The Computer Classroom (1563C) and the AmLa Classroom (1555) in the Writing Center are available for instructors to use. Typically, instructors use the computer classrooms for in-class writing sessions, grammar and punctuation review, demonstrations of conducting research via the Mt. SAC library databases and the Internet, or introducing the gateway to an online or hybrid class.
Each room houses thirty laptop computers containing MSWord, MSPowerPoint, grammar and punctuation software, and Internet access. Students can print any work written for class for free as well in both classrooms. A projection system and ELMO (document camera) are also available.

One of the great features of our computer classrooms is SynchronEyes® software. The program allows instructors to facilitate learning in the computer classroom environment. Some of SynchronEye's® most useful features allow instructors to distribute and grade quizzes, send or receive documents from students, broadcast a student's or the instructor's screen, and limit which websites students can use. For help using the program, contact Erin Danson at x6703.
