Media and Academic Computing

Mission Statement

Over the past several years, the advancement of necessary technologies along with institutional change have affected Media & Academic Computing (M&AC) services.  M&AC has been called upon to enhance services by providing leadership and direction for technologies including:

  • Print management
  • Active Directory
  • Desktop domain infrastructure
  • Desktop and Server Virtualization
  • Updated Learning Management System (Blackboard 9)
  • Enhanced email and related services (Office 365)

During the same time we have shared in the institutional changes that challenge service levels and quality including:

  • Budget reductions
  • Retirements
  • Hiring restrictions
  • Transfers of personnel and equipment

Unfortunately, at this time M&AC does not have dedicated staff positions nor the capacity to continue to provide videographer or photographer services to the YSU community. Requests for such services to M&AC cannot be fulfilled.

Going forward, M&AC will continue to provide new and traditional services including:

  • Support for technology questions and concerns
  • Assistance with on-site and remote desktop/mobile technology needs
  • Preparation and maintenance of campus computer labs
  • Design, maintenance and support for multimedia classrooms
  • Delivery of mobile multimedia equipment
  • Design and production of graphic, illustrations, web pages, and printed materials
  • Infrastructure engineering services (e.g., print management, directories, virtualization, computing environment, desktop services, etc.)
  • Delivery of critical business systems (e.g., Blackboard 9, Office 365, Windows/Mac software)
  • Software licensing for students, faculty and staff
  • Technology hardware repair including certified warranty services for several vendors
  • Delivery of tools and services for online and distance learning
  • Instruction for and assistance with classroom technologies
  • Assistance editing and incorporating videos and photos for course materials
