Hasselmo LTC FAQs
There are many possibilities! You can take advantage of materials
available to supplement the textbook you're using in your FL course,
such as an audio cd or video series, as well as multiple software
programs available for individual study. You may also watch a video
or DVD at an individual viewing station or on the big-screen television
in the Media Screening Room, or, you can stop in to watch one of
many foreign TV stations we subscribe to via satellite. The LTC
also subscribes to a few foreign periodicals you can sit and enjoy.
Stop in and ask a staff member for help with what interests you.
How do I save my work in the LTC?
Simplest answer: on Netfiles, an online storage tool supported by the University. Sign up for your account here, or sign in here. You can also use a USB jump drive, which you can plug into any
computer. It will not break. You can also use a floppy disk or recordable/rewritable
CD, but really who wants to any more?
Can I work on projects unrelated to my language courses
in the LTC?
Of course. The LTC is the only computing lab in the Humanities Building,
and it is open to all UMM students. Each computer is equipped with
Microsoft Word, Excel, and Powerpoint. In addition, you may use
Polly, the development station, which is equipped with a color printer,
a scanner, text recognition software, Adobe Photoshop, Dreamweaver,
and Macromedia Flash. The LTC has one laser printer, but it is not
high-volume. You are asked to limit printing to academic assignments.
Please do not print off the Internet.
Food and drinks are
allowed in the Computing Facility. You may enjoy snacks in the Media
Room, but please take all trash away with you.
Present your UMM ID to check out the remotes you will need (you
will never use more than 2: TV + component). The LTC Assistant will
help you get started: once you have passed Remotes 1001, you may
rely on the do-it-yourself instructions on top of the TV. If you
have any difficulties, ask staff on duty for help. Do not tamper
with machines or wires.
Nope, sorry. All materials housed in the LTC must be used on the
premises. To watch a movie in the Media Room or on a computer 1) provide a University ID or your driver's license to the LTC Assistant and 2) fill out the Media Sign Out sheet at the front of the LTC.
Machines cannot leave the premises under any circumstances. However,
you are welcome to reserve the Screening Room for a small group
event, as long as you do not charge admission.
Not without special permission from the Director, Viktor Berberi. Clients (students and faculty alike) are kindly asked not to reconfigure any wiring or add or remove any components without
assistance from the Director.
