Project Title: Classroom Technology
Award number: 0310
Project Leader: Melissa Stotz on behalf of Brian Abraham (retired)
Report Period: Final
In this proposal, we received funding to support the services already started. This includes the full-time salary for the Classroom Technology Manager, Melissa Stotz and the salaries of the students who support and maintain the classroom equipment. In addition, we received funding to expand and enhance the level of Classroom Technology services available by adding an additional full-time staff member. Gary Franz, Classroom Technology Specialist, works in the evenings, which expands the number of hours we can provide assistance to instructors, and allows better access to the classrooms for troubleshooting and maintenance. In addition, we received funding for replacement supplies and equipment, and to add four additional Multimedia Carts.
Progress toward Milestones:
By July 31 all of the student employees were hired and trained. All of the classroom equipment was purchased and installed prior to August 30.
By August 30 the new full-time staff member was hired and working. The Tech Fee Committee was updated with a six month progress report.
NDSU needs continued funding to support the Classroom Technology services to maintain the multimedia carts, instrumented classrooms, and overhead projectors. Other services include training faculty, staff, and students in how to operate the equipment; handling emergencies, and installations.
We are currently working on a plan for the unspent funds.
