The Center for Academic Technologies helps faculty use technology for instruction.

Computer Labs

Deep Freeze classroom software

Computer labs at CSUMB use Deep Freeze software to "freeze" the computer's configuration, settings, etc. Anyone can make minor changes to the desktop, change software configurations, etc. On restart, the computer returns to the original settings and any files stored on the computer are permanently lost.

Lab users may save their documents and files temporarily to the "Thawspace" on the computer and they will not be deleted during reboot. They should only use this space until they can save them to a to another storage service or storage device. Files in the Thawspace will be permanently removed during nightly maintenance.
