Question:
Do you have any comments about the use (or lack of use) of classroom technology in your courses this year or in general?


Answers (347 results)

  • prof's need help with using computers.
  • Projectors are very popular for showing Power Point notes. Can be bad if they flip through them too fast and you can't copy down the notes. Good because they can post them online.
  • Good idea
  • Lack of professor knowledge for use of equipment. They already have notes made up for what they're putting ont he white board. Just put it under the projector instead of wasting time writing it on the board. You can do more explaining and talking when you don't write it up on the board.
  • IT seems somewhat inconsistant because it would often break or overheat
  • It is effective when used along with the lectures, etc., but when it IS the lecture and the instructor only reads it, then there is no use for either the instructor or it.
  • I enjoy it when teachers use technology but it doesn't have much effect on how well I learn.
  • I like it when teachers use it because I feel that they are more organized and I can learn better when they have a set outline to follow for their notes, such as powerpoint.
  • Math classes should use some technology.
  • i like integrating better technology into the classroom
  • Sometimes while using power point presentations professors go too fast.
  • Make sure instructors know how to use them.
  • I don't prefer webAssig.
  • Not at this time.
  • I looove it
  • powerpoint is the bane of learning
  • no commment
  • sometimes the use of technology by a professor that doesn't know how to operate it can be distracting instead of benificial
  • In general, classes that are taught exclusively with PowerPoint presentations are terrible.
  • Ireally like projected notes it makes it easier to follow along.
  • You need to get projectors in more rooms.
  • I have enjoyed professors being able to use the chalkboard as well as overhead projectors to display computer programs or important diagrams that would be hard to draw.
  • I like having the slides and lessons available on the course websites, as well as having our grades easily accessible.
  • Having the same notes on-line that are presented during lectures is very helpful.
  • I like classroom technology
  • I think that not all teachers are know enough about the internet and using computers in the classroom and some of them could use some classes. For example, one of my teachers never used his email and only had power points avaliable in Nelson because he did not have a website.
  • most teachers now use power points
  • Most of my courses are humanities, and nothing works better for humanities courses than a good old-fashioned book.
  • When it is used so that one teacher can teach 300 people in the cinema, it does not work. The teacher sits there and writes but you don't get any eye contact or conection.
  • I really like the instructors who post their powerpoint presentations on the net for reviewable access
  • it never worked how it was supposed to.
  • Nope. Most used them.
  • Classroom technology in Poe hindered my learning because the technology did not work. Many times my teacher wasted class time trying to hook up the computer.
  • it helps if the teacher is familar with the equiptment
  • My classes have not really been ones that need any technology other than a chalkboard (Engineering Major).
  • The technology is nice, using projectors, remotes used in voting, etc allows for a more efficient education, but sometimes that technology doesn't work quite right. 98% of the time it was working, but when it didn't it was a pain.
  • it helps with visualizing the info
  • Proffessors did not seem to have full knowledge of the classroom technology and spent quite a bit of time trying to get the equipment to work.
  • Techonology in the classroom is over-rated! I do like communicating with professors over e mail though.
  • I like it when the teachers (in the chem department) use the overhead in conjunction with the computer...helps to see exactly what they're talking about.
  • The College of Design could benifit from more waccom (sp?) tablets.
  • They need to be maintenenced more often to fix problems.
  • Nit at the moment.
  • The TV's in Dabney 124 are terrible.
  • I think that the use of technology, when it works properly, is a wonderful way of teaching someone to grasp a concept.
  • Depends on the teacher.
  • Its great!!
  • some teachers overuse it, there is no substitute for going to the board and working things out.
  • using webassign for homework i dont like - sitting in front of the computer to do homework stinks b/c it lets you be distracted too easily
  • I find it ridiculous that I pay for webassign but at times I can't get on it to do my homework. I just have to wait until it feels like letting me sign on.
  • Sometimes it can be distracting and waste time, but it is also an effective way to pass on information
  • more classes should use WebCT
  • I feel that when you have to write stuff down and not just look at it that one learns the material better.
  • only effective if used carefully, using it as a supplement to working examples. when used simply as a quicker method of getting through topics, the learning suffers.
  • its been helpful
  • It helps.
  • Some professors overuse the technology, especially powerpoint. They just read off the screen. In addition, most of these powerpoints are available online after the lecture, hence, contributing to a student's absence because they can just look at it at their own leisure.
  • Technology is great in the classroom as long as the teachers know how to use it. I particularly like the distance Ed classes where the lectures are taped so you can go back and re-watch a lecture.
  • I think it depends more on the teacher and his or her ability than one the technology used.
  • We need to make sure there is a manual or instructions for using the materials...my sociology teacher spent time almost everyday trying to figure out how to make the projectors, powerpoints, etc. work or come up.
  • the classrooms that had the technology were great... really enjoyed being in that environment.
  • Sometimes it takes too much time to get things set up that we lose class time.
  • i like when teachers offer powerpoints and they are posted online...it means i can concentrate less on writing down every word they say and more on what the lecture is on.
  • When there is technology there needs to be trained individuals who will help the professor because most of them don't know what to do when something goes wrong and it takes forever to fix it. I am welcome to having technology in the classroom, but sometimes it can be a waste of time.
  • It needs to be setup before class, don't try and test it in class
  • Good teachers don't need to rely on crappy technology. There... I said it.
  • Powerpoint slides really are not helpful to my learning process.
  • Not at this time.
  • It makes no difference as long as the teacher can teach.
  • It made some courses run more smoothly but others it hindered the progress.
  • It helps me pay more attention...i don't get bored and sleepy so fast.
  • I learn much better when I have to take notes, such as when the professor writes the notes on the board rather than using power point. I really hate classes that are taught primarly using power point to convey information.
  • No I dont i think it was used enough.
  • Generally speaking, I think instructional technology can be a boon in the hands of the right instructor (or in a class that is heavily technology based, such as a computer science course) but on the whole I don't think it is necassary.
  • More power outlets in better locations would provide the ability to actually make use of my laptop for class notes. If they were provided I would be very appreciative.
  • I think that using is is very good as long as it isn't an escape not to actually teach.
  • Visuals help me learn personally, so I prefer well done powerpoints to learn.
  • My physics class used it too much. Learning how to use the technology is sometimes a waste of time...sometimes it is a more efficient use of class time to just forget about all the technology and teach the concepts.
  • sometimes it is a good idea to hand the technology so that examples of the application are shown...other times it is a hendrence when the teacher relies solely on the technology for instruction and lots of class room participation is lost
  • sometimes professors go too fast with powerpoints.
  • It is usefull but messes up a good amount
  • I enjoyed the use of classroom technology. It made the class more interesting.
  • It really depends on whether or not the teacher is good. I had a great math teacher who wrote and drew everything in chalk, and that class was great. On the other hand, I had a great zoology professor who used power point every class.
  • Most of the classes that don't use it don't have access to it...it would really be helpful for them to have it
  • It's helpful to follow along because you can listen and take notes and have things to refer to since some professors also e-mail their powerpoints etc.
  • omit
  • Seems like the students are more educated when it comes to technology than the teachers. Many times a STUDENT had to get equipment working. I think you should offer workshops to teachers, or at least teach them the basics!
  • Not really. The teachers tend to know what they're doing.
  • The computers should be reliable in the rooms that use this technology. Some days the computers would mess up in Weaver and Dabney so we'd learn less those days.
  • My classes do require the use of technology.
  • Some use it too much, some not enough.
  • It wasn't this year but the blue remotes we purchased for organic chemistry were worthless
  • The technology is rarely "necessary," though it has been sometimes. It is usually for convenience.
  • nope it pretty much depends on the class
  • It made the class more interactive but I personally didnt learn any better or worse.
  • Regardless of the medium, well-prepared and well-structured lectures are very helpful. Poorly prepared and slapped-together powerpoints don't necessarily enhance learning.
  • not sure
  • It shouldn't be relied on so heavily. Powerpoint is no substitute for hand-written notes, it is instead a supplement and should be used as such.
  • Sometimes it took the professors some time to get the equipment up and running.
  • More profs should be techno-savvy. Many points would be better illustrated through the use of technology
  • In most cases it helps.
  • The use of technology in the classroom greatly enhances the learning process.
  • It is better than listening to the teacher the whole time.
  • some of my teachers did not know how to use it and had to get help from students, this took up class time
  • Some teachers just read off their slides, then post them online... why go to class?
  • instructors need to learn how to use computers.
  • I think it helps.
  • when used and it breaks the help desk has always been a problem because they are too slow to fix the problem or are unable to, so technology is almost always more of a problem than its worth when it breaks
  • I think the college of business management has done a good job of incorporating technology in the classroom. Classes that I have taken outside this college have seemed less developed in technological assistance.
  • Seems to work well for teaching and be reliable in every class, no complaints
  • Sometimes it they dont know how to use it correctly so its not effective or timely
  • Teach Dr. Wahl (CH221) how to use a lapel mic properly.
  • I like to have a good mix of both IT and standard traditional teaching methods - having the choice is great
  • Train all the professors and TAs on how to use the technology. Many times professors and TAs aksed students how to use the equipment.
  • should be used more
  • It would be nice of they all used it.
  • There needs to be someone in the classroom for those teachers who dont know how to use the technology. Much class time was wasted because of the lack of knowledge of the teachers
  • I think using technology makes things more interesting and easier to read.
  • /
  • /
  • Some teachers effectively use instructional technology pretty well, but more than a third end up using it and it becomes a distraction then anything else. Some teachers also do not know how to operate some items.
  • if the teacher is bad to begin with it doesn't help or hurt either way, its more dependent on the teacher than any aides they may use
  • Wasn't a make or break sort of thing.
  • they don't use it enough overheads suck
  • I deffinatly have some teacher thar need to use more classroom technology.
  • Sometimes professors use powerpoints to much and that is kind of annoying.
  • very helpful
  • Sometimes, I think it depends greatly on the subject in which is being lectured if technology can be used effectively. Some instructors seem to rely on this technology heavily and cannot continue class if there is a problem with the technology. But in other classes, technologies are needed for things such as taking notes and illustrating a concept. I think overall it is needed.
  • I hate lectures through powerpoint. Write on the board please!
  • The only time that classroom technology has been a downfall is when the teacher decides to just have power point slides instead of actually going through the work. this can lead to the teacher going to quickly or covering more information than we are able to absorb.
  • Sometimes the use of too much technology is bad. Many professors teach straight from the powerpoints and if it is not on the slide it will not be learned.
  • The only courses where I have used technology in the classroom, have been to research topics for papers and look online for information.
  • I think the classes in Harrelson need to be better equipped for technology.
  • Some professors rely too much on instructional technology, they forget to actually use the board for sufficient problem solving.
  • As long as the teacher's handwriting is legible, it really doesn't make much difference to me.
  • It's been very helpful in economics, so that the graphs are already drawn in the notes I've printed off and I just have to pay attention.
  • just to make sure the teachers are sufficently trained to use them, a few teachers were not able to use technology to it's full potential
  • powerpoint presentations used by teachers are helpful
  • Alot of the time the teachers havn't been educated enough about the equipment and can't use it when just some simple setting has changed from what they are used to. They know only how to follow a few pregiven steps they do not actually understand the systems they are using.
  • I think they need to use it some, some classrooms do not have access to that and that option is not available. I think it would be better if teachers had a variety.
  • Classroom technology was not used enough for the amount of equipment we have and the quality of the available technology.
  • People slack off when everything is electronic. They never have to write anything down and they don't pay attention. Overall its leading to dumber and dumber people.
  • I don't learn with it as well, because my teacher reads straight off of the notes. I could do that on my own.
  • The biggest way in which technology has helped has been in making the instructor's notes visible to large classes.
  • more professors/TAs need to post their class information on websites
  • Technology in the classroom is effective if it is also accompanied by examples explained by the teacherwith chalk or a marker. There is no substitute for real-time education.
  • The tvs and projectors fight with the teachers and don't like to work.
  • The use of technology does not affect my performance, but the way the information was presented could be improved with better demonstrations.
  • I would love to see all teachers extemporaneously teaching through multimedia someday.
  • If used properly its good, but it is not effective if the teacher uses powerpoint or something like that just to introduce topics and then talk about them forever it is not effective. I like to be able to copy my notes down off of the powerpoint or have them posted online so I can bring them to class. When used properly instructional technology is a good thing.
  • SOme teachers couldn;t get it to work
  • Projectors have a hard time working right.
  • i think that when a teacher is given a high-tech room with computer operated lighting, overhead, projector, etc., that the teacher should get some kind of training in that exact system, because it takes a lot of class time when they can't work the computers. And it isn't their fault, but i think extra instruction in such cases is necessary. thanx!
  • should all use some kind of visuals.
  • webassign sucks really really badly and they need to just do away with it, even if grades are determined solely by tests.
  • Computer presentations are much more useful for me than overhead projectors. With the use of computers, the information can be posated on the class website so you can listen to the instructor instead of trying to copy the overhead before he/she takes it away.
  • I think all the classrooms should use instructional technology because it is more efficient and easier and creates a better learning environment.
  • It is easy to tell which professors do not prefer using technology, because they will only use it for a couple of class periods. I tend to learn better with its use.
  • I like the class better when it is used but I don't know if it helps my learning all that much.
  • While technology can help aid a teacher with teaching, it can also hinder them when they rely completely on it and then something breaks or doesn't work, causeing the class to be further behind then it should be.
  • it helps alot.
  • i liked being able to have the technology
  • good
  • The use of classroom technology was useful in quickly giving visuals to hard to understand topics.
  • OH well
  • It is nice, but I learn just as well when notes are written on the board.
  • PowerPoint presentations degrade the learning experience- especially when there are no images to look at to learn the material.
  • sometimes trying to get it to work takes up necessary class time
  • makes things less boring
  • The professors need a short training for things like smart board
  • good idea
  • general
  • In the Scale-Up courses, getting the technology to actually work was a big problem at times.
  • because all the notes are online now, students don't feel the need to take notes as much in class and their minds wander more.
  • I dislike a dependance on power point by professors, a computer malfunction should not decrease the quality of a class on a regurlar basis, computers should enhance courses, but not become a crutch (unless it is a computer based course)
  • too many webassigns
  • some professor just use a power point for class and the topic is not understood and discussed well
  • wastes less time than writing everything on the board.... also can download powerpoints from my computer so i don't have to write them down in class
  • I like the use of powerpoint presentations and computers available for the teachers to access things on the internet or their notes. Powerpoints keep students more focused I think.
  • I like classroom technology
  • fdafda
  • Course evaluations should be done online.
  • USE IT MORE
  • Sometimes it helps if a profeesor uses classroom technology, but a lot of the time the proffessor thinks they can go a lot faster b/c of it... hindering my ability to keep up.
  • A good experience.
  • teachers really need to learn how to use equipment b/c sometimes all my classtime is used up b/c they don't know how to work it.
  • Helps to use it when appropriate, but can be bad if overdone.
  • they are all windows.. this is bad
  • I learn better with PowerPoint notes instead of using the blackboard and trying to keep up with the teacher and write notes. I also like the overhead...anything other than the basic lecturing without aids or the blackboard. I think it might help if some of the professors attend workshops that will help them with technology.
  • I found that power point or some similar media was extremely helpful to me.
  • Some teachers depend too much on PowerPoint to teach now that they can use technology in the classroom
  • It was usually beneficial
  • It depends on the type of course for whether it is helpful. For math, it is easier to see the problems worked by hand, but in courses like Chemistry I really like the technology.
  • use more technology. its better then looking at a teacher while hes boring us with a lecture.
  • Amazing technology
  • i loved being a part of the laptop pilot program, and i wish that more classes were laptop sections. having internet access during lecture allows me to search on topics quickly and easily, thus enriching the class discussion as it is proceeding.
  • had physics 208 in G108...technology was really nice when it worked but only worked about 70% of time...too many glitches
  • some professors could use some training using these technologies.
  • It is great to be able to have technology in the classroom. I think it enhances the learning experience and keeps things interesting.
  • It's just nice to have as it organizes the information a professor is trying to give out.
  • I think it would help if some professors used more technology because it helps to visualize a concept better and it can be better understood.
  • Some of the professors need to learn how to use the technology better
  • webassign will suck if we have to pay for it
  • The professors used the technology when it would be useful, and didn't use it when it wouldn't help.
  • I wish professors wouldn't use powerpoint to take the place of themselves.
  • The equipment is often in disrepair or does not work properly.
  • Consistent and proficient, but I mainly took business and computer science classes so it's to be expected
  • Teachers need to know how to use it and it needs to work!
  • Classroom technology keeps the students engaged and helps increase attention spans.
  • It was great!
  • Sometimes the equipment does not work.
  • Be careful with straight reading powerpoints/notes or basing lectures off of random animations. notes are still good and important for learning.
  • I think it aids in the learning experience and makes me pay attention more. Also, having such equiptment makes our school look more impressive.
  • This is a stupid question. It all depends on the class. You can't take Computer Science without using computers. It's extremely difficult to learn Math using classroom technology. ClassTech is a complete waste of time for a lot of professors.
  • Classroom technology should be used more to reduce the reliance on chalkboards. View of chalkboard is obstructed by the lecturer or head of people in line of sight and some boards are very dusty. Using classroom technology could save the lecturer's writing time and increase legibility.
  • The use or lack of use of classroom technology had no real effect on my ability to learn the material. It's an appropriate tool for some classes, but I had no problem with classes that didn't use anything more complicated than a whiteboard and markers.
  • Very helpful.
  • Used best when the professor distributes lectures/information for the whole class, or editing papers in an English class.
  • i like it when professors use power points and make them available to students so i can follow along on my computer
  • LEARNING EXPERIENCE IS MORE EFFECTIVE WHEN TEACHERS UTILIZE TECHNOLOGY
  • in some cases over used, as with large projectors that drew attention away from the instructor or obstructed other material (withers 218 and harrelson 314 and 107, for examples, respectively)
  • If it's there, it's used. If it's not, it's not.
  • PowerPoint Lectures hinder students from learning the material thoroughly enough.
  • no, indiferent
  • Too much is bad. G-108 is too much.
  • many teachers are still using low tech teaching tools I think powerpoint presentations should be the standard for lectures
  • any technology expected to be used out of class should be explained in class before hand or you should be paired with someone who already knows how to use it.
  • Teachers have to be careful not to fo too fast when using technology. Students still need time to take notes. Be careful not to fly through a powerpoint presentation.
  • I think it allows the student to be more envolved in the learning process inside the classroom. It allows students to be more than just a note-taker.
  • it did not effect my learning experience
  • Sometimes when teachers use technology to display their notes, they tend to go through them to quickly not giving you enough time to copy them.
  • i dont learn as well when teachers only use powerpoint to teach. i need some kind of writing or interaction.
  • I like being able to take note (ie copy what the teacher writes) so technology is less effective at teaching me material.
  • It is much easier for me to learn when teachers use a powerpoint presentation in class which is made available to students online.
  • in reference to the previous question, it depends on the subject material and the class
  • For the most part, classroom technology has meant some form of digital slides or powerpoint show which is quite simply the worst style of teaching there is.
  • my engineering teachers like to use power point because it lets them cover the materials faster; what was once derived on the black board is now just a power point slide. the speed at which he goes through them makes it difficult to learn. I forsee the new generation of successful students distinguished by different learning style. A new generation who can momorize slides more easily, and not necessarily learn as well with a black board.
  • power point in my bio lab was really helpful
  • I especially liked my Java teacher's method. Basically, all of his lecture notes are on a webpage, and in class he projects that webpage and gives the lecture. If I need to study later, the information is on the webpage.
  • It's great when used effectively. Otherwise, it's just another distraction.
  • The use of technology in the classroom greatly contributed to helping me learn the material in the course textbooks, coursepacks, and etc.
  • Teachers should take a course on how to properly use everything. the students have to help them alot of the time and its a hassel.
  • Over-reliance on technology can make the class boring and repetetive.
  • like being able to have lecture material available online after class, i feel this is the most valuable technology contribution
  • When it was used it was useful.
  • using power point presentations to give notes makes it easier to access the notes outside of class and review them, so that rather than writting everything down in class, I can just listen
  • ALl of my classrooms seems to have some kind of presentational technology in them
  • i believe through my experience the technology was more oh a hassle then it was helpful. the machines would constantly not work or they would melfunction in the middle of our working causing for class to be delayed.
  • for being in the laptop program there isn't a variety of laptop classes available.
  • It's effective only when the professors knows what he/she is doing with the equipment.
  • It sucks. They make slides and point at them. They don't write stuff out, so it's harder to see how they got from point A to point B
  • computer use is great because it facilitates learning and allows the availability of a wide range of information via the internet
  • I feel like the PRS system in the physics department is good fr getting the students involved
  • In one course the teacher did not realize that the document reader could be used quite effictively for our course until the end of the semester. I would like the teachers familiarized with all the technology available in their class room.
  • Not at the moment.
  • More of my teachers should use
  • They provide great graphics on certain discussions for classes such as physics and Chemistry.
  • you must have access to a computer to pass any class
  • lack of use in english and history classes.
  • I think the use of physics "clicker questions" is very helpful.
  • Projectors with powerpoint slides are especially helpful when the slides are also available online for students to print out and study...also to bring to class so students don't have to spend more time keeping up with writing down notes than paying attention, and be able to just follow along.
  • I thought that the PRS questions in physics were helpful.
  • All professors should have a posted email address and use it as well.
  • Compared to most institutions (especially in the UNC system), NCSU shows an incredibly effective use of instructional technology.
  • The projectors were probably the most-used.
  • there should be more
  • i learn better when it's used.
  • A visual aid is much more helpful.
  • "Clickers" in CH101 was a waste of time and my money. I was told that these things would be used fairly often so they reccomended that I buy a 2 year subscription for $40. The use of it in CH101 was minimal and pointless (they didn't work half the time too) and none of my classes since and probably in the future use the "clickers." I feel ripped off.
  • No, profs use the technology well.
  • not really
  • I just wished the professor knew how to use the technology better instead of wasting class time playing with it.
  • Its effectiveness depends on how it is used. If there is a teacher who knows how to use it, then it could help. But if the teacher has problems with it then, more than likely the student will have problems too and it will not help the students out.
  • Many teachers rely solely on technology to teach their classes which allows for them to go too fast, so students are unable to grasp all concepts or keep up in the class. Teachers should use technology moderately, supplement not the focus.
  • its good
  • technology is power
  • Courses that use technology most effectively use it as a supplement, not as the core tool of teaching. Technology should not attempt to do away with teaching ability.
  • More powerpoint lectures are great.
  • Pictures and Video are most helpful, just putting the notes on powerpoint does help some, but not to the extent that images and video can (mainly for CHASS courses).
  • Alot of teachers do not know how to use the equipment
  • We used a lot of technology in labs, but we were on our own. I would have liked to know how to do more in excel because I had to figure it out on my own and it took longer.
  • Technology in the class room does not always provide for better learning. Professors who use "technology" like power point slides are often very boring and learning from reading slides is very hard. I prefer chalk and a chalk board.
  • It ewas used very well
  • Sometimes professors read from slides. This detracts from the class. Professors should use powerpoint correctly and only put bullets on the slide and elaborate.
  • Make sure that those instuctors who use classroom technology KNOWS how to use it... maybe offer some classes for them, lol
  • my classes in harrelson did not use technology effectively
  • Sometimes it helps, sometimes it hinders. I suspect it is entirely dependent upon the professor.
  • if we are learning how to use the program then having a computer to use during the lecture really helps. some technology during the lecture is great but not too much.
  • sometimes powerpoint presentations make it too hard to take notes. Then again, you can print the slides from the internet...but who likes to waste paper/ink on such things? Not I.
  • not at this time,
  • Sometimes the professor will rely way too much on the technology, making it a problem if it's not working.
  • No not really except the notes can be sent out over email which is nice.
  • i am impressed with how many instructors use it.
  • Some courses need it. for example history courses benefit from having slides shown, and occasionally professor presentations using powerpoint are beneficial. in my opinion, visual aides in any form are invaluable to learning
  • professors use technology effectively.
  • Sometimes it's overused and sometimes it's under used
  • i don't like it very much...it takes away lecture time because the professor takes too much time to figure out how to use it
  • The powerpoint presentations, when posted on the internet, help out when I miss a day or two.
  • I have used technology in several (75%) of my classes.
  • I don't like projectors
  • Hard to find a complete technology integrated room. Usually the room is lacking something.
  • I think the technology is great. I have succeeded the best in those courses which use powerpoint b/c then the lectures are available online and I don't have to worry about taking notes on everything.
  • Instructors generally do not have a solid grasp of how to use the technology available in the room, and therefore take up valuable class time trying to get it to work.
  • when a professor just lectures off a white board it is hard for students to lose focus because it is so boring
  • A lot of the professors have trouble using the classroom technology.
  • Some teachers preferred to use the overhead projector instead of the powerpoint projector.
  • Easier for the students to view and understand, but also easier for the teacher to move too quickly through the lectures.
  • It's good as a visual aide.
  • Powerpoints make it harder to learn
  • i think that when teachers just read off power points that is not very helpful as a learning tool
  • I feel as though all teachers should be required to have a web-page, AND USE IT for poasting of hw, answers, updates, etc...
  • The difference is clear... there are some things that lecture just can't convey... although the instructor who didn't use technology my have been out of the loop in more than just pc use.
  • No other comments
  • Sometimes when the computer malfunctioned, it really disturbed the class a great deal
  • more smart classrooms "and wireless classrooms in college of design!!
  • Lobo is pointless
  • my dynamics teacher used a projector (digital) in witherspoon cinema. I liked being able to see the notes from any location, but I was frustrated when he move them too fast for me to copy them down. this is probably more of a teacher issue, but if you made it easy for him to put the notes online, it would be nice.
  • It just depends on the course material, some it helps some it just gets in the way.
  • if classroom technology should be used in moderation because I feel students don't follow the steps in solving problems as well unless you go step by step.
  • not really
  • Better to use
  • crappy technology.
  • i that teachers are able to put note onlie, it saves time for me and the teacher.
  • 3
  • Some teachers have technology but are not clear on how to use it.
  • It's ususally a good thing. Though the teachers that don't use it also are effective.
  • Some professors rely on powerpoint etc. too much
  • I think it is a necessity for computer science courses. It is nice to have access to computers periodically for watching videos and things in other classes, but I would prefer to be taught on a board.
  • teachers used it well.
  • I don't like professors that rely to heavily on powerpoint, it is too easy for them to cover material faster than I can copy it.
  • some of the classes don't need to be so dependent on technology. i wish they would be more personable.
  • HATE WEBASSIGN
  • i thinks it good because i learn better with visual aids
  • Sometime too much classroom time is wasted trying to get the technology to work, so that it becomes more of a burden than a learning tool.
  • The chalkboards in harrelson needs to be replaces with dry-erase.
  • It's good to have it sometimes, but only when it actually helps. Sometimes professors use it for the sake of using it, and that's kind of silly.
  • It can be used well or poorly, depending on the professor.
  • it helps
  • acess to videos of class outside of class is _very_ helpful.
  • it rushes the class, because teachers no longer mintor how much they are saying while students struggle to write down info shown on projectors and what the prof talks about
  • I wish Prof. Ramakrishnan would coordinate her WebAssign times to a time in the late evening rather than early in the morning since the date difference screws up my ability to complete the assignments.
  • I wish that the WebCT would be a little easier to navigate through and submit work through. It needs to document work more for when there are problems which are bound to happen.
  • When the prof relies soley on technology multimedia, there is a breakdown of interest. Mixed media should be used to be applicable to all students.
  • Being a visual learner, it helped tremendously! Especially when made available on E reserve
  • For some classes it is unnecessary. But others, CSC 116 with Mrs Miller, it should be used far more often than it was.
  • A simple, non-crappy (i.e. non-webCT) system geared toward non-tech professors for putting course material on the web would be good. Something as simple as "upload your document here, it will appear on a list of documents online" would suffice. Perhaps a PHP/Perl script that professors can slap in easily.
  • Teachers go faster when they use powerpoints....alot of students left behind

Question:
Do you have any comments about the music pilot program?


Answers (618 results)

  • It is still easier to "pirate" music online. That is free.
  • Needs better advertisement
  • Meh, they're all subscription based. Which is useless unless you keep paying the company.
  • If it stayed free I would use it.
  • none of the pilots offered a mac client. would have done it if that was available.
  • didn't do it
  • It never worked for me. Pretty much useless because we couldn't burn CD's.
  • Good idea, but I don't really download music anyway.
  • don't know enough about it, did not know how to get to it.
  • I tried to sign up for it but could not get it to work. It said I had the wrong code.
  • I signed up for it and it never worked, it always said my code was invalid.
  • I wish I knew about it because I would have used it.
  • i have had terrible experience with Cdigix, its slow, and their service has been more trouble than its worth, they dont have a very good base of music and the layout of the program isnt user friendly
  • good
  • not willing to pay money for the service
  • i hate that the music expires. it is frustrating
  • I wish we could burn in addition to downloading without paying a fee.
  • most programs are not compatible with mac so i couldn't take advantage
  • Good idea. I used Ruckus and I wish it provided more recent movies for free. Also, because of the pilot program I joined a site where I payed for my MP3's so that I could keep them instead of having to lose my music at the end of the semester.
  • Don't end the program
  • Didn't know about it
  • It sucks if you can't burn cds for free. Getting music from p2p sources is fast, easy, free and more importantly non restrictive.
  • I was surprised at how little they had to offer and I was disappointed.
  • I think it should remain FREEEEEEEEEEEE!
  • It was a nice program and nice to give to the students for free. I would have used it more but I did haven't time due to academic responsibilities.
  • Make the subscription all year around.
  • i like itunes and that i am connected to multiple people's playlists in my building so i can listen to their music without having to download it.
  • it was good, continue it
  • I was never able to use mine because Raphsody never sent me a way to access my account.
  • didn't try it
  • More detailed instructions, it just sort of left me at the email and i didn't know where to go
  • We should be able to burn the music if we are paying for it.
  • I loved it.
  • It was awesome!
  • I was unsatisfied with the fact that music could not be kept after the short period.
  • it was pretty worthless
  • Great experience, just wish it lasted all year and wish it continued to be free while being a student here at ncsu.
  • I did not sign up for any of the pilot services because of over restrictive DRM schemes. I don't support the illegal downloading of music; piracy is illegal, plain and simple. I do believe in consumers’ rights, on the other hand. I feel if I purchase a piece of music from a service, I should be able to listen to and use the piece of music as I see fit. I will gladly pay a premium for lossless, non-DRM hobbled songs, however.
  • I did not utilize it.
  • What is it?
  • I never really understood how it worked so I never used it.
  • The music selection for the program I used wasnt very good.
  • it was nice-i wish we could keep it really cheap
  • I thought that the Ruckus service was rediculous. It didn't have hardly any new songs, and most of the ones it did have were live recordings. Also I wish I would have been allowed to change to another service since Ruckus was very misleading in promoting their service.
  • Ruckus' selection was really poor and their GUI was horrible. Slow, bloated, and very buggy. Having premium movies is stupid, and hardly ever adding to the very few free movies is worse. The quality of the music and video (bit rate/resolution/etc) was also very poor in my opinion. The money NCSU wasted on this should be used to do something useful like extending NOMAD wireless service on campus (BRICKYARD & CENTENNIAL CAMPUS!!!)
  • I didn't ever really understand the program.
  • thanks
  • I won't use the music pilot program for two reasons: a)The music I like isn't available on those services b)I'd rather just buy the CD c)There is no Linux client
  • It didn't work on my computer, so I never got to use it.
  • I didn't like ruckus at all. It didn't have most of the thing i wanted and i was becmome more likely to go use another way of getting music and movies.
  • it should be permanent, and you should be able to get the music off of the comp onto a CD
  • I liked it a lot, but I doubt I'll pay for a service.
  • i like it, but i don't like how you can't keep the songs after you stop subscribing to the service. it has not affected the amount of other downloading that i do or the amount of cds that i buy.
  • Ruckus can be annoying to figure out.
  • I don't want to participate because as I understand it, these services jack your music back if you don't stay with them. I want to be able to keep it. If I wasn't going to get to keep it, I'd rather itune it and just have it for 99 cents.
  • Seems like a waste of time; I would much rather own the songs (forever) in the form of a CD which I would then transfer to iTunes over Apple Lossless.
  • i like it... you should have it again for us.
  • These services don't offer the range of music that P2P services offer, and therefore suck.
  • I really like the music program and I think NCSU should pay to give students free downloading capabilites like other universities.
  • I couldn't figure it out, but I did not put much effort into it.
  • didn't do it
  • needs more advertising
  • It was stupid that you would have to pay to keep the music after it was over.
  • The services are not very good because you are not allowed to actually download songs, but you stream them. This means you have to have a constant internet connection to use it.
  • Napster was not applicable to my computer so it couldnt use it. I was disappointed.
  • Didn't have a lot of rare good bands. Only crappy ones that tone deaf people who watch TV listen to.
  • It was not well known. If more information has been given I might have signed up for it.
  • It was a good idea.
  • i wish i had known about it.
  • I really liked it, I have gotten music that I like but would not neccessarily buy because I would not listen to it for long.
  • if there was free music i didnt know the difference between it and the virus pop ups
  • excellent program, I hope it is done again
  • it was great!
  • If it was available for the whole time that I am a student, I would use it. If I could keep the music on my iPod as well, I would use it.
  • it was really great to search for an artist and find what u want instantly
  • I did not sign up for it because there was not much information about the service when I was sent the e-mail. It looked like junk-mail because there was no mention of NC State, just a generic name. Plus I read that this was a trial program, and that we would have to pay for music we kept, and not knowing much about computers I decided not to deal with any future hassles with the program.
  • Yes, you couldnt put any of the music on your Mp3 player AND the movies sucked.
  • I would've liked to participate, I just never got around to signing up for one.
  • Yea I signed up for it but then i could never download it because it said my login name or password was wrong. I emailed people but it never really helped so I never even got to use it and I wanted to!
  • I didn't know it existed!!
  • It stopped working after a while :(
  • Good idea but there are so many ways to get around paying for any music downloads these days and other available services that dont charge anyway; that might be the reason not many people took advantage.
  • Did not try the pilot program.
  • Not at the moment.
  • Ruckus was setup so that I would have to use their media player, but having my own media player and not wantning to swap my files over caused me to uninstall the program.
  • I'd like to have it again.
  • It should be continued on a free basis, because it is very likely that this program has lessened the impact of p2p services on overall bandwidth usage.
  • I don't know how to use it. Therefore I don't. But I don't really care about it. I have an ipod but my sister puts songs on it.
  • I think it's a step in the right direction. It should be free to on-campus students.
  • I tried to download and use the program via Napster but had problems getting it to work and didn't bother trying to get help.
  • it was a good idea but i just didnt read into it
  • It is ineffective. Songs cannot be played over the summer and they do not transfer to addresses off campus making downloaded music worthless. It does reduce NC State's legal difficulties, but that is all. Anyone who truly wants a song will continue to download them using a P2P service. For me to actually approve of the service, I would want a download service where I own the copyright material and have a transferrable copy to burn to cd or put on an mp3 player and does not require authentication. I would want it to have no DRM technology attached. These technologies will lead to incompatibilities between software and hardware and confuse the end user. I would prefer to have 10 songs for free download per month from itunes that i can burn than to have unlimited streaming access that I already have. It's very important that the music can be backed up so that it isn't lost after leaving the school's network. P2P use will continue to increase until there is no reason to use it.
  • I did not access them, dont' really know much about them and I thought it might take a lot of my memory.
  • DRM sucks
  • i chose rhapsody, and they didn't seem to cooperate fully. at times it didn't seem to work, and it would cut off at random times or decide to take away songs i had already downloaded
  • I prefer to own my purchases, not lease.
  • OFFER ITUNES OR SOME OTHER MAC COMPATIBLE PROGRAM!!!!!!! ITS THE #1 USED SERVICE AND YOU DONT OFFER IT? THAT WOULD BE THE -ONLY- ONE I WOULD EVER SIGN UP FOR.
  • great program. I hope it can keep going
  • I did not know much about it or it seemed untrustworthy.
  • I didn't use the service b/c I was told I would be unable to burn anything I downloaded. I don't like to keep things on my computer b/c they take up space, therefore, I'm not going to waste my time downloading something just to delete it later.
  • Very good idea. I love napster.
  • Needs more music choices/selections
  • The problem wasn't with the advertisement. Many students knew about it, even talked about it. I think the problem was that when the service stopped being free, they could not keep the things they have downloaded. And students do not want to pay to continue the service.
  • I don't know much about it, but if it costs a fee then I don't think it will be very popular among college students, no matter what the fee is.
  • Good idea but I'd like to see something where students could get a reduced rate from a better service...iTunes comes to mind.
  • pretty good idea
  • i never used it
  • Rhapsody was great, I wish the program would carry over for no fee or a small fee that is optional like cable service.
  • Rhapsody was great, I wish the program would carry over for no fee or a small fee that is optional like cable service.
  • I signed up for it and everything, but never got the follow up email that I was supposed to get that was going to tell me the further instructions about how I get my choosen service.
  • bad idea
  • The selection of music on the services was so poor that I never had cause to use them.
  • I do not have speakers on my computer so I did not take advantage of this opportunity.
  • Should be free for all, all the time.
  • I tried to sign up for Rhapsody but they wanted me to enter a log in name and password when I did not even have a chance to sign up for one. I didn't know how to go around it. It seemed too difficult and time consuming to fix the problem by getting someone else's help and I knew I would have to pay for it later on so I wasn't interested.
  • I really liked the movies
  • none of them seemed to work well with mac
  • Why pay for it when it's still free?
  • I never used it.
  • If I had known about it and it had the type of music that I listen to (Death Metal, Grindcore, Black Metal, etc.) then I would more than likely use it.
  • I thought it was useless because you couldn't keep the music and i didn't participate.
  • its a good idea but you should be able to burn them onto cds, otherwise, it is still better to download off of illegal programs
  • i really dont know enough about how to run it to download it and do it all legally
  • I never knew it existed.
  • I wish we would get it all the time, maybe include a nominal addition to the ResNet fee
  • It should have been more talked about
  • Didn't like not being able to burn songs w/o paying for them.
  • I thought it was silly to waste bandwidth to listen to music, plus, I really like holding on to the songs that I have on my computer. iTunes networking is a no-ad alternative to on-demand listening.
  • I had no idea it existed, please advertise it more, I would have liked to use it.
  • File compatibility was a major issue in not using it. I think that a flat fee to download an unlimited number of mp3's per month would be the way to go.
  • Haven't tried it. Will try it next year.
  • Through the program I was informed that I could not burn CD's so I did not participate.
  • i wish i could burn the music that the program paid for for free.
  • I wish I had known about it? Though I already pay for my music through another site, not one of the ones mentioned above, so I don't download illegally anyway.
  • None as I buy all my music.
  • ruckus was terrible, the choice in music and movie media was terrible and the fact that we could not keep the music we downloaded was a waste of my time for downloading it since i would have wanted to put it on my mp3 player for later use instead of just listening to it on my computer all of the time
  • the DMA's really limited use. the services seemed stripped down and after a short time Ruckus removed my account and i had no way to resign up
  • It was a rip-off. The songs on ruckus were old and out of date and nothing i wanted from the last 5 years was on the site. the movies were awful.
  • I couldn't ever figure out how to activate my ruckus account.
  • I love it if it is free
  • Advertise it more
  • I didn't like any of the songs available (mostly old/edited songs which I don't really care for)
  • omit
  • I liked the pilot program, and many of my friends that participated in it liked it also.
  • It seriously sucks. I downloaded a song, and the license ran out the same day. It increased how much I downloaded illegally, because I liked a song, but I was tired of having to download it off of Ruckus 3 times a day. So I downloaded it off of a p2p site, got my fill and erase it from my computer. Hang on... RIAA is at my door (just kidding)
  • I like it. Downloading for free and not getting busted for stealing is sweet. However, the services only allowed downloading of 320kbps mp3s, and I would think it awesome if it were possible to download the full .cdi file instead. You're paying the full price per song, why not allow us to download the full quality as well? I normally rip my CD's in WMA lossless because digital loss bothers me a lot.
  • I liked this but couldn't really download songs like I thought they meant. I used it to listen to music when I got bored. It didn't affect the number of CD's I bought.
  • It seemed like I could only sample songs, and not listen to entire songs. But I heard friends talking about being able to download music, maybe I was confused.
  • market it better, a lot of us dont have the downloading hardware
  • Apple's ITunes is superior to all the pilot program services. I bought more from ITunes this semester than I downloaded for free from the free Napster. Many college offer these services for free.
  • We should be able to keep music we download. The whole liscense thing is crap. It's not even compatable with some players, and that makes me very angry. I mean, how good is it if you cant burn it or put it on a portable device? I don't just sit at my computer listening to music all day.
  • i wish you could burn to cd's
  • It is a good program
  • There are far more important things then music downloads
  • The music selection was poor and I therefore did not use it.
  • I think it would be a really good idea to include a subscription to a music program in tuition. It would cut down on illegal downloading of things such as movies and music.
  • Due to incompatibilities with iPod, I have little reason to use a subscription service. However, iTunes and the dorm-level communities for it are great.
  • more people would use it if we could keep the music we download free of charge
  • It is nice to have it free. Would never pay for it unless it was outragiously cheap (5bucks/semester)
  • I didn't recieve adequate instructions on how to sign up and start the service
  • it was good...whoever thought of it should get a promotion (they are very smart)
  • it was a great idea, i got to experience music BEFORE i bought the cd
  • Rhapsody is a poor provider.
  • no idea
  • I didn't sign up for any of the programs because I was not comfortable making a decision/not enough information was provided to me.
  • It would be nice if there were more services that let you use the music you download on a device other than your computer, like an MP3 player. Let's face it, having music is great but not when it's confined solely to your computer.
  • I would have liked more candid info about vendors before choosing one
  • Give me more free Rhapsody.
  • good idea
  • It is a valiant effort. More marketing and a stronger university policy would increase its use; however that would get into free choice and privacy issues.
  • I have really enjoyed the music pilot program, please continue to offer it to students in the fall.
  • Make sure system requirements such as Mac OSX supported is made known before decissions.
  • I think many students were wary of it becuase it seemed really shady, like spam for free trials
  • so lame - iTunes can't be stopped, deal with it
  • I wasn't aware of it.
  • Ruckus would not run on Windows ME, and I found this to be very annoying, since my laptop is running ME.
  • Good idea.
  • It's a great idea.
  • Napster was difficult to use and I'm still not even sure how it really works. I didn't want to have to switch to a new service once it ended so I downloaded a free, easy-to-use service offline.
  • never used it
  • I set Napster up but was never able to use it because I didn't know the code I had to put in to actually get the songs free. There definitely needs to be much more clear instructions on how to use this, and where to get promo codes, etc. I was really excited about the pilot program, but it's lost it's shine since the semester is over and I was never able to use it.
  • great idea, i should have used it this semester
  • i did not use it because i thought it was a scam trying to get college students to download music- i thought all types of downloading was not permitted
  • From what I have heard, the selection of music available is lacking to what many college students listen to.
  • I think it is incompatible with the iPod, hesitation to use a different company than Apple for that.
  • good idea
  • ok
  • I didn't use it because I didn't altogether trust it.
  • I was confused by it.
  • it is horrible
  • I loved it.
  • NO!
  • it never actually let me register and no one answered my questions or fixed it for me. no one seemed to care that i couldn't get my free music
  • The fact all songs dissapeared at the end of the test period was just unappealing
  • Ruckus was AWFUL, it did not have most of the music I listen to. I would have prefered the option to switch to Napster.
  • I stoped using it because i listen to music mainly in the car so it didnt work for me.
  • don't get ruckus
  • I first thought it was a joke and a way to catch students downloading music, then turning around and sueing us for it.
  • loved it
  • Napster wasn't really useful as i have an ipod and must pay extra to listen to music i download from napster.
  • I didn't use it because I never download music.
  • Waste of money.
  • It should be offered to more students
  • I don't know how to use music download programs.
  • Great idea, but the music should be transferrable to mp3 players as well.
  • rhapsody stunk and after talking with the onsultants till forever they still couldnt not help.
  • It was cool, but I think we should have had ALL rights to songs, allowing us to burn them too.
  • Ruckus was good, but there movie selection was no good
  • Keep it! It's great!
  • Please do not take it away, it is a good service and I would like to continue using it for free.
  • Never used it
  • it's awesome, but it's too bad the music will stop working next semester
  • Do it again
  • THANK YOU! It is so nice to be able to preview music before I buy it, right from my room.
  • I heard about it at UNC, but I didn't know that we had it. I would like to see this program continued, and better advertized.
  • It was a terrible idea. I would not subscribe to something temporarily free when it's a hassle and I already have a free way to obtain (read:steal) all the music I want. No one wants to waste their time on a temporarily free alternative when someone who is technologically savvy in the least will use peer to peer filesharing in order to obtain anything they want completely free of charge(well except perhaps the burden on their souls). The great majority of my dorm scoffed at the idea of the music pilot program, and with good reason. Anyone here who actually wanted to pay for music was already doing so. Everyone else has alternatives, and some lame marketing campaign by little known companies and the fallen Napster isn't going to change that.
  • its good
  • it was dissapointing, no good music, could only listen in my room
  • I received the offer to use it, but there was some sort of error that didn't allow me to sign up when I tried.
  • sounds like a great idea, wish I had known about it
  • It was awesome. Please do it again.
  • I don't download music, so not really.
  • I think it's a positive thing for students who are really into downloading music, though a reduced fee would be nice. I personally won't use it because they don't have much of the type of music I listen too.
  • I wish I would have done it.
  • It makes a lot of kids nervous - they thing that if they sign up, their computers will be tracked forever more or something like that.
  • Advertise more
  • make it more available...didn't understand how to use it
  • Get itunes, the rest of those services blow.
  • I liked it. I wouldn't pay for it, but I liked it.
  • Basically i didnt know we had a free service for downloading music. I would be sceptical about the "free" part however.
  • I wish it had been possible to change services within the first week since I was dissatisfied with my choice.
  • tell people about it. i live in avent ferry complex and no one i know here heard about it
  • I think it is a very good idea.
  • I didn't know how to get started
  • I would like to see it implemented again. Not many people knew about it and understood that it was free so they didn't take advantage of it.
  • I couldn't get it to work
  • it sucks for people that have mac's
  • The main difficulty with the program is that the music is not actually the users to have, it is more like a short term loan with many restrictions
  • Continue the pilot program. If you make it more visible all over campus, more people will sign up. Make sure the music is burnable to CDs or else people will continue to use illegal p2p.
  • I think it's a waste of time. Students want to be able to keep their music, and they cannot afford to pay for it on a regular basis.
  • it was a good idea and should be continued
  • If the campus is paying for a service for music for students, it shouldnt be confined to room use. The ability to burn cds, and transfer to songs to an MP3 player should be activated.
  • As long as free, questionably-legal methods of acquiring music on the Internet are widely available and easy to use, I doubt there will be much participation in this kind of pilot program. Given the rampant state of online music piracy among college students, most students are willing to ignore the illegality and accept the risks in favor of getting their music free and with less hassle (i.e. without DRM protection on the files they download, as is the case with the pilot services).
  • More information needed to be spread throughout campus.
  • There was one?
  • i never actually got my access code, i tried contacting several different people, here at ncsu and at rhapsody... but no one was able to help... in the end, i really didn't care
  • It did not work for me and I am not in favor of that sort of music acquisition process.
  • Hey guys! How about some mac support?! Not a single one of the music programs offered support for mac or linux. Way to go with isolating a significant section of the student population.
  • If you can not burn the music to a cd, and you can not access it after you let your suscription end, then what is the point?
  • no, I didn't use it, but I have heard many people liked it.
  • Ruckus was a let down
  • I wish it would have been made known to everyone. I knew they were talking about doing it...but I didn't know that it was actually available for everyone.
  • It was great though it had its fair share of flaws.
  • I download for free anyways...
  • i wish it would be offered again
  • I was not a fan of cdigix. Napster was pretty cool though.
  • I think it is a good idea.
  • it needs to be continued at a reduced rate
  • Very neat. Could still use some more variety in each category.
  • The only thing that was stupid about it was that the songs would expire and you couldn't listen to them until you updated them, and that was a pain.
  • It's stupid that the providers cost money and you have to pay a fee to burn cds on top of that; I don't use cds, I use mp3 player and mp3 cds so that part of the service was stupid.
  • It didnt have any music I like, but it was free. After a while I uninstalled/stopped using it
  • Ruckus required too many updates.
  • I wish you could swtich providers to see how they all work.
  • So you can download music for free?
  • it was a good idea but i did not have time to use it and i could not get ruckus to work on my computer. i did not take the time to try to set it up once the initial installation did not work.
  • I didn't know it was real; I thought it was a trap, like some of the other junk emails we get through Webmail...
  • i think the program should be continued
  • I don't want to pay a monthly fee for music. If I'm going to pay for music I want to own it like I would a cd.
  • the cost of these services better not be added to my tuition and fees !!!!!!!
  • I messed up and didn't get to use it. I got confused with the directions
  • Very discourged with Cdigix.
  • Ruckus only had one thing worth downloading
  • Where do you go to subscribe? How long is the service free? What is the regular fee for the service?
  • ruckus was a pos, i still used kazaa, just not more. The videos didn't work at all.
  • needs more advertising
  • I did not know about it, but if I had, I would have been weary aboutit. It would be nice to know the risks involved and also the possible good that could come from it.
  • It was really good. This servace should be free to all students staying on campus. Actually downloading songs to burn should still have to be payed for by the student though.
  • I thought it was a good idea.
  • It's seems like a waste, since ITunes and BitTorrent are so prevalent on campus.
  • waste of money
  • I wish I would have known about it... i pay way too much for music and need some free music. If its not offered to me, I will find a way to get it, even if it's illegal. Just being honest!
  • It was a good start. The service I used did not have any good songs.
  • Excellent idea
  • My computer was broken during the main time it was working so I didn't really get to use it.
  • didnt use it
  • I think there should have been some way we could make cd's with the music we got from the pilot, possibly at a reduced rate or something like that. It was just frustrating downloading music, and having no use for it.
  • whish i new more about it
  • it would be nice to download the music on cd's or on my ipod.
  • its good
  • it would have been nice if they told you program works with what operating system
  • its advertisement, you cant fool me
  • loved it, i want it to stay free
  • the music goes away at the end of the semester...that defeats the whole purpose, i can get music from friends for free
  • the services had poor selection of music
  • I honestly didn't trust these services
  • i liked it, very useful
  • it made me very angry because i signed up and never got the program
  • Yes, but I don't want to tell you. Besides, it's all advertisement for those loser companies that steal music and sell it to other losers
  • I would really like it to continue next year; for those ppl that would rather have picked a different service they should have the opportunity to sign up for a different service, but those that like their current service they should be able to keep that account so that they can keep all the music that's in that account...and their should have been vendors available that were Macintosh compatible (many friends I know didn't use the pilot program for this reason)
  • I like the idea but would have enjoyed the ability to put my music on a portable player!
  • I wish it was free to download the music.
  • I enjoyed it, but if it was not free I never would have participated.
  • It would have been nice to have been able to keep the music.
  • i like it, please adopt it
  • i was just too lazy to sign up for it, but i really like the idea, and know people that used it really liked it
  • i never used it b/c of the software you had to download
  • Mine reset itself and i found it pointless...
  • I didn't use it because it was not free to burn CD's off of it... Even though I know it is illegal to burn CD's from the illegally downloaded music that I have had.
  • I dont like Ruckus
  • If I can't keep my music I am not going to use the program, I am going to buy a CD, or borrow friends cd's and keep digital copies of them.
  • make it more known
  • i want to be able to burn music on a cd
  • It was terribly publicized, I was never able to find out how to sign up, the follow up articles in the paper never came and no email was sent. I wanted to sign up but no one I knew knew how to do it and we were all pretty dissapointed in the organization. (We are graduate students and didn't really have time to run around and check 10 sources until someone could answer our questions)
  • It was exceptionally well planned but the contract terms were unbelievable
  • it sounds like a good program, but I already pay for rhapsody
  • I liked it
  • I hope they continue this pilot next semester, but allow us to continue it at a reduced fee.
  • I do not feel that it is right to burn copies of songs onto a cd. However, I do like to listen to a few songs on my computer and don't see this any different than a radio station. However, I do think that downloading music should be illegal because many students burn cds from it. I wish I would've known about this service, so I could've taken advantage of it.
  • Ruckus was really stupid, I was thoroughly disappointed in it.
  • I didn't use it because I don't want music I can't keep/burn.
  • I LOVE IT! THANKS GUYS!
  • the program was a good way to preview music and kept me from buying a cd that i may not like
  • I tried ruckus and was frustrated to no end by the DRM. Once I uninstalled the client, the media I downloaded was rendered useless so it was a complete waste of my time.
  • I like it.
  • Didn't do it.
  • I loved it!
  • fdafdsa
  • KEEP IT PLEASE!
  • it would be great if this was included in tuition or school charges like everything else so we could access the full program so we could download music and burn it.
  • I wish i knew about it.
  • I read a little about it, but never inquired of more.
  • Ruckus didnt have a very good selection of popular music and movies like it led us to believe
  • A good idea that I think should be given to students for free for college use. If after four or five years they then graduate they will be so enamored with the program that they will agree to pay for it after they graduate.
  • It was really nifty.
  • The Ruckus client severly reduced computer preformance when in use.
  • I never used it
  • I can already get all the music i need for free without being put into some wierd program.
  • I pretty much ignored it.
  • It's great! You should continue it next year!
  • Song selection sucked.
  • I did not use it.
  • I don't like that we can't keep/burn the songs we downloaded. I uninstalled it.
  • liked it, hope it continues next semester bc i don't like the fact that i am going to have to delete the songs i downloaded bc the licences will expire....we should be able to have these songs for as long as we want even if we still can't burn them
  • It should have been broadcasted more.
  • i think the music pilot program was a great idea. i used rhapsody atleast 5-6 hours a day if not much more. i would be very happy if NC State continued to provide a music service for students and i'm sure i would continue using it regularly.
  • should come up with a way for the music downloaded to be burned by the students in the program
  • I didn't use it.
  • It was a good opportunity to see if the programs were really worth buying.
  • it didnt work on mac's and i couldnt use it.
  • I liked it, but I wish we could have transferred the music to portable devices.
  • It never worked after I installed it and then I was stuck with it.
  • Ruckus doesn't have enough of a music selection. And what's the point to downloading music only to your computer if you can't burn any cds from it? Ruckus is worthless.
  • I initially did not sign up for the program because I thought the email was a hoax. I think if it had been more publicized, there would have been more students signing up for it. I enjoyed having ruckus, and I wish that it was still available. The only thing I did not like about this was that after the trial period was over, I lost all of my files. I think that they should have remained available to me to listen to on my computer after the subscription runs out. After all, the university did pay for the music. Oh, and i would have like a better free movie selection.
  • they sucked and will be completely usless as soon as the semster is over, because you can never listen to the music you got from the services again.
  • i got it was a great idea... and should be continued
  • I think it's a great idea...and I suppose if it's already included in tuition I probably won't notice the cost.
  • i didnt use it because i didnt know how
  • My biggest problem was being unable to burn music to a CD or to convert it to a format other than .wma files. Most mp3 players, including mine, cannot play .wma files, therefore I used the service much less than I would have otherwise.
  • Good program- Rhapsody is terrible
  • The songs should be downloadable
  • i didnt know about it until about 2 weeks ago and if i had known about it i would have used it, but now i have limewire and i love it
  • this sounds like a wonderful program!
  • I don't like paying per song....it should be a one time fee
  • I loved it. I hope that it continues for on-campus residents, and that more people will take advantage of the great opportunity.
  • Should have taken adavantage of it
  • I think that it is ridiculus due to the fact that you could only keep the music on your computer if you continued subscribing to the service.
  • Ruckus was a poorly design software with no contacts for help. i signed up with the service and couldnt even get past the password screen due to program error. the one time i did get use it, the movie selection provided was very poor.
  • It was ok. Should have an Ipod Pilot Program like Duke.
  • Didn't know that ruckus didn't work w/ windows ME until I signed up
  • Downloading a song but not being able to keep it permanently without paying for seems to be a waste of valuable disk space to me.
  • i liked it! sometimes it wasn't perfect - would shut down, stop working, etc, but that's okay for a free program!
  • offer it again.
  • It appeared to be a nice idea, but I don't listen to music very often, and have very limited funds available, so I would only use a service to obtain music if it was either free or else at a cheap price determined by quantity of usage.
  • I like it
  • How does it work?
  • It's easier to listen to the radio, even if it involves not always getting to hear what you want to hear, than it is to constantly drain your bank account to buy it.
  • This needs to become a regular service.
  • It was kinda nice, but really otherwise worthless- I like CD's (actual CD's, not burned)
  • An interesting idea, but I was not particularly interested.
  • I was aware the services existed but I doubt I am alone saying that I saw _no_ information on _where_ and _how_ to sign up for the service. Also, I doubt the service would be worth a damn anyways, as they'd be focused on pushing trendy, pop music and those of us who listen to 80's metal have no need for such a service. The only reason I would ever download music illegally would be if I cannot find my kind of music, which used to be a problem for me (those old Slayer CDs are hard to come across).
  • I have not used a music download service before this semester. I am thankful for the pilot program. It has helped me to know what features and options to look for when I choose a service after I graduate.
  • I will need info on signing up.
  • Havent used it...dont want to I buy my cd's
  • I had to give my id to someone else 'cause it didn't work for the macintosh.
  • i hope it's offered again so i can try it out
  • been into music for awhile without kazaa or others, use ftp servers with a free for services agreement
  • Wish it lasted year-round...and you could switch to another program if you didn't like it.
  • They focused on a very shallow, pop-culture audience. too much attitude, too little content. they were trying to act cool and cater to what they thought most students would be interested in. What i really wanted was to be able to burn cds and not have to worry about constantly logging in.
  • I subscribed, but the subscription email was never sent to me, so I was unable to use the service. I tried to re-apply, but it would not let me because "my email had already been used."
  • none of the providers supported a mac platform
  • Keep it.
  • I never could really get the thing to work right. It wouldn't let me get to the music.
  • I didn't have time to figure out where to go or how to download the provider stuff
  • I did not sign up for any of them because I doubted that they had music of interest to me (my main interest is Japanese music, while the services only showed American music when I tried looking through what they offered).
  • It was a very good idea, I just think that it needed to be better publicized because a lot of people either disregarded the email or were confused by it. Also, it could have been better received had you been able to burn cds or upload music from the provider.
  • I couldn't download any songs through Napster, and only stream certain ones. I was very disappointed with what I got through the program.
  • I LIKE IT
  • this is my first experience dealing with music downloading. i thought it was a great program and i would use it in the future if i could get it free again. however, i do not get into downloading enough to pay for any service or use risky services like kaaza
  • a nice idea, and i hope that it or something similar can be continued in the future. I found it very useful.
  • It sounds like a good idea. I just wish I'd pursued it.
  • It was EXTREMELY confusing. The billing process was confounding.
  • Offer Midi files
  • yeah, i never got it to work, and as many times as i emailed resnet and called about it, no one knew how to help me. i was really excited about the program and it all seemed to be a waste of my time.
  • Never used it because I was too busy, but I meant to and would probably use it were it offered again.
  • it should have been more publisized in fliers round campus
  • I would have used it. Wish I had known about it.
  • It seemed sketch to me.
  • it's a good idea to download songs but I didn't participate b/c I would have had to pay for them if I wanted to burn them to a CD, which I wasn't willing to do.
  • Ruckus sucks. Licenses should last until the end of the semester not just one month. I also feel I was lied to, as I read that we could burn the music we downloaded onto cds for a fee, and this has turned out to be untrue.
  • I thought it was a good idea. I'd be nice if they were always provided free of charge, with a SMALL fee to burn to cds.
  • I tryed signing up but either i did something wrong or something went wrong with it and it wouldn't work for me so i just didn't worry about it.
  • Good opportunity but not very well advertised. When I received the startup email from Rhapsody, it didn't include any directions on how to get started, or a user name/password. I had to go to their website and play around until I found out how to access what I had signed up for.
  • I do not like not being able to burn my CD's for the car. That is the reason for downloading music. Taking away that makes downloading music pointless. I do not want to huddle around my laptop and listen.
  • I am using Ruckus. The music is fine, but I don't like that you can not burn them onto cd's. Also I don't like how all the old movies are free to watch but the new movies you have to pay for. I thought the sevice was supposed to be free.
  • good idea... continue it
  • It was a very good idea and should be continued
  • I thought it was a good way to sample CD's before I bought them, especially for older (90's) artists that are not often played on the radio.
  • I didn't sign up for it because I didn't want to be in a program that was free for awhile and then had to be paid for. It reminds me of those supposedly free CDs you get on TV, but in the fine print you have to get 10 more CDs for $40 each.
  • it was really awesome! i enjoyed being able to listen to whatever music i wanted to, when i wanted to; and not worrying about it being illegal. it was a good compromise. you should keep it going!
  • Cdigix sucks, they don't give you access movie or show sections of their service, just the music.
  • I wish I had known about it.
  • what is it
  • No iTunes music service plan.
  • it sucks
  • It stopped working in the middle of it and I was unable to get Napster to respond to help me understand why. The program was disappointing.
  • Why wasn't iTunes included?
  • I don't have time to download music, and from what I hear there isn't a lot of variety in the music pilot program.
  • I really liked it, I just wish that we got to keep our music at the end of the year. I would probably pay up to $25 at the end of the year
  • It was so frustrating not being able to play these files in an mp3 player or burn them to a cd or give them to friends. It was kind of nice at first, to be able to download them but with so many restrictions, dowloading form p2p sources becomes more appealling.
  • I didn't use it.
  • I missed out on it, but it didn't matter much to me.
  • No comment since I didn't use it (no time, too much homework)
  • only use is for listening to songs on your computer......i usually listen on cd's or ipod so therefore =useless
  • Should have included a partnership with iTunes as a major section of the campus population has iTunes software as well as iPods.
  • I just wish it didn't cost anything but I know it's not possible.
  • I didn't participate in it.
  • Let people know how to get the music sevice programs.
  • i thought it was a great idea and should be continued in the future
  • It was worthless. The music was not free as stated in the advertised email, and I uninstalled within 24 hours of getting Napster.
  • I think with more marketing during orientation and early in the Fall semester more students will sign up for the program.
  • I didn't sign up for anything
  • The program was underadversised and confusing, many people didn't use it because they didn't know what was going on.
  • I think a lot of people chose not to use the music pilot program because of the fact that you are not allowed to the keep the songs you download at the end of the program.
  • It was GREAT!!!
  • It was great. No more bootleggers, no more companies suing the campus. No more hacking to get movies. Everyone wins.
  • It was awesome, they should provide free music to every student every semester.
  • Tried to sign-up for Napster but was rejected several times (wouldn't work) and was therefore, unable to use it. It was also a confusing sign-up process for the service.
  • the music pilot program should have included vendors with more music that isn't mainstream pop.
  • It was a great program, but I don't think it's going to catch on
  • I never used it, i forgot to sign up
  • It should continue to be free, and there should be more songs on it
  • Loved using Rhapsody and came to use it frequently. It let me explore new music and find long forgotten music instantly. It is reliable and I felt confident of being virus free and not worrying about illegal activities.
  • Not a popular choice being that you can't copy cds from it and you lose the music.
  • i think it's a good idea overall, just sucks that you can't put the music on a CD, but it is still better than nothing, so no complaints
  • The Napster files could not be used in my mp3 player, and I couldn't burn them onto cds.
  • my fiance loved it
  • Wow. It sucked BADLY. I don't really want to use 219837598173947139847193874981374 proprietary media players, when I could just be using Winamp or Windows Media. Tell the music services to get a life and make the songs so I can play them in other players on the same computer, at least. I'm not so worried about porting it to my laptop or tablet... And the other half of that is... a) There was nothing I wanted b) I don't really want any illegal music...I'll just stick with what I have. c) I don't really buy CDs that much either, so you should add a "stayed the same" option up there. d) Why did you give us this "free stuff" for a semester and then take it away? That's just moronic. You can say "look, have some free music and movies...oops not anymore, now you have to pay for it." The people will just go back to using BT (bittorrent) and all those other stupid file-sharing proggies, instead of paying a fee for stuff they could technically get for free. *disclaimer* I haven't downloaded ANYTHING copyrighted (to my knowledge) this semester. So...don't think I'm using the evil programs.
  • The restrictions each service places on music are antithetical to my music listening/use habits. I use iTunes, and I own the music I buy and can do with it as I please.
  • I really enjoyed having Rhapsody. It let me sample bands before buying and exposed me to a much, MUCH wider variety of music than I ever would have heard otherwise. More exposure = new interests = more sales.
  • The e-mail was sent out too far in advance, It was confusing, and I never figured out how to take advantage of the free music downloads. It wouldn't let me in. so I went somewhere else.
  • to my knowledge, none of the music sharing programs were Mac compatible
  • My music needs are satisfied by internet radio stations, I do not need to download music.
  • I felt it was a wonderful idea. I enjoyed the service tremendously.
  • I don't think this program is necessary and I hope it is not coming from student fees.
  • The program does not have very much of a selection of music and it is somewhat hard to navigate. And I do not plan on using any more music services in the furture.
  • I think this was very enjoyable, and I had a good time with it.
  • I hated how Napster messed with my other media players... so I deleted it and re-installed the other ones
  • Why? You never told us what the program was to accomplish -> suspicion.
  • It's kinda stupid to use if you can't listen to it without your computer.
  • i liked it
  • It sounded like a good offer, but I didn't use it since I don't have my own personal computer.
  • I liked the idea very much. I think that the service should be continued, but I do not like Napster. It has a very limited selection and it downloads the songs in a format that is not compatible with itunes and my ipod, which makes the service less valuable to me.
  • I enjoyed it thoroughly.
  • never took interest
  • I did not use the pilot program, even though I knew about it because the music was to be taken away at the end of the program. I would like to see a music service that offered an unlimited amout of downloading for a monthly fee, kind of like napster's new "napster to go" service, except I have an Apple Ipod, and that can't be used with napster to go.
  • I really enjoyed being able to listen to music, but i wish we could change services if the service that we got from the one that we subscribed to was bad. Also, I wish it could last longer than just one semester.
  • I was using rhapsody before the program and tried Ruckus during the program. I would love to get Rhapsody free through the UNC system.
  • It seemed unusual.
  • Did not like the idea of having to pay for the music if I wanted to record or keep the music later on....so I didn't use the service.
  • i didn't use it, but wish i had.
  • It was a good idea, I just was too busy to think about doing the progam.
  • All the options offered in the pilot program were mediocre and should not be implemented at the cost of university funding. Also, a pay-to-download service should not have DRM of any kind, period.
  • There's no such thing as downloading free music, when you have to PAY for it.
  • advertise more
  • i didn't like having to renew the songs every 2 weeks or that they disappear. Ruckus did not have very many songs.
  • I love it, I wish it were free. I will not pay for it unless it is fairly cheap.
  • We need more Beatles music, how else are we going to start an educational revolution?
  • I have heard really good things about it but decided not to be apart of it because I prefer to buy CD and use no source of downloading.
  • Did not use it as none of the services were mac friendly
  • I do not trust this system because there has been limited amounts of information provided about it.
  • its good
  • Its great I think.
  • I enjoyed the program, I think it was a good idea.
  • offer more movies
  • I am concerned about the security of my computer while using music sharing programs, including file tracking and imbedded viruses.
  • All the music disappears when the free trial is over. That sucks.
  • The music available on the service is geared toward popular music, if you like smaller and less well known bands it doesnt provide you with any service becaue you can't download music from these bands
  • i would like to try a different music progam so that i could compare the two
  • Interesting concept, unsure whether or not it actually decreases piracy
  • didn't know about it
  • It was great!! They should do it more often.
  • didnt know about it
  • Was awesome, I loved having Rhapsody!
  • Have it free again and provide better service than Ruckus
  • Do a movie pilot program at lower quality, so i can preview movies and choose to buy them or not w/o having to either rent them or borrow from a friend
  • Personally, the use of DRM puts me off. Fair Usage rights are trampled horribly by such measures; if I bought the music, I should be able to use it (personally; I'm not advocating distribution) whenever/wherever I want to. So I don't use any of the current paid music services.
  • Its bad becuase you cant burn cds
  • NO, sounds like a great idea.
  • I am not going to take part in it
  • Not mobile, I would rather download music that I could use on my mp3 player.
  • After I signed up for it, I couldn't download it and had no way of receiving support, which was very frustrating because I would have enjoyed the service.
  • I liked it and want it again next year (for free!!!)
  • send more info! that sounds great!
  • IT DIDN"T WORK FOR ME
  • I hate it
  • From the Napster website: "It is necessary to maintain a Napster subscription in order to continue access to songs downloaded through the Napster service." I would never pay for a service that would not allow me to access the songs I downloaded when I payed for them. Although the music pilot programs are a proactive step, they are still flawed and I currently have no intention of paying for one, nor wasting my time on a free trial.
  • don't like it
  • Didn't know we had it
  • awesome, hope it's back next year.
  • Limiting each student to one service made it difficult for the individual to decide which service would be best.
  • didnt know about it
  • Napster sucks. I want to be able to download MP3's so I can play them on my player.
  • Make it more known
  • due to napster changing there policies mid program i enjoyed it less
  • It's useless because you can't save the actual files because of copyright to use on an mp3 player or burn to a cd.
  • it should continue to be free
  • I had great difficulty understanding the whole process
  • it would have been nice to be able to make cds from the songs downloaded without purchasing them.
  • I was unaware when i signed up for napster that i would still have to purchase my music! had i known this, i would have signed up for ruckus.
  • I think it's a nice gesture.
  • None of the music services supported alternative operating systems, or even Apple systems. I signed up for the Napster service only for the purposes of helping to reverse engineer the protocol in order to help develop an open source linux client. Had any of the music services supported my devices I would quite likely have used it much more.
  • it was fun for a semester, i don't use p2p software or download illegal material - so it was nice to have music at my fingertips
  • NCSU needs to continue allowing its students free service to these music services
  • I was frustrated by the inability to move the music out of Napster and play it with another player. Without the equalizer settings and being able to combine it with my other playlists, it was just too much of a hassel.
  • Where can I find out about programs like this?
  • it is not very useful and rhapsody is not very helpful when there are problems
  • The effort was greatly appreciated, even though I'm don't download that much music.
  • I didn't know too much about it and forgot that NC State was offering a program like that.
  • nono
  • It wouldn't let me download for free. I never got an e-mail saying anything was free but rather I had to pay!!!
  • I did not use it.
  • Napster was fairly irritating - Rhapsody looks like it is probably the best choice of all 4. It would be fantastic to have the music pilot program again next year.
  • They should keep doing it.
  • It only offers music from America, it is hard to find music from other continents.
  • make it FREE!
  • It wasn't as great as i hoped, P2P is much eaiser
  • As long as a variety of songs are available, both old and newer songs, and as long as I don't have to download a lot of applications to get the service to work, I will sign up for one of the services that NC State offers. However, NC state needs to do a better job of informing students about this service.
  • try it again to see if more people catch on
  • Have not used it.
  • i wish you could burn the songs, kinda pointless to sit on your computer
  • I didn't use it b/c none of the services worked for a Macintosh. What's up with that? I ended up letting a friend use mine.
  • It should have been advertised more so more students would here about it.
  • I don't think that it's necessary for student education and whatever funding goes towards the program would be better spent elsewhere.
  • not really
  • It was good, but you could not burn the music onto CD's and Ruckus (the one I chose) did not have a wide selection of music, including many classic/popular songs.
  • ADVERTISE MORE
  • I would have used it if I knew more about it
  • I did not use it but I heard that there was not a large selection of music to be downloaded.
  • My raphsody never worked.
  • i'd like to be able to use them all then choose which i liked most, ruckus was blehg
  • I wish I would have known about it
  • I think it is a great idea to offer these services free to on campus students. It is a great way to preview quality recording before buying CDs.
  • I think that it should be publisized that these programs are free through resnet.
  • can't burn the music!!
  • should be able to burn CDs for free
  • it was really nice to have that availability of songs available to me.
  • really cool idea. I appreciate the fact that the university doesnt deny that there is a problem, but rather offers safer alternatives. If I didnt already have Itunes money, I would have utiliaed the program
  • I don't really know how to use it.
  • It sucks I'll have to illegally download all the songs that will self-distruct when the subscription expires.
  • I signed up and tried to use it, but it wouldnt work for me. I was very upset.
  • Rhapsody didnt have a lot of songs i was interested in hearing. i.e. country, some christian bands
  • It didn't work and I never got the appropriate information to use the program.
  • I think it is a good program and should seriously be considered a permanent fixture.
  • It's a great idea.
  • Ruckus was horrible
  • EXCELLENT - with all the rate hikes it was nice to see a benefit of being a member of a university campus on the technology frontlines.
  • keep it free for students. I did not download songs illegally before then though
  • MORE!
  • I wish i had known about it.
  • In the case of using Ruckus you had to keep renewing licences every few months. It would have been better to just let the licences last until the end of the semster unless renewed.
  • I thought that it was nice that they offered such a wide variety of vendors. There could have been more information about the vendors because it would have influenced my choice for the vendors. I also not having the ability to listen the music offline is a put off.
  • crappy
  • i thought it was a hassle to downlaod the music and I didnt use it b/c it wasn't in mp3(or some other widely used) format
  • successful!
  • 3
  • It was a nice idea to give students free DLing of music software.
  • Maybe information on this program, can be emailed to the students on campus.
  • None of the services supported linux or unix-based operating systems. They also did not support open music standards. Because of these two reasons, I can't recommend the music pilot program.
  • Ruckus is horrible. HORRIBLE. It has no selection of music, I could find maybe 1 out of every 10 bands I searched for. Also it was no in mp3 format, and I could not play the files in Winamp (my prefered player). I was severely displeased. Ruckus is crap.
  • It was somewhat confusing to use and didn't have a wide enough variety of music
  • didn't know of it; i use WinMX regularly
  • Didn't use it, sceptical of the whole idea
  • napster worked awesome...at first. i used napster on three separate computers, then, i upgraded my HD with raid0 (reformat)... it would not let me download any of the songs i owned back to that same computer. this problem could get bad if i used napster for a long period of time. if i had to reformat more than once, there would probably be many of my favorite songs i could never access. with limewire i don't have to put up with any of this you may only download 3 times crap. i would pay for napster after the free period ended if it werent so restrictive about downloading music. Right now hardly any of my favorite songs work on my main computer.
  • We should be able to keep a certain number of the songs:(
  • The program I used was crap. I got a new computer and then it wouldnt let me download the software to the new computer. The music selection was alright. I signed up for ruckus because it promised TV and Movie selections. "Selection" is a horrid word. the selection was miserable and never changed. the movies were outdated and it was just crap.
  • OKay
  • is there any way you could connect iTunes or myTunes Redux with everyone at NC State?
  • Good idea, but many downloaders prefer to remain as anonymous as possible, so when these services go back to 'payment required' terms, I'd rather they don't have my name and computer on file.
  • I think it sucks. It should be for free, not charged.
  • I hope it can be extended during next year.
  • I like iTunes better. I don't steal music from p2p services anyway.
  • IT DOES NOT WORK FOR MACINTOSH (Apple) Computer!!!
  • It's great and you should continue having it.
  • struck me as too commercial - i didn't even open the emails.
  • I used Ruckus because they were offering movies to download. I was not impressed with the movies that Ruckus offered, nor was I impressed with the quality.
  • I knew it existed, but I never got the e-mail or anything explaining how on earth I was supposed to recieve it or set it up, and so I missed out on it... A fact which has me rather displeased, to say the least.
  • The entire music downloading fiasco is all just a big sham. The music industry is pulling the wool over our eyes and we can't even see that. It doesn't matter if we download music from each other. CD sales have risen in the past 3 years, even though their argument is that CD sales are dropping. There is absolutely no need for the RCIAA and their tyrannical watch over college students downloading music.
  • I've had many friends say positive things about the services but I didn't think I personally would find it useful.
  • I wish i would've taken advantage of it...heard good things from those who used it.
  • It seems like a really good idea, though I didn't know about it.
  • I loved it and I hope i can get it again next year!
  • Good program. It should continue.
  • put the music software on the computing essentials CD along with the Norton antivirus and more people will sign up for it...remember to say its FREEE!!!
  • do it again, i want to try next year
  • It's the thought that counts.
  • i never got to use it they never responded to several emails to customer support TERRIBLE i felt cheated
  • did not get it to work...

Question:
Are there any services that Information Technology Division should provide that are not currently provided?

  • More wireless!!!
  • not sure
  • More software available for students
  • We should be able to check our ncsu email from our cellphones!!!! I think squirrelmail has plugins for it. Id even be for a switch to horde mail.
  • streaming visual art stations
  • A completely wireless campus.
  • I don't think so.
  • Tutorials are fun
  • None, pleased overall.
  • can't think of any
  • Many people need to know how to do basic troubleshooting and basic skills to avoid problems with computers.
  • Make Zone Alarm available to all students, it is the only program that has kept viruses and trojans on my computer, even though I have anti-virus and additional adware prgrams installed on my computer.
  • not that I know of
  • I dont know
  • Discounted prices on MatLab? I noticed in Lee that it's a 10Mbps network connection, while in other dorms it's 100Mbps. It might sound whiney to "only" be able to downoad at 1.2MB/sec, but when I can go to a friend's dorm in Sullivan and hit 4MB/sec or more sometimes... Note that I really love the connection I'm getting with ResNet--it's much cheaper than my DSL at home and 20x faster (here in Lee; faster in other places).
  • Free Microsoft Word
  • probably
  • not that i know of
  • i'm not too sure right now.
  • I would like information about different types of viruses and how they affect your computer.
  • not that i can think of at the moment
  • Link students to information on installing copies of OpenOffice onto their computers. Not all students want to hand microsoft another damned huge sum of money just to do their homework.
  • None that I am aware of.
  • Not that I know of.
  • a music sharing service just for NCState
  • Free firewalls
  • None that I can fathom.
  • ITunes, if only a few songs worth, at least we would be able to have the mp3s.
  • speed up the computers
  • A number to call for network status. sysnews is good but if your service is down then you can't check it. A notification in nontechnical terms of why a service outage occured should be sent to the emails of people that have recieved network downtime.
  • nto that i can think of
  • campus wide wireless, including all dorm rooms.
  • no. you should bring back the music pilot every year though.
  • I can't think of any.
  • More training in software.
  • Not Sure
  • I don't know of any
  • Students frequently use instant messengers like AIM and MSN to coordinate projects. Some students don't have accounts and it is hard to map account names to actual students. ITD should provide a Jabber server which would use the same usernames and passwords as the rest of Unity.
  • I do not know.
  • It is all very good, nothing I can really say bad about it.
  • Donate money to transportation, or exert pressure on transportation to build another parking deck.
  • I can't think of any
  • No not really
  • Maple and programs along that line students should be able to use from their pc or laptop w/o having to pay them.
  • There should be adware protection integrated in the virus protection or it should be easier to install from the computing essentials cd.
  • a university supported firewall, and possibly spyware removers
  • I don't know.
  • SPAM CONTROL FOR WEBMAIL?????????????? SPAM CONTROL FOR WEBMAIL?????????????? SPAM CONTROL FOR WEBMAIL?????????????? SPAM CONTROL FOR WEBMAIL?????????????? SICK AND TIRED OF GETTING PORN AND PRESCRIPTION DRUG ADS IN MY WEBMAIL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SICK AND TIRED OF GETTING PORN AND PRESCRIPTION DRUG ADS IN MY WEBMAIL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SICK AND TIRED OF GETTING PORN AND PRESCRIPTION DRUG ADS IN MY WEBMAIL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ...and yeah, I purposely wrote it all in CAPS and copied/pasted...hopefully that would show you how pissed off it makes me to get all this junk in my webmail on a daily basis
  • lan party games sometimes if someone would organize that it might be fun to have as a break somedays
  • not sure
  • How to install your antivirus cd-rom
  • omit
  • Lifetime virus protection would be nice as an NC State alumni (do we get that) I mean, we pay so much damned tuition it'd be nice to get something like that out of it.
  • I think that some internet consistency might be good. We had dropouts and internet losses for a total of probably 10 hours over the whole year. While that may not sound like a lot spread out over that time, it can be frustrating to lose the internet or have dropouts when you're trying to do homework.
  • Not that I know of
  • Not sure on such short notice. I could prolly think of some....
  • Most of the programs that are found in the labs, students should be able to access from there rooms. Ex: Solid Works
  • Rental of digital project systems w/ a deposit
  • Can't think of any.
  • I dont know
  • Help with hardware issues. Like malfuncions and whatnot
  • Why in the world am I gettting all this spam on my Unity Account? Please put a spam blocker on the e-mail service. Explain to me whether or not using Outlook is hurting my computer and leaving it vulnerable to outside intruders.
  • not off the top of my head
  • I don't know if this is technically your realm, but the information on spam filtering on the computer essentials type website is completely incomprehensible to me. A step-by -step setup would be really useful.
  • A restricted cgi/php/perl access for the student webpages.
  • I don't if Symmantec Anti-Virus software ever updates and so I do worry that I'm not fully protected from the ever-evolving viruses out there.
  • Keep the online music programs free.
  • NO!
  • Can't think of any
  • not sure
  • More virus-control options
  • more seminars to help leanr how to keep your pc safe, and clean
  • Better labs. Particulary Sullivan. The other night it took me 20 minutes to go down there and print 8 pages of PDF, all because of how slow the computers and printers are. And half the time the printers are broken, jammed, or out of toner.
  • /
  • /
  • Wireless in Dorms
  • not sure
  • Filesharing. You know you want to. Forget about consequences and give us what we really want.
  • I don't think so.
  • Not that I can recall. They do a really good job of making themsleves visible and being available. The Help Desk was awesome when I called freaking out about a virus.
  • more linux EOS labs
  • php and mysql support for personal webpages.
  • i believe that the services provided are sufficent
  • Antispyware software
  • Maybe think about having remote access to all prograams on the network. I know being able to use Macromedia on my laptop through putty or F-Secure would be a nice bonus.
  • more wireless access points (especially in dorm activity rooms)
  • An actual free music program
  • Computer help, not just network help
  • i dont know
  • More movie channels!! I like that we have Showtime now but we could do without all the HBO's and maybe add Cinemax or Starz.
  • More advertisement of the current services would be helpful
  • I would prefer more wireless access points as opposed to upgrading switches.
  • no, I thank you for all that you do provide for us.
  • naw
  • not that I know of
  • uncapped
  • I don't know.
  • Free everything, help buying a laptop
  • Not that I know of.
  • Chat rooms
  • Free music
  • Wireless internet in all Campus Residence halls, not just in the computer labs and lounges.
  • nah.
  • Free ITunes and Ipods, like Duke, yeah I said it
  • More than just Antivirus software, maybe other security software available for free
  • fdafdas
  • I came in beginning of spring semester, so i didnt find out about the services. if they informed new incoming students of the benefits as well it would help a lot.
  • More wireless access accross the campus is heavily needed
  • I would like a list of of what software is avaliable for students to download for free. This should be posted on a website with links to the download page.
  • yes, virtual desktops to any operating system. We should have 100mbits in the dorm so we can use the virtual desktops easier.
  • The Information Technology Division needs to address the large amount of malicious traffic on the network. An unprotected computer has about 1-2 min connected to resnet before its infected. This happened to me and two of my roommates (didn’t even have time to download and install antivirus). This needs to bee addressed.
  • none known
  • no, they're doing well
  • Wireless info on how to set it up in the apartment
  • I don't know.
  • free cable tv
  • no comment at this time
  • Not Sure
  • none, everyone is doing a good job
  • 24 Line for computer problems
  • Color printers are hard to find, and I was required to print something in color. It is also expensive. It would be cheaper and possibly easier if I could use my printer with VCL.
  • I am not sure what they do and dont provide.
  • I'm happy at present
  • i do not know
  • a firewall program IE Zone Alarm which is free from www.zonealarm.com and has saved me from hundreds of thousands of intrusions.
  • I'd like to see ITD provide a bittorrent tracker for students to use for their own stuff, I.E. films students have made that they want to share, and then block the port bittorrent trackers use to the outside internet. This seems like a good idea after the Mac OS X Tiger incident... although students' file-sharing schemes isn't our responsibility and this would only be yet another server to worry about. Scratch that idea.
  • No suggestion
  • Access to lab software in dorms would be incredibly useful
  • Cannot think of any.
  • No, everything seems all right as it is, I think.
  • More documentation on the website and better navigation on the website.
  • information on K drive use. how to save space and what files and folders are neccessary to the proper maintenace of your k drive.
  • I never got any antivirus software from ResNet. That would have been nice. I had to pay for it myself.
  • A spyware/adware program would be nice.
  • No, IT Division did well.
  • remote connection to windows software available in labs
  • a way to get rid of spyware/adware?
  • I would use a free movie/show service much more than I would a free music service.
  • iTunes music service place
  • program developing tools, such as compilers
  • For me, the largest use of the labs was to print documents i worked on at home (not having a printer). a better means of printig these files would be really nice. perhaps an easier to access storage means (like fpt but web accessable?) would help things. also, the ability to print to a lab printer from a remote location (is this already possible?) would be nice.
  • Can't think of one.
  • I do wish there was wireless access in the Design school including the design library. They recommend laptops with wireless, but the only network there is not a public one.
  • The only thing that I know of is a service for when the network is down. Usually when the Internet "went out" it was only for maybe a minute, but a few times it was longer. It would be nice if there was a telephone service or something where I could get an idea of what's going on and how long it will take to fix.
  • None comes to mind.
  • I can't think of any right now
  • yes. they should provide something along the lines of a troubleshooting cd for removing viruses, trojans, etc., given that resnet is incapable of handling the problem all by itself.
  • i can't think of any.
  • not that i know of.
  • Not that I know of
  • none that I can think of.
  • Free or extensively discounted copies of expensive software like Photoshop, Dreamweaver, 3D Studio Max, Microsoft Office, etc.
  • Not that I know of.
  • i dunno
  • not sure
  • I would like more documentation on how to integrate the eos system with our dorm room computers. Specifically I would like to know how to mount my afs space on my dorm room computer.
  • none i can think of
  • More Linux awareness/support is always good.
  • None that I can think of
  • free printing in computer labs
  • not that i know of
  • not sure
  • not in my opinion.
  • Novell Application Launcher services in dorm rooms would be nice.
  • A program with ability to purchase a laptop with funding from finanical aid and ipod program - both of these would be open to all undergrads not just freshman.
  • OCR software and perhaps some planning/scheduling/calendar software. I know these aren't services, bnut they would be helpfule.
  • free ipods
  • I would like to have PHP or some other scripting environment available for my personal website.
  • What do you do? Please provide information of the services that are provided.
  • Perhaps ITD can be more visible on campus? The only thing I see about it is when I came to my residence hall last Fall.
  • There should be a way to check out dvds and watch them and return them in like 2 or 3 days, or be able to download them like ruckus allows you to do, but have a more extensive library then ruckus.
  • EMAIL SPAM BLOCKING!!!!!!!!!!
  • Video Conferencing would be nice
  • Not that I'm aware of.
  • i dont know
  • None come to mind.
  • I would have liked to know about the free music downloading service.
  • None that I can think of at this time.
  • nothing comes to mind
  • make antivirus things easier to get/install
  • They should give me Adobe Photoshop for free
  • There were a times throughout the semester that almost all of Sullivan was without internet for a short amount of time. I think ResNet should send out an email to the affected users, explaining the reason for the downtime. If the downtime was planned, then an email should be sent ahead of time so we can plan accordingly.
  • I2 Hub
  • don't think so
  • dont think so
  • high definition cable
  • Not that I know of.
  • i don't know
  • I am not sure.
  • Equipment rental or a reduced rate buying system.
  • No, I think the department has alot of aspects covered.
  • Can't think of any
  • Better support for Mac
  • can't think of any right now
  • I do not know.
  • I feel that IT does a fairly good job on the NC State campus.
  • Resnet should assess the impact on its bandwidth and try to partner with vonage for land lines in rooms. It is cheaper than what the the university is currently promoting(minus the initial setup).
  • None that I can think of
  • weekend hours for help desk!
  • more webspace for ncsu students. NCState has 3 tb (last I heard) and I think only 1 tb is used. I think alot of students dont even use their webspace, but for those of us who do, 30mb is pretty small. 60 mb would be nice...
  • FIX THE LAB COMPUTERS - SLOW AS CHRISTMAS [judging by the way the hard drive grinds incessantly, i'd say RAM would fix the problem. If you need an extra technician to help, i've been working with computers for years and would like a summer job.]
  • Not that currently come to mind
  • yes
  • 3
  • not that i can think of at the moment.
  • Not that I know of
  • More help sessions in residence halls for virus and trojan type problems.
  • ws_ftp is no longer free but is still the recomended ftp on your website. I don't know anything about those kind of things so maybe someone that does can look into and find more free programs for us poor students.
  • not a clue
  • None that I can think of.
  • free ipod deal
  • Free laptops to all incoming freshmen...and give us choices like IBM thinkpads or Powerbooks...they dont have to be new models....just put all the free software on the computing essentials CD on the harddrive of the computer...think of the savings ResNet would wrack up by not having to buy all those cds!!
  • firewall and spyware services
  • wireless

Question:
Feel free to add comments below about ResNet or any of the above questions.

  • The 'techs' are great at fixing any of my computer problems and are very good with explaining the problems. The techs are the best part of the resnet service.
  • You should make the options more "seperable" between phone, internet, cable, etc.
  • it took too long to restore internet to wolf village
  • i wish that we had wireless services that we could use in Bragaw--it gets irritating having to plug in everything in order to go online, while other halls have wireless that they may use
  • good service, quick and helpful responses to e-mail
  • resnet is pretty good stuff
  • When is Greek Court goin to be able to get wireless internet? Also it would be great, and i think it was started this semester. That we sign up our computer for resnet use and we can plug into any outlet within our fraternity house on greek court to get internet access, instead of just turning on certain outlets in peoples rooms. I'd rather be able to sign my computer up and bring it anywhere in the fraternity house on greek court.
  • please, the rent of this is too much, not all people can pay....
  • great!
  • The ResNet Office in the Hillsborough building is incredibly difficult to find. The guard at the front desk should know where the offices are to point students in the write direction, or a desk assistant should be hired to give directions, OR there should be a clear map.
  • ResNet is awesome! It is very fast and reliable.
  • i like redhat, it's a very practical application that i would like to see more around ncsu
  • please...atleast during the exam period...i would really hope i dont have to run to the library or any other computer labs at 2 am..because the internet connection is POOR..or well lets quote it by saying IT SUCKS!!!!...and well when are u guys going to fix the printers....and make it more easy to use...i've wasted hell lot of money on printers...all that time..and they dont work...and is there any responsible person who's assigned in those labs...or someone who knows more about computers!!!!! no wireless connection on residency halls...come'on....u are forced to sit in a room...and finish ur hw. ..i hope we see some improvements......g'luck......
  • I think you guys should do something and give us free Ipods or PDA's like Duke did.
  • nice networks :o
  • None can I think of.
  • ResNet is great
  • Good service, more wireless around campus would be even better.
  • I love resnet but when it goes down I get really upset!
  • Just as in the past, I have been very pleased with the quality of service offered by ResNet.
  • The antivirus software should be easier to obtain and install.
  • They people at the help desk are really mean and very unhelpful. I wish they were nicer because I pay for Resnet which pays for their salery. However they are so mean that I will never call them again!
  • I don't understand why my cell phone information is relavent since it is not through NC State.
  • Are you hiring network technicians part time? :) I'm a CCNA
  • Good service, only problem I encountered was that on days a big program/homework assignment was due, the system would crash over at the EOS labs.
  • Its fast and i like it a lot
  • it is too expensive
  • Thanks for providing us with no download/bandwidth restrictions/quotas for how much we can download and upload per month (I know that some ISPs are starting to do this). The speed at which I can use the network here is phenomenal! A suggestion--don't require everyone here to use a virus scanner, but if this is necessary, PLEASE use something other than Symantec. Symantec makes the worst computer programs in history! I know of no other set of programs where you have to download a removal tool to completely get rid of a program because the packaged uninstallation tool doesn't completely kill it. Symantec spends too much time scanning your computer and slows EVERYTHING to a crawl. At least half of the time it doesn’t work; I find that Trendmicro’s “Housecall” free online scanner works much better at finding and killing viruses. Just require that students keep their Windows Updates current and highly recommend that they bring their own cheapo router (wireless if necessary). This will literally keep out 99.99% of the viruses out there. I would also highly recommend the use of SpywareBlaster; instead of being a retroactive solution to spyware, it is proactive and keeps ActiveX-based spyware (for IE) and tracking cookies (for both IE and Mozilla-based browsers) from installing themselves. Ad-Aware SE and SpyBot are great, but why use those to get rid of spyware when you can prevent it in the first place? Whenever I scan with Ad-Aware and Spybot (~once a month or less) I never have any objects—ever. A note for improving the installation instructions for Spybot--including this might be helpful to reduce spyware infestations: Right after installing, download ALL the latest updates. Mode>Tools>Hosts File>Add Spybot hosts file--this is a list of websites known to distribute spyware; if a user goes to these sites or is redirected to one, the hosts file links it back to the user's loopback address thus keeping them from visiting the site. Mode>Normal Mode (to keep people from screwing with settings) Immunize!!! This also helps keep spyware from loading onto your computer. HIGHLY recommend that students use the latest version of Firebox or Safari as we all know that IE is...crap. Thunderbird (also from Mozilla) is great for e-mail; I’ve never had any problems and it works much better than Outlook and Outlook Express, which are great at distributing viruses! Thunderbird….doesn’t. Plus it has a built-in learning spam filter (not that this does me any good since I don’t get spam in my NCSU e-mail…that’s what my yahoo e-mail is for). Also—please recommend that people try to figure out for themselves what is going on if their computer has a problem. The internet is a huge source of help and the chances are that someone has had this problem before and has posted a fix! For the first two weeks of school I literally fixed 10-20 computers in my spare time, with 90% of them being from the “laptop sections” even though I’m not in that program. (Thanks for not installing all the latest Windows Updates….) I’m the go-to guy for everyone who knows that I’m good with computers; if there’s a problem they come running. While I didn’t charge anything for these fixes they could have all been avoided. (I still fix quite a few computers…but most of the time they let me install my group of anti-spyware things so I don’t have to deal with that problem on their computer again) After having worked at a computer repair shop for the past two summers, being CCNA certified, and performing spyware and virus removal on almost every computer the latest summer I was there—I had no use for the Computing Essentials CD, but I’m sure that 90% of the people coming here did have use for it—how many actually used it, that’s another matter… About the questions in the survey: Note that the EOS lab I use is in Daniels and was for my CSC116 class. We have 5 devices running from the ResNet connection in our room using my wireless router—2 desktops, 2 laptops, and an Xbox. ResNet handled this load quite well! I don’t use the music downloading services because I would much rather physically own the music (in the form of a CD) and then transfer it to my computers over Apple’s Lossless encoder. It seems that I’m in the minority of students. Primary OS: Windows Server 2003 Enterprise Edition SP1 (desktop; soon to be dual boot with [hopefully] Gentoo or Realm Linux) XP Pro SP2 (notebook) I will be buying an Apple sometime over the summer, hopefully a Powerbook G5 if they’re released in time. Sorry for such a long response, but I hope it’s helpful. Thanks again for providing us with ResNet and the great computing and network infrastructure here at NCSU.
  • it needs to be less buggy. i've been randomly dropped multiple times throughout this semester.
  • I will not.
  • Fast, but at times it can be laggy.
  • Please get the internet explorer fixed so that it links to NCSU webassigns and webmails. It's really becoming a problem and pain in the ass to deal with. Maybe our tuition could help pay for it or something.
  • its a great service
  • res net rocks yahhhhh!!!
  • Get ESPNU and CSTV.
  • You need to give all new students a real pilot program during orientation. You have to tell them how to install the virus software and you need to teach them how to set it up so that it updates the virus definitions software automatically. It'd also be helpful if you taught them a bit of common sense on "shady" websites. Just teach them that if it's a web page covered in porn and pop-up ads and it tries to install software on their machines, they need to click "no" and get away from that website. If the website opens up new windows (one after another, keeps trying to install software, etc) teach them to turn their computers off. Lord knows that the start of the last fall semester was an IT nightmare. I think that better education is necessary to prevent that stuff from happening again.
  • seems fine to me
  • I had virus trouble after self-reformatting my computer, so I called the ResNet help desk. They sent out a technician later that day and he (I beleive his name was Greg) installed the symantic anti-virus software and set up my computer with all functions that would protect my computer. He was informative and helpful, so I am glad that the service is avaible and very appreciative of the help provided from the Help Desk and the technician. Thank you.
  • Keep up the good work.
  • I have had problems where the connection is down for a while and i could not get online ...maybe try and fix it so there is less connection problems
  • Ya'll are doing a great job!
  • my internet is always slow...:(
  • Because I didnt take the antivirus thing off my computer before putting that cd in it. Therefore my computer was totally screwed up! I spent many hours on the phone doing stuff to fix it. It was awful!!
  • None, thanks.
  • I had Symantec Antivirus but still had to reformat my computer due to spyware and Adware, you should give free protection or a discounted price on protection to protect from spyware and adware.
  • Wireless access at Wolf Village. Hot Ethernet ports in the work rooms at WV
  • its a great connection
  • thanks for all of your help
  • Keep the music pilot program. It will persuade students to live on campus and get ResNet.
  • The wireless campus initiative is going very well. I loved the idea of the voting system. It also got students involved. I hear lots of my friends getting their friends to vote for them to win what building they want.
  • I was a little unsatisfied with having to have three technicians to fix my computer, but other than that I am glad the service is provided. They were very nice.
  • It was impossible to get anyone to come to my room to fix my computer. I was told for a week straight that someone would contact me soon to come up to look at it. I gave them my cell phone number because I got tired of sitting in my room waiting on them. They never used it, and usually I was just down the hall. Because ResNet took so long to come help, I gave up got a friend to fix my computer instead.
  • Very fast and relaible connection, only down 2-3 times this year.
  • Very fast and relaible connection, only down 2-3 times this year.
  • I do not have any comments.
  • The kiosks are slow and they don't work sometimes. The unity account seems so outdated compared to yahoo and hotmail. I have heard from many people that the service technicians are inefficient and they don't know what they are doing.
  • It is very nice, fast, reliable, service
  • See item 39.
  • I think that this years computing went very smoothly. I didn't get as many viruses or trojans than I did last year. Overall, I was very pleased with the computing at State in '04-'05.
  • thanks!
  • It would be neat if ResNet Technician can come to my room and see if the virus protection is installed, and make sure that my PC is safe (guarded).
  • Despite having a top dollar anti-virus program, every year my computer has gotten a virus and my computer has been reformatted twice from it. There are too many virus's running around here.
  • I think there should be better people available for use at the help desk because the people I have talked to do not help to much.
  • The survey was a little longish I thought, and the percentage questions made me feel goofy, like I should get out a calculator. Consider revising this for next year.
  • your connections are sometimes intermittent and disconnect me at times, it would be appreciated if this were fixed, though I am unsure of the reason it occurs
  • Occasional outages of ResNet was very annoying.
  • I at one time had a problem with my computer. When I called the help number they told me they could not help me and wouldn't send anyone to check on it. A few days later there was a ResNet technician in my suitemates room, I asked him to take a quick look at my computer and he was able to fix it relatively quickly.
  • hope y'all have a nice summer.
  • ResNet was fine other than it going down freqently due to some problems especially a problem during times when things are due like webassign, maple, etc.
  • free microsoft office would be nice, and photoshop, dream weaver would be good too. but all free
  • Thanks, my internet has worked great!
  • omit
  • It seems like this year it crashed a lot more. Also, there are some stupid people out there that don't know much about computers, and they won't go to workshops. You guys would be better off sending out e-mails like "HEY DONT OPEN UP THAT FILE!" "HEY JUST BECAUSE IT SAYS YOU MUST DOWNLOAD TO VIEW SITE DOESNT MAKE IT SAFE" You know, stuff like that.
  • Should give out this information to transfer students because I was not aware it existed.
  • I don't think you should charge a fee if someone comes to the room and there wasn't a problem with the computer. I didn't know if there was a problem or if I just didn't know how to do something and they were going to fine me if the computer was fine so I didn't have anyone come by. Some of us aren't trying to make you make extra trips- we just don't understand everything about computers.
  • I am very pleased with the resnet service on campus.
  • thanks
  • I do not think that it is necessary to require each room to have and pay for a phone line. It is neither useful nor beneficial. However the opportunity to have a phone line hooked up to ones room should always be an option.
  • It has been fun.
  • the service sucks. It randomly shuts off. Road runner at my house is faster
  • great job guys!
  • I'm moving off campus after four years in the dorms, and one of the things I will miss most will be the convenience of having a resnet tech come to my room to work on problems with my computer. Thanks for all ya'll have done for me over the years!
  • As I type this, I am going through Nomad because ResNet is down. That ain't cool.
  • Service was very good and helpful this year. Keep up te good work!!
  • you're fantastic. I love ResNet
  • The ResNet site does not seem to be updated a lot. The site linked from the student page has information pertaining to Spring 2004. Also during this semester there seemed to be several periods where the network kept going down and hindered e-mail, browsing, instant messaging, etc. When I petitioned ResNet I got back a very generic responce (it was obviously some form letter because my friend got the exact same response when he petitioned ResNet and they both had the same spelling errors). The stability of the network needs to be looked into so that this downtime is not a common occurance anymore.
  • I've often experienced 'hickups' in the ResNet service, temporary moments of lag in either game console or computer games. There have been times where both my suitemates and my computers' could not even access the internet.
  • I think that the service is great how it is.
  • I needed something from resnet/the help desk only a few times, but was very unimpressed the times I did need them. The only helpful Resnet person I knew quit because it was too much of a time commitment, maybe you should think about shortening the time committment or hiring more people so the quality people you have do not quit, because the people I dealt with had no people skills and were not puncual and were unable to help me with my problems.
  • no thank you
  • i think your aol guy should stay on all the time even if no one is there, so people can leave a msg. its so convienent i wish ncsu recommended a laptop more with wireless upon coming to college.
  • My computing essentials cd did not work correctly. I tryed to download the semantic softwear, but my computer still tells me that i havent done that.
  • ResNet is good, I had a problem with my computer, so I had to reformat, but when I came back online, in two days, I had 9000 viruses hit my computer. I have Symantec, Adaware, and Spybot.
  • I like ResNet. Really.
  • I wish resnet was available to students during summer break! It's the best ever!
  • ResNet was a very helpful and useful service. I enjoyed using it.
  • /
  • /
  • Symantec is suppose to load and be working everytime my computer is on but this is in fact not the case. i have had to uninstall and reinstall this program several times and even now i feel it is not working as it should.
  • Try and make it Cheaper please!!!
  • keep up the good work
  • Sometimes, resnet internet access would blackout. In the past year, the net access was cut about 4 times with each one lasting from 15 mins to 90 mins. My suite and adjacent suite reported the same situation.
  • I honestly think it would be better if ResNet was able to turn a blind eye to the use of programs such as BitTorrent. I understand that you're being threatened with legal action but I think it would be best to maintaiin the anonymity of students using your service much like Charter and Time Warner maintain for their paying customers. The only reason the RIAA and MPAA target ResNet and campus services like ResNet is because you buckle under the threat of legal action. This leads us to believe that if we are ever busted for uploading a movie or in any way sharing something that we will be thrown to the wolves and have our internet revoked. This is not a good policy considering we can do all the downloading we want and not have to worry about being caught. It also makes a lot of us feel as though all the activity we are involved in is monitored somehow, and that invasion of privacy is just not a good feeling. If there were some way you could protect students, or maintain some sort of front for us, I'm sure we'd be more appreciative. Buckling to groups that use fear tactics against government organizations and college students is no way to get us to like your service. Other companies that offer similar services to their customers have no problem with this concept, neither should you. Also I had to go a whole weekend without internet because your DHCP server *crashed* and wouldn't issue me a good IP address. You sent a technician out here that I knew more about computers than who then proceeded to look at me and say "It doesn't work". As genius as this moment was and as glad as I was to be paying for your service you could easily have known that your DHCP server was acting up and not have wasted my time sending anyone out. Other than those two things though I'd like to remark that service has been outstanding, my connection speeds have always been great, and only one intrerruption in service that was remarkable is a great achievement. So keep up the good work.
  • I had to clear everything out of my computer, pictures, music, personal files due to a virus i got from ResNet. I appreciate yall losing all my personal documents and irreplaceable pictures. (sarcastically) I will admit though the help desk did some good in getting the plain windows version back- minus my stuff.
  • I wish we had wireless in all the dorms because all the girls on my hall (including me) had massive virus problems because we plugged directly into resnet. At home, I never got viruses, but as soon as I got here, I had to get a whole new harddrive because mine was so damaged. Wireless would make it a lot easier.
  • ResNet is probably one of the best reasons to live on campus - it's fast, convenient, reasonably priced, and there are people to help you anytime you need it. Also, I like that IT has been working hard at installing wireless networks on campus. I see a lot of people using that, and I know that appreciate it.
  • I think they do a good job providing us with internet use.
  • The Windows computers in the Sullivan lab cannot get to www.gmail.com, but the Macs do, and the Windows computers in other labs do.
  • I would like the servers not to crash all the time.
  • every once in awhile the internet connection would go down or would become very laggy, normally this didnt last for long though.
  • ResNet has been pretty effective. However,there have been instances where a technician has come to fix my computer and did not what they were doing. I am no where near being a computer genius, but in some cases I troubleshooted my own problems better than they did.
  • I've never had to use resnet myself, but my suitemate has. I was around when the gentleman came to assist her. He was very knowledgable, polite, and did a good job taking care of her computer. I think what resnet does is great, thanks, and keep up the good work!
  • your techinicians need better training they dont know what they are doing and did not help me at all with my problem about 5 months ago.
  • Please send me a refund for my ResNet services from the past semester, or place $50 on my AllCampus Card! Thanks!
  • great job...thanks
  • good job most of the time internet was lost it was regained quickly
  • no thanks
  • Its dandy.
  • Very satisfied with ResNet, but my boyfriend has had to reformat his computer many times due to viruses. I do not know if that is because of what type of computer it is or what, but he has had major problems with it.
  • I would like to see an effort to get the entire campus, buildings and outside, on nomad.
  • the computing kiosks are always really slow or locked up whenever i want to use them. you need to have people check them more often. i'm not sure how they get messed up, but somehow they do.
  • ResNet is a great service. Thank you for providing it.
  • Sometimes the whole of Sullivan flickers and we all lose AIM or the internet.
  • Good response time when the network goes down.
  • Cool beans.
  • It's really fast but has a lot of spyware and viruses floating around in it.
  • It would be nice to have wireless internet in our rooms, especiall at Wold Village. I have a laptop and I could not sit at the table and work on my homework. I had to be in my room in order to use the internet.
  • Honestly, I don't download illegal music files, i think its wrong. I BUY CDS! or listen to free internet radio. Please dont make the "free" music download service roll into tuition and fees. I would rather not pay for it because I can live without it.
  • Do ResNet offer the service of cleaning a PC? If so, where can you get this done and how much for the service?
  • I have been very pleased with resnet through my experiences here at NC State. I think it is great that a technitian will come out to help you if you are having computer problems. I have only needed this service once, but I was impressed with how helpful they were.
  • ok. Thanks for everything you've done, and keep up the good work.
  • Except for periodic blackouts, the service was very good. Thanks!
  • I love it and I don't want to move off campus because it is so nice to have the majorly high speed.
  • In the very few chances I had to play any online games, I would more than often get poor server response times (around 800-900ms) around midnight most nights.
  • like the fast internet, will miss it off campus next year
  • ResNet has been great. Very fast.
  • I think ResNet is great. It has the occasional network problem, but it is fast, powerful, and easy to use.
  • I DID NOT KNOW ABOUT THE FREE MUSIC SERVICE TO ALL RES NET USERS!!!!!!!!! I really wish that I had known that.
  • Its a good service. very helpful
  • Thank you for the unlimited bandwidth. While I did not download 100000000000000 songs like some of my friends, it is nice to not have dial up like at home, and be able to load a webpage instantly.
  • i like how fast the internet is
  • resnet sucks down all the time slow
  • It gets irratating when the internet stops working. There have been many random occasions in which I was unable to get online. So I was unable to do some of my school work until the last minute.
  • Please continue to expand your wireless network, especially in the residence halls!
  • i still have a hard time accessing nomad sometimes, but maybe i am doing something wrong
  • Make it faster
  • I've had blocks for a few hours where the Internet wouldn't work...
  • You do a good job, and I thank you.
  • Sorry, I don't know much about computers. If something doesn't work I just tell my friend. I don't know what the problem is, how it was fixed, or anything. Sorry I'm not much help.
  • overall good service, a couple times it wasn't working and was a pretty big inconvenience
  • ResNet was awesome, good job
  • It was hard for me to get in touch with ResNet whenever I had a computer problem. My computer has been experiencing problems for most of the school year and it still is. I was hoping that a technician would come to my room and fix it but no one ever did. Work on having technicians come to students dorm rooms more for help instead of trying to fix problems over the phone or online.
  • Can you please send me the Computing Essentials 2004 CD.
  • Free stuff would be great
  • room expenses are high enough.
  • thanks guys for all your hard work
  • ResNet's pretty handy, but why is my dorm's network slower than others'? Fix that.
  • A good percentage of Resnet technicians are not qualified in the least to deal with many of the problems student computers have. I have personally had to fix over 15 computers this year after my friends had called Resnet and the technicians could not fix them. These were not hardware based problems either. They were relatively easy problems which took me less than half an hour on average to fix.
  • fdafdas
  • I do not like resnet because they cut off my internet for several days without a real explanation. Then, instead of explaining shit to me they just turned it back on. Thanks a fucking lot.
  • maybe an occassional email would help inform every1 of the service provided
  • More wireless access areas are greatly needed
  • i was upset that i had to pay for an ethernet cord when i already had to pay for the service!
  • I'm looking to work part time during the summer can i work for Ncsu Itd? please email me or call me 6074660
  • all your text boxes start with a space.. why? all of the ones for percentage should start with a default 0 in them.
  • Encourage people to install not only symantec, but all windows updates (service packs, etc) before ever plugging in their internet. Even with symantec i kept getting viruses w/o even opening IE. I had to install SP2 from cd to keep from getting the viruses. If i tried to get the updates right when i first plugged in the internet, i'd already have the viruses (quarantined every couple minutes by symantec). Just a piece of advice.
  • In the computer labs, I was rarely able to access secured websites such as print.ncsu.edu
  • Great work! Thanks!
  • no commments
  • there should be an easy and well publicized way of remote accessing computer lab computers with all of our college's applications.
  • Being able to get through to the help desk would be nice!!!!!!!!!
  • someone who works for resnet lives and my dorm and he was VERY helpful when i needed something fixed on my computer or had a question about it.
  • the resnet technicians that come to your room are very helpful
  • I'm very satisfied with it.
  • great service, keep up the good work
  • the one guy that came and fixed my computer was really personable and knowledgeable in his field!
  • Let more students know that they do not have to go to commercial companies to have their computers looked at if there is a problem.
  • Thanks ResNet.
  • An excellent service that has greatly enhanced my ability to function well academically. Also the only real reason why I have been hesitant to move off-campus.
  • The internet service was great. I don't think it went down put twice this whole year. The guy from the HELP desk tried to help me fix a problem with by virus software put was unable to.
  • more, better wireless internet
  • i have none
  • There were many problems with connectivity on ResNet this year, more than I experienced last year. I do not know the reason for these (growing pains of an expanding campus, perhaps?), but it was a great inconvenience to find that my internet service had crashed for 10 consecutive hours. It was also a minor inconvenience the multiple times my internet connection died for an hour or so while I was working on something or talking to someone.
  • I am under the opinion that any given Windows-based PC is a ticking timebomb waiting to get 0wn3d, allowing the attacker to assault networks using student/campus owned resources. I have therefore come under the opinion that ResNet should push students to use Mac OS X and Linux much more strongly. I also feel that ResNet should enforce bandwidth caps on students accussed of sharing illegal files. Their p2p networking is saturating the campus network for those of us who use it for legitamite purposes (referring mostly to those of us running servers on ResNet). And _thank_ _you_ for being the best ISP in the world! No where else (except maybe Japan) can this much bandwidth be purchased at such a low price where you're allowed to run any kind of server/client software you want! I myself run an Apache/ftp/ssh/MySQL desktop/server happily :) Also, question 36 is damning to Linux users and could be rephrased.
  • Along with the required anti-virus software, spyware protection should be distributed (bundled?) if possible, because the spyware is just as annoying and dangerous.
  • My roommate and I experienced intermittent and recurring packet loss in our dorm (Bragaw) which I documented through use of tools such as trace route. When I called ResNet about it I never got an answer as to the cause, or even an agreement that yes, we were dropping 1/3rd of our outbound packets.
  • N/A good job just improve Upload please :-)
  • For the last month in Wolf Village I had very slow internet service. It was like using dialup or worse.
  • internet would stop working occasionaly and i would have to use ipconfig to repair connection, do not know why
  • it was very helpful
  • ~
  • There were alot of problems this year with resnet service going down and not working.
  • I responded that I did not use any computer labs, but I do use the labs in Brooks Hall for the College of Design
  • other than a few outages, i rate the service as excellent, i have very few complaints. The worst was when a network switch went out before winter break and the whole dorm went dead.
  • It sounds like you guys care an awful lot. I'm glad.
  • really don't think that resnet should be a separate fee. most colleges and universities provide ethernet connections to campus residents either free of charge or included in the room rate.
  • I had quite a few problems with resnet for playing games, when I complained about this I was told the reason for my high packet loss from me to the server was due to bandwidth limiting to prevent large upload servers on p2p networks. Although I agree that something should be done about this, I find it ridiculous to think that there is no other solution than having a campus wide limit to total uploading bandwidth(This is what I was told the problem was by the person in charge of the limiting). In some of the games I was trying to play I simply was not able to because I was having 50%+ packet loss and they would kick you. I appreciate that this is probably not high on your list of concerns, however, resnet is a service for people living on campus, and as such I expect to be able to use it for things other than just school work. I was very unsatisfied by the reply I got which was basically, yes this solution sucks, but too bad, we'll try to change it in the future. This is not some little problem that can be fixed far down the road to me, there must be a better solution.
  • over allthe system works well however, sometimes during periods of high traffic the servers are so slow they may as well not be there, making it almost impossible to do homework anywhere but a lab.
  • The one time I had to call, the guy was very helpful. I appreciated it very much. He was also really nice and polite.
  • The Metcalf network needs to be upgraded, as it is a tenth of the speed of networks in dorms such as Sullivan, and there are frequent, although brief, interruptions of service in Metcalf.
  • ResNet is a great service provider, best i've ever had, I have DSL at my house and it is down half of the time and even though i know that ResNet has it's problems sometimes it works well most of the time, so i'll just say thank you.
  • The service technician that came to my room was very rude to my room mate and me. I think quality in customer service can be improved with the technicians. Thanks!
  • I have finished the survey
  • More wireless please. I couldn't get it near design school (esp. in Riddick where I was most of the time) and I couldn't get wireless near CHASS because there's a key needed to access it.
  • if you feel i've been helpful, allow me to win something.
  • I like the idea of free workshops.
  • it's great that the resnet website is promoting spy bot search and destroy. there's a new version of symantec antivirus that includes realtime scanning for malware and such. it might be worth considering shifting the site license to a version that has this since such a large percentage of problems could be traced back to adware behavior and clutter.
  • Service seems good to me, high speed Internet is a lot of fun.
  • No thanks
  • I was disappointed when I asked for help with a huge virus I had on my computer. I was simply told to run Symantec, which is the first thing I did. I did not receive any further help, and ended up working hours on my computer to get this virus off.
  • Ninja
  • Several times the internet connection was horrible. If it is known that internet work will be done then emails should be sent out so people can schedule other times to do work on the internet
  • resnet should expand its appointment times to last for longer than 1 hour. the technicians have no time to get done what needs to be done & the students have fight tooth & nail to get another appointment within a week of that happening, often times.
  • Please do a better job with viruses. My laptop received a virus the second I plugged in the ethernet cord the day I moved on campus. A Resnet Technician managed to get the free virus software installed, even though I had already purchased and installed a virus program on my laptop prior to moving in. I finally had to take my laptop to a private computer store and spent over $150 to fix it, and it's still messed up from the viruses. This does not make me happy.
  • I'm an easy going person, as long as my internet works all the time, then i'm satisfired.
  • My computer is stil not fixed
  • thank you
  • Is improving packet-loss possible?
  • ResNet = r0x0r. Ruckus = sux0r. Oh yeah. That article in the Technician about bandwidth limits? Someone please hit that author with a hammer. I run an HTTP server for the fun of it (Apache2), and having bandwidth limits would severely hinder my ability to share my creativity with friends. Which would not be cool at all. Yeah. So. Don't institute bandwidth limits. Please. I'm begging you.
  • I have no comments.
  • I would love to win
  • thank God for Resnet!
  • sftp and ssh were the services I used most.
  • You should offer semester subscriptions to these music service programs at reduced prices.
  • The wires of my phone lines seemed to be crossed with others.. It was very annoying and I never got a chance to get it worked out and instead just used my cell phone at all times.
  • More Linux awareness/support is always good.
  • whole service runs very smoothly
  • A few questions I was required to answer in order to submit, even though they didn't have an answer option that applied to those who don't have their own personal computer.
  • At the beginning of the school year, my new laptop was infected with multiple viruses, including somethign called a "demonic possession" by the student technician that came to my room. 2 different technicians couldn't help me solve my problem and I was very, very dissatisfied with the security of my computer on the ResNet service. I believe the damage is irreversible, and even at the end of the year now, I am still having problems that I cannot fix. I would prefer not to even use the NC state internet acces because of the terrible problems I've had this year and the inability to fix them. As for the question about which lab I use most often on campus, I use the Brooks Hall Lab several times a week (which was not listed as a choice.)
  • In response to #36....: I did download Symantec from the website. However, some Trojan or worm disabled it (I don't remember what the name or type was). As a result, I have downloaded AVG Antivirus Software for free from their website. Please let me know if this software is sufficient, or what should be done about it (if I can bring in my computer to the Hillsborough Building). So that I don't give away my identity and defeat the purpose of this survey, I can be reached at my alternate email- trizz919@hotmail.com thank you so much!
  • No more comments.
  • no commments
  • nah
  • ResNet is very nice most of the time. The fat pipes (especially upstream) and relatively liberal internet usage policies factored heavily in my decision to live on campus for the next semester (hahah, geek). I highly commend the fact that you don't use packet shaping/QoS, and how you currently handle subpoenas. However, the packet loss marathons which occur once or twice every month are less than amusing (usually in-campus connections, level3 is all gravy). Anyway, thank you for a job well done! =)
  • Sometimes Resnet's network seems jammed maybe twice this semester it happened, overall resnet is very well though, helped out a lot.
  • Junk mail in my webmail account is incredibly frequent.
  • If you are in charge of the XBOXs and PS2s in the wolf's den, they are pointless. Many people already have these systems and I really doubt people will pay to use them. I want the arcade machines back! We were the only university I've ever heard of with an arcade. It was so great! Do you realize how popular (and rich!) the place would be if you had a Dance Dance Revolution machine?
  • Having had dial-up when before I came to college, because of my experience with ResNet I must continue to have a high-speed Internet connection for life.
  • Keep up the good work, and the free software for us CSC majors.
  • Thanks for all the work that you do, I'm very pleased with the service and value.
  • Possibly an even more efficient virus protection program could be provided b/c I still received a few even with the most recent Symantec updates.
  • ok
  • ResNet should do better with their internet service, it is often times slow or inefficient.
  • aadfwae
  • None at this time.
  • Wish there was more wireless in the dorms.
  • You are going a great job!
  • Thank you!
  • PLEASE DO SOMETHING ABOUT SPAM EMAIL!!!! other than that good job
  • Great service!
  • i dont have any
  • Great service even though it goes down once in a while...I love it! Thanks!
  • ResNet has generally been very satisfactory; however, considering that if you live on campus you HAVE to pay for ResNet, why not just include it in the housing fee?
  • I am very satisfied with ResNet! :)
  • From listening to other students, customer service is a good service and resource for students.
  • monkey-fudge???
  • nah son
  • I'm gonna be in an apartment next year. So, peace out craigs.
  • I appreciate the enormous amount of bandwidth, and the fact that there was no bandwidth cap.
  • resnet ran well. good connection. :)
  • they should make all the resources more public and make sure everyone knows about them.
  • The arrogance and condescension from some of your emlpoyees can be quite laughable at times.
  • Consistent and quality service
  • jf;alieglawje
  • I think its great all the programs and technology we have access to, even if we don't all use it, we all have the opportunity to benefit from it. Thank you.
  • I did not have to call ResNet technicians, but it seems to me that for my friends and roomates, they were often slow to getting to the room or offering services.
  • Love yall, u spoil me with reliable high speed internet access. (Except that time on the weekend where CSC116 students were working on program 4 and there was an exam that Monday, and all those servers just went offline, which made the whole campus network to go offline!!!!!!)
  • ResNet has been a great provider, I will miss it next year not being on campus b/c I know my off campus friends tend to have problems with their service some times.
  • ResNet was fine... but it took at LEAST a month to get my ResNet working in my Wolf Village building D room! I called it in in December... it was very much after classes started (weeks) that it was finally resolved... after several ResNet visits to my room. I was told it was the building, not Resnet... but so many other people in my building had internet.
  • ResNet has good service and friendly staff
  • Need for more bandwith durring evening hours. Internet speed decreases dramaticaly from 7-12 so much as it hinders the ability to work and turn in work online.
  • The Symmantic antivirus software does not work well on my Mac after I upgraded to Tiger. Also it seems pretty useless since it sometimes find Windows viruses but doesn't do anything about it.
  • I enjoy having access to ResNet. It's better than my home connection.
  • Just need better technicians who know more about common problems during the beginning of the year--this would save a lot of good students much money and grief.
  • I feel that the IT Kiosks are not very helpful because you can do no web browsing outside of the NC State web page.
  • It rocks... and you need to nclude the labs in HARRELSON as one of the choices for lab use
  • ok
  • The technician who came to my room was very prompt and very helpful.
  • Resnet is reliable-enjoy it. Kiosk computers only work half the time! Theyre very slow and tempermental when they do!
  • resNet seemed to be pretty good overall.
  • a few times dorm wide outages occured. If this was planned can we get a warning e-mail?
  • i hate the viruses i get off of resnet. they completely messed my computer up and some girl from your department erased my norton antivirus stuff after i spent hours getting it on there
  • I don't downlaod music from 020 services, I just buy the cds
  • very satisfied with ResNet; did not use the antivirus software on the CD because it was not compatible with windows XP (my computer has both XP Pro and 2000 Pro on it)... would have been nice to know XP Pro was no good for that kind of generic software
  • My computer was affected by viruses all year. Someone from ResNet came to fix it, but it didn't work in the least. I am very unhappy with how my computer performed this year and I have never had any problems with it until I came here.
  • 3
  • Overall very good job. The two people I had come to my room were nice and helped me w/ my computer problems a lot.
  • I have a feeling I am going to miss ResNet a bunch when I'm in my apartment next year. I have began to take excellent internet connectivity for granted. I have been pleased with ResNet's performance, offered services, and technical assistance.
  • n
  • In line with the comment above, do you still need to format a k drive to create web pages from your own computer? There is nothing I can find on the web page about it. Would be interested in getting into personal web pages but the tutorial assumes you already know about k drives and how to put stuff into your www folder.
  • I installed an antivirus, and still received viruses. It got so bad that I had to send it back to IBM, where they had to give me a new hard drive. I think that you guys need to have a better fire wall or other protection against what happened to my computer. Having that virus problem made it very hard for me to use my laptop and interfered with my school work.
  • did i win free stuff?
  • yall are doing great!
  • I like the service provided by resnet keep up the good work
  • nope I'm fine
  • ok
  • I think ResNet is very efficient. When I had a virus on my computer, a technician was able to come as soon as I had free space in my schedule. The technician I talked to on the phone was really helpful also, and ResNet technicians really know what they are talking about.
  • thanks - you guys do a great job.
  • Regarding campus Kiosks, I have found that many of them are inoperable when I try to use them. They seem to work for a few minutes but many times if I can get it to work at all it will stop responding. If they were more reliable, I would definately use them more often.
  • yay for resnet.. overall pretty good.. keep adding the wireless locations on campus :)
  • My internet is ALWAYS slow here. I've also gotten more viruses this year than ever, and the help desk people couldnt figure out what was wrong with it or how to fix it. I was not happy with my internet service this year.
  • The kiosk hardly ever worked!
