We are having a Jam Session on Monday, November 21st starting at noon in Earth & Environmental and Psychology Building room 2013. All faculty and staff are invited. The Jam Session will be about one hour in length. If you are unable to stay for the entire hour, drop by and listen for a few minutes. A light lunch will be provided or you can bring your own. Scheduled speaker for the November 21st session is: Stephen Gasior, Ph.D. Instructor in the Biological Science Department “I and collaborators are developing virtual learning tools in chemistry and biology for use in both virtual courses and in standard lecture courses. This talk with give an overview of the technology, show the specific assignments, and how it can be used in courses. We are looking for faculty to try these out in their courses and for education researchers to analyze their effectiveness with an eye to apply for grant funding. The new aspect of this effort compared to anything coming before is the scale at which these can be deployed and minimizes the technological needs for the course instructor.” Plan on attending – there may be an opportunity for you to become involved in the development of new learning tools! Direct any questions to Carol Mitton at cmitton@uno.edu or 280-5546.

The University of New Orleans Department of Computer Science and the Greater New Orleans Center for Information Assurance (GNOCIA) recently received two task orders from the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center Atlantic (SSC Atlantic) totaling $684,925. The orders are to study Cloud Computing as an Environment ($207,178) and Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) as a Service ($477,747). The work is being conducted in association with a local business partner, Geocent, and continues the university’s support of the shared services center in the UNO Research and Technology Park. The objective of the Cloud Computing project is to setup and configure a working cloud infrastructure. The setup of the cloud infrastructure is intended to support the research of a service delivery model and demonstrate the capabilities of moving programs into a cloud environment. Once the cloud computing project has been demonstrated the government will transition to a production environment where clients using the share-services facility can access their software programs from anywhere in a secure, cloud computing environment. The goal of the Service Oriented Architecture project is to design a Platform as a Service (PaaS) which can provide remote clients with a complete IT infrastructure as a set of services which are capable of running their applications over the Internet. Service Oriented Architecture will enable hosting of clients’ applications without requiring the client to change the ownership of their data or their business processes. This model will yield significant cost savings on hardware and software for the client. UNO Vice Chancellor for Research Dr. Scott Whittenburg is the project director. Investigators are Drs. Roussev, Tu, Richard III and Abdelguerfi.
