AccessPoint 'test drive' for faculty and staff
Faculty and staff have probably heard about the AccessPoint portal system coming to the ASU computing environment.  AccessPoint provides the potential for more effective communication across campus.  To help familiarize everyone with AccessPoint's capabilities and advantages, Information and Technology Services has organized a series of "technology test drives" during the week of Aug. 1-5.  AccessPoint can be customized to the user's specific needs and interests.  It will facilitate communications among groups (such as a department) or committee.  If it sounds too technical, relax...anyone with basic computer skills can navigate AccessPoint. To reserve a space, click here and select a date and time to attend. Sessions are three hours long.
