Information Technology Services
Information Technology Services will use technology to
- Protect the university's information resources
- Facilitate the dissemination of information to university constituents
- Enhance the educational experience of our students
- Expand the instructional experience of our faculty
- Provide effective and progressive tools to support the administrative functions of the university
- Improve the image of the institution to the public as well as our own constituents
We will achieve these services by the implementation, creation, and utilization of advanced technological methods while supporting and maintaining the campus IT infrastructure.
Vision: Anytime and Anywhere Learning
The ITS vision and road map for the next year or two is to enable anytime and anywhere learning.
- Information, media artifacts, and necessary software can be made available for our students anywhere on campus and beyond.
- Traveling students and deployed students can participate and view their classes when they are not able to physically attend.
- Experts from all over the world can be brought into our classes with minimal effort.
- Collaborative and project-oriented learning can be facilitated outside the classroom.
- Administrative functions will be more automated, online, and digitized.
Each of our sections is working hard to apply this vision to their individual projects. Some of these projects will include the following:
- Video conference classrooms and various lecture capture technologies
- Media server
- New portal with smartphone compatibility implementation
- Wireless phone and wi-fi availability
- Virtual Desktop Interfaces
- TILE and other joint CTL and ITS faculty development initiatives
