We are very happy to announce that the Haslam College of Business now has our own Production Suite. Located in HBB, rooms 407-408, we are “open for business.” As you will see, our Suite includes a room set apart for video recording and a separate room for editing, production, and voice over. Along with this hardware, we have licensed the industry standard software to ensure the final product of your work with our production team is high-quality and best-in-class.
Our goal with this Production Suite is not to focus solely on putting entire courses online. While the BOSS program has, and continues, to do that, there is much more that can – and should – be done with the facilities we now have.
We won’t only be using the Production Studio for instructional purposes. We will be encouraging students to record a short, professional video resume. They may also be using it for a VolStarter campaign, or a case competition. Faculty can also use it to highlight research, forums, and other uses.
In short, our new Production Studio exists to enhance the instruction, research, and brand of the Haslam College of Business and our faculty, staff, and students. While we’ve released some great products (some of the BOSS courses), please understand we are still learning how to be a production studio, so your patience is appreciated. That being said, we’re ready for you!

Beginning this summer, TIS will coordinate a regularly scheduled on-site Macintosh expert to diagnose Mac-specific problems, answer your questions regarding your desktop, laptop, iPad, iPhone or any other Macintosh device, or just discuss what you’re trying to do and how your device can help you do it. Hardware problems will still require either VolTech or Apple Store hardware support, but other issues can be solved at the desktop without additional delay. As before TIS is on-call to help with any technological problem at any time, but this service allows you access to regularly-scheduled Mac-specific support. Look for more details and a support schedule soon.
Also beginning this summer, TIS will offer Mobile Help Desk Support to help solve your technology problems. This means that a TIS staff member will be dedicated to your area for specific periods each month to answer technology questions, help solve your technology problems, and generally ensure that your systems are working as needed. As before TIS is on-call to help with any technological problem at any time, but this service also allows you access to regularly scheduled support. Look for more details and a support schedule soon.
Finally, in conjunction with UT Recycling, TIS will now collect your Electronic-Waste (E-Waste) items and see that they are properly disposed of or recycled, beginning immediately.
E-Waste includes everyday items such as used batteries, used printer cartridges, broken mice, CD’s, and hard drives. Other larger items may include printers, computers, storage devices, media readers, and other electronic waste items. If you are unsure of how to dispose of the items, just contact TIS and we can assist you with “getting it gone.”
For pickup, disposal coordination, or questions just call TIS Reception @ 974-8790, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
