The Center for Instructional Technologies has multi-purpose labs available to all faculty. There are labs conveniently located in the library on both the Pleasantville and New York campuses. Both labs are equipped with the latest technology and have students who are available to assist faculty with their technological needs. Although constructed slightly different, these labs have similar resources available to faculty.
Some of the technological resources available at the lab in Pleasantville are three Hewlett Packard PC’s with CD/RW drives, including one PC which has an Intelligent Graphics Tablet System and an Iomega Zip Drive. There is also a HP ScanJet 6200C scanner and a HP Color DeskJet 895Cxi printer for faculty use. Upon request, the lab will also loan faculty their Digital Camera and/or a Laptop. To find out more about equipment for loan, interested faculty should contact CIT firstname.lastname@example.org.
The lab in New York is located in a separate room from the actual department and is also used as a conference room. This makes the lab more conducive for small workshops and meetings. In the past the NY lab has been reserved by the Pforzheimer Center for Faculty Development, the XMBA program for class project meetings as well as other faculty for various meetings. If you would like to reserve the NY lab, contact CIT for availability. This lab has two IBM Pentium III PC’s, one with a CD/RW drive and the other with a UMAX Mirage IIse scanner. Both PC’s are attached to a HP LaserJet 4 printer. Upon request faculty can make use of the Iomega Zip drive that is within the lab. There are also Laptops and a Digital Camera available for loan to faculty upon request.
All PC’s within the labs have the following software available: Adobe Photoshop 6, Adobe Acrobat 4.0, Macromedia Flash 5, Macromedia Fireworks 3, Macromedia Dreamweaver 4, Microsoft FrontPage 2000, Microsoft Office 2000 and Microsoft Office 1997. The operating systems on these PC’s consist of Windows 98 Second Edition or Windows 2000 Professional.
