The IT Service Catalogue project team has made further releases to the catalogue to improve and develop the way in which it presents information.
UIS provides the University’s Board of Examinations with a bespoke desktop solution for enabling students with additional needs to sit their exams using a computer instead of handwriting their answers. The system has just been upgraded for the forthcoming 2016 examinations period.
Towards the end of last year, UIS launched its pilot ‘Bright Ideas’ project, through which it aims to explore how technology can be used to encourage collaboration. A campaign aimed at the university's 900-strong IT community appealed for IT-related ideas that could improve the learning and working environment for everyone at the university.
Information Services’ Managed Web Service (MWS) has long provided a convenient way for the university’s webmasters to host their own websites. The service has just undergone a year-long redevelopment project, and now provides a more modern, delegated, self-service control panel that can be used without having to interact directly with UIS, as well as faster highly-available servers.
UIS and the Unified Administrative Service (UAS) are working in collaboration to further develop and deploy the IT Service Catalogue, which provides a directory of information services available throughout the University.
The latest upgrade to the University's WiFi service in the city has improved the robustness of the service in the Market Place, and increased coverage to include Petty Cury.
The Bright Ideas pilot is drawing to a close, with only this week left to have your say.
