IT News blog starts up on 10-year newsletter anniversary

By Betsy Edwards

Ongoing demand from K-Staters for an IT-only news channel – since the IT newsletter ended July 8 – has given rise to a new IT News blog that officially starts this week. On a related note, this month is the 10-year milestone of the IT news channel that premiered in December 2001 at K-State.

The new blog adheres to K-State’s blog template plus a few design additions. News will be published more frequently, sometimes daily. Readers can once again find IT topics via the easy search box on the IT News homepage  – the blog archive includes all IT articles published since August 2008, including those via K-State Today since May.

Top headlines from the past week include:

IT deadlines will continued to be publicized through K-State Today. For more IT news and happenings, check out the new IT News blog.
