  • 1. Technology Committee Minutes March 30, 2009 1:00 p.m. – 3:30pm Members Present: Creighton Alexander, T&L; Elizabeth Downs, LTHD; Dan Chapman, CFR; Kent Rittschof, Committee Chair, CFR; Beverly Strauser, T&L; Ex-Officio Members: Donna Colson, Michelle Rivera; Guests: Patricia Beblowski (IT Services), Pam Deal (Emerging Tech) Agenda items included: 1. Minutes 2. Apple Dual Boot Status in IRC 3. Funding for 5 year old computers, etc 4. Technology Plan for 2009-2010 Minutes Minutes were accepted without revisions Apple Dual Boot Computers in the IRC Michelle and Kent reported on the 10 newly installed Apple Mac computers. Windows has been installed with a dual boot program that has an unfamiliar name. Kent suggested that we see whether the boot program can be set to allow students to choose their system from the screen rather than having to read the paper sign that instructs to re-start the system. Currently, the boot program automatically times out and boots the Mac OS. Students have been successfully using the computers, including the Mac OS and the units are working well. Cedric from Apple took back the loaner Macs, but left one for us to demo. It has the boot-picker version of the dual boot (as used by UGA). Michelle explained that the dual boot program IT services used allows for a quick image of the computers for updating (45 minutes). End of Year Funding Technology requests were prioritized into four categories in addition to the new faculty computers that the committee was told would be covered by Provist office funds. A high end computer was deemed unacceptable, given that there was no suitable rationale provided. Suggestions for faculty laptop requests were provided, given the new smart classrooms. Technology Plan The committee examined a draft of the 2009-2010 plan and discussed additional changes. Helpful input was provided by Pattie Beblowski and Pam Deal on the committee’s ideas. Michelle will provide Appendix B to justify support for the IRC. The next meeting will be Monday, April 20, 2009 at 1-3pm. The meeting adjourned at 3:40 pm
