- Either purchase the software with enough licenses (one for each computer in the lab), or
- Have a letter from the software (or textbook, if it came with a text) publisher giving us permission to install the software in the lab, or
- If the software is freeware, provide freeware licensing information to the ITHelp desk.
Email the IT Helpdesk and request that ticket be created to have the software installed. Please include the building and room number the software is to be installed in, the purchase order number (or other licensing information from the publisher), when you require the software to be installed by (one month before class starts), and when the software is to be taken off the computers.
If possible, installations should be limited to between term time
frames in order to minimize disruptions.
The instructor MUST test the installation before the class starts in order to avoid problems. Please test it using exercises you will be asking your students to do (ie: print from the program, save files, etc.).
