Can I call IT to come and give me training in a tech classroom during the class change just before my class begins?

This is NOT recommended. While our support technicians might be able to quickly demonstrate one or two functions of the technology classroom during this time frame, the hurried pace of the session combined with students entering and exiting the room, asking questions of the instructor, etc. is not conducive to an effective teaching/learning environment. We encourage technology classroom users to schedule training before the start of classes, when a more leisurely pace can be observed, interruptions are fewer, and there is plenty of time for questions to be asked and answered during the training session.
