LAPTOP USE (for those with DSPS/INSTRUCTOR Authorization): See the instructor for instructions on how to obtain authorization to use a laptop during class and for class protocol on laptop use. Once granted permission, you may use your laptop in class, but only for taking notes on class material. Do not work on material for your other classes, term papers, or check your "my space" page and email accounts. You are expected to do this on your own time outside of class. Laptop screens (and the light they emit during slide presentations) can be very distractive to other students. If you have been given permission to use a laptop, please sit at the side of the classroom in an isle seat or in the back row of the class.
