ITS Adds Technology Training Center and Policy Page to Tech Help Center

LEXINGTON, Ky. (July 7, 2021) —​ University of Kentucky Information Technology Services (ITS) has launched two new features in the Tech Help Center with the addition of the Technology Training Center and the Polices, Recommendations, and Standards page. 

The Technology Training Center is a one-stop-shop for technology training resources. If you are looking for free training opportunities on classroom technology, cybersecurity or various other technology topics, the Technology Training Center has a list of online resources for you. This new feature showcases trainings from resources at UK and external vendors as well. 

The Policies, Recommendations, and Standards page provides an up-to-date list of UK’s current Information Technology Policies for computing assets. Policies such as the Information Security Policy, Servers and Enterprise Applications Security Standard, and Public Internet Access and Remote Access Policy (Public IP and RDP) are a few of the resources available for review. This page is essential for all students, faculty and staff to be familiar with the policies regarding technology at UK.   

To review both of these features, start by visiting techhelpcenter.uky.edu. Links to both the Technology Training Center and the Polices, Recommendations, and Standards page can be found on the homepage of the Tech Help Center under the Quick Links section of the featured content. 

The Tech Help Center is a 24/7 online resource of help articles to assist you with a wide range of technologies at UK. Finding what you need is easy, just use the search function or peruse the most-viewed and featured content sections on the homepage. 

As the state’s flagship, land-grant institution, the University of Kentucky exists to advance the Commonwealth. We do that by preparing the next generation of leaders — placing students at the heart of everything we do — and transforming the lives of Kentuckians through education, research and creative work, service and health care. We pride ourselves on being a catalyst for breakthroughs and a force for healing, a place where ingenuity unfolds. It's all made possible by our people — visionaries, disruptors and pioneers — who make up 200 academic programs, a $501 million research and development enterprise and a world-class medical center, all on one campus.   

In 2022, UK was ranked by Forbes as one of the “Best Employers for New Grads” and named a “Diversity Champion” by INSIGHT into Diversity, a testament to our commitment to advance Kentucky and create a community of belonging for everyone. While our mission looks different in many ways than it did in 1865, the vision of service to our Commonwealth and the world remains the same. We are the University for Kentucky.
