Lecture hall computers

Some lecture halls on the campus of the University of Mannheim are equipped with a computer. For an overview of these lecture halls, please also refer to the table Multimedia equipment in lecture halls (PDF)

To make things easier for the users, the computers in the lecture halls have a standard equipment. The equipment is the same in each room.

Currently, all lecture hall computers have Microsoft Windows 10 LTSC as operating system. In addition, the following programs are installed: Adobe Acrobat Reader DC, ImageGlass, Microsoft Edge, Microsoft Office Plus 2019, Microsoft Teams, Mozilla Firefox, VLC Media Player and Zoom.

After you have logged off, the desktop of the lecture hall computer will return to the standard setting. If you have stored data on the computer, you need to store these data beforehand on an external device (e.g. USB stick). After you have logged off or the computer is re-started, the profile is resetted and the stored data will be deleted.

USB port
Each desk has an external USB port. Please use the USB ports of the lecture hall computer, if your USB device is not recognized.
