Educational Technology & Media Services Updates

2 months 1 week ago

In the world of remote instruction and learning, there are many considerations to take into account when deciding on methods and tools that you might use for your specific course. One thing faculty and instructors should take into account is the Internet bandwidth capabilities of their homes and those of their students. Not all of us live in areas with access to reliable, high-speed internet.

Keeping this in mind, Information Technology (IT) has published some guidelines and recommendations for using the various tools available to UNI faculty under different bandwidth constraints. Here's also a workshop done in collaboration between the CETL and IT-ETMS called "Remote Possibilities: Considering your Students' Bandwidth".

As always, if you have questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to reach out by opening a Service Hub ticket.

Information Technology (IT) is constantly working to improve and secure the systems and services it runs. These changes take many shapes, including security updates, upgrades to functionality, and other modifications. These changes are worked on in testing systems and then deployed into production on a regular schedule. Under the circumstances of a campus closure event, IT will change its strategy to allow work to continue and progress to be made, without any changes actually being pushed into production. This may allow progress on system development to continue without introducing unnecessary risk (e.g. system outages, downtime, etc) into an already tense environment where a large number of employees are working from home.

IT continually works with campus leadership to identify those systems and services most crucial to maintaining the University's academic mission and during a campus closure event, our resources will be spent "keeping the lights on" for those systems.

If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please don't hesitate to open an IT request by visiting Service Hub at servicehub.uni.edu and using the Get IT Help request form.
