Fall 2018 Smart Classroom and Computer Lab software changes

In preparation for the fall 2018 semester, CTS will be updating all campus lab computers and classroom teaching station computers over the summer.  We are using this brief survey to gather faculty software requests for both computer labs and smart classrooms

To allow time for installation and testing, please complete this survey by May 14th. The survey must be submitted once for each Lab/Classroom where the software is needed. Late survey submissions may be accepted, but priority is given to requests received by the deadline.

Existing software will not be automatically included when the computers are refreshed over the summer. Any needed software should be requested again even if it was previously installed it in the same space. The standard software installed on PCs and Macs in most campus public computer labs is listed below. Please note that you must specifically request installation of any software that does not appear on the “standard” software list.

     PC Lab Standard Software:

  • WindowsEnterprise 64-bit
  • MicrosoftOffice (Word, Excel, Outlook, PowerPoint, Publisher, OneNote, Access)
  • AdobeCreative Cloud (Acrobat Pro, After Effects, Animate, Audition, Bridge,Dreamweaver,  Fuse, Illustrator,  InCopy, InDesign, Lightroom,Media Encoder, Muse, Photoshop, Prelude, Premiere Pro)
  • Browsers:Internet Explorer, Edge, Google Chrome

      Mac Lab Standard Software:

  • macOS
  • MicrosoftOffice (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, OneNote, plus Pages, Keynote,Numbers)
  • AdobeCreative Cloud (Acrobat Pro, After Effects, Animate, Audition, Bridge,Dreamweaver,  Fuse, Illustrator,  InCopy, InDesign, Lightroom,Media Encoder, Muse, Photoshop, Prelude, Premiere Pro)
  • Browsers:Safari, Google Chrome

Please be advised that all lab computers will be refreshed over the summer and we anticipate that many lab computers will be replaced.  Be sure to fill out a request for each piece of software needed in each lab or classroom. If you have an extensive list of software, or you need specific software in multiple locations, it may be easier for you to file a CTS Work Order or to call CTS at x6465. 

The deadline for requests for software installation - whether for free software or for ITAC provided software – or for software being purchased by your department for the fall 2018 semester - is Monday, May 14th. CTS will notify the original requestor once the installation is completed, and we will ask that you visit the room and test the software to verify that it is working to your satisfaction before classes begin.

Note:  For room change requests, please contact Danielle Williams, Assistant Registrar at 914-251-6368, or email danielle.williams@purchase.edu.

Important: If you are assigned to teach in a new classroom or lab, which you have not previously used, we encourage you to schedule an appointment to meet someone from CTS in that room to review the use of equipment in that specific smart classroom or lab in advance of the first day of classes. While most rooms have a standard set of services, they are all unique in some respects, and familiarizing yourself in advance with the room you will be using is always a good idea.
