive 15-30 minutes early to set up. The resident computer will be turned on and ready to go!
Someone who will be present for the duration of the Spring Term Festival should be the one to log on to the resident computer with their W&L credentials. Note that the screen will lock after 15 minutes of inactivity.
To play a loop of videos, we recommend using VLC Media Player and creating a playlist of videos.
- From the VLC Media Player’s main window, use the menu bar and navigate to View > Playlist or use the shortcut key Ctrl+L.
- Drag and drop your media files (.mp3, .mov, .avi, etc.) into the window to build your playlist.
- We suggest uploading all media files to a Box folder, then downloading the folder to the resident computer. To unzip the entire folder, right-click to select Extract All, and then follow the instructions. Depending on the size of the folder, it can take 5-10 minutes to download and unzip!
- When done, click the loop button ONCE (see below) to loop the playlist, then click the Play button.
The cold of winter has finally melted away and the advent of spring invites a new beginning!
