The campus has several computer labs on campus. Most are reserved for classes and student use. The lab in the library is open to all - community, students and staff. It is open during the library's hours. There are also laptops available for checkout in the library. They may be reserved by calling the Helpdesk (307-855-2198). Anyone checking out a laptop must complete a user agreement and pick-up and return the laptops to the library during library hours.
To reserve a computer lab, complete a CWC facililties request and specify that you need a computer lab.
The college provides a CWC email address for all instructors and encourages students to contact them through this email address. If you would like it to be forwarded to another email address, please contact the Helpdesk (307-855-2198).
The use of CWC computers requires compliance with college computing policies. You will be asked to sign a compliance form (below) annually. Please return the completed form to the IT office. Questions may be directed to the Chief Information Officer at 307-855-2196.
"Use of CWC e-mail and Internet access for amusement, personal communications and/or non-CWC purposes is strongly discouraged. Although occasional personal or non-College use may be allowed, any use that adversely affects other users, that interferes with the efficient and effective operation of the system or the appropriate discharge of college duties, or that violates any local, state, or federal laws or regulations or college policies and procedures may result in disciplinary action. The College absolutely will not tolerate any form of destructive or harmful e-mail or Internet use, including but not limited to harassment, vandalism, pornography or obscenity. Use of the College electronic communications system for personal business with the intent to profit is strictly prohibited. Non-compliance may result in a warning, written reprimand, loss of system privileges, or other disciplinary action as recommended by the IT Director and the employee’s supervisor and approved by the appropriate dean or next level supervisor."
Currently, CWC uses CANVAS as our learning management system. Every course offered for credit must have a minimal CANVAS shell that includes a syllabus and contact information for the instructor and, when applicable, office hours. CWC encourages the use of the CANVAS shell for a tutorial or individualized assistance. Please contact CWC's Instructional Technologist (307-855-2161) for more information, or for help in managing your online CANVAS course shell.
Adjunct accounts have the same access to CWC Public Docs as do any other staff accounts. When logged in on a campus computer, all staff accounts have access to public docs. When off-campus, no one has access to public docs (unless using Remote Desktop Protocol to remote into remote.cwc.edu or remote2.cwc.edu).
