The iMacs in the LRC in Buck have been upgraded to 10.10.5 from 10.7.5. This is very important since the older OS was not being supported by Apple, Java, Adobe or Chrome anymore. Now that the OS is up to 10.10.5, all of these are being updated and of the modules in Moodle and other websites such as YouTube and Pearson will work as they should. While I was in the LRC, I found a couple of Windows PC’s that needed attention and I did some updates on those as well. If you encounter any issues or problems that need to be addressed in the LRC, please report the problem to a lab monitor or call 3900 so they can create a help desk ticket for someone to address the issue immediately.
We went through all of the computers in Buck 204 and updated Adobe Creative Cloud to its latest and greatest version. We also updated Java, Flash, Chrome, and Firefox on all of the computers to the latest version as well. We did some cleaning of the computer monitors and used Clorox wipes on the keyboards and mice. This room is still on 10.9.5 and is still functional on all levels. Please remember that this room has Deep Freeze and will erase all changes and anything that is not saved to the Thawspace. The Thawspace is reachable via an icon on the desktop. Please remember that anything put into this space is viewable by everyone and is cleaned out at the end of every term. We are considering upgrading this room to Mac OS over the summer. More to come on that as we know more. Also, Active Directory logging onto of the computers and a print management system is also still in the works for the entire campus.
