Department and Program Technology Requests 2013-2014

Due Wednesday, March 19, 2014.

 
Dear Department Chairs and Instructional Program Leaders,

The Academic Senate Joint Information Services Committee solicits requests for new or upgraded instructional technology from all instructional departments and programs each year. The Committee then prioritizes the requests and recommends items for purchase the following academic year.
 
This is the first year resources may be more readily available than any year in the recent past. The Information Services Committee encourages all departments and programs to submit new and upgraded instructional technology requests. It is still important for the department to prioritize requests as funds are subject to availability.
 
Instructional technology refers to computer-related equipment and software used to facilitate online or classroom instruction. Instructional equipment needs that do not fall within this definition should be referred to Erica Leblanc: Leblanc_Erica@smc.edu.

Please use the attached forms to itemize and prioritize your critical needs. There are two forms and an information sheet attached:
 
 
Before submitting and to ensure completeness, we recommend that you discuss your technology requests with Steve Peterson at x4183 before submitting them. Both of the attached forms must be completed and returned electronically to Peterson_Steve@smc.edu by Wednesday, March 19, 2014.
 
As a reminder, all full-time faculty computer requests are submitted to department chairs and/or program leaders. A separate e-mail was sent out to all full-time faculty with instructions on how to submit a request. Departments will be notified of the Committee's actions by email at the end of the Spring Semester.
 
ATTENTION: If you have a technology request that is very urgent and cannot wait until next year, please
contact Jocelyn Chong (CHONG_JOCELYN@smc.edu), as soon as possible. This could be either hardware or
software.

Thank you.

Information Services Committee

Full-Time Faculty Computer Requests

Due Wednesday, March 19, 2014

I am writing on behalf of the Academic Senate Joint Information Services Committee. We are preparing our annual prioritization of all instructional technology requests and need faculty input regarding office computers.

This is the first year resources may be more readily available than any year in the recent past. The Information Services Committee encourages faculty in need of updated computers to submit computer requests. It is still important for the department to prioritize requests as funds are subject to availability.

We now need to identify full-time faculty who:

a.     have not received a computer and have a need for one, or

b.     have a computer that is no longer adequate to meet their instructional needs.

Should you have such a need, please forward your request to your Department Chair, Coordinator, or Faculty Leader in your department anytime between now and Wednesday, March 19, 2014. We will try to address your need in a timely basis, so please feel free to send your request early.

Include the following information in your request using the attached Faculty Computer Request form:

1. Your specific software requirements, beyond Microsoft Office and Internet browsers.

2. A brief statement of the limitations of your current computer, e.g. limited processing speed, insufficient RAM or hard drive space, constraining monitor, etc.

3. How is this computer no longer adequate to meet your instructional needs.

Please let me know if you have any questions.


Thank you,

Information Services Committee

c/o Jamie Cavanaugh, Chair, ISC​
