The digital media content can be viewed on a computer or an iDevice.
Effective August 1, 2012, the OCIO Site License Software (SLS) will no longer provide the McAfee VirusScan product as a download to faculty, staff or students for personal, home use.

Due to this change in our McAfee contract terms, faculty, staff and students using the SLS downloaded VirusScan application on their personally-owned computer must uninstall it by August 1, as per the agreement they accepted when downloading the software.
