As part of this year’s ongoing efforts to improve student printing and scanning services, the Office of Information Technology (OIT) has launched a mobile printing pilot program, open to anyone who wants to give this new printing method a try.
Mobile printing allows you to e-mail your print jobs to a central printing queue, from any device, for release at any campus print release station convenient to you. No printer drivers need to be installed, nor is a connection to the UCB Wireless network necessary, making this printing method highly mobile, convenient, and easy to use.

Traditional printing involves printing from a computer located in one of OIT's computing labs.
In preparation for the 2013 - 2014 Academic Year, Desire2Learn will be upgraded to Learning Environment 10.2 on Wednesday, August 14. The upgrade will make D2L unavailable for part of the day and you can learn more at the D2L Upgrade Service Alert. In contrast to the major upgrade performed on D2L in January, this upgrade does not involve changes to the look and feel or include significant changes to tool functionality. Rather, it features improvements and fixes to D2L’s usability and added functionality that will enhance instructor and student experiences.
The Office of Diversity, Equity, and Community Engagement and the Office of Information Technology (OIT) are commissioning a study of how CU-Boulder addresses accessibility requirements related to technology. Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements have been firmly established around spaces and buildings, providing a framework for campus construction to follow strict standards for accessibility in the physical world. As this transformation has not yet happened in the digital realm, this study’s goal is to lay the foundation for technology accessibility for our campus.

The following tips and tricks have been compiled to help you ensure a smooth digital signage implementation and maintenance.
