2001-2004 Technology Readiness Plan

Based on this very tangible need, C&C (during the 99/00 budget cycle) prepared a detailed plan for moving forward with a comprehensive classroom technology upgrade. Highlights from this plan are as follows:

  • A detailed inventory was prepared, on a room-by-room basis, of all classroom technology deployed in UCR's general assignment classrooms.
  • Based on equipment age, faculty use, manual delivery of equipment, etc., C&C prepared a detailed proposal for upgrading all 50 classrooms over four years. This plan WOULD NOT be acted up on without specific input, guidance, and approval from a faculty advisory committee.
  • C&C prepared classroom technology "profiles" and incorporated these profiles into a renewal and replacement plan. There are four profiles (A, B, C, and X); each profile is made up of a combination of various classroom technologies appropriate to the size, use, and physical attributes of the classroom.
  • All of UCR's general assignment classrooms were assigned a profile and were scheduled for upgrades to that profile within four years.

A comprehensive equipment list was prepared and used as a "technical standard" for the renewal and replacement plan. This document includes preferred vendors, models, and technical specifications. The equipment list will also be presented to faculty as a "straw man" for input, advice, and guidance. However, once the standards document is approved, all technology deployed to campus general assignment classrooms will follow the agreed upon standards.
