Teknoids Technology Competency Discussion: Question 1 - Broad Topics

Okay, so say that we as a community came up with a list of technology
skills, concepts and tools that we believe law students should be familiar
with (if not proficient in) by the time they leave law school. Let's
start with brainstorming a list of broad topics which they would fall
into. Such as "word processing" or "Internet Use".

*What would you want to see in that list? *

Let's take a week to submit topics and then next Friday I'll use my mad
librarian skillz and try to organize them into a list.

RE: Technology Competency Course/ requirement for students

We totally agree that a tech competency course is becoming more and more needed. In the interim, we've developed a series of Legal Tech Talks. Each Talk is at noon, we have pizza. Last year was our first year doing these and they are voluntary. We are not sure yet how well attended they will be but we wanted to offer something.

KU Law on Teknoids?

I would like to contact someone in KU School of Law's IT department. Is anyone from there on the list and if not, does anyone on the list have a name I can reach out to?
Thanks,
Cyndi

Public Access Computers

Hello All,

I was asked a few weeks back to look for a solution for our library public access computers that:

1. Forced a click-through terms of use agreement
2. Timed the session and forced a restart
3. Did not require the creation of an account for the patrons

I landed on Faronics WINSelect. It seems like a powerful tool, and an additional (bonus in my mind) feature, is it requires unique codes for each session. There is some debate around the use of these codes with our librarians.

Case Management software for Clinics

I confess to being a lurker on this list, posting rarely, and taking full advantage of the collective experience found here. Now I must ask for your help.

The Clinics at the MSU College of Law are embarking on a replacement for our current case management tool, PracticeMaster.

TargetX at Law School?

Anyone using TargetX at their law school? It's a Salesforce CRM product. Looking for a fellow traveler.

Best to all,

Anonymous Grading

We are investigating a better way to manage the submission of anonymous
grades between professors and our student services department. Has anyone
had to create a system or integrate with an existing system to accomplish
this?
