Web Communications and Information Technology are partners. We work to provide the resources and tools your college, department, or division needs. Here is an outline of some of our services:
iTunes U is a free service for higher education from Apple that provides a means for managing, delivering, and accessing university-related content to all interested individuals within a public and private domain.
OU on iTunes U provides OU college and departmental faculty and staff the ability to upload and distribute multimedia content through mobile, online, and offline environments. For students and visitors, OU on iTunes U opens up a world of possibilities to access content on a wide variety of subjects including course lectures, presentations, university news & updates, department or program information, training sessions, and guided tours.
Portfolio.ou.edu gives you 1GB of storage space to host, store, and share vital documents and create a personal web page. We recommend that you create all new personal web pages using Portfolio instead of students.ou.edu or faculty-staff.ou.edu because of Portfolio’s space, flexibility, and ease of use.
ZenDesk is a comprehensive, easily searchable online knowledge base. For those looking to trouble shoot on their own, ZenDesk is a great resource. Can’t find what you’re looking for or don’t want to try and fix an issue on your own? OU IT is available 24/7 via (405) 325-HELP.
OU4YOU facilitates mobile interaction with OU services, including campus weather and news, maps, Desire2Learn, HIRESooner, and much more.
invisibleBracelet.org (iB) is an Oklahoma-based, HIPAA-compliant service that allows its members to share vital health information with participating Emergency Medical Service (EMS) providers during emergencies. Responding medics within our service can access your information. If medical transport is necessary, text, email or phone messages will be delivered to your In Case of Emergency (ICE) contacts.
Did you know that October is National Cyber Security Awareness month? OU IT offers Symantec AntiVirus FREE to all OU students, faculty, and staff. Please call us with any questions about security, we are here to help!
Share your content with the Alumni office, Development, Recruitment Services, and Web Communications. We created an online form to simplify the process!
This is a great tool to measure your social media influence. We use it to measure the UofOklahoma accounts, and we’d be happy to help you do the same.
Accessibility and accuracy are top requirements. Basic elements also include the global header, footer, and OU logo use. Here is a checklist with more details.
The beta version of the new OU Norman campus map uses Google Maps. New features include faster loading, a larger viewing area, a more robust search and most importantly, a great platform for future development. The content for map data is maintained using the content management system, CQ5.3 from Day Software. Content currently includes a full building list, accessibility information, helpful locations, and now campus parking.
It’s still in beta, but we’re making progress based on your feedback. We have more than 30 calendars in the system, and we’re adding more on a regular basis. You can submit an event, share events, and promote events. Read more about the calendar here.
Our content management system now supports more than 100 campus sites. We’re working to provide better technical support for sites as we move forward. Expect more updates soon.
We’re rolling out our pilot blogs in the next few weeks. Departmental and college blogs should be available in about a month. We have two templates to start, and we’ll go from there. Stay tuned.
