SSCC's Spring Training Schedule

SSCC's Spring training schedule is now available on SSCC's training web pages. We have the usual NVivo, SAS, SPSS, Stata, WordPress and three new offerings: Writing Math with WordUsing the Computer Classroom for Instructors, and Stata Workshop: Margins and Contrasts. Note that several classes start next week.

Remember that all SSCC training sessions require preregistration.

Time to Reserve Computer Classroom for Spring Semester Courses

It's time to reserve the 3218 classroom or mobile lab for your spring semester class. Use our web form to make your request(s). Reservations are filled on a first-come-first-served basis. Contact Caitlin Tefft ( if you have questions. Caitlin's office is in the 4226 office suite and her phone number is 2-0862.  Visit our Instructional Support at the SSCC web page for more information about the 3218 classroom and the mobile lab. Note that the 2470 classroom used with the mobile lab has a new ceiling mounted projector and instructor's station.

Even if you do not need to reserve the classroom or lab, you can arrange for your students to have access to SSCC's drop in labs (3218 and 4218 Social Science) and Winstat (available from anywhere with an Internet connection) for doing their homework. Caitlin can help you with this as well.

Doug Hemken (, statistical computing specialist for SSCC, is available to help students with homework and class projects. You can also arrange for Doug to come to your class and provide instruction on statistical software. Doug's office is in the 4226 office suite and his phone number is 2-4327.

We have a document camera to use in class rooms where the screen covers the blackboard. We also have special software in the classroom that allows you to control or interact with your students' computers. Sign up for Using the Computer Classroom for Instructors or contact Caitlin if you'd like to learn more about either of these.

Tip: Plan Ahead for Remote Access to SSCC Resources

Last month's weather prompted many of our members to work from home, and SSCC resources make it easy to be productive while doing so. However, we suggest trying out remote access tools before you need them and when it's easy to get help. In particular, if you want to be able to connect to your office PC remotely, you need to enable Remote Desktop while you're still in your office.

Be prepared for the next storm, the next flu outbreak, or your next trip by reading our Knowledge Base article Working From Home and Other Remote Locations.
