Two-Step Login (Duo) -- just do it

Anyone with an IU account should enroll by November 2.

Two-Step Login (Duo)—everybody’s using it! Or at least they should be by now. As the November 2 deadline creeps closer, make sure that your account is enrolled.

If you’re already enrolled on your primary device, set up another device to use as a backup option. You’ll be able to log in even if you leave your primary device at home, or if it’s lost or out of battery power.

An introduction to satellite imagery

Feel like someone’s watching? Here’s why.

What is satellite imagery for, other than finding your house on Google Earth? How, and why, do Google and other companies collect that imagery? If you’ve ever wondered what satellites are looking at and what they’re doing with that information, the “CartoShop: Basics of Satellite Imagery” workshop is for you.

You’ll learn how satellite imagery is used in various fields and what can be learned from that analysis. The discussion will also cover applications for satellite imagery to monitor climate change, for intelligence operations, and for use in humanitarian efforts.

No prior knowledge or experience is required—just curiosity.

When: October 17, 2-3pm
Where: Hazelbaker Hall (Wells Library E159), IU Bloomington

Computing award for young women in Indiana

This means you, creative coders, designers, and otherwise techy teens.

Do you know a young woman interested in computing or IT? The IU Center of Excellence for Women in Technology (CEWiT) is sponsoring the Indiana Award for Aspirations in Computing, honoring high school-age women with computing-related aspirations or interests. Applicants don’t have to be adept with computing, but should wish to become so.

The award is offered in conjunction with a national award sponsored by the National Center for Women & IT (NCWIT). Any student who applies is automatically eligible for the national award too. Twenty winners of the Indiana award will receive cash prizes and scholarships to Indiana colleges (including IU).
