Policies & procedures

Labs

Use, Care, and Feeding

To use a computer lab:

  1. Reserve the lab in advance in its appropriate Google Calendar.
    • Please DO NOT reserve the lab for all of a class' repeating calendar events. Just grab it when you need it.
  2. Use the lab. (Duh.)

Do when finished:

  1. Ask students to:
    1. Push in chairs.
    2. Ensure keyboards/mice are organized.
    3. Ensure desks are free of books, papers, and debris.

Don't:

  • Allow students to eat or drink in a computer lab.
  • Remove laptops from a cart during someone else's reservation.
  • Keep laptops out of a cart overnight.
  • Leave carts unlocked when you walk away from them.

Carts

Use, Care, and Feeding

To use a laptop or iPad cart:

  1. Reserve the cart in advance in its appropriate Google Calendar.
    • Please DO NOT reserve the cart for all of a class' repeating calendar events. Just grab it when you need it.
  2. Unplug and wheel the cart to your class location.
  3. Open the cart, hand out laptops to students.

While using:

  1. Never leave a cart unlocked unless you're physically next to it
  2. Students should not be sent alone to get/return cart laptops, as they will likely find the cart locked and will leave laptops on top of it. (We see this all the time.)

Do when finished:

  1. Ask students to log out of their computers (and wait until the screen goes dark)
  2. Ensure all laptops are returned (to their correct slots, if numbered)
  3. Ensure all are plugged in.
    • Note: some of our carts only charge half the laptops at a time. This is fine.
  4. Lock the cart and return its key to the lockbox
  5. Ensure cart is plugged in.
  6. Report any problems or damage via a tech support ticket.

Don't:

  • Borrow a cart laptop as a faculty loaner, unless specifically designated for this purpose. Faculty loaner laptops are available from the Technology Department by request.
  • Borrow a cart laptop as a student loaner, unless specifically designated for this purpose. Student loaner laptops are available for checkout in the library.
  • Allow students to eat or drink by a laptop.
  • Remove laptops from a cart without a reservation.
  • Remove laptops from a cart during someone else's reservation.
  • Keep laptops out of a cart overnight.
