1 Technology in General Assignment (GA) Classrooms Andre Smith Director of Classroom Support Services OIS

2 I. Background

3 2005-10-20 GA Classroom Technology 3 General Assignment (GA) Classrooms Those classrooms that are the responsibility of central units, e.g. OIS  Candidates for UTF funding Not those classrooms and labs that are the responsibility of colleges and departments  Candidates for CFT funding GA classrooms require technology to support modern teaching and learning environments

4 2005-10-20 GA Classroom Technology 4 Technology Requirements A room requires technology if even only 1 class per day in the room requires technology Many constraints exist when scheduling rooms  Time, days  Physical layout  Technology CCHE mandates stringent limits on the number/size of classrooms  This presents a daunting scheduling problem

11 III. 5-Yr. Refresh Analysis

12 2005-10-20 GA Classroom Technology 12 Age of Projectors on July 1, 2005 No. Small No. 2 Small's No. Medium No. Large 0-1 years80211 1-2 years7131 2-3 years6135 3-4 years4062 4-5 years6061 > 5 years2123 Totals3332223

13 2005-10-20 GA Classroom Technology 13 Age of Doc Cams on July 1, 2005 Age No. 0-1 years 5 1-2 years 6 2-3 years 11 3-4 years 7 4-5 years 9 > 5 years 13 Total 51 Some MEDIUM rooms do not have doc cams, and need them to be “standard.”

14 2005-10-20 GA Classroom Technology 14 Refresh Cycles (Replace Devices) Computer projectors and document cameras should be refreshed every 5 years to avoid obsolescence  Otherwise there are compatibility problems with current laptops  5 years is probably “stretching it” – e.g. Clark projectors New technology has  Better performance -> sharper image Brighter projection Better optics Better electronics (more pixels, faster refresh rates)  Added functionality Remote monitoring and control

16 2005-10-20 GA Classroom Technology 16 Observation We have been first adding new rooms to meet immediate need, in favor of refreshing technology in rooms  Consequently, we have not been keeping up with refresh cycles “At the current rate of upgrading new rooms, we are barely keeping up with the demand for new classrooms with technology.” – Lorrie Morse, Classroom Scheduling

17 2005-10-20 GA Classroom Technology 17 Per Room Cost of Refresh DeviceRefresh Cost Doc Cam$3,000 Small Projector$2,700 2 Small Projectors $5,400 Medium Projector $3,200 Large Projector$5,200

18 2005-10-20 GA Classroom Technology 18 Refresh Exercise In the following slides, a plan to get on track with the 5-year refresh cycles for projectors and doc cams will be presented  Number vs. year  Cost  Does not “backfill” MEDIUM rooms with doc cams With $157,000/yr available, the difference in each year can be used to build new rooms  Historically, need ~10 new rooms per year

23 2005-10-20 GA Classroom Technology 23 Conclusion Our past emphasis has been on upgrading to new rooms with technology Consequently, we are currently lagging in room technology refreshes; to get on the 5- year cycle, in FY 05-06:  21 rooms require projector upgrades We are planning to upgrade only 12  22 rooms require document camera upgrades We are planning to upgrade only 5

24 2005-10-20 GA Classroom Technology 24 Progress at ~$157,000/yr.

25 2005-10-20 GA Classroom Technology 25 Rooms that Can Be Added with Remaining Funds

26 2005-10-20 GA Classroom Technology 26 Total Smart Rooms Existing

27 2005-10-20 GA Classroom Technology 27 Total Rooms with Doc Cams

28 2005-10-20 GA Classroom Technology 28 Observation If we meet the 5-year refresh cycle, we can not maintain the number of new room upgrades that is needed to meet demand To equip all 154 GA classrooms with projectors and doc cams (LARGE and MEDIUM only) will require about 12.6 years at a funding rate of $157k/yr., i.e. be done in ~FY 17-18
