iChat with ASU

Video chat has been restored: to a small part of the Division at least.

The Division has successfully negotiated an arrangement that allows the computers in the CLRC to be used by students on campus here at UC learning Japanese to video chat with Japanese students from Aichi Shukutoku University (ASU) in Japan. We were able to negotiate this arrangement because the computers in the CLRC are all Macintosh computers that are not subject to the same malware attacks as Windows PCs, so there is a much reduced risk of the computers being compromised and threatening others on the UC network.
