2019 Classroom and Computer Lab Maintenance

On this page:


Classroom Upgrades

  • 109 Oelman Hall will be upgraded to a digital classroom, to be completed before the Fall 2019 semester. 

Maintenance Being Performed

Unless otherwise noted, all Registrar-scheduled electronic classrooms and computer labs will undergo the following changes:

  • Routine reimaging of electronic classrooms and computer labs with an updated Windows 10 image.
  • SSD installations in student computer lab machines will allow for quicker login times. This project will be completed in Summer 2019. Read more about this maintenance here.

Installation of Solid State Drives (SSDs)

CaTS has been installing Solid State Drives in computer labs to significantly reduce login/boot-up times. Times have been reduced from 4+ minutes to 2 minutes or less with these updates. This project will be completed in Summer 2019.

Mac Mini to Dell 5050 Transition

Last Summer, all instructor workstations with Mac Mini computers were replaced with Dell 5050 Windows PCs. See the 'Reminders' section below for more information about these systems. We realize this change could be a concern for Mac users, so we have listed several alternatives for you in the Preferred Options for Mac Users section below.

Reminders

  • All electronic classrooms are now running Windows 10. There will no longer be an option to run a Mac OS from the instructor workstation unless using one of the options mentioned below
  • The power button is now located on the Dell 5050 under the workstation (pictured below).
  • USB ports are now located on the rack under the workstation (pictured below).

Preferred Options for Mac Users

The Dell 5050s currently installed in your classroom is able to access the majority of services, apps, programs, and websites that you would need for your classes. However, CaTS realizes some users prefer Macs; below are preferred alternatives for those who still need to use a Mac in the classroom. 

1

For Mac Users Using a USB Drive

CaTS highly recommends putting your classroom materials into Pilot to access during your class. However, if you will be using a USB drive, test all of your course content to make sure it's formatted correctly in Windows 10. If you need assistance testing your course material, contact the CaTS Help Desk at (937) 775-4827.

2

Apple TV

Using an Apple TV gives Mac users the ability to use their own devices in the classroom. The Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) can provide training on how to effectively incorporate the use of Apple TVs in your course.
