Based on faculty and other user feedback received last term, IS&T will be reviewing the roadmap for learning management systems as a whole.
IS&T’s new Work Prioritization Team is designed to increase transparency about the workload the department takes on, both for leadership and all of IS&T.
IS&T provides two integrated platforms for course management at MIT: the Learning Modules (LMOD) system and Stellar. Which ever option you choose, both options will remain in place until further notice.
Orientation for incoming students is around the corner. The new kids on the block arrive on the weekend of August 29 and 30, and they'll sprint through a week of activities – from open houses, tours, and info sessions to picnics and mixers. Information Systems and Technology (IS&T) will host several sessions to help incoming students make the most of computing resources on campus.
To provide the MIT community with powerful, cloud-based options for productivity and collaboration, IS&T has rolled out the enterprise version of Office 365 Mobile. This platform offers Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint apps for the iPad and iPhone, Android phones and tablets, and Windows phones and tablets.
The annual IT Partners Conference will feature presentations and training sessions on a range of important topics.
