Classroom Technology Support

Providing technical assistance with installed and portable equipment  in classrooms.


Classroom Technology Support (CTS) provides technical assistance using installed and portable equipment in classrooms supported by Information Technology Services at the Main, Ambler, Center City, and Fort Washington campuses. Services include:

  • Provide assistance using equipment in classrooms for credit, non-credit courses and special events.
  • Addressing issues in smart classrooms.
  • Scheduling a one-on-one consultation on how to use equipment in classrooms.
  • Requesting additional equipment to be delivered to classrooms.


Anyone who teaches a class or leads an event scheduled in a classroom supported by Computer Service during regular hours of operation.   

Note: Service may be available after regular hours for $40/hour as outlined on the Rates page. Because of security, liability, transportation, and other issues, equipment and/or support services can only be provided for events held on a Temple University campus.

Classroom Technology Support may provide service for events scheduled outside the normal supported locations and hours if staff and equipment are available.


Information Technology Services does not support all smart classrooms. Dedicated IT support staff in some Schools, Colleges, and Departments may provide smart classroom support. Additional information is available below under Supported Locations & Hours.

Note: Scheduling of classroom/event space is handled by schedulers within schools, colleges and campus departments.

Document Cameras

Often described as modern versions of old overhead projectors, document cameras are especially designed to project images of documents and objects. In the classrooms, the document camera is connected to the projector and students are able to view projected items on the wall screen. For students who are attending a class that is simulcast via Zoom, projected items will be displayed on their device screen.

For more information, please see Learn the Tool: Using a Document Camera.
