Requester Name: Wilma Maynard/Sheryl Ballenger
Project Description: Purchase three computers for the resource area located in the Student Support Services area on the Floyd campus.
Suggested Date for Implementation: Aug 01, 2010
From a student perspective: How would this project provide additional student access to technological resources?
This project would provide students with disabilities three additional computers in the resource room of the Student Support Services office. I have seen a great increase this summer of students requesting accommodations our computers are used for these students and loaded with additional software that is accessed by these students. Also the three Mac computers that we have had and are using have experienced problems during the last year and have been non-operational for more than 50% of the time.

How would this project broaden or enhance the quality of the student's academic experience through the proposed technology?
1. The addition of three computers would make available to the students seeking accommodations additional computer access which is projected to increase this fall. 2. Campus wide students access our computers from time to time, our area is used as a student computer use area. 3. The computers in the resource room are also used by the counseling and WIA staff for evaluations as students seek career and academic advice.

How would this project integrate technology into coursework?
1. Students with disabilities use these computers loaded with specialized software to complete test and assignments. 2. Students with disabilities use the computers in the resource loaded with specialized software to complete research assignments to access the internet as well as scholarly periodicals. 3. Students may access on-line classes or assignments in the resource room.

From a faculty/staff perspective: Will other departments be involved with this project? If so, please describe.
Yes, the resource room is used by the Counseling and Career department, the Disability area and the WIA co-coordinator.

Has any part of this project previously been funded by STF?


If you answered yes, please describe:
Not to my knowledge.

Costs: Estimated Cost of Project: $1200.00 ?

Are there any related or additional costs associated with the project? If so, please describe:
Possible cords, computer mouse and cords/wires and locks to secure each computer.

Are there any ongoing costs such as maintenance fees? If so, please describe: There should be nothing other than normal maintance.
