Information Technology goes behind the scenes to introduce staff, decode campus technology

Through its new Elon IT Decoded video series, the Office of Information Technology looks to introduce staff, while educating the Elon community about services, tools and partnerships.

Ever wonder what it takes to develop and maintain enterprise software for thousands of Elon users? Ever curious about who leads those efforts?

Elon’s Office of Information Technology (IT) looks to answer those questions and offer additional insight with the launch of a new video series, Elon IT Decoded, on Feb. 19.

Information Technology launched a new video series, Elon IT Decoded, Feb. 19 on its Elon Technology Blog.
The idea for the series evolved from the desire to introduce IT staff to the Elon community, while also educating users about services, tools and partnerships. Each video features an IT staff member sharing details about themselves, defining their role within the department, and offering insight and tips about technology services, support and security.

Elon IT will introduce new episodes monthly on its Elon Technology Blog through April, then again in the fall, with monthly episodes September through November. The online series also will be promoted on social media.

The inaugural episode features Systems Administrator and Acorn Accolade recipient Cassie Lott. 

Elon’s IT department works collaboratively with the Elon community to provide technology, leadership and support on campus. As the university’s central technology provider, IT supports teaching and learning, administration and research through secure, robust computing.

The office is made up of six departments, which includes the Office of Assistant Vice President for Technology and Chief Information Officer Christopher Waters, Campus Technology Support, Enterprise Solutions, Information Security, Infrastructure, and Teaching and Learning Technologies.
