100 days Technology, media, Nintendo, and teaching. With this special edition of the IT Times, we're focusing on a common thread that weaves these divergent concepts together: instructional technology services and accomplishments at UC Davis.

If you're interested in the changing face of technology in education at UC Davis, there's a lot here to pique your interest. We hope you have as much fun reading the articles and thinking about the possibilities as we had putting this special edition together.

This issue, in contrast to our recent practice, also appears in its entirety in print. Copies are available at various locations around campus (such as the MU Information Desk, the Arbor, and IT Express). If you would like to receive a copy, email us at ietpubs@ucdavis.edu.
