NYU Classes: Making Open Source Work for You http://www.nyu.edu/content/nyu/en/about/news-publications/publications/connect-information-technology/2013/05/20/nyu-classes-making-open-source-work-for-you.html en-us Mon, 01 Sep 2014 19:57:23 EDT Mon, 01 Sep 2014 19:57:23 EDT 5 Orgsync Digitally Connects NYU Students and Clubs http://www.nyu.edu/content/nyu/en/about/news-publications/publications/connect-information-technology/2014/08/01/orgsync.html For a little over a year now, over 350 organizations that are part of NYU’s Center for Student Activities, Leadership and Service (CSALS) have been using Orgsync, an online tool to list calendars, schedule events, track membership, and communicate to members. Through OrgSync, students can log in and browse clubs and organizations categorically or by events. Every student has access; all they have to do is visit the OrgSync site and log in with their NYU NetID.

For NYU’s student developers, however, writing code is not always the most challenging part; it is getting access to the large amount of data that a successful app requires. NYU is working to make some data available to student developers to encourage innovation.

Some of the services that we support include NYU Classes; software licensing across campus; specialized printing; digitization; data services; lecture capture; live streaming; faculty teaching technology support.

When it comes to life at NYU’s global academic centers and campuses, a simple IT upgrade can revolutionize everything from professors’ teaching styles and students’ learning abilities, to administrative staff’s workload. That is the case with the NYU academic center in Paris, France, which will be moving to a new building with new technical capacities in the city’s Latin Quarter in summer 2014.

Community Feedback Drives Enhancements to NYU Classes http://www.nyu.edu/content/nyu/en/about/news-publications/publications/connect-information-technology/2014/06/09/were_listening.html One of the benefits of NYU Classes being built on Sakai, an open source platform, is the flexibility afforded in continually upgrading and enhancing the service. Since the University-wide launch of NYU Classes, the NYU Classes team has continued to develop the service, incorporating user feedback and deploying several enhancements over the course of the previous six months.

Rather than hunt their prey, the predator will wait for the prey to come to it. Hackers are doing something very similar to gain access to systems that might otherwise be too well protected.
