ITCO Minutes 4-10-07 1 pm
Location: KT101
Present in the meeting:
Gail Rathbun, Eric Vitz, Joseph McCormick, Jeff Nowak, Richard Strong, Lee Peitzman,
Judith Garrison, Steve Carr, Suzanne Rumsey
Many thanks to Joseph McCormick for writing up the minutes.
Judith’s report from library (see page 3)
! Mishmash of ownership; thus indicated on the technology list provided
! Judith mentioned that wireless connectivity is found throughout the facility but
not mentioned on the form.
! The inventory excludes the basement, which includes the television studio,
graphics artists etc.
! 2 events per month used for satellite.
! Who can schedule the EITC? (Gail)
§ Answer: cannot be scheduled for ongoing classes. Faculty can schedule
for development events, online training etc.
Lee reported on distance classrooms (page 4)
! No questions from the group
Technology in Warsaw (page 5)
Richard reported on Classroom Medical (page 6-7)
! Some rooms on the third floor could not be accessed. He was able to look in
through the window of one of them to see what was installed in the room.
! Audio lab number 1 was locked.
Gail reporting on Engineering Technology building (pages 8 and 9)
! Used information from ITS website as regards to labs available in the facility.
! Also referenced laboratories schedules and ET lobby available technologies.
- Joseph reported on Kettler Hall (page 10-17)
- Gail asked that links be left on ITS web page devoted to lab environments on campus
as a point of reference for faculty and staff. This recommendation came about as Joseph
mentioned that ITS was planning on pulling information on what labs are installed in
departments (outside of open labs).
- Steve reporting on COM and ILCS
! Most of the complaints seemed to be based on a transparency issue. The
technology was there but was not easily accessed or used. Too many steps.
For the next meeting the facilities need to be done:
1
- Visual and performing arts (Joseph McCormick)
- Neff (Suzanne) (pages 18-21)
- Gates - No one selected
- Science Building (Jeff Nowak) (pages 22-24)
For next time, committee members were asked to bring a list of instructional technology
pilot projects that are anticipated or already in progress. Judith said that the library would
like to pilot: Instant messenger reference service (library)
Next meeting is May 10th, at 1 pm, in KT 101.
On May 17th Gail will present a report to ITPC.

Neff Hall Technology Inventory
I volunteered at the ITCO meeting on April 10, 2007 to inventory Neff Hall’s uses of technology. The following table lists the
location and a corresponding description of observed technology uses. I toured the building in the later afternoon of April 10.
Generally, the list includes all “open” classrooms that are not department specific. I did get a tour of 233, the Education Department
Teaching Lab, and 34, an open Nursing lab. However, I was unable to tour the rest of the Nursing Labs/Rooms, the Dental Labs, or
the Business Department. Further inventory might need to be done of the technologies used in these departments.

Science Building
Jeff, the two big lecture halls in the building (rooms SB185 and SB168) have computers, computer projectors, slide projectors,
overhead projectors and sound systems. The other rooms in the building are supplied with equipment on an as-needed basis by LRC.
We tend to get year round loans of overhead projectors for use in our labs, but any other equipment must be brought in daily on an as
needed basis.
The rooms in the Science Building were all built with AV kiosks in the back of the room. The kiosks are fully wired and
connected to controls in the front of the rooms. There just was never any equipment purchased to go in the kiosks to actually
use. As a result, the AV kiosks either sit empty or have been turned into storage cabinets for extraneous material.
It would be wonderful to have computers and projectors in each lab room on a daily basis. Such items as SMART Boards would also
be great. SMART Boards ( http://smarttech.com/ ) are becoming common in the local primary and secondary schools, but we have
never experienced them here. We cannot even play DVD's or VHS tapes without having to schedule projectors that are hauled in.
Such things as small flexible video cameras to show small items, demonstrations on the instructor's desk, papers, etc. on an overhead
video screen have never even been seen on campus.
Yes, there is a student computer lab on the ground floor of the Science Building. This is strictly for student use. It is nearly
impossible to take even a small group in there to work. As a result, this facility should not be considered an available Science
Building teaching technology.
The bottom line is that in the Biology department's standard teaching areas there is essentially nothing available other than activated
network drops and an empty, non-functional, AV kiosk. Any improvement to the equation would be greatly appreciated. I'll be glad
to provide a tour of the "facilities" if you would like to view the situation for yourself. I have approached ITS about this situation in
the past, and was told that the Science Building would have to wait and that other areas, i.e. Kettler Hall, were being upgraded first.
Thanks for your help
Bruce

Roaming:
1 laptop and 1 projector on a cart.
This setup is used for many purposes including showing power
point presentations, playing DVD movies, and accessing the Internet.
I imagine that you already have info on the lecture halls, but in case
you don't:
Both lecture halls have a computer kiosk at the lectern and it is
attached to a projector. Also there is an elmo projector in each
lecture hall that are attached to the projectors. There are DVD, and
VHS players as well.
In SB one student access computer lab.

students can always contact me via our class blog or through email
E-mail works well enough for those purposes for me
virtual office hours
?
I've used virtual office hours but only in my online class. I've never done videoconferencing, but hope to soon.
Just frequent e-mail messaging with students to address their concerns or questions.
6) What instructional technologies get used for your courses outside of the classroom, but in a physical setting,
such as a lab?
no idea
Depends on the student. Some use Connect and Webct in the labs

?
cds, dvds, internet exercises,
Internet, all the facilities at IPFW Language Lab (audio, video, online assignments or practice software).
7) Please include any additional information that you think might be helpful to long range planning efforts to
improve instructional technology at IPFW
ITS refuses to provide ANY assistance to students using computers off of campus. If we are going to require more advanced
programs for our online courses, this has to be rectified. Make Quicktime easily available on all lab computers (put on desktop.
Make Firefox the default browser. Have hheadphones available in the labs.
My students and I have had trouble using WebCT, and I've had trouble each semester with my IPFW email. That is partly why
I've chosen to do a class blog - so they can access it from anywhere - and use a different email account - so I know my emails
go through and that I receive emails from them. It might help to make sure all classroom computers are equipped with Real
Time, Quick Time, etc. so that all video and audio clips will play from the Internet. When we've tried to download the programs
needed, we can only go so far before we need an administrator to log on and give permission.

- The new stations that were installed in classrooms over the winter holidays are excellent! - WebCT is now too cumbersome to
be practical (older versions weren't) so I use other tech to work around it - There will always be a need for on-the-fly
presentation mechanisms like chalkboards and whiteboards
We need more smart classrooms for multimedia-based classes (e.g. media and film studies classes).
It is sometimes difficult to play video from certain sites. ie youtube.com
we need more (and more reliable)smart classrooms on campus.
Because LRC and Campus Switchboard is not available past 6pm, it's REALLY difficult to have technical assistance during an
evening class (e.i. a computer/LCD projector is not working). More than once I've needed to change the format of my class at
the last minute because of technical problems. Another issue for me has been that students need to miss my class time
(evening) because they're having a simultaneous chat/forum for another class. Finally, this is a comment I received from a
student this semester. In general, for a lecture, students prefer powerpoint presentations to transparencies. Also, they can tell
when a powerpoint presentation has been used in the past and has not been up-dated. So, it's important that faculty use
instructional technology with professional standards because many students are very technologically proficient already.
