Transcript of Academic Technology Roadmap

The Smart Classroom Advisory Group will be comprised of Administrative Personnel, Faculty, Staff and Students as identified by Directors, Deans and the Student Senate. This group will meet with the purpose of identifying, discussing and recommending improvements, changes, and/or the addition of new academic technologies, resources and configurations to the technology classroom learning spaces. The efforts of this group will help ensure the development of a transformative educational experience for University of Northern Colorado educators and learners. University of Washington

0  3 SCC Staff (1 additional pending)

 79 Classrooms per FTE Staff (59.3) Maintain Student Budget FY 14-FY 18:
Option 1: Reduce the number of hours worked by computer lab consultants.
-This will allow us to maintain existing wages and compensate for the potential minimum wage/employee performance increases.

Decrease Student Budget FY14-FY 18:
Option 1: Re-aligning Lab Consultants to a "building wide" or "centralized" model, not per lab.
- Lab Utilization Report to identify spaces to decrease consultant staffing
Option 2: Eliminate all Lab Consultants

If either Option 1 or 2 are implemented we will maintain existing service and support for students through the following:
-Establish Lab SLA's for service and support (AT-Lab Important / AT-Lab Severe)
-Proactively Monitor Lab Printers for paper fill and toner issues (Pharos)
-Utilize existing Lab Manager to provide twice daily lab evaluations
-Provide phones in promintent locations with direct dial to TSC
-Utilize shared student resources: TSC/DST/SC to provide support following Fall and Spring term opening months. Reliable
-Infrastructure and technologies will be consistent
-Establish effective maintenance & build windows
-Utilize the proactive maintenance and control resources

- Innovation/Prototype Labs
-Interaction with Educause and Benchmark Schools
-Understand and Implement ideas and recommendations from the Advisory Group

-Standardization following saturation
-Well defined support processes and communications
-Analog to Digital VISION Our team will work diligently to provide multiple dynamic, innovative and well maintained and supported learning environments enriched with the technical resources needed by faculty, staff and students to ensure academic success. We believe this can be achieved by emphasizing and incorporating innovative opportunities into our current model by implementing the following:

College approved standards: Utilizing current configurations and through our work with the Classroom Advisory Group we will begin to identify the needs of each college and ensure these expectations are met.

Develop Innovation/Prototype Labs: Provide one (1) Innovation Lab per college using under-utilized computer lab locations. These labs will allow for the test/pilot of varying technologies either pre-existing or new.
- iPad/Tablet capable rooms - Wireless projection
- Synchronous Delivery/Live Stream (Collaborate, Skype, Facebook)
- ResponseWare (Clickers) -Flipped Classrooms
-Lecture Capture

Develop SLA's for the support of Computer Labs

Implement & Enable Streaming Media

Develop Synchronous learning utility accessible environments -Simple, intuitive, well-rounded and relatively inexpensive
-Limited innovation opportunities
-Analog technology
-XGA resolution
-10 button interface -Intuitive, extensive control and functionality
-Complex (higher maintenance), expensive, limited innovation opportunities
-Analog technology
-XGA technology
-15" touch panel presents limited space/tech Digital A/V technology is the evolution of content delivery and equipment control, and is required to display today's digitally protected content. HDMI (High Definition Media Interface) provides a HD quality video, multi-channel audio, network and control signals via a single cable over limited distances.
HDBaseT leverages existing Cat5e/Cat6 cabling infrastructure to transmit audio, video, network and control signals over a single cable over long distances.
Gives students ability to access all the cloud content they are accustomed to being able to on laptops, tablets, smart phones, etc.
EDID (Electronic Display Identification) Allows media sources and transmitters to identify end-point display capabilities and taylor outputs to match for best viewing performance.
DRM/HDCP (Digital Rights Management/HighDef Digital Content Protection) provides owners confidence against non-specified use and content piracy.
Verifies right of use - Provides appropriate restriction of use (no use, time limit, etc.)
Allows "Intellectual property" policies to be created and enforced 4 year saturation project will be complete in FY13 *New digital classrooms are now considered "Smart" classrooms due to the addition of touch panels (and associated control granularity). "High Tech" classrooms include button pads only. Next Generation High Tech to Smart Classroom Learning Spaces Digitally Compliant Infrastructure
Feature-rich additions:
-Ability to combine and utilize various campus technologies.
-Zero maintenance lamp-less widescreen high definition projectors
-24" Widescreen HD touch panels
-Simple, intuitive icon-driven interfaces are easier to use, maximizing faculty's use and the student's overall experience
-Virtual pages allow minimal interface clutter by expanding display options as necessary
-Robust and reliable desktop computers (previously laptop computers). -Simple, direct, reliable
-Very limited innovation opportunities
-Analog technology
-XGA (1024*768) resolution

Wireless projection - $1500
Flipped Classroom - $7500
Video Conferencing - $8000-$15000
AppleTV iPad interface - $150 Innovation/Prototype Learning Spaces Cutting-edge technology requires increased time for development and support. Innovation/Prototype learning spaces will provide faculty schedulable classroom space for advancing and honing technology-centric teaching methods, while providing support staff the schedule flexibility needed for total support and development. Additional Options: Room candidates will be identified via usage statistics from SCCM, LabStats and Classroom Advisory Group participant input. Funding for these initiatives can be found within the existing budget through savings from improved equipment reliability and increased efficiencies of support. FY14 through FY18 estimated budget for classroom improvements and infrastructure upgrades *The data presented does not identify room types or hours spent in configuration, build and/or maintenance. We intend on improving our existing support and build models by more effectively and efficiently using current staff, redefining processes, utilizing the professional development options and working collaboratively within the matrix of our Faculty, Staff and Student support teams.
