- Approval of the minutes of the October meeting--Marcia motion, Dave second, approved
- An update on clickers - recent problems in ATCs (and resolution?) John - problems which may be hardware. In his class they crash about half the time. Lanigan 101 and 103 computers, really slow - 17 min to boot yesterday.
- WiFi in classrooms -
Can all students be connected? Greg: not designed for each person, some with 3 devices, to connect simultaneously. Greg noted that extra access points were added to 101.
Suggestion is to contact CTS help desk if there is a problem. They need date, time and person's names that are having problems. In new buildings, CTS is planning for more access points. Hope people don't come in with 4-5 devices.
Marcia - 2 classrooms in Wilbur have access issues.
iPad/iPhone issue-if updating to newer IOS, must erase profile and then install it again.
- Faculty-owned computers and connections to the campus network.
John: Didn't see a notice that faculty can't plug in their personal computers. Greg - he can't talk to that. Check with Mike. He advised students can't plug in either. Dave: maybe the delay in the example John presented was a late hire. John and Marcia gave examples of this causing problems with teaching in the classroom and guest speakers. Larry - faulty can request a laptop to use ahead of time.
Several mentioned that people need to be proactive.
John - any update on getting these to work? Dave: Reflections is another program.
- Video based tutorials - Lynda.com vs Skillport:
John- Nichole: Skillport stats: 54 users averaged: connected 2 times for 3 courses. Mark: Skillport looks antiquated.
Lynda: Kelly: more courses offered, access is easier. Lynda more tech-oriented? Mark: thinks it would be used much more than Skillport. Mark: Individual cost $40/month
Kelly will look into licensing options and prices.
- Experts group / experts list. Need a way to implement.
John: Add a best practice page with video and names of people who have presented. Marcia: get faculty to talk to faculty about what they are doing. Larry: name a guru for specific area - building dependent. Marcia: people come to her for tech info even tho she feels she is not technical. Mark: Idea- wordpress site. Marcia: find a person in a building to help. John: more ideas are welcome.
- Winter breakout workshops (and other workshops)
John: Send suggestions, please! Will be held 1/16 - 1/25/13. Plan to present? Use this link to propose a workshop.
