Report period: Mid-year
This proposal was submitted on behalf of the NDSU faculty. The proposal is the standard Spring request for Technology Fee funding to increase the number of NDSU instrumented classrooms. Based on requests submitted by faculty, and evaluated and prioritized by the CITPG Classroom Technology Subcommittee, this proposal requests funding for instrumentation in 16 classrooms.
Note: All on-going support funding for the proposed expansion of the instrumented classroom pool, as well as all support for existing instrumented classroom and related classroom technology, was requested in the Spring 2005 TFAC proposal entitled “Ongoing Funding for Student Technology Support and Services.”
8 complete instrumented classrooms were installed
4 partially-instrumented classrooms were installed
3 Hitachi interactive panels were purchased, evaluated, and installed
Sonic Shock security alarms were purchased and installed
Purchased and installed additional necessary technology to enhance classroom technology resources (i.e, wireless microphone added to classroom; PRS timers purchased and installed)
$123,350.00 (started with a balance of $50,138.00 - totaling $173,488.00)
This fund started with a balance of $50,138. This was a result of two initiatives (one supported by Provost Schnell and one supported by TFAC) in support of classroom technologies combined into the same fund.
