Faculty Senate Academic Support Committee Report
Lab computers recycled
According to Maureen Windmeyer, “Client Services installed 181 new machines and redeployed 149 others and installed 200 new monitors over the Christmas Break in student labs around campus.”
eLearning Policy Council
The eLearning Policy Council, made up of senior representatives of 15 on the UNC campuses, is conducting research on policies for online and heavily blended courses. Most of the policies that will be considered will directly impact distance education. Currently, the Council is considering policy shifts that would move the cap for fulltime SCH load and standardize the fee structure for off campus students.
Official Student E-mail - Update
Recall that DoIT has been working with Student Affairs on the idea of making student e-mail addresses the official communication to students. This step will make the students responsible for checking their student e-mail and take advantage of the system that is set up. Students could keep their own personal accounts but it would be their responsibility to transfer the mail. Student Affairs and the Academic Council has already endorsed the decision. The SGA Current Issues forum has reviewed the proposed draft and will be submitting a report to the steering committee.
UNCP acquires DARS
UNCP, through the leadership of Registrar Sara Brackin, has acquired a license to deploy the DARS degree audit and advising information system. DARS will be implemented in parallel with the student information module of Banner.
Technical training has begun on the student information system modules of the Banner system. The first module is the admissions module, to be followed by the financial aid module and student records. Please be kind to the folks in those offices as they weather the next year and a half!
Also, the Finance module is expected to begin processing live, operational information in the next month or so with a permanent cutover at the beginning of FY06.
