As part of the Next Steps in Academic Technology discussion this spring, the Committee for Information Technologies (CIT) is exploring a number of ideas related to academic information technologies, including the laptop program.
In May, the committee will submit a set of recommendations to the Information Technologies Executive Committee (ITEC). Currently, the CIT is gathering comments and suggestions from departments, schools, students and faculty, all of which are vital to the process of developing its final recommendations. Important documents can be found on the Next Steps website.
As recently reported in the Old Gold and Black, the CIT is considering several possible computing options for undergraduates, including a Windows-only based standard, a Mac-only standard, and a blend of these two. The draft CIT subcommittee report reflects this, and addresses all the points as outlined by ITEC. Please keep in mind that the CIT is still discussing the subcommittee draft report.
There are two opportunities available to you to provide input into our continuing discussions:
Your suggestions and comments will assist the CIT in its continuing discussions and help define the future of Reynolda campus academic technologies.
