The following links detail how to get started with the LRC Curriculum. The information is broken into two parts; instructions if you are working in the LRC Room in EN4045 or if you are trying to get the LRC Curriculum up and running at home.

LRC Room EN4045

All of the software needed for the LRC will already be installed on the computers in EN4045. Ask an LRC mentor for the login information.



To start simply log onto one of the computer in EN4045. On login Calico will open and run the program. You will be asked to 'Login' or 'Create New Account'. If you do not have an account click on 'Create New Account' and fill in your information. If you already have an account click 'Login' and enter you're first and last name.
