Do the Two-Step with Kelley School of Business
Now this is something you’ve got to see
Watch this hilarious video about IU's new defense against email and online scams.
Turn Du-oh-No into Duo Done. Starting early next year, Two-Step Login will be required for all faculty and staff IU logins via the Central Authentication System (CAS). Enroll at twostep.iu.edu.
IU faculty and staff should be sure to sign up before the holidays—or be prepared to do the two-step like the professor in the video. (We're opting for the extra layer of security, so no one laughs at our dance moves!)
UITS winter break support hours
Even during winter break, this team still has your back

During closings, phone calls will route to the UITS Contact Center.
Instructors: Add MATLAB to your spring 2017 syllabi
This fancy tool will bring out the math guru in you

Do your students need help with training? Include the following on your class syllabi:

Wi-Fi problems? We're putting a stop to that
IU residence halls get a connection boost with new wireless access points
If you take a look at the UITS Twitter feed—and if you put your bifocals on and squint really hard—you may notice the scattered tweet from an IU Secure user about a sketchy connection on campus.
Well, no more!
Thanks to our diligent engineers at UITS, these tweets are becoming even more scarce with the new wireless access points (WAPs) being installed around the IU Bloomington campus residence halls.
