A story about the end of Adobe Flash Player support was the top-viewed Node 4 article in 2020

UIT published 106 Node 4 articles in 2020. Of these, 34 appeared as feature articles or announcements in the University of Utah’s online newsletter This Week @theU, with additional contributions to Researcher’s Corner, Campus Connect, and the U’s COVID-19 central website.

Without the collaboration of our colleagues, UIT Strategic Communication wouldnt be able to publicize IT initiatives affecting the U community or amplify the top-notch work taking place within the organization. We extend our gratitude to everyone who shared their expertise, insights, and stories with us — and of course, to our information email service subscribers and readers!

Here are the top 10 most-viewed Node 4 articles this past year:

  1. Adobe Flash Player support ends on 12/31. Prepare now.

    Adobe Flash Player has had a good run. But, as they say, all good things — if you can still refer to the glitchy, outdated software as such — must come to an end.


  2. 5 IT resources to help U students get through fall semester

    As the University of Utah gears up for a hybrid fall semester of in-person and online courses, one overarching goal has been to ensure students have access to resources that will set them up for success and keep them connected to the campus community. 


  3. A university-wide Zoom agreement has been signed

    The University of Utah has signed an enterprise agreement with Zoom, a video conferencing, online meeting, chat, and collaboration tool.


  4. Gartner subscription provides no-cost access to IT research, resources

    Since its founding in 1979, Gartner Inc. has built a reputation as one of the world’s leading IT think tanks. But Gartner research — which U faculty, staff, and students may access at no cost — has academic and non-IT business applications, too.

    As a security precaution, staff, faculty, and students who are not University of Utah Health employees or Epic users will be required to change their uNID passwords.

    UIT will begin rolling out security upgrades to help prevent unauthorized access to university email accounts as a result of phishing schemes.


  7. Be a Teams player with Microsoft's collaboration hub

    When collaborating digitally, do you cobble technologies together — share a Box file here, attend an online meeting via Zoom there, perhaps chat using Skype for Business? ... If this workflow sounds familiar, it may be time to consider becoming a "Teams" player.


  8. MathWorks is now free for U community members

    The University of Utah is pleased to announce that it has signed a new five-year campus-wide software agreement that makes MathWorks MATLAB Total Academic Headcount (TAH) available to eligible students, staff, and faculty at no cost.

    Jim Turnbull had planned to start a 7,000-mile journey across the United States and Canada on his motorcycle. ... He would ride solo, although he hoped to meet a few friends along the road.

    UIT and University of Utah Health’s Information Technology Services (ITS) are pleased to announce that they have negotiated a subscription license with Udemy Inc. that provides campus and hospital staff who have an IT role with access to Udemy for Business (UFB) at no cost.
