FSU IT Employee Orientation Takeaways

Friday 01/17/2020

ITS is the central information technology organization for Florida State University, but not every tech person at FSU works for ITS. That’s why we host a bi-annual FSU IT employee orientation to help inform new tech employees on all the services FSU has available. Throughout the spring 2020 presentation, there were five major themes addressed to help IT professionals stay connected at FSU. Watch the recording. 

  1. Supporting teaching and learning
    ITS offers numerous services to help support teaching and learning. Classroom support is a resource available to train and troubleshoot issues with classroom technology to help improve the teaching experience for both faculty and students. Other learning tools, such as free LinkedIn Learning accounts and Qualtrics online surveys, are available for all students, faculty and staff. 
  2. Supporting research 
    As a top 20 nationally ranked university, research is a cornerstone at FSU. That's why ITS provides the Research Computing Center to assist FSU researchers in the acquisition and maintenance of critical research computing infrastructure and software, such as high-performance computing, virtual machines and NVivo data analysis software. 
  3. Supporting the community 
    FSUSecure Wi-Fi or ResNet high-speed Internet and powerful collaboration tools such as SharePoint Online and web conferencing services allow ITS to support the FSU community campus wide and beyond.
  4. Supporting FSU departments
    Telecommunication and Order support along with supporting department workstation are just a few ways ITS can help make your tech life easier to maintain.
  5. Protecting FSU 
    Two-Factor Authentication, antivirus software and cybersecurity awareness training give the FSU community the skills and tools necessary to keep not only personal information safe but also FSU.

The next orientation will be on Tuesday, July 21, 2020, in the Pepper Institute on Aging and Public Policy Broad Auditorium.
