Just a quick update, that I’ve been informed that both carts are missing laptops. This is because at the end of last year, they were put aside as students have broken keys off. I’m looking into getting them fixed, but as of now we are short 2 laptops on Laptop Cart 1, and 1 laptop on Laptop Cart 2. Please keep this in mind when you are booking (if you have a smaller class size, try to book Cart 1 if it is available) the carts to help out your coworkers.
As well, please be vigilant with students about using the equipment properly. Make sure to assign 1 device to a student for the entire project (perhaps even the semester) so we can track back future problems to a specific student, and take proper actions if issues do arise.
I will be adding a communication book to each cart, so we can keep track of what is happening within each cart- rather than multiple emails or posts. Should issues problems arise, please write down specifically what is wrong in the book, and I’ll initial the entry once I’ve read it. I’ll highlight any problems once they have been tended to.
It’s been great chatting with/ trying to help people so far in only the first few days of the semester. I’m trying to get around and help get things up and running ASAP if there are problems so you can all start in on your courses without too much interruption. Please bear with me as I’ll do my best to help/resolve issues as I quickly as I possibly can with one block of time to do so.
