Collaborative Work Spaces

Four areas in the LRC are configured for collaborative work. Two areas along the south wall have six computers, connected to the RLC academic network, and a 60” TV in each. The screen of one of the six computers can be selected to project onto the TV so students can easily work collaboratively on a project, watch a DVD together, etc. Wi-Fi, a DVD player, and a 60" TV are available in the LRC 130 (east end of LRC) collaborative workspace.  Three computers, a table, and chairs are available in the LRC 115 collaborative workspace.  LRC Staff will assist, when needed, in the use of the collaborative workspaces.
