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.
After the Class
Instructors should advise all students to log off the workstations and push in their chairs so the computers are ready for other users. Instructors should also log off the instructor's workstation, make sure the projectors are powered off, and remember to take any teaching materials with them.
