Summary

The digital computer can perform many functions in the junior college, from instruction through administrative operations and community service. Planning the computer center for institution-wide service requires particular attention to feasibility, organizational structure, staffing, physical planning, and financial implications. Depending on the extent of application and use, the cost of computer services will range from a few hundred to several thousand dollars per month. The computer can be the subject of instruction; in response to the demand for programmers by the computer industry, the junior college should establish a 2-year program of computer instruction culminating in an Associate degree. The program should be geared to the employment market two or three years after its inception. A junior college can provide the first two years of preparation for many computer related areas. In these cases, transfer requirements must be considered. The computer can also be a tool of instruction in mathematics, statistics, physics, and engineering, where it operates as a rapid calculator. In other areas, student and computer interact to perform drills and exercises. The computer can aid instructors in test preparation, scoring, and bibliographic searches. It can also greatly facilitate administrative procedures, including student registration. Sharing the cost of a computer with other nearby institutions may be desirable for small colleges. (MS)
