It is very unusual for any undertaking to go exactly to plan. Projects are no exception. By the nature of a project, more information is being uncovered all the time which can affect the progress of the project. It is important to monitor the degree to which the plan is being followed, and to take appropriate action if the project is deviating significantly from the plan. It is equally important to keep stakeholders up-to-date on those issues which impact them.
Therefore, checkpoints are held throughout the project at weekly intervals and provide the mechanism for monitoring and controlling the day-to-day work on the project. Performance indicators are captured and plans are updated frequently.
- Communications Plan (coming soon)
The Faculty Advisory Committee (FAC) conducted eight focus sessions to identify what faculty required in terms of classroom technology. This was done to gather preliminary information regarding use of the Student Technology Fee on instructional technology upgrades. All university faculty, adjunct instructors, and graduate teaching assistants were invited. Twenty-nine faculty members and nine staff members attended the session.

The Video and Audio Capture and Streaming Sub-Group of the Classroom Technology Upgrade Project are asking faculty and classroom technology support staff across all University of Arizona campuses to review and offer feedback. We are now moving forward reviewing capture and streaming products. Our goal is to recommend products for centralized implementation as soon as possible. Your insights are valuable to us and will help direct our continuing research and product review.
