Webex Provides Campus Users with Videoconferencing Capabilities

Ideal for cross-campus or remote collaboration, Cisco Webex Meetings will serve as the preferred video conferencing solution for university users beginning spring 2020. All campus users have access to an enterprise-level Webex license via desktop download or web application in Okta, which offers enhanced conferencing features compared to other free or basic software. Users can also go to visit iastate.webex.com directly to access the software or even start meetings.

Revamped ITS Team Ready to Connect with Campus

Formerly known as the Learning Spaces Team, Information Technology Services’ newly renamed Audiovisual Experience Team (AVXT) hopes to connect with Iowa State’s campus through engaging technology experiences in classrooms and beyond.

The decision to rebrand the team was made earlier this year as a way to redefine its mission and provide a fresh start moving forward. A fixture on campus in one form or another since at least 1942, the team has undergone multiple name changes as the needs of campus changed and technology became more advanced.
