UITS Monitor: Moving? Wanna sell your stuff?

Coming soon: IU Login

The way you log in to IU services is getting a facelift.

This summer, IU's authentication services, including Central Authentication Service (CAS), are getting a refresh. A lot will be happening to improve the infrastructure behind the scenes, but for IU students, faculty, and staff, the main thing you need to know is that CAS branding is being retired. It will be replaced by IU Login, which will do all the same things CAS did, and it’ll look different, too. The switch will be fairly seamless to the user, but expect a new look.

That's so '90s: Overhead projectors going away at IUPUI

Document cameras replacing overhead projectors in IUPUI classrooms.

Digital document cameras are coming to IUPUI classrooms this fall, replacing the venerable overhead projector. They offer several advantages over their tried-and-true, yet outdated, predecessors. You can record lecture content for publication on Kaltura, for example, and you can also caption lecture content for accessibility purposes.

The Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) can provide advice and assistance in the development of digitized material for classroom presentation, and staff from Classroom and Conferencing Support (CCS) can meet with you to demonstrate available classroom technologies.
