Over 500 students, faculty and staff enjoyed academic and technical presentations, games and door prizes at the fifth annual Tulane Tech Day held on Friday, September 28. This year’s event was the biggest Tech Day ever, held across three Tulane campuses.
Big announcements from Technology Services leadership on Tech Day included the formation of a new Network Operations Center, plans to implement Voice Over IP (VoIP) technology for the Tulane campus and new 25 GB Box cloud storage accounts for Tulane faculty and staff. The myTulane upgrade to the newest version of Blackboard Learn was also announced.
