WAOL Technology Fee
The tech plan envisions the WAOL Technology fee going away. When is that going to happen? SBCTC has the ability to find the dollars to take the Tech fee to zero this year. However, the big question is how they can take it to zero in the long haul. They realize that they can't take the fee to zero for this year and then have some fee, even a minimal one, in the future. So, they are pending funding on other stuff.
They'd like to do this by Fall 08 (wow - that's coming right up!). The practical implication of this is that the fee we pay for Blackboard ($40,000), the 24/7 support, Elluminate and all other services provided by WAOL would be free (woo hoo!).
