Documentation

Classrooms with computers

Most of the classrooms on campus are supported by ITG. So this is the best place to go for help and documentation.

For various conferences, we have written cheat sheets on using the computers. We don't make an active effort to them up todate, if you see something wrong please let us know. Here are the files:

Gateway Exams

If you are teaching a class that makes use of the gateway exams (EDU).

We need you to do the following to have your class listed at: http://www.math.unl.edu/resources/undergraduate/gateway_exams/

After you set up your class in EDU, (See File:EDUclassfolders.doc for details)

Email us the following:

  • the link to the class
  • If you are teaching two or more sections of the same class:

some extra info to know which class goes with which link (typically time works best)

Special Hardware

In the Gradlab we have a machine, which is our multi-media machine. It has

  • a Scanner (using the Scanner)
  • a CD-RW/DVD-R drive

Please try not to use the computer unless you are using the scanner or cd burner.

We also have a DVD-R drive in an external enclosure, so you can make long term copies of your files.

Most of the office staff have scanners:

  • Marilyn has a scanner with a document feeder.
  • Lori has a scanner.
  • Liz has a scanner.

For special printers we have a color laser printer, the new one is sitting in Lori's office and the older one is in the gradlab.
