PHP 5.6 (the last version in the PHP 5 line) reaches end-of-life on December 31, 2018. OIT is requiring everyone to be off of PHP 5.6 by December 17, 2018, and will be moving all web hosting sites to PHP 7.1 by the close of business on Tuesday, November 6, 2018. If you run into problems, you can request to move back to PHP 5.6, but you will be forced back to PHP 7.1 on December 17th.

Per Georgia Tech's accessibility requirements, any publicly-available video must be captioned for end-users. YouTube's automatic captions are not enough to meet full guidance. Please see the Video Captioning and Audio Transcripts for more information.
While carousels are traditionally seen as a good way to squeeze more content into a limited amount of screen space, studies (see Should I Use a Carousel?) show that site visitors are most likely to ignore anything beyond the first slide, and a poorly built carousel can irritate users, leaving them with negative feelings towards your site and your organization.

Setup #1: Using Two Microphones at the Same Time
This arrangement is ideal for a large room or any room with a large table.
The two keys to making the "use both microphones" setup work are:
- set the microphones FAR APART (or else they will interfere with each other), and
- hook up all the cables correctly (and slightly differently) for each microphone.
Even though the two microphones are identical, you must choose one to be primary when using BOTH and then follow these steps:
WebEx Best Practices in Three Easy Steps
- Start the recording before the meeting. End the recording after the meeting.
- Publish the WebEx session recording to the Mailing List after the meeting.
- Use the two Chat150 units to set up a good microphone system.
Microphone Setup for WebEx
If videoconferencing with WebEx in a room of any size, you will probably need to use both the Chat150 and ChatAttach 150 microphones for better reception and quality.
You can reserve up to one (1) year into the future, and should probably do so after each month's meeting, since some rooms are very popular.
