Re: How you can use Minitab
Date: Last updated March 12, 2004
You will be able to continue using the Minitab Version 12 that you have been using. It is installed on the one computer per campus in the adjunct office. If you don't know which it is, please ask me. (Sometimes someone changes these computers and then I don't know to go reinstall Minitab until one of you tells me it isn't there. So feel free to ask.)
I recommend that you take your Minitab Manual with you to class each day. If you are familiar with Minitab 12 it is easy to answer students' questions about Version 14 with the Manual as a reference. There are not very many differences, although it is true that most of those are in the graphical parts, which are used early in the course.
After we have the networked version of Minitab 14 working, we will arrange for it to be made available through the computers in the offices of the full-time faculty members who teach statistics and in the adjunct offices. This will take some time, since it takes some work on the part of our lab techs and we have a very limited budget to pay them to work.
Here is the list of which adjunct offices have it so far.
When using Minitab 14, it is ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL that you close the program as soon as you finish using it. Our license is for 55 simultaneous users, which will be adequate if people really close it out when they quit using it. When you have your students use it in class, at the end of class, look around at all the computers and be sure it is closed out.
I don't travel around to the various campuses and check on all of this. I depend on you to tell me if things need attention -- in our classrooms, in any of the labs, or in the offices.
