Summary of Computer Usage and Inventory of Computer Utilization in Curriculum, FY 1988-89.
Tennessee Univ., Chattanooga. Center of Excellence for Computer Applications.
In addition to data on FY 1988-89, the 12 tables that constitute the major part of this report on computer utilization at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga (UTC) provide comparisons among the 10 annual inventories that have been conducted, and demonstrate growth patterns over the 10-year period. The first five tables organize data by academic department from 1976 through 1989, including: (1) the number of courses using computers; (2) the number of faculty who use computers; (3) the primary method of using computers in courses--e.g., computer assisted instruction (CAI), simulation, word processing; (4) relationships of computing to courses (i.e., integral, supplementary, or incidental); and (5) the amount of computer usage per student per semester. Table 6 records the types of computer hardware used in curricula by individual academic departments during 1988. The connect and CPU times for accounts on various mainframe systems from 1984 to 1989 are reported in Tables 7, 8, 9, 10, and 11. Table 12, which appears for the first time in this report, presents a detailed report on the usage of microcomputer laboratories by individual academic disciplines for the spring semester of 1989.
