As the end of the fiscal year approaches, we wanted to remind you to check with OIT before buying or renewing your software. We have several packages available that may meet your needs, for example:
Do you need new computers for your office or research lab? Don’t forget to buy from established contracts with DELL, Apple, and others instead of retail stores like Best Buy and Walmart. Learn more about buying computers on our Ordering Hardware webpage. If purchasing for personal use, check out VolTech and options for payroll deduction.
Do you need specific research software for qualitative, quantitative, or GIS analysis? We offer quite a few packages for researchers to fit your needs. Check out the available applications on our Research Software webpage.
Are you seeking professional development opportunities without the usual travel costs and time away? Learn online at your own pace, from the comfort of your home or office. Check out LinkedIn Learning courses on a wide range of topics, including technology, creativity, and business. LinkedIn Learning is available at no additional cost to faculty, staff, and students.
Use OneDrive to store and share your files with others instead of personal services. Learn more at oit.utk.edu/storage
Zoom Pro licenses are available to all faculty and enrolled students. Staff members can get a Zoom Pro license by contacting the OIT HelpDesk.
Microsoft 365 is available to all faculty, staff, and students. In addition to online apps like Word, Excel, and Powerpoint, you can use Microsoft Teams to chat, video conference, and share documents. Learn more about Microsoft 365.
Microsoft Teams is an app to help you collaborate, communicate, and share files in a single area with a select group of people. You can manage access for the entire team and create channels or groups to allow sub-sets of employees to work and communicate on different topics. Learn more about Microsoft Teams.
