eDisk Working Group

  • 0

With the support of the CITC, ITS is creating an eDisk Working Group to plan for the eventual replacement of eDisk.  The existing eDisk infrastructure is quite aged and no longer supported by the manufacturer.  As well, much of the infrastructure was put in place long before many of the other tools we have available to us today, from Google Apps to Blackboard and even our current web site management suite.  Careful assessment of what needs to be provided is the first step in planning this project.  This needs assessment is slated to be complete by December 2014.
