COMPUTER LABS MIGRATING TO WINDOWS 2000
While we anticipate major gains in stability and security, we also recognize that there may be problems with individual software packages running under the new operating system.
We will be sending out survey forms to department heads via campus mail this week. Please distribute this survey to any of the faculty and staff in your department who use the PC teaching labs so that we can determine which software packages are a necessary part of this migration. Also, please help us gather this information in a timely manner by collecting and returning all completed surveys no later than March 23, 2001.
Faculty and staff who plan to use the PC
teaching labs are responsible for testing and verifying that
all necessary functions and features of a given software package
will work under Windows 2000. A test machine running Windows
2000 and all of the current lab software is available in the
Learning Technology Center (Library 113). This room is open and
available during regular Library hours, including evenings and
Note that the survey includes all software currently available in our PC teaching labs. ITSS will consider buying new software packages as well. Please use our web form to request new software.
In conclusion, we are asking you and your
faculty for two things:
Anyone that has questions may direct them to Jason Davis, Computer Lab Coordinator, via phone (ext.8782) or email (jdavis).
Thank you very much for your help.
