ITS Launches Technology Guide
Information Technology Services (ITS) recently published the University’s Technology Guide in the SU Guides App. The Technology Guide brings advice and how-to information right to any iOS or Android mobile device.
“The guide is a go-to source for a wide array of technology services and resources available to the University community,” says Sam Scozzafava, interim chief information officer and vice president for Information Technology Services. “It has numerous handy features for students, and we hope faculty and staff also download the guide for their use.”
The Technology Guide brims with information on educational technologies, student computing resources, basic security concepts and SU’s technology policies. It includes a campus map that users can browse for technology resources like public computer labs and email stations. Through the guide, users can receive messages and notifications sent from ITS and connect to ITS and other users.
While the current version focuses on the needs of new students, all members of the SU community will find useful information in the Technology Guide.
To access the Technology Guide, go to the iTunes App Store or the Google Play Store and search for “Syracuse University Guides.” Or, visit the Guidebook SU Guides page to have the download link sent to you via text message. Install the SU Guides app, and then download the Technology Guide. You can also view the guide on the web through the SU Guides mobile site. Note that the web version works best with IE and Firefox and doesn’t have the same functionality or appearance as the mobile versions.
ITS is striving to ensure the Guide meets the needs of students, faculty and staff and welcomes feedback via the “Please tell us what you think” section. Insights and comments will be considered to improve and further develop the guide.
