In mid-September a new policy will be implemented regarding the management of Faculty and Staff “Deleted Items” folders. Student “Deleted Items” folders are currently automatically emptied of items with a date older than 30 days. This policy will now apply to Faculty and Staff accounts as well. Messages will be retrievable using the “Recover Deleted Items” function in Outlook for two weeks after they have been removed. Announcement of this change will be made to campus in early September.
iCIT will host a Technology Open House (TOH) on Thursday, August 31 from 1-4pm in the Andersen Lab/LTC area. The theme of the Open House is “See Something New”, and will showcase the latest campus technology tools, systems, and practices. Many iCIT staff members will participate, providing their expert knowledge in the many services provided to the UWW campus. All faculty and staff are invited to meet with our staff, check out new and changing technology, and receive personalized help. Refreshments will be served and door prizes will be given away to guests.
Elena Pokot announced that Brett Cook will take on the responsibilities of the Unified Desktop Management project. He will be responsible for the overall process development and for Windows desktop management. Mike Farrey will work with Brett to implement the same approach for the Mac platform.
After Jim Mills left our organization, Brett Cook graciously agreed to accept the A/V responsibilities on a temporary basis. Right now we do not have plans to refill Jim’s position. Brett will retain the overall planning and coordination responsibilities for instructional A/V equipment, and the Desktop team will accept the day-to-day maintenance and support responsibilities as Brett transitions into his new responsibilities in desktop management. It is our intent that the Distance Education Coordinator (when hired) will assume the planning and coordination responsibilities for A/V technology in the classrooms.
