IT Weekly Announcement - March 28, 2013
Current & Scheduled Outages/System Updates
There are currently no scheduled outages planned at this time.
New Netshare Request Form
To request a new netshare folder for the purpose of Search Committee work or special projects/assignments, please submit the request using our new Netshare Request form located here (you may also access this form using the Forms link on the left side of the IT home page at www.ccsu.edu/its). Please be advised that by requesting a netshare folder, you become the owner of the netshare and are responsible for ensuring that no Personally Identifiable Information (PII) is stored on the netshare (if you need to store PII, please request a Secure Netshare by clicking here).
Instructor Workstation Updates
During Spring Break, the Media Center will be updating all classroom instructor workstations in order to relocate the SVGA laptop cable to the rear of the switcher in the cabinet. This should present no change in functionality. However, instead of having to plug a cable into the front of the switcher unit, or search for a loose cable in the cabinet, the labeled SVGA laptop cable will appear through a grommet near the top of the cabinet. If you have any issues using a classroom instructor workstation after the break, please contact the IT Help Desk at x21720 or via email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Blackboard Vista Phase-out:
The Instructional Design and Technology Resource Center would like to remind faculty that this is the last semester Vista will be available. Any online, hybrid or web enhanced courses must be in Blackboard Learn starting with the Summer 2013 semester.
Blackboard Learn Training
We are offering Blackboard Learn workshops to help you with the transition. Please visit www.ccsu.edu/Learn to view the schedule and register. Please check back often as sessions will be added throughout the semester.
