How campus tech spent its summer

UC Davis moved forward in various areas of technology over the summer, as a glance at the latest IET Report shows.

The report, issued by Information and Educational Technology three times a year to the general campus community, highlights work done in four major categories: campus technology, infrastructure, educational technology, and administrative computing.

Highlights in the latest report, which covers work from June through September, include new cyber-safety standards; planned improvements to the campus email system; the choice of a single brand of "clicker" or "personal response system" for use in UC Davis classrooms; free EndNote bibliographic software for home and campus use; the addition of high-definition video editing software to the Meyer Media Lab; the return of the Summer Institute for Teaching and Technology; and the disconnection of 3,500 residence hall phone lines due to low demand now that cell phones have become so common.
