What's New?

What’s New in Academic Computing Services?
SPRING 2014
 
“Color Printing PaperCut accounts at Fashion!”

Fashion design students no longer need to visit the main campus for their color printing needs.They have a “pay as you print” system for Letter and Tabloid color prints. Students can visit the fashion campus office and add credits to their accounts for on-demand printing. This method saves time by allowing students to print directly to the color laser printer from their workstation.

“Mountain Lion for Mac OS X!”

Starting Fall 2013, all MacIntosh computers in the computer labs have been upgraded to Mac OS Mountain Lion 10.8.

 
“Faculty Laptops for Checkout”

Academic Computing now has six MacBook Pro computers available for checkout by current faculty. These computers have the latest software and wireless access to the network. For information on reserving a computer, please contact the ACS Office.

“Smart Classroom Upgrade”

In conjunction with LAS, Academic Computing has completed the installation of the three new Smart Classrooms on the 5th floor. These classrooms are configured with a new Crestron control system featuring an iMac, DVD/VCR, digital projector and laptop connections all accessible from a touchpanel interface. This new system will be the model for all future classroom upgrades.

“Desktop Shortcuts”

Two network shortcuts have been placed on the Mac OS Desktop for ease of use and greater accessibility. The TransferVolume shortcut allows students to move files between computers independent from the OS. (ie Windows to Mac, or Mac to Windows). The second network shortcut is the Color_Print_Folder. Students needing to print in color can drop their files into the Color_Print_Folder volume and walk over to the Print Area in room 401. The student then directs an ACS technician to the open files for review for color printing.
