We have recently added headsets and external USB card readers tomyRooms&Resources booking system.
The headsets can be used to create podcasts, to record a voice over for a presentation, or simply to make a Skype call. The external USB Card Readers are compatible with with all computers in the Information Commons, and support a wealth of different memory card formats.
All of this kit can be booked via myRooms&Resources, and is collected from the L1 Helpdesk.
Like MyPC, students can find myRooms&Resources under myQuickLinks within MUSE.
Kiosk computers are available in the Information Commons and some Libraries and are ideal for when you need to use web-based services but don't need the power of a high-spec PC.
Following feedback from students the kiosk service has been improved and it is now possible to print to student printers from any kiosk. They also run the latest version of Firefox and so you can use MOLE and MOLE 2.
For several months six computers in the IC have been running a pilot of a student computing service based on Windows 7. The pilot has been really successful and so we are pleased to announce that over the next few weeks we will be extending the pilot to around 100 computers on Level 1 of the IC.
If you have any views on the new Windows 7 desktop please leave a comment in this blog post.
