New address for OIT website

Starting April 5, the OIT website’s primary address will be http://oit.colorado.edu. Through the transition process to new hosting, we have ensured that links going to any page with an address of www.colorado.edu/oit will be redirected to that same page on http://oit.colorado.edu. Regardless, if you have bookmarks or links pointing to the OIT website, it is recommended that you update them to reflect this change.

Just go to http://lynda.colorado.edu/ and log in with your CU Boulder IdentiKey.
