Homework Help in the CTC
Student Assistants in the CTC
Help is available for students who come to the Computer Technology Center (CTC). We have student Teaching Assistants on the floor who circulate among students, helping them with computer-related homework. Not all TAs know all software; however, they usually know Digital Media applications and/or MS Office and can help with searches, browsers, and use of the Student Planning software. In addition, sometimes tutors are in the CTC who can help with specific software e.g. QuickBooks. Help with Canvas, printing, scanning, and connecting your devices to our wireless network is always available in the CTC. Also, located at the CTC front desk, are student Office Assistants who are available for general questions and checking out library books, USB drives, wrist pads, headphones and other equipment.
Instructor Help in the CTC
Some instructors specifically schedule time in the CTC for their office hours. Check at the CTC Front Desk or on your instructor’s Cabrillo Web page to find out if they are doing any hours in the CTC (1400 building). Call the CTC Front Desk at 477-5277 for more information.
Getting Hired as a Student Assistant in the CTC
If you are interested in becoming a Student Assistant in the CTC, please check out the Cabrillo Student Employment Site and click on the Find a Job button. When the CTC is hiring Student Assistants, we list both the Teaching Assistant and the Office Assistant jobs as On-Campus jobs—so look for jobs that start with OC-CTC. Jobs for both Teaching Assistants and/or Office Assistants are usually advertised towards the end of the semester and/or the beginning of the semester. If you are interested, come down to the CTC (1400 building) and speak to Rhea Leonard for a brief job description, job availability, and/or a tour of the computer lab. Students are typically hired on a semester-by semester basis, but usually the student has the option of working the following semester— if the student’s schedule and the available CTC shifts coincide. Students must be registered for at least 6 units to be employed in the CTC.
