Connecting a Notebook or Tablet (Wired)

If you want to connect your notebook or tablet to the classroom audiovisual system, use the cables located at the lectern or credenza location by the system control interface.

The most common connection type is "HDMI", but connection types may vary from room to room. Learn more about common display interfaces.


If your computer does not have HDMI or the connection type provided in the classroom, you may need a video adapter (also known by their technical term: "dongle").

Please work with Dartmouth's Computer Store to find the right adapter for your computer.

Display Options

When you connect to a display or projector through an AV system, you can have your laptop displayed in two ways: Mirrored or Extended Desktop/Separate Display.


Mirrored mode will show the same content from your laptop or mobile device on the classroom display. This is our recommendation as it reduces the complication of finding your cursor and switching between screens.

Extended Desktop/Separate Display

Extended Desktop (or Separate Display) will keep the two screens separate so different content can be shown on each display. This is helpful if you want to show individual applications without showing your whole desktop.
