Announcing Box.com for DePauw (It’s like Dropbox, only it’s better)

Greetings, Faculty and Staff Colleagues.

DePauw has arranged for a campus-wide subscription to Box.com, a secure online storage and collaboration environment with unlimited quota for faculty, staff, and students.

Ultimately, Box at DePauw (box.depauw.edu) will replace the current P:, U: and I: drives for individual and shared institutional documents, and its web-based interface will enable secure access from any mobile networked device. Box also provides an App which syncs Box files with your desktop and other devices so you can access them locally and when offline.

Today we will launch the process to begin creating and distributing Box accounts for faculty and staff. This is an automated process that will take several days for the Box system to complete. While that is underway, you can find more details about the timeline and what you can expect to see during the full rollout later in this message.

Information Services will also provide ongoing updates by email and on online, and will offer face-to-face orientation sessions to demonstrate Box features and uses. In the meantime, you can learn more about DePauw’s Box at Box at DePauw.

If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to either Lynda LaRoche (llaroche@depauw.edu) or me and one of us will be back in touch quickly.
