Information Technology Council

Minutes for the Meeting of September 8, 1997

Members present: L. Colaw, B. Dauffenbach, F. Durso, B. Mason, L. Portwood, T. Ragan, W. Stolt, B. Swisher, D. Trytten.


  1. Members were introduced and a brief discussion of the goals and structure of the ITC was given. Members were encouraged to review the subcommittee structure and join committees with missions that interest them.
  2. Bruce Mason reviewed some items of interest to the ITC that occurred over the summer. This included the movement of the Instructional Services Center to DCTS, an effort for electronic registration, efforts at the library for electronic journals, the opening of the OU web server, and the closing of "guest" accounts on the OU modem pool. The coordination of the ISC and colleges was urged.
  3. Lee Colaw reported on the current status of DCTS. This included:
  4. Bob Dauffenbach presented the results of last semester's faculty survey. Preliminary review indicated this shows needs in instructional technology. It did not seem to get information regarding research computing needs. This will be discussed at the next meeting.
  5. The need for campus wide planning was discussed. This will require the standing committees to review their areas of responsibility to determine needs, goals, and processes for meeting these. The instructional and administrative committees are already working on these issues. It was suggested that the research committee be involved with the research council because of their history in dealing with these issues. A charge for the committees will be written and discusses at the next meeting.
