ITS Technology Tips
Providing faculty, staff & students with information about technology at Loyola and Web tools too!
Loyola Moving Email to Microsoft Exchange
A major upgrade to the University’s email system, beginning in May 2013, will bring a wealth of new features and improvements, expanding the way Loyola faculty, staff, and students communicate with one another and the outside world. The upgrade will move Loyola from GroupWise to Microsoft Exchange, a change in platforms that will position Loyola to take advantage of anytime, anywhere communication.
Microsoft Migration Project
The Microsoft Migration Project, a University-wide software upgrade bringing Windows 7 and Microsoft Office 2010 to all computers on campus, will continue through the fall acacdemic term as remaining departments are moved to the new program versions.
New Cloud Storage Service
Loyola is now offering a cloud-based file storage service to faculty, staff and students. The service, called LUC Box, provides a simple way to create, store, and share files and folders in the “cloud” (in other words, via the internet). LUC Box provides an alternative to existing personal and departmental shared drives, and can make it easier to collaborate and access documents from anywhere on any device. You can create files and folders, share them with others inside or outside Loyola, and continue to revise and review your content.
This resource has been created to provide the Loyola Community with a concentrated list of free or discounted software and hardware.
ITS Internal (for internal use)
The Change Management Request form as well as documentation and information about the Chanage Management Process and the ITS publication process.
Information about all phases of the migration project, including the August schedule of Windows 7 and Office 2010 training classes, will continue to be shared online at www.luc.edu/windows7. Questions can be directed to the ITS project team at email@example.com.
