To kick off Tech Week on Tuesday, ITS team members presented 15-minute demos from about the several systems that IT Services supports, such as the MyCoyote Schedule Planner and Identity Finder.

On Wednesday, students were taken on a Technology Open House tour through the different parts of IT Services and saw first-hand some of the exciting new technologies brought to campus, like the Student Collaboration Center in the Pfau Library (Wedge 1st Floor). Students also interacted with a personal telepresence robot in the newly renovated faculty commons, which includes a hands-on training lab, a consultation/discussion space, two small group project rooms, and a light boar lecture recording facility.

The Microsoft Office 365 Download Party was a huge success on Thursday! Students joined in for free pizza and free Office software downloads for their laptops, tablets, and phones. In case you missed the event, students, faculty and staff can still download Office 365 anytime, anywhere. Visit the ITS Software page here to install Office 365 on your devices.

Wrapping up Tech Week on Friday, ITS Team members brought one-hour Office 365 training sessions all over campus. The training sessions included topics on Outlook, Calendar, People, OneDrive, and more Microsoft Office tools.
