Digital Media Campuses: The Transition from Word Processing to Digital Media (Campus Technology 2011)

Digital Media Campuses: The Transition from Word Processing to Digital Media (Campus Technology 2011)

Over the past ten years, the face of the campus computer lab started to transition from one that filled a need to surf the Internet and type research papers to being the one-stop-shop for digital media. For many institutions, this transition has come easily, while others were met with challenges. At Loyola University Chicago, Digital Media Services has a strong emphasis on integrating resources for our faculty, staff, and students at an institutional level. This session will highlight how Loyola transitioned a number of its computer labs from smaller pocket lab locations to powerhouse Digital Media Labs. This session will also detail recent developments with partnership projects such as igNation, which was presented at the Campus Technology 2010 conference.

Social networking has infiltrated nearly 95% of all respondents.   IT has altered a number of it’s communication approaches to “reach” it’s students, as well as providing new ways to collaborate in courses. Increasing numbers of students are participating in online courses.   Nearly 50% of students felt that IT resources were not always available when needed, leading to apprehension with technology.

    session or to download additional resources, please visit: https://connect.luc.edu/ct2011 WHAT ABOUT OUR LABS? 32 To identify what type of lab installation would be appropriate for your environment, consider the following questions:   How many students already have computers on campus with them? As new academic years begin, how has the number changed?   What application requirements are identified by your institution?   Why, when and how often are your locations utilized?   What is the ratio of students to workstations?   What are the hardware requirements for applications and academic programs?

Session time has increased, while overall login counts have decreased in our Digital Media Labs – in comparison with our Multimedia Labs which have slight increases each year.   Students, faculty and staff may not necessarily purchase advantage technologies and digital media – but will borrow and integrate it in to their curriculum with minor guidance or intervention. The ELP has been a successful program at Loyola with increased demand that grows by factors of 2 to 3 each year and positive feedback during focus groups and surveys.   Students and faculty will work together in a training/learning environment for workshops and education.

If equipment is not available, nor are the clients. Demand for this program continues each year, with requests for new hardware. With this growth, proper planning, end of life, and budgeting must be identified.   When possible, provide transparency on processes and procedures. While there are a number of areas that cannot be transparent for our end users, clearly identify policies and procedures.   Students, as well as staff, are seeking professional development and education opportunities in educational technology. While not necessarily a revenue stream, an easy way to integrate training on software and hardware is through a variety of 30-minute short courses on a specific topic set. The following two slides are educational wallpapers that are included in our campus labs.
