    Malvern's Bio:
    I have heard that the average human being uses 10% of their brain's potential. Whether that's true or not, this blog is a mirror of at least part of my brain's functionality and activity. It is an outlet through which I share my experiences and escapades here at CSS. I hope that in between the mixed metaphors and rambling in my posts, you find something valuable. I have an overwhelming interest learning new things and expanding my horizons (which is why I am here). Wait, I just lost my train of thought... Welcome to my 'Pensieve' ~ thinking out loud..

Computing at CSS

With technology now being the axle on which the wheel of modern education turns, almost all the classes at CSS require the regular use of a computer, internet, printer, or some particular technology. Luckily, we have the Information Technology (IT) department that seeks to “enable enhanced teaching and learning in support of students, faculty, and staff; while also providing a robust and reliable infrastructure that supports efficient business operations”. Here’s a brief overview of some of the services they provide:

Academic Technology and Online Learning (ATOL)

The ATOL team comprises of professionals who work to “explore new technologies and expand the frontiers of teaching excellence to match the students of today and the future.”

Science 1206 Classroom with Individuals

Visit their homepage to learn more!

I have used the Learning Lab a number of times as well as the cool whiteboards that are all over Science Building and Tower Hall. I especially like the ones in the study rooms in apartments such as Cedar. Last semester, I tried out a cool VR experience they had set up to allow students to learn about the galaxy in a cool way and to try out skydiving in a virtual environment!

 

Help Desk

I worked at the IT Help Desk for almost 3 years and learned a lot from the experience! I got to meet lots of people that way (you make friends while helping people with various tech issues) and pretty much learned where and how to find classrooms as I delivered equipment e.g. laptop carts for classes.
