Fall 2016 Changes at COB | Technology Support

Old Main Bell

What to expect in Fall 2016

Several technology changes have arrived at the same time for the College Of Business this year, bringing significant benefits for Faculty, Staff, and Students. We've brought them all together in the following overview: please follow the links that interest you for more help.

Windows 10

Windows 10 is Microsoft's new operating system, with several welcome new features, and the return of some familiar ones.

Office 365

Office 365 is Microsoft's suite of services, bringing Office to new places and connections. We think you will love it, but please be aware that scammers are already trying to send you fake links to hijack your machine. Take No Action until we contact you directly to say that the transition is ready. In particular, we will NOT be sending you a link in any email message.

Turning Point

Turning point is now a cloud utility. We have upgraded our classroom machines with the new Turning Point receivers, and the Center for Teaching, Learning and Technology has assembled resources at the link to get you up and running with it. 


SPSS and SAS are awaiting licensing for the fall

New H drive 

Please stay tuned. This change should be complete in November.
