Notes from ITS Council - 8/22/18

  • New Items
    • Nobel and Nansen technology improvements   
      • A request has been made to improve the technology in these two rooms in the Dahl Centennial Union.  ITS staff will work with others to determine the configuration of technology that works best and to establish a timeframe for the work.
    • RFP vs quote for telephone system
      • As the university considers a new telephone system, an RFP will be issued to vendors due to the anticipated scope and cost of the project.
    • September staff meetings
      • Diane Gossman was contacted in regard to a brief ITS topic for the September all-staff meetings. We discussed potential ideas.
    • ITS Weekly plans
      • What is the best way to communicate with the campus community?  What part does ITS Weekly play, and what part should the blog play?  Patty Livingood may have access to stats from Mailchimp to know what the readership of ITS Weekly has been.  Mark Franz will look into this topic and how it fits into broader college internal communication plans.
  • Returning Items
    • MISO Survey
      • A meeting is now on the calendar to talk about the questions and what the next steps are.
    • MS Campus Agreement due on Sept. 7th
      • Mark Franz has questions about the different plans that might be available.  Diane Gossman will bring him into the email conversation with Sheri York at ComputerLand to ask these questions.
    • Volleyball Camera/Software
      • Testing of where exactly to position the camera will hopefully happen on Thursday.
    • GLBA Compliance Review Questionnaire
      • Questions were raised about what the scope to be used in answering the questions should be.  Adam Forsyth will provide several example questions from the questionnaire and the scope questions that they raise.
    • Cable TV
      • Communication hasn’t gone out yet because the project isn’t finished.  Facilities will coordinate the timing of the communicate.
    • Opening web page
      • Mark Franz talked to Corey Landstrom and he thought a good start page for lab computers may be the campus events page.  Mark will discuss with Travis Huinker to make sure the change does not skew web use analytics.
