Technology II: Implementation Planning Guide.
California Community Colleges, Sacramento. Office of the Chancellor.
The California Community Colleges (CCC) are facing a number of challenges, including the explosive use of the Internet, the digital divide, the need for integrating technology into teaching and learning, the impact of Tidal Wave II, and the need to ensure that technology is accessible to persons with disabilities. The CCCs' Technology II Strategic Plan (Tech II) focuses on two major goals: student access to instruction and student support services, and student success in their educational and career goals. The access objective for Tech II is to establish a baseline of access to computers for students, faculty, and staff that includes a technology replacement program for computers and related equipment at all colleges. The Chancellor's Office has given each college $25,000 and each funded district $9,700 in Telecommunications and Technology Infrastructure Program (TTIP) funding to be applied toward Tech II planning. This paper offers a Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) model, which estimates a cost of $3,506 per PC at each community college. TCO includes support and infrastructure expenses. This report puts the minimum baseline standard for student-accessible PCs at one per every 20 FTES. This report includes an Expenditure Plan Total Cost of Ownership worksheet. Definitions for Tech II model are appended. (Author/NB)
