Item 2: Make at least three (3) recommendations to improve the ETC services based on your
needs as a teacher and on the available educational technologies. Give clear description
of each recommendation.

Recommendations for improvement:
1. Recommendation no. 1
To keep a continuous update and innovations with the equipment and materials.
As I have noticed, the enhancement of the technology is quite tedious and outdated. Some of
the films are not highly upgraded. The quality of some audio-visual materials are old and
obscure. Some are not good for reference and source of information due to its old copyright. It
must connect with the centers objective which is to provide a wide variety of state-of-the-art
instructional materials, equipment and services.
2. Recommendation no. 2
To upgrade the tools and materials used in Video Documentation
During the documentation in some of the schools events such as Intramurals and University
Week, the quality of the video production and motion of the cinematography is not so
competent. It should jive into the standards of the film production industry to promote effective
and high-end digital presentation of visual materials and substance.
3. Recommendation no. 3
To improve and renovate the AVR 2
Recently, the AVR 2 was improved and renovated; however, for me as a keen observer, the
two AVRs should parallel in terms of the materials, atmosphere and facilities. The AVR 2
should look like the AVR 1. The name itself explicitly suggests it. There must be a change
specifically the chairs, the mini-stage, sloped surface and the lights. Honestly, the AVR 2
looks like a typical room with ventilation and an interactive projector. For, it would be
beneficial if the two AVRs are alike with instructional materials and facilities to accommodate
well the services and needs of the students and teachers.
Will you allow your teacher to make these recommendations known to the AV Librarian for possible
program development?
