Goucher College Information Technology:
Earlier this month, we asked you for your help, insights, and opinion about technology at Goucher. Why? We want to be sure that we continue to adapt campus technology and support to meet the needs of student inside and outside the classroom. We also want you to know that your opinion matters. Why? Because Goucher students provide great suggestions.
This summer, Information Technology will be looking into expanding many of our printing services. We hope to be able to allow Web Print to work from the Goucher Visitor network, and to enable Swipe-to-Print to work on printers in other academic buildings beyond the Athenaeum.
In the beginning of the 2013-2014 academic year, the Center for Teaching Learning and Technology (CTLT) discounted the lending policy that allowed students to borrow equipment. This policy was changed primarily because of problems getting equipment returned on time if at all. For equipment that was returned we often found there were missing cables or chargers that made the devices useless to future students. The collection was also aging and required a good deal of repair. Currently, the CTLT circulates a large collection of iPad minis to professors who use them for various classroom assignments. The iPads are highly versatile and allow us to make the biggest impact for our investment.
