If one does the math on the amount of time a user spends onboarding and all associated tasks, and multiplies that by one's total device population, the time wasted is a number to admire. In education, we often provide services at the cutting-edge, but when they become commodity, we are sometimes unwilling ...

You are correct, which is why I don't want eduraom associated with my campus - I have no say in what other participating universities do with that data. Let's say a eduroam participating university decides to use eduroam data in a way inconsistent with our user data privacy policy, then it's not a "you ...

I'm not exactly sure how "Proper certificates and trust chains installed locally allows no data privacy concerns." when the institution hosting eduroam can still collect data about the device, including inspection of all traffic associated with it. If VPN is used in conjunction, then the device traffic ...

I'm still of the mindset, and my security people agree, that eduroam is a fancy guest network with all of the same warnings/risks that come with that label. That's not to say that I wouldn't trust it on my own campus, as we're in control of how it operates including user data privacy. Off campus however, ...

If you are open to feedback, when picking a new platform, I would have put real-time threaded notifications in the "must have" column. It is a fundamental of email-based communications, and it shouldn't be passed off as an "anticipated difference," or require a member to change how they interact with ...

Is is possible to hide signatures when viewing posts? There are many folks with elaborate signature lines that make following discussions tedious, where one must scroll 1/2 page for a one sentence reply coupled with 12 lines of signature and a college logo. Since folks have profiles that in theory ...

I feel differently. I welcome a modern platform, but this one leaves a lot to be desired. For example, the dissertation level of some signatures mean a lot of unnecessary scrolling past information that can't be hidden. If the signature could be hidden, it would make consuming information significantly ...

For the past five years my campus has been using AzureAD as our idp/SSO for all of our applications, and that includes Canvas, BOX, Zoom, JICS, and Simplicity housing just to name a few. It's works well and is free. We've also moved our Windows systems to be AzureAD joined, and our Macs uses AzureAD ...

I would 2nd (or 3rd) the recommendation to move to APs in room, hospitality or other, and as Chuck mentions, don't forget about those hallways or other areas outside of the room. All of the residential halls on my campus are concrete with the added layer of metal mesh for the plaster coating on the ...
