Using the Lab Connect Service


Lab Connect is a remote lab environment that instructors can request access to in order to support the delivery of their courses.

If you are looking for an on-campus computer lab, please visit the on-premise computer labs webpage.

Best Practices

To ensure this shared environment works smoothly for everybody, please follow these guidelines.

  • Save your work and close all open software programs in the virtual environment first.  This will help sessions to close successfully
  • Sign out after you are finished using the system by using the Sign Out icon on the desktop.
  • Connect to Lab Connect for synchronous course instruction during your scheduled class date/time.
  • Use the environment outside of business hours (8am to 5pm MT) for homework and projects.
  • Remember to save your work frequently, sessions are limited to 4 hours and once you log out your data will not be saved. You will receive a 10 minute warning before your session is shut down.
