Ohio University now offers free telephone audio-conferencing to current students and most full-time faculty and staff via Microsoft Teams. Eligible users can create online meetings in Teams that allow remote participants to dial into the audio portion of the meeting if they do not have access to the Teams app. The feature also can be used like a traditional audio conference bridge line.

To support the University’s decision to brand itself exclusively as “OHIO," OIT will retire the ohiou.edu internet domain in favor of ohio.edu on Dec. 21, 2018. From December 21, 2018 through June 30, 2019, ohiou.edu web addresses will redirect to a page that informs visitors of the name change and recommends that they replace “ohiou.edu” with “ohio.edu” in the address they were trying to reach.
As part of ongoing efforts to improve data security, Ohio University has established a new annual password change requirement for employees. Password expirations will be phased in gradually over the next several months. To minimize the impact of this change, faculty will not be required to change outdated passwords during high demand times like the start and end of a semester.
