Faculty Senate Academic Support Committee Report
5 Year Technology Plan
Work is just commencing on a needs assessment and plan (with costs) to upgrade our technology assets (people and infrastructure) and funding.
Implementation is underway for Clean Access. Clean Access is a network based technology that insures that computers attached to our ResNet (residence halls network) have current anti-virus protection and the latest security updates to their operating systems (i.e., Windows XP).
DoIT had initial discussions with Ruckus Network. Ruckus is an entertainment service for networked personal computers. The most visible of the services are the download services for music and movies. We are investigating the value for students on ResNet. Ruckus was one of four services tested in a pilot project at NCSU and UNC Chapel Hill. It received the best reviews.
Teaching and Learning with Technology Collaborative – Annual conference
Planning is already underway for the next annual conference. The 2006 TLTC Conference will again be held at the North Raleigh Hilton. Dates are March 15 – 17. The call for proposals can be found at http://conference.unctlt.org/proposals/overview.htm. This year, as in years past, the Distance Education unit under Dr. Charles Tita plans to sponsor a limited number of attendees.
Jason Atkinson has joined as our instructional designer. Jason is located in the Teaching and Learning Center.
UNCP went “live”, on a limited basis, with the Finance module of Banner back in April. The Human Resources module will “go live” in phases. The final phase is schedule to be completed in early 2006. The migration activities are underway on the Student module, with an anticipated “go live” date in early 2007.
