OIT has been reworking our tools and services and we have more to offer than ever before. You might be familiar with the standard tools provided by the university such as Microsoft Office, Zoom, and Canvas, but are you aware of these other programs that you can access for free or at a discounted rate?
BioRender is an image rendering software to create professional science figures in minutes by building your figures from thousands of pre-made icons and templates from more than 30 fields of life sciences. This software license is available to faculty, staff, and students for the discounted rate of $200.00. To sign up, submit a ticket with your name, department or unit, and speedtype for each license requested (one ticket per license.)
The Anschutz Medical Campus has procured DocuSign software for all faculty, staff, and researchers.
