Lab Into - General Rules

  1. No Food or Drinks in the computer labs
  2. Help care for the machines
    1. Do not do anything that will mar or compromise the computers...ever!
    2. Be patient with computers that crash or freeze - it WILL happen often due to the demanding software we use in the course. It's your responsibility to anticipate and prevent data loss
    3. Do not use the computer as a personal music player - either by playing a music CD or by streaming media through the network; it puts unnecessary wear and tear on the hardware and on the school's bandwidth
  3. Respect your classmates
    1. Use earbuds to audit sound in your projects
    2. NEVER do anything that might cause a student to lose their work
    3. If you see another student has accidentally left their user account open, close it for them - they'll do the same for you.
  4. Do not modify the hardware or software
    1. Leave all cables as you find them
    2. Do not modify desktop wallpaper or screen display unnecessarily

YOU Control Your Education
If you know you are going to miss an upcoming class - it is your responsibility to:
  • Inform the instructor in advance
  • Have a classmate take notes for you on the day you miss class
  • Catch up on the missed work on your own time - Check this site for ongoing class notes
You can NOT expect to catch up DURING upcoming classes - you'll always remain a step behind.
The solution is for you to GET CAUGHT UP on your OWN time, and be ready for new instruction!

Projects will be deadline driven. If a student is unable to complete a project by the prescribed deadline, they must make arrangements with the instructor to establish a reasonable alternative, and to make extra efforts to catch up to the rest of the class.
