To request software be installed in a CLC, send an email to edtech@mst.edu that includes the following information:

  • Your name
  • Your department
  • The software to be installed and each software package requested should includes
    • Software name and version
    • CLC location(s)
    • Courses affected by the requested software

Please use this Subject line when sending email:

CLC Software Request – Spring Semester 2010

If you are requesting software on behalf of your entire department, please include (in addition to the above information):

  • Instructors who will be using the software
  • Courses affected by the requested software (please do not use “ALL”; be specific–e.g. CHEM 001, CHEM 002, MATH 204, etc.)

Other important considerations when requesting CLC software:

  • If the software package requires a license, it will need to be managed by a license server
  • The software package has been tested by IT and has been determined not to “break” or interfere with the normal operation of other software installed in a CLC
  • The software package requested meets campus security standards.

Once the software request has been received by EdTech and IT, we will follow up with customers on an individual basis to ensure all software request needs have been met for Spring Semester.

We appreciate your cooperation and attention to detail when submitting software requests.

NOTES:

Software that meets all of the following criteria will no longer be included in the image for a given CLC:

  1. It has not been requested for 3 semesters or longer.
  2. It is not part of the standard software package for CLC images.

To ensure that software you need for your courses is available for your students, please submit a request for software every semester that you will need it. Do not assume that requesting it once means that it will always be available.

IT regularly rebuilds the images on all campus CLC machines to help maintain the integrity, stability, and security of the campus network.
