New IT Web site; The
one-stop for technology needs
Planning to connect your laptop to the University’s high-speed wireless
network? Looking to update your virus protection software? Interested in reserving
one of the University’s Smart Classrooms? If your question is technology
related, visit the new Information Technology Web site at www.it.northwestern.edu/.
In partnership with University Relations Web Communications, IT launched its
new site this summer, offering the University community a professional and unified
IT design, customer-oriented organization of technology support and services,
a centralized location for technology support contacts under “NUIT Help”,
up-to-date news and events, and easier navigation for smart, productive browsing.
The site features a broad range of information that is geared toward helping
the Northwestern community be more productive with their use of technology. From
using software and telephone services to establishing a network connection and
following the popular “5 Simple Steps” for computer security, the
IT site offers a one-stop-shop for University technology needs. New sections,
such as the mobile phone page that includes information on the next-generation
of “smartphones,” offer the University community advice on the best
use of technology at Northwestern.
In addition to an improved, more professional look and feel, the new site also
showcases structural improvements. It combines information from the many branches
of IT into one site, offering a more user-friendly experience.
