More specific information regarding Studio Classroom 2

Guidelines

The classroom will be available to anyone in the Cockrell School of Engineering for classes, presentations, workshops, etc. However, it is not an "open lab"; that is, it's use is restricted to reserved times when there is a classroom proctor and/or a teaching assistant on duty. Reservations are prioritized on a first come, first served basis and can be made by contacting Danny Quiroz, 471-4016.  If there is a conflict, Danny will put the two parties in touch with each other so they can work out a compromise.

If someone needs a software package that is not currently available, that software is acquired:

  1. by requesting purchase from the Dean (e.g., Bob Gloyd) if it is a package that will be used generally, like PowerPoint or the other Microsoft products
  2. by the usual purchasing procedures in the department if it is a package that will be used by only one professor or department.

Software installations require two weeks lead time. Also required is help from the professor or his/her teaching assistant to test the software to assure it is working properly before it is needed in the class and to act as a point of contact for future reference.
