GauchoSpace is a set of online services designed to help faculty manage their courses and communicate with their students. Collaborate provides a range of support services to help instructors in their use of GauchoSpace, including training workshops for faculty and TAs, online help documentation, and email and drop-in support.
Collaborate's 16 instructional labs can serve as primary teaching locations and can provide reserved lab time for independent student activities. Students can use the labs on a drop-in basis when they are not in use for a scheduled class. The service page has more information about lab locations, descriptions of lab layouts and available software, how to request a reservation, and current lab schedules.
