​​LANGUAGE LAB GENERAL INFORMATION

​Computer Checkout

    The IMC strives to provide the most current technology to the students of Riverside City College. With that goal in mind, the IMC maintains 73 computer workstations in the MLK teaching center specific for World Languages usage, which provide audio and video material in a streaming format.

    Students wishing to use these computers simply need to sit down at an available computer in the lab. After logging in to CI Track on the workstation, the student will be able to browse the streaming Language Lab Computer Monitor media website in order to find the required class material. If, at any time, a student experiences any problems he/she should immediately inform a World Languages staff member, who will be happy to provide assistance.

    Due to copyright restrictions, some audio and video materials for some foreign language classes may not be available on the computer workstations; however, the IMC and library are working to obtain permission in order to make additional titles available to students in digital format.​


Telecourse Lessons

    The IMC provides video playback for those students within the library who may have missed a scheduled broadcast of a KRCC Telecourse. Additionally those telecourses are available to view via the streaming computers in the library.Language Lab Computer Monitor

    A student wishing to view a Telecourse simply needs to inform a library circulation desk staff member of the title of the Telecourse he/she would like to view and the episode number. The student will then be directed to a numbered desk in the Specialized Technology Center where the video will be played for him/her.

The IMC does not duplicate or check out Telecourse videotapes to students for home use.​


​Video & Audio Checkout

    Those students who need to listen to audio material may check out a Language Lab computer workstation. Please refer to the Computer Checkout section for more information.Language Lab Computer Monitor

    The IMC also offers video replay services of supplemental Instructional Materials in the library. In order to view a video, a student simply needs to provide a library circulation desk staff member with the video's call number, which can be found in the library's LAMP ​catalog. The library staff member will inform the student of the number of the desk within the Specialized Technology Center where the video will be played for them.

    The library does not offer video checkout for home viewing. Only instructors may check out videos. Copyright laws prohibit the IMC from duplicating videos without written permission from the copyright holder​
