New offerings from the Engagement and Support Team
Technology Assistant Program (TAP)
This program is designed to pair ITS student workers with Colgate faculty who need technical assistance with short- or long-term projects. The demands of Colgate faculty are many, and often the use of technology can be a delay and a frustration. It is our hope that with TAP, we can provide dedicated ITS student workers to alleviate the technical stresses faculty may face. More information on TAP can be found here: colgate.edu/offices-and-services/information-technology/getting-help/technology-assistant-program.
The Offices of the President and the Provost and Dean of the Faculty sponsored a campus subscription to Flipster, which will provide all members of the university community with free mobile digital access to several important national magazines and journals. Instructions can be found here: colgate.edu/offices-and-services/information-technology/workplace-software/flipster.
Usage statistics from popular services
Office 365 was announced as a new service in the fall, and since then, 843 users have activated their accounts. We provided Office 365 to users who did not have access to it previously, and this has increased users’ productivity by enabling them to use the mobile apps while they are on the go.
Adobe Creative Cloud
Under our previous Adobe license, we were limited to 300 installations of Creative Cloud across campus. With 311 licenses used already, an unlimited campus license leaves us free to support any member of the faculty who would like to use the Adobe products. This is in addition to all the labs and classrooms that now receive the suite, nearly doubling its availability on campus.
