ITS Completes Upgrades Over Break
The ITS staff used the winter break for various upgrade projects across campus.
Most of the projects were focused on classroom and public lab improvements. Seven classrooms were upgraded with new projectors and AV control systems, with plans to complete the remaining 60 projector/controller upgrades during the spring and summer breaks.
The operating systems used by more than 600 public lab and classroom systems were updated as well, and preventative maintenance was completed in all classrooms.
Several campus-wide applications were also upgraded to achieve greater efficiencies, including the disk infrastructure used on many applications systems and the classroom/space management system. Blackboard was also updated to include the creation of new user documentation. New financial aid and enrollment management system modules were installed for testing.
ITS partnered with Physical Plant on the installation of 30 white boards in Violette Hall. The workstation and network teams also assisted with various office moves, helping to complete the moves of the University Press and 16th Century Journal.
