      Hello all,

      The effect of COVID-19 has hasten our move to Bring Your Own Device (BYOD). I was wondering if your college has guidelines or standards on how many outlets  you will put in a classroom, lab or common areas ?

      What would be a good ratio students vs. outlets ? How many is enough ? 50%, 33%, 2, etc. I have been told that some of our students get very concerned during exam time and want to plug in for the duration.

      Thank you for letting me know,

      Hello Lan,

      I think we are all going through the same exercise. Just a thought, maybe use the child proofing outlet inserts every 6 feet? Advise students to use 6ft or greater power cords and Ethernet cables…just a thought.
