This classroom is equipped with a unique feature—a rotating projector.  The projector can be displayed on one of two screens in the room, which the user specifies prior to turning the projector on.

  1. When you first access the system, you will see the following image.  On it, the small room view picture on the upper part of the screen will show how the projector is currently oriented, or which screen it will be projecting onto.
