Lahore School of Economics

A distinguished seat of learning, teaching and research

Computer labs: Equal access

Besides learning computers and information technology applications being used every where in the real world, the mission of compute labs in any university is to assist students interested in career fields of computing, telecommunications, media, networking, or other broadly related fields to enhance learning and make informed choices. Lahore School of Economics Computer Labs makes a special effort to highlight the exciting learning options for every one.

Today, accessibility of computing facilities is critical for any student. Everyone who needs to use labs (who doesn’t) should be able to do so comfortably -- equal access. Computer labs are an academic boost in this Digital Age. The labs work is really making a difference toward improving students’ skills.

To make our labs accessible, the Lahore School has deployed stat of the art machines powered by microwave connectivity and 128 k bandwidth at the Main Campus (and HDSL link and another 128 k at the City Campus). We have principle of universal design at our labs. Universal design means facility for the average users, design for students with a broad range of abilities and skills. In our labs, any student can get to the facility and maneuver within it, access materials and electronic resources including free access to a prestigious journal like JSTOR, and making use of other resources across World Wide Web.

The staff is trained to support students with their problems – fatal errors, illegal operations, freezes -- and also help shooting troubles they face at their home work stations.

Students and teachers say the secret to the success of the labs is the atmosphere that is very conducive for learning. Even peers are forthcoming with help. The point is education can't occur in any other environment.
