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.

Q. Where did the old InfoTech Tuesday archive go?
A. While the newsletter has moved to a new platform, with a new way of archiving and viewing archives, the old archive is still available. The easiest way to get there is to click on the Archive tab in the new InfoTech Tuesday site and follow the link near the top of the page to the old archive. Alternatively, you can get there directly by going to http://www.k-state.edu/infotech/news/tuesday/archive .
For the busy K-State student, a newly developed television program, Wildcat Watch, will feature a weekly calendar, brief interviews, and updates on subjects of interest to students. Wildcat Watch, produced by the Educational Communications Center and a student crew, will debut on K-State TV (cable channel 8) at 1 p.m., 3 p.m., and 11 p.m. Monday, Sept. 8, and will repeat throughout the week (see www.k-state.tv for replay information). View a new Wildcat Watch each Monday and also watch segments online.
“This new program is dedicated to informing students about upcoming events on campus,” said Tyler Traxson, co-executive producer. “In addition, Wildcat Watch will focus on events and people of the university community.”
