ITS Updates

ITS has been hard at work this summer improving classrooms, updating faculty profiles, upgrading ePortfolios, and much more.

Digital Measures
ITS in collaboration with the schools have been populating a new online system that allows faculty to update their profiles and review career history: courses taught, papers authored/presented, credentials, etc.

Classroom/Lecture Halls
Technology upgrades include 10 new Smartboards classrooms. The Educational Media team installed the UB-T880W Panaboard a revolutionary multi-touch interactive whiteboard with a durable surface.  

Teaching Circles
Faculty can register now for the upcoming Fall 2012 ePortfolio Teaching Circles in NYC and PLV to learn about effective ways to incorporate ePortfolios into teaching and learning. For more details, click on the following link: Teaching Circle.
