The instructional Windows computer labs have Java and Eclipse installed for CS302 students to do their lab work, their programming assignments, and to practice Java programming.. You may also choose to work on your own machine but you'll need to follow these instructions to set up your computer. You are automatically issued a Windows account to use the CS lab computer, which is done by the Computer Systems Lab (CSL) after you register for the course. This account is completely separate from the email account supplied to you by the university.
The instructional computer labs are located on the first floor of the Computer Sciences building. These labs are open from 7 AM - 1 AM every day. The following Windows 7 labs available for the use by CS302 students.
|Operating System||Room||Workstation Type||Notes|
|Windows 7||1366 CS||core i7 2600 16GB RAM||Used for labs on Tues and Wed
Consultant(s) on Duty (see schedule)
|Windows 7||1368 CS||core i7 2600 16GB RAM||Used for labs on Tues and Wed (see schedule)|
|Windows 7||1358 CS||core i7 2600 16GB RAM||Used for one lab on Tues and another on Wed (see schedule)|
CS302 Students have Computer Science (CS) accounts created for them to log into the Workstations that are located in 1366cs, 1368cs, and 1358cs. This means that you will have a separate login username and password for accessing the computers in the CS building. Please activate your account before your lab session.
If a new account was created for you this semester, you should have received instructions for activating your CS account via your WISC email.
Windows Users: You can now activate, get your CS login name, or reset your password directly from one of the CS Windows machines.
Login with the following credentials:Username: AD\accthelp No password.An application lauches that goes directly to the CSL account activation website. The application can sometimes take a small amount of time to load, so please be patient if it seems like nothing is loading.
The instructions are also written on the whiteboard in each Windows instructional lab and signs will be posted shortly.
If you took a CS class last spring or summer (including 302 on Windows), you already have an account, and do not need to activate it. If you don't remember their username/password, use the activation process to reset your password.
To activate or reset the password on a CS Instructional Account:
If you are not already authenticated via NetID, you will be redirected to the NetID Login page when you continue to the account activation page.
Once you have activated your account, you are able to login to any of the CS instructional machines (1st floor labs).
All the instructional computers print to the printers in 1359 CS. In order to print from any of the instructional machines your paper quota must be greater than 0. At the beginning of the semester all CS302 students receive an initial paper quota established by the CSL. If you exhaust your paper quota you must go to the CSL in 2350 CS during workday hours to purchase more pages.
Each of your print jobs will be scheduled individually and may print out on any of the printers in 1359 CS. To check which printer your job is coming out on look for your login name on the monitor by each printer.
If there is a problem with one of the printers or there is no paper left in the print room first tell a consultant on duty. If there are no consultants then send email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Do not try to fix any of the printers yourself.
For further information about printing (how to check your quota, how to remove a job that you printed accidentally, etc) check the Printing section of the CSL documentation.
During regularly scheduled consulting hours a consultant will be on duty in 1366 CS. Each consultant wears a nametag and, if working at one of the computers, will have a sign on their computer. Please feel free to ask consultants for help even when they're working at a computer.
The consultants are provided to help you with CS 302. They are CS graduate students who also teach lab sections. You can get assistance with:
For programming assignments, the consultants will not:
Consultants are not personal tutors and often will need to help other students. They'll try to help as many students as possible and may direct you to complete a particular task before providing you with additional assistance.
