Laptop carts

Information Technology Services has laptop carts that can be reserved for classroom use. Each cart contains wireless capable laptops with the same software found in our traditional computer labs. Battery life on these units can run up to six hours.

Laptop Cart

Laptop carts are a unique solution to the occasional need for a lab environment.  Due to safety concerns, we no longer deliver power cords or strips with the laptop carts.  If your need for computer usage exceeds the expected operating time of the batteries of the laptops, or if you anticipate weekly computer usage, please contact Janice Marvel to schedule your class for a teaching lab.

To schedule a cart for your classroom, please call us at 217-206-6550. We ask that you please schedule these carts a week ahead of time. If possible, we would also like to deliver the cart 10 to 15 minutes before the event and/or class begins to set up the laptops for you.

iPad Cart

iPad CartA cart of 32 iPads available for classroom delivery. The iPads are powerful classroom resources, allowing students to interact with content, present from anywhere in the classroom, and collaborate with each other. For more information about the iPad cart, please contact Kara McElwrath. Be sure to check out how Dr. Donna Bussell has been using the iPads!
