Lab Space

-- Awaiting update on shared space in HOL (what about staffing?)

-- The space will likely be used by students doing short video production for English courses this semester. Lauren's OL team has also expressed interest in having a space for collaborative data work, and Carolyn's team has used it for training.

-- Tech refresh? There is some question of who should do this. Hard to justify major spending on computer upgrades at current usage. Any interim steps? (New Windows 8 Tablets?) Surface RT?

    • 2 Macs are in good shape -- (Have iMovie), David Macfarlane might be willing to take a look)
    • ACTION ITEM (Allen can see about disabling Deep Freeze); Brian will explore getting PCs refreshed (perhaps by contacting lab support, removing ghost image -- Marlies)
      • look into a PC based video editing suite for 2 or 3 PCs or Surface RT
    • Get an inventory of video software available from Gurjit

-- Any other useful gear we should be looking at? (Allen can look into renting gear instead)

Activities

-- Jon suggests branding some of the workshops we have been doing (http://trusoundcamp.net, http://truvideocamp.net, etc...) as "Presented by the Innovation Lab"

-- The Literature of Utopia pilots went extremely well, see:

-- A WordPress Sandbox - for LearnDash WP LMS, etc... -- Brian can move on this

-- Badge server for Mozilla open badges

Other issues:

Media Team, angle... (priorities, exploration of innovation technologies)

The Kumu Wiki has launched. Hopefully some existing staff time can be allocated to this, though progress on this has been slow.

A work-study position to support WordPress and MediaWiki?

Brian is working on: BCCampus "Toward Open Education" (TOE) initiative, and an associated https://www.bc.net working group on Collaborative Technologies for Open Education. As well, been tasked to set up a sub-committee for TRU's Instructional Development and Support Committee (IDSC) to Learning and Teaching Systems Advisory Committee (LTSAC) -- pending approval and feedback from IDSC, et al... Make-up and final terms of reference are still being determined.

Related to above, Brian hopes to set up a meeting/workshop with collaborators on KUMU Wiki and BCCampus TOE at TRU sometime in the next month or two.
