Frequently Asked Questions
How do I access my files from a ClassTech room?
Files saved to your Unity account may be accessed through the K:drive or the My Documents folder on the desktop after you have logged in. If you are part of CHASS, you can access your U:Drive through the following link: http://www2.chass.ncsu.edu/udrive.
What if the batteries in the microphone die or the bulb in the document camera blows?
In an effort to be more "green," including lowering support costs, ClassTech has moved to a rechargeable battery solution for classrooms. Each classroom with a microphone will also have a recharge station located in the same drawer that the microphone is kept in. Simply swap the microphone batteries with those in the charger, taking note of which direction the batteries are inserted in the charger. Our equipment is checked weekly; however, if you have problems, please call the NC State Help Desk at 919-515-HELP (4357) and we’ll send a consultant to resolve the issue.
What if I can't log in to the computer?
Call the Help Desk and report the problem. In most cases, this can be solved over the phone. Also note that there is a local account that can be used for guest users and in cases where the network is down. Simply use the following credentials:
- User Name: .\classtech
- Password: classtech
