5 Classroom, Dorm Room and Workspace Essentials
It’s been almost a week since it happened…autumn, that is. Without warning the sun is setting earlier in the evening, temperatures are suddenly cooler and local coffee shops are crowded with Pumpkin Spice Lattés. Millions of Americans are coming back from summer vacation and returning to school, college or work. C2G has a few tips and tricks to get the most out of your workspace and make this the most productive season of the year!
Free the USB connectors on your PC and declutter your desk before you dive into your next assignment! Using a USB hub allows you to plug multiple USB devices into a hub instead of your PC. Simply connect all your USB devices to a hub, then plug your hub into a single USB connector on a PC. Instead of spending valuable time searching for an inconvenient USB port on the back of your PC, just plug your device directly into a USB hub situated in a convenient location on your desktop. When you are done using the USB devices simply unplug and store. It’s easy to use, inexpensive and will prevent devices from piling up in your workspace.
Being prepared for a meeting or presentation goes beyond just understanding the material. The way you present the information is just as important. Not having an adapter for your Chromebook, MacBook, Pixel, or USB-C device can be a disaster! New devices may not connect with legacy projectors or displays. Make sure you are always prepared to present your material with the essential adapters you need.
You probably need to access your cell phone while it’s charging. Power outlets are not always placed in convenient locations to accommodate this need. A typical phone charger may not be long enough to reach from the power outlet to your night stand, desktop or sofa. Using a USB extension cable adds an additional 6-40 feet of length to shorter USB cables. Use your cell phone while charging from virtually any location in your home or office.
HDMI cables in dorm rooms, offices and classroom are used every day. Whether you are connecting a PC to an HDTV or a tablet to a projector, daily use can damage the device and cable. Using an HDMI cable with griping capabilities adds three times greater port retention compared to standard HDMI cables. This additional stability in your cable will keep it from falling out of a device and add longevity to your device and cable.
Add functionality to a workspace with wireless projection capabilities. Share presentations, spreadsheets or videos from your PC to a projector or HDTV without the hassle of cables. This solution is ideal for sending an HDMI signal wirelessly in classrooms, huddle spaces and dorm rooms.
