Finding Technology Solutions
How do we meet business and academic needs with new technology solutions? In this IT Times, read about specific issues the campus is confronting. We are rethinking the link between technology solutions and business or academic needs, not just because the New Business Architecture (NBA) calls for the leveraging of new technologies, but because we are always finding ways that technology can improve our learning and working environment. The campus Web portal, MyUCDavis, has been an enduring exercise in facing challenges head on. As you will read, our campus certainly has a foot in the door of portal technology. Of course, our faculty and students use educational technology in ways that are as challenging as they are exciting. We also recognize the personal computing challenges you face daily with our Q&A about spam. Check out this issue's Bits and Bytes for more news.
