E2IT Committee Minutes
The E2IT Committee met on Tuesday, November 19, 2013 at 1 pm in Room 5209. The following members were present: John McCullough, Ed McGee, Jim Bell, Cathy Sanders, Barbara Soldivieri, Shannon McDermott, William Perez, William Osborne, and Cindy Wallin.
John McCullough called the meeting to order. Minutes were approved as presented.
Committee reports: None given.
John McCullough presented a motion to confirm a protocol for governing the online voting process for those items requiring a decision between meetings. The motion was discussed, but due to time, a motion was made, seconded, and approved that we table the discussion until the next meeting.
Jim Bell moved that the committee recommend the purchase of 3 wide screen touch monitors for the 3 IST faculty members in order to adequately meet the instructional needs of IST students. Ed McGee seconded the motion. After discussion, the motion was approved.
Will Perez presented a motion to proceed with a Request for Proposal (REP) to re-design the college website. The motion was seconded and passed. The current proposed re-design is for the creation of both a public-use site and a faculty/staff site. Target completion date is October 17, 2014.
Since there had been some questions about the access, use and logistics of the Intranet portal where the E2IT minutes and other information is located, John reviewed how to access the site.
John McCullough noted that the College Governance Council (CGC) in its last meeting had endorsed our recommendation for the implementation of Office 365 for faculty, but had amended it to include free access of Office 365 for our student body. Most of the discussion centered on the logistical implementation of the product for students, which, according to William Osborne, is impossible at this time due to domain issues. After further discussion, the motion was made, seconded, and approved that the E2IT Committee sends the proposal back to the CGC as two separate proposals.
Meeting adjourned at 2:01 pm.
The next meeting is January 21, 2014 at 1 pm in Room 5209.
Cindy Wallin, Recorder
