When you have asked the "folks on campus who do classrooms" to buy the =
right equipment, what types of responses did they give to justify their =
reluctance or refusal? What types of arguments have you used to counter =
these responses, and to what do you attribute their reluctance? Our =
Information Technology folks are responsible for classroom equipment, =
and they have often seemed less than happy to get outside input about =
their decisions in this regard.

we buy em'

Deal is, in this global, hot-wired world, it makes sense to buy what's =
available, what's good, what's useful, rather than fret too much about =
the package. You want Lacomb Lucien? PAL's the only way you're gonna =
get it, at present. The biggest issue, as I see it, faces those of us =
who don't control classroom technologies. I can build whatever field of =
dreams I want in my own shop, but it's a pretty tough go convincing the =
folks on campus who "do" classrooms to buy the right stuff to show the =
materials I'm buying.
