  • Clicker software worked very well for about three weeks, then problem was fixed, and they worked for a week and then broke again.  People are working on it, a bit disruptive.  Discussion on Wi-Fi in classroom.  Greg was present and noted that there doesn't seem to be many complaints about connectivity.  Rarely above capacity.  Some of the problems are in Rich and the Café; they need to contact the help desk.
  • Marcia:  Mentioned two classrooms in Wilber.
  • Also talked a bit about faculty owned computers, policy change of not allowing faculty to connect their own computers.  Suggestion that it came from above.  Discussion specifically where we do not have Wi-Fi for faculty and they don't have computers yet.
  • Also discussed, talked a bit about Splashtop also addressed the issue of lynda.com as opposed to Skillport.  Last year there were 54 users, Kelly was going to look into licensing, it is fairly expensive.  It may be cheaper with bulk purchases.  Asked for suggestions for WBO workshops.
