50th Anniversary Celebration (BRADFORD)
The President’s Cabinet discussed ideas as to how and when to celebrate CVCC’s 50th Anniversary. Mike will establish a committee to decide which direction to take the celebration.
Recommendations from the E2IT (LIGHTFOOT)
David read the following recommendations from the E2IT Committee:
Discontinue use of transparency projectors effective with the beginning of the fall ‘16 semester and replace the functionality of the transparency projectors with document cameras as required.
a. The decision will be communicated via email and in the daily bulletin during the spring ‘16 term. The communication will inform the faculty members of the need to communicate the need for a document camera to IT before the end of the spring ‘16 term to allow time to procure the document cameras.
Begin the discontinuance of VHS playback effective the beginning of the fall ‘16 term.
a. This discontinuance includes:
a. Communicating this to faculty via email and in the Daily Bulletin during the spring ‘16 term.
b. Identifying the VHS titles in the library and determining which titles warrant replacement in digital form. This should be completed during FY ‘16 and the new digital content purchased prior to the beginning of the fall ‘16 semester.
c. Since many of our classrooms have VHS/DVD players and we can’t afford to convert all the classrooms to digital next fiscal year, the recommendation includes leaving the VHS playback capability in the rooms until the units no longer function or the room is upgraded to digital.
d. The communication to faculty should state that VHS playback is no longer a CVCC standard. If the classroom has VHS playback, the faculty member is welcome to use it, but it is no longer a service that can be requested.
The College currently licenses LastPass for all faculty and staff. The recommendation is to reduce licenses to only those that desire to use it which will reduce licensing cost.
