One University Store
The One University store opened September 23, 2013 in the Oklahoma Memorial Union. It is an important component of the One University digital initiative. A collaboration between Information Technology and Web Communications, One University is a physical space where the OU community can experience technology like never before and be inspired to innovate. We're encouraging you to dream, design, and create innovative new ways to support the OU experience. See what's inside
The new store will feature some of the best academic content from both iTunes U and iBooks. It will encourage the creation of new digital content to support students and provide free open content to the world. The One University store will encourage hands-on learning and exploration with technology such as Google Liquid Galaxy, which enables virtual travel from space to sea using Google Earth. When patrons enter One University they will be greeted by a 103” digital interactive word wall—a feature intended to highlight the ways One University is using technology to save money and increase learning opportunities.
In addition to the interactive iTunes U and iBooks areas, programming at One University will focus on short educational talks known as Ed Talks. Modeled after the highly popular Ted Talks, Ed Talks can be given by faculty, staff, and students alike and will focus on the latest and most interesting tips and tricks for integrating fun and helpful learning technologies into people’s lives. One University hopes to partner with academic departments throughout the year to supplement teaching and learning opportunities with this quick and reliable format.
One University will be the newest location for a fully-staffed OU IT Service Center where students, faculty, and staff can find solutions to technical issues they encounter with their devices. OU IT’s Service Centers boast a three to five day turnaround time on almost all hardware repairs or even a quick 15-minute turnaround time for smaller issues. OU IT successfully repairs approximately 1,200 CPUs annually and can also help set up cell phones for email, network registration, and general fixes.
One University works in conjunction with the OU IT Store located at 329 West Boyd Street to be the second OU campus technology retailer. An Apple Authorized Campus Store, One University sells the most popular devices at educational prices, including MacBook Pros, MacBook Airs, iMacs, iPads, Apple TVs, and other technologies.
In addition the One U Store sells emerging technologies that will help you dream, design and create.
The One University Store is proud to be a partner with Microsoft and sells the Microsoft Surface and accessories.
