Subject: NERCOMP - Dual Boot Macs - March 23


Dear Friends,
Registration is now open for NERCOMP's upcoming workshop:
"Dual Boot Macs in Classrooms and Labs: The Best of Both Worlds"
March 23, 2010
9:00 - 3:00 (Coffee and Registration start at 8:00)
NERCOMP Members: $115, Non-Members: $240
Your fee includes continental breakfast and lunch.
University of Massachusetts - Amherst
Campus Center - First Floor
Amherst, MA.
The economic realities facing colleges and universities today has forced many institutions to focus on cost cutting measures. The challenge is to cut costs without cutting resources. By utilizing Macs with multiple operating systems, faculty and students can have the best of both worlds in one platform. The need for electronic classrooms containing computers with multiple operating systems will require IT professionals to be well versed in setting up dual boot operating systems quickly and efficiently.


This presentation will highlight set up, troubleshooting, dealing with time constraints when rebooting between operating systems, the support and training of faculty and students and the pros and cons of Dual Boot Macs.


After the lunch break, attendees will participate in a Lightning Round SIG. Participants are asked to share a five minute presentation. Recommended topics include problems and possible solutions you have encountered when setting up dual boot operating systems. Please send an outline of your topic in advance to [log in to unmask] and [log in to unmask] . Outlines must be received by March 1, 2010.
