Interested in using TALC for your course?

If you are the instructor for a course that could benefit from using TALC, please contact us at to discuss your requirements.
To ensure that the appropriate software is available, student accounts are in place, and appropriate training has been provided for your teaching assistants, it is best to start this discussion several months prior to the start of the course.


A New Course Checklist

Three month before the course.

  • Please contact us about the course you are going to teach using TALC.

Soon after:

  • Request accounts on TALC for yourself, and TA who is going to be helping with the course.

  • If you are planning to share data with the students, request a shared directory for the course.
There will also be a unix group on TALC to control access to the shared directory.
The directory name and the unix group will probably have the same name, like "course601-21".
Your and TA's accounts have to be added to the access group.

  • The data for courses run on TALC is deleted once the course is over. So that the shared directory and software for a course have to be setup every time the course is run.
If you need to build / have some specific software on TALC for the course, please start early.
It needs to be installed and tested well before the course start, so that the solution can be found in case something does not work.

  • If you need help with setting up the software for the course, let the RCS support know at .

  • During the course, if students have difficulties with using TALC, the TAs are expected to help the students.
If TAs need training, this has to be arrange before the course with us (RCS);

  • As soon as you have a list of students who is going to take the course, please send it to .
The list has to have students' names as well as associated UofC email addresses.
The accounts will be created and added to the access group.

  • If you have any concerns or questions about running a course on TALC please let us know.
