Adjacent to the Writing Center's tutoring area is a computer lab for open student use. The lab has twenty-one IBM-compatible computers, loaded with a variety of class-related software, including Windows XP with the Office Suite (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Access). Students may use computers for Internet research. Others work in the Daedalus Integrated Writing Environment (DIWE), a program used in many composition classes. Other students use course-specific programs for instructional and testing purposes. The labs are served by fast, high-quality laser and ink jet printers and a scanner.
Students are welcome to drop in for free lab time during open hours. Students must sign in to use the lab.
Across the hall from the lab, in H-501, H-504, and H-506, are three computer classrooms that serve many students in English, reading, and foreign language classes.
Assistance is always available in the computer lab. Student aides are scheduled throughout the day and evening. Our Teaching Lab Assistant, Edwina Gray , offers expert professional help during the day to both students and teachers. Contact Mrs. Gray at (845) 431-8095.
