MS Office 2010 – This was the primary topic of discussion
- The consensus was to make the move to MS Office 2010 for spring quarter 2011 in all computer labs (only) on the ACS network. A final decision should come from IL.
- The move to MS Office 2010 would happen in all labs on the ACS network and would therefore impact all classes in the ACS labs.
- The Project Management classes would like to make the move to MS Project 2010 ASAP.
- Departments must request books for spring quarter during the 1st or 2nd week of winter quarter, therefore a final decision to move must be made by then.
- Rod Halverson and Jessica Wallace will contact IL and try to get on the agenda during the week on 11/28/10 to let them know about the need to make final a decision on MS Office 2010 soon.
- Windows SharePoint Services is needed to use the more advanced collaboration tools in MS Office 2010.
- We will not be running Windows SharePoint Services.
- Concern: Students can no longer get MS Office 2007 for home use.
- Concern: Some compatibility issues have been seen when a student saves an MS Office 2010 file at home, does not save it in an older file format and tries to open it on campus.
- Contact Help Desk if MS Office 2010 is needed on your office computer.
- Contact the TRC if you need MS Office 2010 for your home computer. You will need to know if your operating system is 32 or 64 bit.
- TIMC requests are due February 18th
- ACS is looking at putting in requests to replace the student computers in the Library Learning Commons and ALD 104
Virtualization Proof of Concept
During summer quarter 2011, ACS is looking to do a virtualization proof of concept. We will likely target one of the ALD labs.
During the winter and spring breaks the ALD labs will have their carpet replaced. We currently have duct tape holding the carpets together.
