TECH TAXI

IT MarCom student interns developed the concept of Tech Taxi in 2016, which is an IT golf cart shuttle service led by MarCom interns to engage students with the IT brand and IT services while offering lifts to class. IT News Blog Excerpt: “The response has been overwhelmingly positive, so the students continue thinking of new ways to use it. We’ve partnered with OU Summer Session as they serve free snow cones on the South Oval. We’ve handed out VIP passes to concerts. We’ve helped people escape the summer heat. We even won an award! But mostly we’ve created an opportunity to connect with the campus community and share our excitement for OU IT.”

As an extension of Tech Taxi and inspired by Cash Cab, the popular mobile trivia series, the “IT on the Streets” social media campaign was developed by the MarCom Student Intern Team in 2018 to drive overall student engagement with the IT brand and inform students about the ITservices tech resources available. As incentive to wave down the Tech Taxi for a ride to class, students were offered the chance to win an Amazon Dot by answering a series of questions related to IT services and tech resources, which were posted on social media before we hit the streets.
