eClassroom Support

Dr. Lii: "Good technical support is absolutely critical because CNAS doesn't have the ability to maintain the hardware/software.... The tech support from C& C has been very good. In this type of collaboration, support is indispensable."

C&C (Computing and Communications) supports the eClassroom by way of:

  • Drive imaging technology-- Ghost by Symantec allows administrators to restore/deploy a Windows OS image onto each of the 42 workstations in mere minutes. In addition to the restoration capability, C&C technicians can remotely clone any workstation, deploy specific changes such as registry or desktop settings, or configure critical data such as TCP/IP settings and machine, workgroup, or domain names-all from a central console.
  • Lab Consultant-during public lab hours there is a student lab consultant available on-site for questions/technical assistance.
  • Kiosks--Student Computing Services offers support via on-site kiosks which assist with student account/password problems as well as other common computing issues. Visit theie kiosk service page for further details.
  • Storage- Students working in the eClassroom write to their student Z drive, which is issued to them upon enrollment at UCR. Instructors,at their own discretion, write either to the lab's hard drive or their personal Z drive. Zip drives were also available at the stations in the main room
