Yesterday, I hosted another group conference call for schools using or evaluating Microsoft's hosted services - Live@Edu, Office365, and Hosted Exchange.  We had a great call with plenty of good discussion among the 25 schools.  These calls originally started just for schools here in Ohio but last December we opened it up to any institution interested.

The University of Cincinnati maintains a quiet little email list for discussion of Microsoft and Google hosted services and we extend an invitation for schools to join the list.  In the future, notices about conference calls will go to that list, so that I'm not pestering groups like this one.  To join the listserv, send a message to and in the subject and body put Subscribe MS-StudentEmail.

Our call yesterday included the following schools:

Ball State
Bowling Green
Central State
Cleveland State
Ithaca College
Iowa State
Ohio University
Queens (Canada)
Texas-Pan American
Toronto (Canada)
UC Irvine
UNC Chapel Hill
Wayne State
Western Carolina
Wright State

Thanks for passing along information about our little get together to your email teams, I appreciate everyone taking time to be involved in the quarterly calls.
