Serving Students Best - Using a Confluence Of Technologies To Streamline the On-Boarding Of New Students At MCC
William Wagoner, Director, Network Systems and Applications Development, and Steve Kuhaneck, Technology Integration Specialist
To address high student demands during crunch registration times for account activation and class schedule printing, MCC created a touch screen kiosk system located in many areas across campuses.  The system included custom web pages that integrated programs for networking, email, and student record.  These kiosks can be reengineered for different uses as the semantic demands for quick access change.

PaperCut – Print Management That Doesn’t Hurt  (too much)
William Wagoner, Director, Network Systems and Applications Development, and Steve Kuhaneck, Technology Integration Specialist,  Ann Penwarden, Asst. Director, Libraries
MCC has transitioned from “relatively” free printing for students (pay-for-print in libraries, free in Labs) to a college-wide managed print quota system using PaperCut software.  As part of the MCC Sustainability initiative, this solution reduced waste printing, managed web printing for laptops, and offered on-demand/on-site printing.  Technology to integrate pricing, account management, and six levels of greater management were required.

Image Deployment and Management System
Donna Pogroszewski, Director, Communications & Network Services, and David Lane, Associate Director, Communications & Network Services
MCC’s need for a robust classroom imaging system was contracted to a private local company, Pivcon, Inc., This desktop imaging technology is needed to deploy images to over 2,000 classroom PCs, many requiring customized configuration and many requiring over 200 images per screen.  MCC’s existing desktop infrastructure was built into the system.
