    Question mark thought

    Wah...wah...wah...Where's the Software?!          

    By Dr. Elizabeth Hinkle-Turner, Director - Academic Computing Technical Services

    Summer of 2013 was an interesting one for the UNT Denton campus. As one of my colleagues put it, the place looks like a child with a box of Legos and severe ADHD had its way on the campus! Construction everywhere! And everything moved to far-flung campus corners (has anyone actually found Wells Fargo Bank yet I ask you?) and housed higgledy-piggledy (love that term!) all over the place.

    By Claudia Lynch, Benchmarks Online Editor

    The Microsoft Home Use program has been available to UNT faculty and staff members for a number of years, as has Microsoft E-Learning.

Sometimes they are temporarily unavailable, however, when the site license is in the process of being renewed. Following is an announcement that was sent out to the UNT System on November 11, 2013 by Michael DiPaolo, Associate Vice Chancellor and Chief Information Officer.

    By Jane Himmel, Associate Director, CLEAR

    If you were to utter the word Blackboard around campus a year ago, a pained facial expression or deep groan would likely have told you all you needed to know about users’ thoughts, feelings, and observations. The system had experienced multiple unplanned outages during Fall 2012, causing considerable distress among faculty and students who expected a stable, reliable platform on which to complete their course assignments, activities, and exams.

    2014 sparkle

    By Dr. Elizabeth Hinkle-Turner, Director - Academic Computing Technical Services

    In 2007 I made a New Year's resolution to start studying karate because it looked like my two sons were having so much fun in their class that I wanted to try it out! Anyone who knows me well knows that I am the type of person who does not stop before finishing a goal and - indeed - I now enjoy my "non UNT work life" as a karate instructor and all-around ninja! This year I have been a little late on making my resolutions and maybe you are late to this task as well.
