Learning Spaces 2019-20 lab data requirements
July 2, 2018 at 10:50am
Change to lab data requirements for Learning Spaces -
Student Computing Fees (LS-SCF) 2019-20 award cycle
Dear Deans, Associate Deans, Assistant Deans, and Department Chairs,
A change has been made in the data requirements for Learning Spaces funding (previously SCAC). In order to be eligible to receive funds during the 2019 award cycle, units will be required to provide statistics for their student computer lab usage during Fall Semester 2018. Please reference the link at the end of this memo that details the information to be collected for each computer lab.
The collection of this data proceeds from the lab statistics effort that was introduced last year. Most of the colleges participated in this effort and many already have a plan for tracking data in their labs. However, if your college does not already have a lab tracking tool, you are invited to use the software package provided by the University (LabStats). Please be aware that configuring the software may take some pre-work on the part of your lab managers (so that they can implement data collection at the beginning of Fall Semester 2018). If you need assistance in configuring the LabStats software, contact Matt Irsik [801-581-6575, email@example.com] from the Marriott Library (options are available for those who are running virtual desktop environments as well).
Thank you again for your cooperation in this information-gathering initiative. We hope that you are finding the data useful as you make decisions about how and where to allocate resources for your student computer labs.
