Correcting current markerboard performance issues

OCM is experiencing challenges with markerboard supplies and service delivery in some general purpose classrooms. We appreciate your patience as we work with Facilities Management and our product suppliers to correct these issues. 

OCM manages over 200 classrooms with markerboards around campus. Helpful hints for reducing problems:

  • Use only the provided Walltalkers products and disposable towels.
  • Do not use any other cleaning products or substances, these can damage the markerboard surface.
  • Performance of non-Walltalker products cannot be guaranteed.
Please contact the Classroom Support Hotline at 612-625-1086 or ocmhelp@umn.edu for any classroom concerns, questions, or information.
