Though many of these numbers reflect in classroom audio visual useage
there has been some noticeable events. These have included videotaping
the Sandhills Writers Conference and the Cullum Lecture Series. We had
a very successful Monday night Film Series. The most visible event has
been the meeting of the Board of Regents on our campus. To meet these
challenges this past year we have purchased new equipment to augment
our services. Media Services has continued to update the overhead projectors
in the classrooms by adding 25 new carts and additional overhead projectors.
For delivery to classrooms we've added 2 new 25" Monitor, 2 VCR's,
and 2 combination TV/VCR's. For use at campus events we've purchased
3 cordless microphones. With the help from the Technology Grant we've
been able to update the Television Studio with two new Studio Camera's.
We're also adding a software based character generator to the Fast Video
Machine. Media Services has entered into joint ventures with various
departments across campus. Most notably we have been working closely
with the School of Education. Together we purchased 8 VHS Cameras and
Tripods for student use. With Biology Department we helped them purchase
new slide projectors and screens. Media Services and Continuing Education
have been working closely on various Distance Learning ventures, including
developing community based programs with National Technology University.
Many other departments have asked Media Services help in planning electronic
classroom and other technology based endeavors. Hardy Hall 2, GSAMS
classroom has been used for 180 hours this past year. Both, meetings
and formal classes have taken place there. The meetings have saved our
Staff and Faculty much travel time. Some of the classes taken place
there have been Engineering classes from Georgia Tech, Licensing classes
for surveyors from Middle Georgia College, and monthly program on Technology
Learning Disabilities with the University of Georgia. Some of these
endeavors have been income producing. We did 180 hours in the GSAMS
Distant Learning Classroom. We received a new satellite dish located
at Continuing Education. We received new overhead projectors and carts
for classrooms throughout the campus. We received 8 new tripods and
video cameras. We received 2 new JVC Television Studio Cameras. We did
many community service projects, which include Richmond Co. & McDuffie
Co. Red Carpet Revue, Safe Homes of Augusta, and Richmond Co. Girl Scouts
Council. Student Assistants have worked over 5,000 hours of service.
We helped Biology Department purchase slide projectors and screens.
