The Morgridge College of Education provides cameras and transcription machines for students to use in order to complete requirements of various courses. This equipment is housed in the MCE computer lab (210) and can be checked out from the technology staff.
There are a limited number of laptop computers Morgridge College of Education students may check out for limited time periods. Laptop computers may be checked out for no longer than one week at a time. Because of the high number of students needing the cameras and transcription machines, check-out time is limited to one or two days at a time. Often students check out the cameras, do their recording, and return the camera within two or three hours time so that the equipment is available for other students.
In order to check out this equipment, your DU identification number, e-mail and phone number will be required.
