Professional Learning Center now supports Windows 2000


Departments, labs and centers that have been waiting to test applications on Windows 2000 before purchasing the operating software may now begin testing at the Professional Learning Center (PLC).

The PLC just completed conversion of one of its five training rooms to a Windows 2000 environment. The 13 Dell computers in the classroom are loaded with MIT-supported applications such as SAP 4.5b, Office 2000, Office 97, COEUS, BrioQuery, Dreamweaver, FileMaker Pro and Netscape.

The PLC, located in Building W89 at 301 Vassar St., is available for use at no cost for training classes or for testing MIT-supported applications on the Windows 2000 operating system.

MIT areas interested in holding a training session or using the facility for testing purposes should complete the room reservation request form or contact Robin Carleton at x8-9511.

Courses are also available at the facility, offered by different MIT training departments, labs and centers. The other four classrooms are currently running Windows NT 4.0 and will be upgraded to Windows 2000 next spring.

To get to the PLC from campus, community members can walk; ride the Tech Shuttle, which arrives at stop F every 20 minutes; or take the crosstown bus (CT2), which stops just down the street.
