Convenient computing tools on campus are now a reality.
- Email and Web wide-spread tools
- Use of email is wide-spread and common. Server crashes
now have a big impact. Web is used more and more to disseminate
information for teaching as well as administrative information
- LAN access has become a "necessity"
- Access to the LAN has become so widely used for students
and faculty that the crash of a server causes major problems.
Faculty want to use more and more applications that need to be
installed on the LAN's and that are available to students on campus.
No allowance is made for students off-campus.
- Usenet (world-wide bulletin board) Access
- Access to thousands of world-wide bulletin boards is
setup, including "comp.lang.*" groups. Seton Hall specific
discussion groups can be requested "per class"
- CAT Starts
- The Center for Academic Technology is added as a resource
for faculty to ensure that faculty have a convenient contact to
learn the new, rapidly developing IT tools available to them. CAT
runs regular workshops on creating homepages and the use of many
other computing tools.
Focus switches from LAN availability to LAN reliability and
questions remain about access to applications from off-campus
and dorm rooms.
