Active Learning Open Lab
The Active Learning Lab, located on the main floor of Hutchins Library, provides a flexible space with PC, Mac, Mondopad, Mediascape access as well as printers/copiers/scanners. Students often use the Open Lab for group work, brainstorming and practice presentations. The Mondopad and the Mediascapes are flexible and can be moved to any space on the library floor to create a student workspace. Students can also access specialized software programs to complete classroom projects in video creation or by using other Web 2.0 applications on our equipment. The Open Lab is available to students during normal Library hours and our student-staffed Tech Help Desk is available to students during posted times.
