iSchool Help Desk & ITD July Announcements

 
 

Hello iSchool Faculty and Staff,

The Help Desk and ITD team hope you are having a great summer! We are here with announcements and reminders regarding technology updates and other helpful information.

Canvas Updates

The iSchool will begin making a transition to the Canvas learning management system beginning in Fall 2021 for undergraduate courses and anyone interested in becoming an early adopter. The transition will continue with an opt-in in Spring 2022 and an opt-out in Summer 2022 with all courses possible being migrated to the new system by Fall 2022.

The ITD team will be providing one-on-one consultations with you when the time comes to migrate your course. Please see our most recent communication for more information and fill out our survey to let us know when and how you would like to make your move. If you are interested in more information about this transition, please visit campus' Canvas transition website.

Moodle Consultations

The ITD team is happy to schedule a consultation to help set up your Moodle gradebook or to answer any other Moodle questions. Please reach out the Help Desk to set up your consultation!

Accessibility

What is accessibility? What is my role and responsibility in providing accessible technology and content?

Canvas' Accessiblity 101 course has answers to those questions and much more! This course offers training in various aspects of accessibility from an introduction to disabilities to available technologies for supporting accessiblity to the legal and institutional considerations of accessible technology.

NOTE: This course was created by our DRES team here on campus, and they have made this resource widely available to those outside our university. This training is not hosted on our Illinois Canvas instance, so you may be required to create an additional login to access this material.

Cybersecurity Training

Beginning in July 2021, there will be required cybersecurity trainings. Optional trainings are now available through June, and you should receive monthly emails from Technology Services that will direct you to the trainings. Please email the Help Desk if you have any questions.
