Multimedia Instructional Laboratories

Computer Lab

History

The School of Education has had a computer laboratory since 1980. The first instructional laboratory contained 26 Apple II computers and was located in 308 Ramona Wood Hall. Part of the instruction involved production of educational materials. The lab was a copy site for the Minnesota Educational Computing Consortium (MECC) and the Alabama Educational Computing Research and Development Network as late as 1991.

In 1992, the Technology Scholarship Program for Alabama Teachers (TSPAT) required participating colleges and universities to provide laboratories equipped with the computers and peripherals that would prepare teachers to utilize the new forms of computer technology. Room 210 Ramona Wood Hall became the Multimedia Instructional Laboratory (MIL) and was equipped with half Wintel / half Macintosh to meet the TSPAT requirements.

Today, the MIL continues to serve faculty, staff, and students with the latest hardware and software resources including Microsoft Office 365 connectivity and printing capabilities.
