Labs

The many resources of the Geddes Language Center are available to students and faculty for language learning and other pursuits.

Computer & Video Lab – CAS 537

The computer lab currently has 12 stations with Lenovo PCs and 12 iMac stations. MS Office and Adobe Creative Cloud are installed on all computers.

Headsets and microphones are available at each station for listening or recording.  Recordings may be done via Zoom or web-based software such as Extempore.

Student printing in the lab is done via MyPrint, a managed service by IS&T.  See http://www.bu.edu/myprint for more details.  Black and white printing can be picked up at the lab MyPrint station.  Color printing can be picked up in CAS105, the CAS Think Tank.  (Scanning and coping is also available in CAS105.)

Faculty printing can be done using MyPrint or via the printer in the Faculty Workspace.  Faculty using MyPrint will use their IS&T print quota.  Faculty printing to the workspace printer will use a Geddes quota of 500 pages per semester.

The lab is also equipped with viewing stations with all region Blu-Ray, DVD and VHS players. Computers may be used for DVD playback by borrowing a USB DVD drive at the checkout window.  Groups of up to two can watch together in the lab stations.  Screening rooms are available for personal or group viewings when unoccupied.
