Going forward, we will likely have less funding than we have in the past. 6. LMS update – the joint RFP with CSN produced 8 applications/submissions. TMCC has completed its faculty review and has recommendations. Currently waiting for CSN to complete their faculty process. Faculty rankings (from the committee as well as evaluations submitted by any faculty reviewing the webinars): • Instructure/Canvas • Desire2Learn The other 2 solutions in ranking were viewed as separated from the first 2: • • MoodleRooms Sakai Costs for any new solution will likely include outsourced hosting (often required with the solution) – a migration time table will be developed once a final decision has been made 7. Campus Technology Plan draft – has been presented to Dr. Tuthill for his review – Chris and Fred have requested its endorsement so it can be posted as one of the campus planning documents 8. Smart Classroom prototype – in RDMT 256 – committee members are encouraged to check it out and provide feedback regarding likes/dislikes – encourage colleagues to do said same. Fred requested that Steve Z. identify the costs of the prototype classroom to be forwarded to the Foundation as part of the materials needed for the capital campaign 9. Committee reports - the chair of the WebCollege Faculty Advisory Committee is Crystal Swank – they will decide on their work plan for the year at their next meeting. Meetings are the same Friday as Faculty Senate at 11:00 a.m. There were no other reports 10. Announcements – agenda item requests • Tammy reported on problems with clickers (group response system) – Steve indicated he thinks they have finally isolated the problem • Thomas asked about campus licensing for two ADA software solutions – where does a request go/funding for it. Fred suggested that if it qualifies for Tech Fee, could be submitted as a request. Otherwise, should engage relevant stakeholders/establish need and usage and then request a funding solution to Dr. Tuthill • It was reported there was a complaint at Faculty Senate regarding costs of supporting an online proctoring center (departments being asked to cover the cost). Fred reported on the history of the online center – it now is his responsibility. The cost of the center has been significantly reduced (now just over $3 an exam). He also indicated he will request a mid-year and permanent budget augmentation and will also submit a Tech Fee request. Funding has been through the VPAASS office but budget reductions have eliminated that as a solution for now. Meeting adjourned at: 2:00 p.m. Next meeting, Wednesday, December 14, 2011 1:00—2:00pm SIER201 Page 2 of 2; Meeting Minutes - 10/14/2009 Rev.: 10/10/2011 TMCC is an EEO/AA (equal opportunity/affirmative action) institution and does not discriminate on the basis of sex, age, race, color, religion, disability, national origin or sexual orientation in the programs or activities which it operates.
