Virtual Lab Etiquette
Etiquette and Considerations:
• Please practice consideration of others and log off your session when you are done. Do not stay logged in longer than you need.
• Users cannot add/delete software. If you have a specific need for class, contact Luskin IT.
• Apporto is to be used ONLY for your LUSKIN related classwork.
• This will allow other classes to use the virtual lab and conserve available virtual seats.
• We recommend using Apporto for apps that you do not already have access to on your local device. So if you have Word or Excel on your device already, please try not to use those apps in the virtual lab to conserve resources for others to use.
• While your profiles are “static”, we cannot guarantee the files will remain on the desktop. Please SAVE YOUR WORK locally (download to local computer) or to a CLOUD storage source.
• If you find a problem, please screen shot/grab and send any issues to firstname.lastname@example.org along with your UID/Name
