Intermediate and Short Term Priorities

The PPCIT decided to consider setting key technology priorities while the strategic plans are still evolving. The potential issues identified were:

  • private internet service for off campus users;
  • sale of long distance phone service to off campus students and alumni;
  • administrative software package;
  • lease/acquisition of PCs;
  • long distance phone service for off-campus students and others;
  • Internet Service Provider;
  • complete the network;
  • technology training for incoming students;
  • campus wide information system;
  • expansion of data access and decision support system;
  • universal access to e-mail;
  • e-mail as an acceptable medium of communication;
  • friendly classrooms (multi-media classrooms);
  • ability to fund large technology projects;
  • the decision to exempt some students from paying "mandatory" fees (computer and health) and not others;
  • technology as discipline-specific tools versus technology in delivery of instruction and student learning;
  • supporting technology in PLS;
  • the quality of computing technology on campus; and
  • how technology improves learning.
