When the University of Michigan moved to remote operations in March, faculty asked the CIO for a way to emulate the in-person process for “office hours” (during which students line up for one-on-one meetings). Eric Boyd, U-M’s Director of Networks, and his team created a web application called Remote Office Hours Queue to “queue up’” students. The app allows professors and TAs to share queues (or a large queue as a team), if necessary, cutting the wait time for students. This pattern is used for many other services, including academic advising. This session also features the source code so you can apply it to your campus. View the recording.

The evolving nature of digital humanities is creating an expanding need for big data, fast networks and high performance computing systems to support the access and visualization requirements. These projects require new collaboration among technologists, scholars, librarians and others. This presentation focuses on two projects that exemplify these collaborations and the significant IT contributions needed in supporting 21st Century humanities research and teaching.
Speakers: Dennis Cromwell, Executive Director, Media Preservation and Digitalization Initiative at Indiana University; Tassie Gniady, Manager, Cyberinfrastructure for Digital Humanities and Creative Activities at Indiana University; and Todd Swanson, Digital Imaging Manager at J. Paul Getty Trust. View the recording.
Wi-Fi access has become critical for universities all over the world. Many research and education organizations have turned to eduroam – the global roaming WiFi service – to help students, faculty, staff, and visitors participate in online learning, research, working, and socializing.
This special edition of IAM Online provides a look at how three organizations have leveraged eduroam to meet these new and emerging needs.

Federated access to scholarly content and services for campus users is more important than ever. Campus stakeholders have vested interested in seeing this done well, but often use different language and focus on different aspects of the technology. This webinar highlights how different groups on campus are approaching support for users and how the scholarly communications industry is using federated technology like SeamlessAccess and GetFTR to enable access.

The Internet2 community operates a vast and critical infrastructure, and we have a role in ensuring its health. Over the coming weeks, Internet2 is ramping up its efforts to support the community’s adoption of MANRS.
Kevin Meynell from the Internet Society discusses how the MANRS initiative addresses problems like IP prefix hijacking, route leaks, IP spoofing, and more. View the recording
Early in his career as a network engineer, while interviewing at a large networking company, the interview team lead told Dan, “You have an impressive-looking resume. But we don’t really care about that.” He pointed at a whiteboard. “Tell us exactly how a packet is built, travels across a network, and arrives at a destination host, and don’t leave anything out.” Dan nervously stood up and started drawing and telling the story of the life of a packet. Heads nodded and he got the job, although he didn’t stay long before he decided to go back to work at Clemson. Today, any time someone asks Dan how a network works, he stands in front of a whiteboard and tells the story of the life of a packet. View the recording
