Possible online services disruption due to Internet related outage

A worldwide technology outage is causing disruption to some State of Illinois online systems.  We are aware of this issue and are diligently working on restoration.

Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics (STEAM) impact every aspect of our daily lives and this subject knows no boundaries across the world. With rapid changes in these areas transforming our workforce, it is critical that students understand the importance of STEAM course offerings and digital literacy opportunities through their educational endeavors. DoIT supports efforts of instilling innovation for STEAM in students beginning with our youngest learners in kindergarten through postsecondary education. DoIT has a vested interest in the development of a digitally literate workforce that cultivates creativity in all areas of STEAM.
