Do you have a suggestion for OIT?


Suggestion Idea
I would like to suggest that UT obtain a campus license for Overleaf. Many of our COSC majors are now using it in senior design for collaborative writing and our Dept will be using their tools to help create assessment documents for ABET and SACS accreditation. I met with reps at the MathFest Conference in Denver this summer and it seems many prominent schools are now using it for technical (scientific) and educational document creation and collaboration needs. It is an awesome tool that students across many colleges will want to use (especially if they want to learn LaTeX in a collaborative way). (Submitted 1423 days 16 hours ago) I like it!

I would like the University to have access to Gradescope. It's a very flexible electronic grading system. Universities that have an account have shown it makes grading much more efficient and less burdensome for professors and TAs. (Submitted 1095 days 1 hours ago) I like it!

I suggest a wi fi router be placed in the greenhouses. Specifically Racheff Research Center at 2519 Fletcher Luck Lane. (Submitted 62 days 17 hours ago) I like it!

It would be great to have a forum for discussion of using different teaching technology and techniques in the classroom, where people from different disciplines could connect. Ideally, it'd be on something like Slack or Teams where you can have different channels on different themes, and where you can browse without having to officially be a part of a given team.

I would like to suggest Qwickly Attendance for use in Canvas. This is much better than the current tool: https://www.goqwickly.com/attendance/ (Submitted 329 days 18 hours ago) I like it!

I would like to suggest UT obtain subscriptions for Grammarly. If we had Grammarly available for staff and students, that would be amazing! Many of us pay for our own personal accounts that we use for these purposes because the service is so helpful. (Submitted 14 days 20 hours ago) I like it!

I would like for UT to obtain campus or departmental access to BioRender. It can be used for all kinds of science, technical, and safety presentations, posters, writings, and documentation. Many people at UT are already paying for accounts, and having campus wide access can connect us all and hopefully be more cost effective. Representatives at BioRender have discussed that they are interested in partnering with UT and even creating UT-themed templates for us to use. (Submitted 9 days 1 hours ago) I like it!
