Checkout Process

The kits and individual equipment can be checked out for up to one week at a time, with the possibility of extending the checkout time, depending on demand. To check out this equipment, you will need to book an appointment with the EdTech Specialist, Aurelio Puente. In this 30 minute appointment, you will get an overview of the equipment as well as the opportunity to ask questions.

You can book an appointment at www.bookap.youcanbook.me. In your booking details, state your request to check out a podcasting kit and any additional hardware you are looking to borrow. This appointment will also serve as the start date for your reservation. If there is no hardware available, Aurelio will contact you with alternative dates prior to your appointment.
