IT Computing Surveys – Spring 2006
This past April/May the Division of Information Technology asked students, faculty and staff to respond to an on-line survey to help us improve IT's offerings and services. There were 1,440 responses from students and 1,230 responses from faculty and staff. Respondents who completed the questionnaire were entered to win their choice of an Apple iPod Nano, a Canon PowerShot digital camera, or a Toshiba portable DVD player. The winning student, selected at random, was Andrew Allgeier of Casper. The faculty/staff winner, also selected at random, was Rod Skaggs of the Civil Engineering department.
The 2006 responses indicate a significant increase in laptop ownership – 64 % of students and 51 % of faculty and staff responding to the survey reported owning laptops – up from 52 % and 45 % in 2005. This change drives increased use of UW’s wireless network – 32 % of students and 26 % of faculty and staff reported routinely using the wireless network – up from 22 % and 18 % in 2005.
