question: do you get an increase to call desk because VCL is "different"? answer: no, same or less. #E10_SESS067 #educause10

Majority of the time, students have less computing capacity on their own machine than blade server will provide. #E10_SESS067 #educause10

the GMU VCL is looking to move from AD/LDAP to Shibboleth for inter-campus usage. [possible BlackBoard tie-in?] #E10_SESS067 #educause10

Discussion about software licensing challenges: software per device or per user? [similar to RIAA debate] #E10_SESS067 #educause10

GMU "Collaborative Learning Hub" -> CLUB #E10_SESS067 #educause10

#E10_SESS067 up to $1M construction costs for a 100 seat computer lab. Metric: Range of $3500-$10000 per seat in construction? #educause10

Looking for insight... "Alternatives to traditional computer labs" #educause10 #E10_SESS067

#E10_SESS067 Resources added to Educause 2010 session: "Alternatives to Traditional Campus Computing Labs."

#E10_SESS067 Looking forward 2 discussing alternatives to traditional computer labs next week at this time (well, Pacific time) in Anaheim.
