Computer Mania Labs Upgrade To Serve Students Better T The Language Lab located in Agnes Arnold Hall provided foreign language students with a little extra help. Photo by Michael W. Smith. he Foreign Language Lab became more accessible and convenient through widespread improvements. The lab's on-line network system allowed the students to use the lab's tutorial programs at other facilities on campus, said Duane Franklette, lab director. "This system has greatly helped students because now they can work on language tutorials in other buildings when the language lab is closed," he said. Computers found in the language, English and Social Work labs have been connected to the system, Franklette said. He said eventually all campus computers will be joined to the system, but he said he was unsure how long this process would take. Ultimately, students would be able to hook up their own computers to this system and work at home on computer programs originating from campus, Franklette said. "Thanks to technology, we are getting close to this goal," he added. Franklette said the language lab acquired 10 new IBM computer terminals, almost doubling the number of computers available to students. Before last semester, the lab only had 12 Macintosh com puter terminals, he said. The new IBMs provide language tutorial programs in Spanish, French and German. Fenli Hong, a freshman business major, said the new IBMs really helped with German, because they are the only computers in the lab that offer a German tutorial. Students could use the Macintosh computers to work on language tutorials and write papers for their foreign language classes. Franklette was developing a new computer application that would allow students to write papers in English on the IBMs. "I would have no problem with students using the IBMs to work on papers for classes outside of foreign language as long as students who wanted to use the IBMs for tutorials got first priority," he said. The lab also replaced its old headphone sets with nine new ones. "These headphones are much better than the old machines," said Vivian Teng, a junior psychology major. She said the old headphones had a much poorer sound quality than the new machines and often broke down. The new headphones had a cuing system that allows students to find a particular spot in a language tape, said Steven Haff, a postbaccalaurate music student. Students did not have to continually rewind or advance a tape to get to the exercise they want, he said. Franklette said most students did not know about several of the services that are not new. Because the language lab used a satellite to pick up live TV broadcasts from other countries, students Thanks to technology we are getting closer to this goal. could watch foreign news and entertainment programs at the lab, he said. The lab also carried several foreign videos students could watch. Teachers could take advantage of this service by checking out these videos to show in class, Franklette said. Vanessa Baird, a senior political science major, said one of the best aspects about the lab is that students are not noisy there. "It's a quiet access to computers.
