Standing Business

·         John Mclaughlin reminded the committee of the DC++ issue.

·         Mclaughlin suggested that in order to form a more solid opinion on the issue that the file sharing site should be looked at, to see what is actually being posted on it.

·         Elizabeth Stephan shared that the main concern is that this is being hosted in a dorm.

·         Yip-Hoi suggested that a faculty member who this directly affects should attend an ATC meeting so that the issue can progress.

 

A: 6 Year Planning Process

·         Frank Roberts summarized each of the initiatives for the 6 Year Planning Process that John Lawson had posted on Bb. There were three areas, Electronic Environment, Technology and Tools, and Electronic Resources.

·         The first section focused on the University’s homepage, more funding for the position and making the website compatible with mobile phones and iPods. It was proposed that another position be added to the advancement of the website development.

·         The second section focused on the improvement of study space for students, hire a person designated with helping faculty film instructional videos, and more ubiquitous wireless internet access. Max Knittel suggested that even if more furniture was added to empty spaces around campus, the study space availability would improve. 

·         Finally, the third section proposes to implement a new Learning Management System (LMS), expand ability to video record lectures (better recording software), a new Student Response System that could be used with their cell phones or iPods, and lastly, to implement a Virtual Desktop Infrastructure.
