WESTERN WASHINGTON UNIVERSITY

ACADEMIC TECHNOLOGY COMMITTEE

MINUTES OF MEETING OF February 3, 2010

 

The Academic Technology Committee was called to order on February 3, 2010 at 4:04PM. 

 

Approval of the Minutes:

The minutes of January 27, 2010 were approved with three amendments.

 

Agenda Items:

Constituent Concerns:

 

There was a question about who makes the decision on how long the upgrade cycles will last.  The decisions of the Student Technology Fee will be the determiner. If the committee decides not to fund every lab it is possible to have upgrades on a four year cycle.

 

Rob Galbraith plans to visit all of the colleges to view all of the labs to make sure all qualified labs are on the list.

 

There was a question about how to access the system while using Macs.  The help desk webpage has procedures and access information.

 

John Lawson followed up on the Banner 8 upgrade reporting that it went very well with minor glitches that have since been taken care of.

 

Deepinder Bajwa reported problems with the operating systems and file transfer issues in the CBE labs and whether this was an issue for ATUS so handle or somewhere within CBE. ATUS is available to help with these problems.

 

Kacey Morrow asked about the possibility of some labs having a four year cycle and some having a five year cycle.
