April 2019 OET Newsletter
OET Site Launch
We have launched our new OET website! The site features technology resources, including videos and technical support documents, a new employee IT checklist, and data security information. We have designed these resources to assist you inside and outside the office and the classroom. Please take a moment to visit. We welcome your feedback on our new site.
OET Technical Support Form
On our new website, you will find our revised technical support request form. Anyone who needs service will need to complete this form. You can access the form at https://www.oet.udel.edu/form or click the OET support request icon on our home page.
Microsoft Visio and Power BI Licenses Available
We have purchased a limited number of prorated Microsoft Visio licenses, good from May 1 through November 30, 2019. After November 30, licenses are renewable annually. With Visio, you can create flowcharts, timelines, and diagrams. You can learn more about Visio, which integrates with Office 365 available from UDeploy, on Microsoft’s Visio Training site.
Also available are Power BI licenses. Like Visio, Power BI integrates with Office 365, and licenses are available through November 2019. Power BI is business analytics software that allows you to analyze data visually. If you would like to purchase a Visio or PowerBI license for $14, contact OET.
OneCampus Offers Portal to UD Sites
Are you constantly bookmarking UD sites in your browser, so that you can return to them? If so, OneCampus may help. OneCampus is a web portal for faculty, staff and students that lists UD sites such as UDSIS for Staff, ConnectingU, and Google Mail. If you set OneCampus as your homepage in your browser, you will not need to bookmark UD sites again.
Customize Your UD Directory Listing
Faculty and staff may customize information in their UD directory listing. There, you can list an alternative email address, publish your UD identification-card photo, add a personal web page, and list office hours. To update your information, log into the directory settings page.
New Arc Academy and Week of Code
Are you looking for engaging camps for middle school students this summer? Then consider the New Arc Academy and the Week of Code. From July 15-19, the Week of Code offers 5th-8th grade students a deep dive into Processing programming, as they create Android apps. The New Arc Academy, July 22-August 2, is for 4th-7th grade students. This year, the camp’s focus is on forensic science! Campers also will program in Scratch and program Lego robotics.
Everyone Can Code
On Monday, April 29, 8:00 a.m. to 12:15 p.m., students can stop by 115 Gore Hall to participate in a fun and quick coding game. Only have 15 minutes? No problem! Code touches every facet of modern life and is a critical literacy for everyone. No prior coding experience is needed. Using iPads, students will work to complete an interactive coding game. In addition, there will be a chance to win an iPad Pro. If you have questions, email email@example.com.
