Starting Your Lab
There are two ways to start a lab activity.
Schedule it. (Recommended)Because you will be accessing live equipment, the number of students who can simultaneously perform a lab is limited by the available resources. If you plan to perform your labs during busy times (i.e., weekends), it is recommended that you schedule the lab to make sure that lab resources will be available when you are ready.
Start it right away.
Note: If all lab resources are currently being used when you try to start your lab, you will be given an opportunity to schedule the lab at a later time.
