1. On which tasks/items does the Technology Committee wish to move forward with at this point in the semester?  Two items were discussed as being feasible to address in the last two meetings:

  • The implications of losing the Webmaster Position at Chabot and the plan for future web needs. The committee would like to know if a plan is in place for after June when the position is gone. Lisa will contact Abdullah to gather a list of general tasks for the Chabot Webmaster and the necessities to be functioning for the fall term. In an effort to be prepared for fall, the committee would like to address these needs with the proposed replacement staff to ensure that he/she is aware of the needs, and if the college(s) need to reprioritize web needs. This item was "tabled" to another meeting so that we can gather information regarding the web needs.
  • The idea of a "local computer support volunteer" (so that Faculty/Staff who need minor computer support such as installation of FLASH, JAVA, and browser updates can call a local faculty/staff volunteer for more immediate assistance). This idea has been brought up in several venues around campus and would help to free up some time from Computer Support so that they could more efficiently assist with larger issues or installs. This would also help to meet growing needs for technology support, while still operating within budget constraints. Volunteers could sign an agreement regarding admin privileges, which upon abuse could be revoked. This idea was "tabled" to the next meeting so that Computer Support could be represented in the discussion.

2. The committee is currently still in search of a chair for the last two meetings of this year.

3. The committee discussed the need for an update on wireless access around campus. What's coming? Any issues? How is this information communicated with students? This topic was "tabled" to the next meeting so that Computer Support could be represented in the discussion.
