Room Booker System Roadshow new [Places] 10:00 - 11:30 Faculty of Education, 184 Hills Road, 1S3
  • The Faculty of Education has recently adopted the University’s new room booking system Booker, and would like to invite you to a briefing session to learn more about the system.
  • Booker is a free, user-friendly, quick and robust cloud-based service that provides an effective means of managing rooms within any Department and also promotes the sharing of available room space. It’s part of the Education Space project being run by Professor Graham Virgo to improve the space utilisation within the University and to provide a uniform approach to the booking of rooms, both within departments and across University sites.
  • The Faculty of Education is hosting a briefing session during which the Booker team will provide a short demonstration of the system and its capabilities and you’ll be able to put questions both to the team and to current users of the system.
  • Refreshments will be provided at 10:00. The presentation will begin at 10:30.
Wed 24
TechLink Community Seminar: IT Forum - Accessibility regulations, Microsoft Mimecast and more [Places] 14:15 - 16:00 University Information Services, Roger Needham Building, Norwich Auditorium

Accessibility and what it means for COs and institutions

  • The UIS Accessibility Working Group will update on work going on to ensure that we provide accessible services. They will highlight plans for institutions that will need to adapt to review the accessibility of their own websites and services and to write accessibility statements. They'll be a demo of screen reading technology working with inaccessible materials, and the difference that a few relatively simple updates can make to improve the experience for all.
  • Introduction to IT Portfolios. Mark Rowland will give a brief overview of what the Portfolios are and who in the University is responsible for each element.
  • Rich Wareham from UIS DevOps will share his experience of starting a new technology community as part of UIS aims to encourage Communities of Practice
  • Phoenix Software (our Microsoft Office365 partners) will update on some of the shared experience across the University, including how some institutions are using Mimecast, including for GDPR compliance.
  • The recent Oxford IT Forum Conference <https://www.ictf.ox.ac.uk/event/ictf-conference-2019> was another excellent combination of talks and workshops, and vendor interaction. Brief highlights of the day will be provided, along with ideas about further expanding our collaborative IT efforts with Oxford.

This will be the final seminar of this academic year, and as usual, there will be some light refreshments to celebrate the end-of-term!
