Computer Labs - On-Campus & Virtual

On-Campus Computer Labs

  • Campus labs are open with appropriate social distancing measures in place

Virtual Computer Lab - TechAnywhere

ITS has expanded the TechAnywhere virtual computer lab to aide courses with specialized software dependencies. Please remember to save your files somewhere other than on the virtual lab as files will not be retained. Some software is generally available for student download and more information is available in the above section.

More information about the TechAnywhere virtual computer lab and how to use it available here.

Virtual Group Collaboration - Microsoft Teams & Zoom

Virtual group collaboration will likely be a necessity for some classes. ITS & the CITL have addressed this by making Microsoft Teams and Zoom available to faculty, staff, & students.

Microsoft Teams

All faculty have access to Microsoft Teams. This is a very powerful tool for group collaboration both with video, audio, file-sharing, & group document collaboration. Meeting lengths are not limited as they are with Zoom (see below) - max meeting size of 1000 people.

Zoom

All faculty have access to a free Zoom account. This is a great tool for 1-to-1 meetings of unlimited length or large group meetings for a limited 40 minutes.  Faculty can request a Zoom Pro account, which provides unlimited meetings for up to 300 people.

More information about Zoom and how to get started can be found here on the CITL's Zoom page.

Online Supplemental Learning - LinkedIn Learning

All faculty have access to LinkedIn Learning. This can be used to deep dive through video courses on certain topics you may be teaching in class or to expand your personal knowledge. The videos can be linked in iLearn.

More information on LinkedIn Learning is available here.
