Active Learning Open Lab

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 for Berea College students. Educational Technology also operates the Ed Tech Open lab with Help Desk hours facilitated by student labor. 

Berea students can come to the open lab during normal Library hours to use our specialized equipment, software programs and active learning spaces. Students can receive help and informational resources on commonly asked questions regarding technology used in their classrooms such as video editing, graphics, and the use of word processing tools and spreadsheets during posted Help Desk hours. See our Help Desk hours in the Ed Tech Hours box at left.  

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 Help Desk is available to students during posted times.  See our list of available equipment and resources on this page.
