Cooperative Lab Management (CLM)

Starting in the 2014 fall semester, Penn State York computer labs will be participating in Cooperative Lab Management, a university shared service provided by Classroom and Lab Computing from University Park. CLM is built on a consistent, hardened operating system image, leveraging a common set of software. CLM provides students and faculty a more consistent computing experience when moving between campuses or around University Park. CLM has significant key features that will benefit students and faculty in a classroom or lab environment:

  • Roaming User Profiles – contains user preferences and application settings that follow the user from computer to computer.
  • Classroom Control – a software utility for use by an instructor from a podium computer in a teaching lab that will lock student screens to help minimize classroom distractions.
  • Doceri - an application that can be used with any Windows or Macintosh computer, to control a podium computer with an iPad.
  • Printing – students can request printing credit online for pages not printed or spoiled pages; purchase additional pages on demand via LionCash+; and manage printing settings.

Computer Lab Policies

  • DO NOT connect personal computers (Laptops, Desktops, etc.) to another computer in the lab or to the Local Area Network (LAN)
  • No food or drink is allowed in the computer labs
  • Please show courtesy to other students in the computer labs
  • There is NO GAME PLAYING ALLOWED IN THE LABS
  • DO NOT hack into unauthorized computer systems. (see Policy AD-20)
