Cisco Spark brings together people and communication tools into one secure and easy-to-use app.
You can create, share, and communicate with your team regardless of where you are
located through the use of Cisco Spark. The app provides tools such as instant messaging,
audio and video calling, whiteboarding, and file sharing.
Everything you create within Cisco Spark or on the Cisco Spark Board will be stored
in the cloud and associated with a virtual room. Team members can use the Cisco Spark app
to pick up where they left off in the physical room and continue working anywhere
they have an internet connection.

Digital Measures Activity Insight is an online information management system designed
to organize and report on faculty teaching, research, and service activities while
managing critical information for accreditation, annual reviews, promotion and tenure,
and web profiles. Activity Insight eliminates the time-consuming and often tedious
task of gathering and compiling data to build reports, saving our campus time and
effort by eliminating the need to prepare users’ activity reports manually.
