This plan for the Community College of San Francisco (CCSF) documents the steps necessary to foster the appropriate use of current and emerging information technologies to systematically integrate educational technology into the curriculum and into student services. Following an executive summary, Part One introduces the plan, including a mission statement, scope, premise, goals, and student outcomes. Part Two provides background information, including the state of the institution, the purpose of education technology, faculty interest, and student interests. Part Three offers the plan, which includes objectives for the following goals: (1) provide the physical infrastructure and technical support necessary to make education technology accessible and useful for faculty and students; (2) increase opportunities for faculty and students to use education technology; and (3) develop a system for continued planning for, evaluation of, and ongoing funding for education technology. Part Four presents the implementation timeline for the period between fall 1996 and fall 1998. Appendixes include: needs for information technology at CCSF not covered in the report; basic assumptions of the plan; a detailed inventory of the institution's technology resources; responses to two surveys measuring faculty interest in education technology; a discussion of the role of and training for student assistants; video production, transmission and distance learning efforts; implications and examples of educational technology; and a glossary of terms.
