4-035 Electronic Classroom policy
4-035 is equipped with 20 SGI workstations and a large
screen, wall-mounted monitor.
The combination to the room will be different from the one to public
Athena clusters, and will be given out to faculty who teach in 4-035 or who
state that their students have homework that needs to be done on the SGI's.
Faculty will give the combination out to their students.
Faculty will be allowed to reserve the room by sending email to
eclass@mit for both regularly scheduled classes and one-time meetings
of classes. During hours not reserved for class lectures, supervised
labs, or recitation sections, all students needing to do assignments
that require the SGI and who are enrolled in classes that have
registered to use the room will have access.
In the case where other students learn the combination or follow someone
in to the room, a student who needs the SGI for homework will have priority.
An up-to-date schedule of reserved hours will be prominently posted in
the cluster, as will a list of classes that have priority during non-scheduled
Use of the room will be monitored so that we can see how well these
guidelines are working. Adjustments to policy will be made as warranted.
Our aim is to have the facility well utilized, while at the same time giving
students and faculty who need access to SGI workstations priority so as to
encourage innovative educational use of the equipment.
