This session will present the implementation of tablets for the purpose of replacing the currently paper based class / teacher reviews at Kwantlen Polytechnic University with a new digital platform.

The intention of this project is to reduce the amount of man-hours and paper products required to record student class review information at KPU. Currently each hand written review is scanned into our system, then run through an OCR filter to convert it into digital text, finally the data is verified before completing an entry into the system. Utilizing the tablets we reduce the steps involved to having the student log into the tablet, then accessing the review site, (, and entering their review. The resulting data is then automatically entered digitally in the current system.

Our presentation will illustrate the implementation requirements and difficulties that were overcome in order to successfully complete the integration of this new system.

The design of IT infrastructure, data centre and network architecture has had to evolve in order to become more resilient to attacks while also meeting the needs of users who want unlimited access resources from anywhere, at any time. This panel session features IT infrastructure and security professionals sharing their thoughts, successes, and ongoing challenges around the evolution of secure IT infrastructure. Questions, comments, and stories from audience members are encouraged.
