Master classroom and computer lab proposals are limited to $100,000. Proposals for discipline specific equipment are limited to $200,000. Department/units are limited to one proposal per category. Guidelines are provided on the Technology Access Web Site.

Provide a brief explanation describing the proposal, the need for this proposal for instruction, the use of the requested technology by students in instructional activities. Include the number of undergraduate or graduate students that will directly benefit annually and the methodology for calculating this number. If this is a collaborative request among departments, identify departments, classes affected, etc. Please limit description to no more than 250 words. Filemaker does not permit formatting of text, so tabular data is not appropriate.

Example: The Instructional Technology Support Center provides students with University-wide access to 92 computers in three labs and a graduate multimedia development center. In 2004, student walk-in visits to the labs totaled 16,681 [18% Basic and Applied, 8% Business, 23% Education/Behavioral Science, 13% Liberal Arts, 14% Mass Communication, and 25% undeclared]. Faculty from four colleges scheduled 109 training sessions, benefiting 2592 students. Twenty-four Education classes were scheduled, enrolling 576 students. Our computer facilities are controlled using three Dell servers (file, print, and DHCP) that are over five years old. They are slow and crash frequently, causing domain and printer failures. We propose purchasing one Dell server to replace these aging servers. Students using LRC 101B are having difficulty multitasking due to insufficient RAM on the 25 lab computers. We propose installing a 1 GB module to upgrade each computer. The graduate multimedia center offered video-editing capability, digital cameras, workshops, and individual consultation during 523 student visits. Students have requested that we (1) replace the centerís broken slide scanner, (2) replace the aging monitors (over five years old) at the four multimedia development stations, and (3) install a large format color printer for printing out media for the presentations.
