ACMS Services Available for Faculty
Also see the Faculty Guide to Academic Information Technology.
- Computer Labs and Servers: See Instructional facilities. To make lab reservations contact the ACMS Accounts Office.
- Software: See existing Instructional software on ACMS systems. Make requests for new software through your department's annual Instructional Computing Plan (ICP).
- Accounts for instructors and TAs: The ACMS Accounts Office staff will be happy to set up accounts in advance so instructors and TAs can try out software and develop assignments before the quarter begins. Arrangements can be made to keep the instructor's account and files online from year to year if the instructor continues to teach the same course.
- Accounts and resources for students: All undergraduate students and most graduate students receive basic computing services from ACMS. Students receive additional access to systems and resources (disk space, CPU time, etc) if they are enrolled in a course for which the instructor has arranged ACMS support. ACMS prepares accounts and lab access codes for instructors to distribute to students. Before the first day of class, an account is assigned to each pre-enrolled student. On request, individualized account slips are printed, as well as a roster and set of special account "add slips" to be filled in and returned to ACMS by students who add the class. The course instructor or TA can pick up the account slips, roster, and lab access codes after 12:00 noon on the first day of classes. Add slips are needed for auditors. Waitlisted students are added by default; please contact the Accounts Office to opt out. Concurrent (Extension) enrollment students can self-register for an ACMS computing account.
- Email lists to communicate with students:
You can contact the ACMS Accounts Office for assistance in choosing the best option for your needs.
- Assistance for Instructors Using ACMS Facilities: ACMS Accounts Office Staff are available to assist instructors and TAs with the use of ACMS facilities, including using Unix systems and setting up Turnin for students' homework assignments. The IWDC offers in-person tutoring up to ten hours per school year for TED.
