Strategic Plan for Information and Communication Technology
Durham Technical Community Coll., NC.
Durham Technical Community College engaged in a strategic self-study which focused upon the development of an information and communication technology plan. A Steering Committee was appointed to oversee the self-study process and two principal committees--Instructional Technologies and Administrative Systems--and 12 study groups conducted the major work on the study. The study groups and principal committees collected information, identified needs for information and communication technology, compared alternative solutions, and recommended technology solutions for implementation. An introduction to Durham Technical Community College is provided in chapter 1, as well as an overview of the strategic planning process. Chapter 2 outlines the strengths of the College program. Chapters 3 and 4 are the reports from the principal committees, which summarize the study group reports. Chapter 5 presents the 5-year plan as approved by the Steering Committee and estimated costs of implementing the plan. Chapter 6 describes how the plan will be updated annually and how the technology initiatives will be implemented. Three major components of the plan were established in priority order: (1) a campus network; (2) instructional technology; and (3) administrative systems and applications. Appendices include the following: a list of the members of committees; survey results; inventory of hardware and software; hardware and software standards; a list of the members of the advisory committee; projects and estimated costs for years three through five; and information and technology project teams.
