The Information Technology department at Ohio University Eastern is responsible for the oversight, maintenance, and updating of the various aspects of computer and technology services for the Eastern Campus. This includes the public computer labs, computers for the faculty and staff, the campus network, and internet access.
In order to provide the Eastern Campus community with the best possible access to technology and internet resources, OUE has several computer labs which are open to students, alumni, faculty, and the local community. (Some of the computer labs are designated for specific classes and functions, and may only be available to students enrolled in certain classes.) Every computer is connected to the network and has full Internet access via Eastern Campus’ high-speed internet connection.
Computer Lab Locations:
- Learning Commons
- Computer Lab-20, 222 Shannon Hall
- Computer Lab-30, 226 Shannon Hall
- Science Lab, 333 Shannon Hall (for use for students in the science courses)
- Digital Art lab, 308D Shannon Hall (for use for students enrolled in photography classes)
Most computers at OUE are running Windows 7, but there are several Macintosh and Linux computers available also. The computers have the following software installed:
- Microsoft Office 2010, Microsoft Office 2011, and/or LibreOffice
- Mozilla FireFox
- Adobe Flash Player
- Adobe Acrobat Reader
- SPSS is installed in certain computer labs.
Most of the classrooms at OUE are equipped with a projector and audio system with wall connection jacks, several classrooms have permanent computer stations, and a few classrooms are equipped with SmartBoards. The Multimedia Room in the Learning Commons has a SmartBoard for students to use outside of class.
In addition to the public computers available to the Eastern Campus community, Eastern Campus also has a wireless network covering both buildings on campus. The wireless network allows people to use their own laptop computer to access the internet, without the restriction of a network cable. People can check their e-mail, surf the web, and do research on their laptop computer without needing a disk to transfer information back and forth. (You will need your OHIO ID and password to access the wireless network.) Temporary guest accounts to access the wireless network can be created -- see Peter Lim for more information.
