UB faculty are invited to attend a Technology Town Hall on
Wednesday, November 29, 2017 at 3 p.m. in Diefendorf 2.
Faculty are invited to share their opinions on technology at the
university and learn about new tools and services being introduced
to aid teaching and research.
UBIT offers on-site and over-the-phone response to classroom
technical problems and operational questions, with a response time
of ten minutes or less. Personal consultations with an IT Customer
Service professional are also available by advance appointment.
In Spring 2016, students at Georgia Tech didn’t realize
that the teaching assistant answering their email inquiries was
powered by artificial intelligence. What could this mean for
research universities like UB and beyond?
Path Finder is a web-based interface created to help UB students
select general education courses. This new system will track
student transcripts and allow academic advisors to track
transferred credits and courses that the student must take before
Do you work with a student organization in need of classroom
tech, but on a tight budget? Good news…classroom technology
fees have been waived for student clubs on a trial basis for the
rest of Spring 2015 semester.
Classroom recording has come a long way from viewing VHS tapes
of recorded lectures. UB’s solution for lecture recording and
playback, an application called Echo360, provides more options and
a richer experience than was possible before.
Trying last year's classroom combination code? Not so fast! For
security purposes and also to accommodate new technology,
combinations in all centrally scheduled technology classrooms were
updated for the Fall 2014 semester.
Starting the Fall 2014 semester, faculty and students in certain
UB classrooms will notice the additions of Apple TV media streaming
devices. But this doesn’t mean it’s time to catch up on
your NetFlix: they’re part of a teaching technology pilot
project which allows some instructors to live stream course
materials to classroom video displays over Wi-Fi.
