Classroom Software

IITS maintains a standard set of software on classroom computers.

The following software is installed in public computing labs and classrooms by IITS. An * indicates that software is available for installation from Haverford on networked office or dorm computers. A link indicates that software is available for download and installed as freeware. Learn more about software downloads.

Academic Software

Some software in the labs is supplied by academic departments, normally for use by students in specific courses. IITS does not support this software. While we may be able to help you with basic operations such as printing and saving files, you should contact your professor or a TA if you need help with anything on this list. Many of these packages are also available in departmental computing labs. Ask your departmental contact for more information.

Adding Software

IITS puts out a call to faculty twice per year asking about changes to the classroom and lab images. Faculty can request specific software be added to the uniform image and, given available funding and licensing that permits campus-wide installation, IITS will add the requested software in time for the following semester.

Software that’s not part of the image may be installed on a faculty member’s College-issued laptop and that the laptop be taken to the classroom for use.

Although we cannot tailor classroom computers to each individual, faculty are also given administrator-level access to the Mac OS on classroom computers. This allows faculty to install Mac-based freeware, shareware and purchased software for which the faculty member is responsible for maintaining the licensing.

These guidelines govern adding software to classroom computers:

  • For paid software we strongly suggest that faculty install the software on their College-issued laptop and bring it to the classroom.
  • Faculty may also install any Mac software on the classroom computer as long as they take full responsibility for adhering to the terms of the software license and it doesn’t create security or stability issues.  We can give you guidance in that area if needed.
  • Installing software as a one-off carries one risk – if the machine needs to be re-imaged mid-semester for whatever reason (equipment failure, virus, etc.), faculty members will need to reinstall any software they added.  This can come as an unwelcome surprise – again a great reason to keep the software on your laptop.
  • This is strictly a self-service model.  IITS will not customize a single classroom computer.
  • IITS reserves the right to suspend administrator access to classroom computers where software is installed without appropriate licensing, where the software causes harm to the computer, or where the software interferes with the ability of other faculty to effectively use the classroom computer.
