Wireless Access: EDUROAM

This worldwide wireless service is comprised of a consortium of academic institutions.  The purpose is to facilitate network access among visitors between participating institutions by extending the network to allow visitors to use the login credential issued by their home institution.  This alleviates the need for visitors to obtain guest access or for hosting institutions to issue temporary guest access to visitors who have the credentials to access the eduroam network.

Clinics

The Clinical Email System has been developed to allow students to differentiate their personal and school work from their clinical course work. Utilizing this system will increase security and provide a medium for clinical communication between clients, instructors, and students. The Clinical Email System will be utilized by students throughout their participation in a UConn Law clinic for all communications regarding clinical work.

 

A range of video, web, or audio conferencing tools can be used for events and activities such as staff meetings, distance learning classes, teaching, advising, tutoring, telecommuting, cross-cultural experiences, and job interviews.  When used effectively, these tools allow presenters and/or class participants to directly interact with guest speakers, professors, or other individuals and groups. However, they may require advance planning and coordination.

Event planners are strongly encouraged to coordinate with the Law ITS staff if they are considering using a video, web, or audio conferencing tool.  A Law ITS staff member can review the benefits and risks for a particular tool, determine any necessary equipment, and conduct a test.

Here are some of the tools that have been used on the UConn Law campus.

Microsoft Lync

Microsoft Lync allows you to check presence information for your contacts as well as send Instant Messages.  Clients are available for Windows, Mac and mobile clients for Windows Phone, iPhone/iPad and Android devices.  Microsoft Lync is installed on all law school faculty and staff computers.
