Service roadmap

IT Services roadmaps display where we currently are and where we expect to be in the coming months and years in regards to technology at Ohio University. This Advisory Community is one of the major channels that influences the roadmap and IT's future work for the service.

Recent activity

Advisory Communities not only provide a means for participants to engage with OHIO IT, but they also provide a platform for faculty, staff, and students to influence technology decisions based on their needs and experiences. In the past several months, this Advisory Community has:

  • Gathered feedback for a surveys RFP.  More than 270 survey users provided input on their survey needs and experiences. The first part of the RFP was awarded to Qualtrics in February, and the second phase covering course evaluation technologies began in March.
  • Improved Qualtrics user experience for students. After receiving reports that students were often redirected to the vendor's site and prompted to create a new account, OIT updated the student login experience to direct them to the correct account type. This change went live in December. 
  • Benchmarked MyCap mobile app. Faculty requests for MyCap led to deeper exploration of MyCap, a mobile application for REDCap that allows research participants to record answers outside of a traditional survey. OIT is planning to offer this as a HIPPA-compliant tool in the future.
