Computer Classrooms

The Writing Center Computer Classroom (1563C) and AmLa Classroom (1555) are available for instructors to use. Typically, instructors use the computer classrooms for in-class writing sessions, grammar and punctuation review, research demonstrations utilizing Mt. SAC library databases and the Internet, or introducing the gateway to an online or hybrid class.

Each room houses thirty computers equipped with internet access, MSWord, MSPowerPoint, and a number of instructional grammar and punctuation programs. Students can print any work written for class for free as well in both classrooms as well. Projection systems and ELMO document cameras are also available at the instructor's station in each room.

Reservation Instructions

Faculty may sign up for use of one of the two computer classrooms by contacting Nicole Blean at x5616 or Requests are finalized once you receive a confirmation e-mail indicating the date, time, and room for your request, but there is no guarantee that we can meet all requests.

Reservation requests may be submitted up to one semester in advance and will be considered in the order they are received. Reservation confirmations will be sent approximately two weeks prior to the beginning of the semester for which the classrooms are requested.

One of the great features of our computer classrooms is SynchronEyes® software, a program allows instructors to better 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.

You can also download the "SynchronEyes® Software Basics" or "SynchronEyes® Software Toolbars" handouts for more information and instructions.
