In the past year we made three improvements:
Creative Computing Lab, Technology Services Desk, and Training Lab in the Forum
The Creative Computing Lab (CCL) in the Forum supports media-intensive computing, creative projects, data representation, and research and provides a showcase for campus projects using new media technologies.
The After Hours Technology Services Desk and a PC/Mac equipped 15-station training lab are accessed through the Creative Computing Lab.
A portion of the CCL is devoted to comfortable, informal seating including a "data bar" with wireless Internet access and self-serve, a media-oriented "living room" for the campus.
The wooden booths and white wire chairs were retained from the Forum Grill operation; booths have received a modest update in the form of laptop plug-ins.
We hope the Creative Computing Lab draws people in, promotes a collaborative atmosphere, and enhances awareness of the facility and media-based projects.
If you are interested in reserving the CCL or the Training Room please contact Conference Operations at 269-3235.
ITS supports student, faculty, and staff information technology needs. Grinnell’s versatile ITS staff supports campus computing, network, and phone systems; collaborates with faculty to apply information technology to teaching, research, and scholarship; and works with administrative offices to plan and implement efficient process and information systems.
Please fill out the following form, making your selections based on what type of activity that you want on your listserve. Call the ITS main office at (641)269-9990 if you have any questions.
South Lounge, the large room on the end of the Forum closest to Burling Library, houses the Technology Service Desk.
