How can I get support for using Catchbox mics?

If your course is scheduled in one of the listed rooms, there is an AV tech who will be there to help you with this and other AV issues in the room. We recommend that you discuss and practice using the mic beforehand. If you would like to set up an appointment with them ahead of time, please contact the ISS Technical Assistance Group via email at or call 734-615-0100.

If you would like help with looking for creative and engaging ways to use the Catchbox during instruction, please contact the ISS Learning Technologies and Consultation Group via email at or by phone at 734-615-0099 to set up an appointment.

Can I check out a Catchbox for use in a specific room?


The mics used in a Catchbox must be configured to run specificially with the receivers in the room where they are assigned. Unfortunately, it is not easy to reconfigured them, so they have to stay in the room for which they are configured.


Can I use a Catchbox in a different room?

The mics require a more substantial audio system, which at this point are only in the larger auditoriums.

Can I use this with other technology?

Catchbox uses a wireless mic, simliar to the ones you might wear during a lecture or presentation. This doesn’t impact your computer, wireless connections, or your presentation directly. It can be used in conjunction with i>clicker, any presentation software, or on its own during any discussion or activity.
