Instructional Technology Fund

Faculty, staff, and administrators have two main sources for software and hardware needs: the Office of Information Systems (OIS) or using the Instructional Technology Fund request form.

Software Requests

The Office of Information Systems obtains licenses for a number of different software programs on the college's shared system. These include, but are not limited to, Microsoft Office, Adobe Acrobat, and Contribute. Requests for college-supported software should go through your division dean, who will communicate those needs to the Office of Information Systems.

The Instructional Technology Fund can be used for purchasing more specialized software. Computers in each campus Batten Faculty Development Center have many software programs installed. You may request specific software for use in your school office or for use in your campus Batten Center.

When requesting software, please use the Instructional Technology Fund request form.  On the form you will be asked to provide some information about the software and a brief explanation of why you need it.

  • Requests are limited to $500 for software and $300 for hardware.  Exceptions may be approved by the TLTC.
  • Faculty, staff, and administrators most commonly request web authoring tools and Adobe Writer, so Adobe CS5, which features Dreamweaver, Flash, and Adobe software, is in most cases automatically approved.
  • Software cannot be purchased for personal use.
  • Software cannot be purchased to outfit a campus lab.

Hardware Requests

The Office of Information Systems handles requests for new computer units or other hardware. Such requests should go through your division dean, who will communicate those needs to the Office of Information Systems.  

The Instructional Technology Fund can be used for hardware purchases, such as headsets for voice recognition/speech-to-text applications, and wireless presenters for labs and MPS units.  Recurring costs for these purchases must be absorbed by other budgets, not the Instructional Technology Fund. When requesting hardware, please use the Instructional Technology Fund request form.

Campus Batten Faculty Development Centers are equipped with scanners and color printers. Notebook computers are also available for check-out through each center.
