CSI-IT – A New Tool For A New World
General description of the project
Most institutions of higher learning are providing IT services, training, and distance education remotely. At CSI, what makes us stand out is our all-in-one approach! We were able to take our creativity and out-of-the-box thinking to keep the campus functioning while staying within severe budget constraints. Consider us a multi-functional tool with all the attachments that you cannot live without! Attend this presentation and learn about our approach to offering IT services to accommodate faculty, staff, and students.
CSI – IT utilized the available technology on campus, including VPN access, remote desktop support, virtual labs, virtual training, Learning Management System (LMS), and much more, to help the College community shift almost overnight to a remote environment.
Explain project results
Seemingly overnight, we were able to transform the College community into a remote environment. The Administration, Faculty, Staff, and students were given the resources and support needed to work, teach, and learn remotely.
Why it should be considered best practice?
The landscape of higher education is changing. Covid-19 has pushed many higher education institutions to discover innovative and cost-effective methods to support student learning. The collaboration between IT Services and the College community was pivotal for the operations of the College.
