Departmental Computer Support
The School of Drama employs Bill Dock as part-time Senior Computing Specialist to assist students, faculty, and staff with computing issues. You can contact Bill in the following ways:
Contact preference is email, and Bill will respond as quickly as possible during office hours. If you need assistance outside of office hours, contact the front desk (Hutchinson Hall 101, 206-543-5140) and a message will be relayed.
Priority is with issues relating to UW owned and provided equipment, not personal computers.
Computing Equipment available
Classroom Support Services (CSS) provides comprehensive media support and services to students, faculty and staff. CSS provides a full-range of audio and video expertise to the campus community and works with students, faculty, and staff both to improve classrooms to utilizef new technologies for information presentations and to improve student learning outcomes.
Faculty & Staff Issues
The School of Drama has a repository of files referred to as the LAN (Local Area Network) that each PC* user with a login is automatically connected to. After login, each user should be able to access the LAN by a single right-click on the START button, then a single right-click on “My Computer” or “Computer” link. The "P" Drive, named "Drama Data", contains all Drama files and folders. (Many student-access computers are not connected to the domain and therefore do not have access to the LAN)
Each user has a “home” folder created upon first login to the network. This folder should be mapped automatically and can be accessed from any departmental computer.
Rules regulating the proper use of UW computers can be found at the following sites:
If you have any questions as to the legality or ethics of what you are doing, please check these pages or ask the Computer Specialist to assist in determining who to ask. It is your responsibility to follow the rules, so be familiar with them!
Email is supported through UW Technology (formerly Computing and Communications). For supported email, contact UW Technology or see www.washington.edu/computing/email/. Users preferring to utilize non-supported email programs (such as Outlook) will not have direct computer support through either the Department Computing Staff or UW Technology.
The School of Drama has a departmental web site at drama.washington.edu.
Instructors may choose to create a web site for individual classes, either by using Catalyst Tools or third- party web authoring software. If you do create a web page for a class, please email the URL to firstname.lastname@example.org so that a link to the class site can be posted on the UW Drama site.
Additional Sites for the School of Drama may be set up for specific topics but will need to be approved prior to setup by the SOD webmaster. Email email@example.com to obtain this permission.
