During the Class

While a class is in session, instructors have the right to prohibit others from using the facility. Sometimes instructors allow other students to use the computers in the back of the classroom if not all of the workstations are needed. The consultants have signs to put on the door warning people that a class is in progress.

Software on the CSSSI Machines

Be sure the version of a statistical package that you use for teaching is the version we have installed. If you have Teaching Assistants, please verify that they have enough experience with the statistical package that they can help students finish their assignments. Assignments and exercises should be supported by adequate software instruction and consulting provided by the TAs. Please let us know in advance if your course will not have adequate support for software consulting or if specific support is needed.

Storing Data on Our Servers

Instructors should contact us ( to set up an account and disk allocation on the CSSSI server where you can store files for your specific course use. Software can not be run remotely, but access to files via the campus network is supported.
