QuickR is a web-based collaboration tool for DISC members, generously hosted for DISC by Christian Brothers Services. The easiest way to get to QuickR is to visit the DISC web site at www.discinfo.org and click the promi- nent link to QuickR . QuickR features include:
general discussion board for presenting questions to other DISC members
files library with sample IS policies and other documents
discount programs discussion with topic-specific discussions on discount programs
conference archives with presentations from past conferences
discussion archive with old discussion threads
dBay equipment trading for offering un-needed equipment to other DISC members
In addition to the content that is accessible to all DISC members, QuickR has restricted-access “rooms” for use by the Board of Trustees, Web Site Committee, and Conference Planning team.
QuickR sends out daily e-mail alerts when members post new content, so you don’t need to check the QuickR every day. If you prefer not to receive the daily alerts you can change the setting in your QuickR user account.
If your diocese is a DISC member and you don’t yet have a QuickR username and password, e-mail a request to firstname.lastname@example.org
