Have you ever struggled to get wireless service on an OSU football Saturday? OCIO estimates that the call processing and data capacity of the existing cellular networks servicing the OSU Columbus campus will be exhausted within the next two years. So what does that mean? If left unaddressed, cellular users on campus will encounter “game day” types of problems every day.
The fight for young voters in Ohio earns The Ohio State University a crucial stop on any campaign tour. One need only look at this snapshot of a sea of cell phones during a recent visit from President Barack Obama to see that a presidential candidate’s campaign team relies heavily on technology. High profile visits to the university such as those by presidents and presidential candidates look to the OCIO for equipment, networking and information technology expertise while on campus.
In collaboration with Ohio State’s website team and University Libraries, OCIO recently embarked on an effort to revamp the OSU iTunes site. The site, which is accessible from itunes.osu.edu or through Apple iTunes, is a collection of free educational content that is available within the iTunes Store. The digital media content can be viewed on a computer or an iDevice.
The OCIO is pleased to provide OSU faculty and staff with membership access to the Sloan Consortium (Sloan-C). This non-profit foundation is dedicated to furthering efforts of educators to integrate online education into the traditional higher education experience. Membership in the Sloan Consortium includes valuable resources to help increase effectiveness in online teaching and learning. Members can also take advantage of discounted pricing on conferences and workshops, free webinars, discussion groups, and peer networking.
The OCIO's Learning Technology eLearning Professional Development Grant application period is open now through July 23. The grant, up to $2,000 (1:1 matching), supports individual, group, or departmental professional growth.
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.
