WELCOME TO LEO! The Learning English Online (LEO) computer lab, located in 226 Fraser Hall, consists of 21 computers, including an instructor machine that is connected to an overhead LCD projector for display to the class. In addition to the standard Office 2010 installation (Word, PowerPoint and Excel), the room provides access to Focus on Grammar, Oxford Picture Dictionary Interactive and a variety of multimedia and typing programs. Students can listen to AEC textbook supplements and record their voices digitally for class assignments. Although the lab is primarily used as a teaching classroom, it can be used by students any time the lab is free.
