IT Completes Many Projects

The Southeastern Oklahoma State University IT Department is proud to announce that we have completed many projects over the course of this past Fall semester. These projects were geared toward a more streamlined system for the students,faculty, and staff. The IT Department is comprised of many smaller departments that work together to ensure that the qualityof hardware, software, and networking solutions available to SE’s campuses is up-to-date and running smoothly.

Projects completed by the Network Operations department this past semester include: upgrading the data center, installing a new battery backup system for the data center,upgrades to the student file server as well as domain servers,and upgrades to the wireless authentication server. Network Operations also completed a collaborative project with CIDT to upgrade from Blackboard 7 to Blackboard 9.1. Also completed were changes to the wireless network thatserves the Aviation Sciences Center. The network has been running much more efficiently than with the previous system. Additionally, it is saving the university on costs as well as time as it does not require as much maintenance as the previous system.

The Information Technology Department is always looking for ways to improve the technology that is available to everyone on the SE campus, and we strive to meet or exceed the expectations for technologyon campus.Network Operations will also be implementing a new content management system (called Drupal) to the SE website which will allow changes to be made much more quickly. In addition, KSSU is now streaming LIVE online at http://u92fm.se.edu/stream and can be accessed through any browser so that you can listen to our campus radio station anywhere!
