Before your time is over at Purdue, most likely you will have used an ITaP computer lab on campus in one or more of the 40 locations. ITaP Learning Spaces supports and maintains over 40 instructional computing labs on campus ranging in size from 14 computers to almost 100 computers. The ITaP computers in these labs provide an extensive software suite and a secure work environment for faculty, staff and students. Instructors can request to have software installed on the lab computer network for course use, and can reserve instructional labs for teaching. These instructional labs provide faculty with fully configured computer facilities to deliver a high-tech, hands-on learning environment for students.
Labs with PC and Mac computers are available. All ITaP labs are equipped with printers and most labs have scanners. All PC and Mac lab computers have DVD±RW/CD-RW drives.
The Assistive Technology Center (ATC) is located in Stewart Center, room 111. The center promotes an accessible information technology infrastructure at Purdue that is usable by all students, faculty, and staff regardless of disability status.
ITaP provides two enhancements to the traditional computer lab setting. The first is designed to facilitate work in Small Groups. These areas support small groups of from two to six individuals. The second initiative has placed Laptop Friendly spaces in selected locations. These provide a DHCP link to the internet, power cord, and in some spaces, the option to make use of a USB connection to a large format scanner.
Room G073 of Stanley Coulter Hall is configured for group work. Students can bring their own laptops and collaborate in a space with movable chairs, desks and whiteboards, flat-panel screens to which laptops can be connected, anchored tables with high-backed booth seating, and a dedicated access point for wireless-network availability. Electrical outlets and flat-panel screens line the walls, the latter with cables connected for displaying content on one laptop's screen for others in a group. Whiteboards on wheels separate the work areas, while a partial wall divides the room in half. The room also has a printer that can be wirelessly mapped from any laptop
The lab's regular hours are 7 a.m. to 2 a.m. Monday-Friday, 9 a.m. to 11 p.m. Saturday and noon to 2 a.m. Sunday.
