(Nov. 5, 2010)--The UTSA Office of Information Technology has launched the Bluebook website -- an easy-to-use resource with a wide range of information about UTSA courses, departments and faculty.
Students, parents and the general public have access to data including course information, syllabi, end-of-semester course evaluation results, faculty vitae, cost of attendance, required textbooks, work-study opportunities and more.
The new website is UTSA's response to Texas House Bill 2504, which mandates that all public universities make certain data publicly available.
"Bluebook will be invaluable resource to our students, particularly at registration time," said John Frederick, UTSA provost and vice president for academic affairs. "Students will be able to go online and on one website look up the course syllabus and the faculty member's vita, among other information. This resource will allow them to make informed decisions when they choose their classes."
"Bluebook is our one-stop public website for a variety of UTSA topics," said Ken Pierce, UTSA vice provost for information technology and chief information officer. "The information that is available on the site will be useful for students, parents, faculty, staff and the general public."
Bluebook is part of the Office of Information Technology Summer Splash initiative -- 11 projects that are having a positive impact on UTSA information technology.
A revolution in cloud computing is underway, and Ravi Sandhu believes it will be much bigger than the PC and Internet revolutions that have already changed the way we live. Sandhu, director of the UTSA Institute for Cyber Security, says UTSA is taking a leadership role in tackling three fundamental cloud technology problems: how to build and operate the cloud, how to use it profitably for diverse applications and how to keep it secure.
Sandhu, the Lutcher Brown Distinguished Chair in Cyber Security in the College of Sciences, and Ram Krishnan, assistant professor of electrical engineering in the UTSA College of Engineering, are funded by a $500,000 grant from the National Science Foundation to improve cloud security.
Did you know? Sandhu, a world-renowned cybersecurity expert, holds 30 patents, has authored more than 250 papers and been cited more than 30,000 times.
