CI Keys is a pilot project aimed at improving digital literacy by providing the opportunity to master the tools and technology that make up the web. Faculty and students involved in CI Keys will have the opportunity to manage their own domain. CI Keys users will have access to powerful open source Internet tools that will allow them to create online portfolios, exhibits, online journals and magazines, wikis, FAQs, and many other kinds of digital resources and publications for use in courses, the co-curriculum or wherever and however else they choose. To learn more about CI Keys sign up for the Beta test. You will be notified as opportunities arise.
