This winter break we will be adding a new Active Learning Classroom in Miller hall to accommodate larger class sizes. We will be combining Miller 27 and Miller 28 to create one large 60 seat classroom. The design will be similar to Miller 21, with node style chairs and whiteboards surrounding the walls. This room will also feature power stations and several TV's around the room providing adequate coverage of content.
What are important date(s) to note?
We have one more scheduled date remaining. Please remember that during this time, certain services and systems will require downtime in order for the move to take place. The length of time these services and systems will be unavailable will vary depending on the work that is required. Note: Blackboard Learning Management System (blackboard.pace.edu), the Pace homepage (www.pace.edu), Pace e-mail (email.pace.edu), and the University calendar (viewing) will be available throughout all the stages listed below.
What should I do?
- Please continue to monitor these communications so you have the necessary information about which services and systems are affected.
- Sign up for the ITS Notices Listserv.
- You may need to make adjustments to your schedules and when you use those services and systems during this downtime.
- You can also check the schedule for these services and systems at our IT System Status page (http://status.pace.edu).
This redesign, completed in conjunction with the Student Success Interns, the Office of Student Success, and our mobile vendor, Dublabs, used data collected from usage statistics to present the most used content by the Pace community more directly and succinctly to the users of the MyPace app.
We continue to seek ways to improve the mobile experience for all members of the Pace community and welcome any feedback you may have for the next update.

The likelihood that you will run into issues with your primary computer housing your important files and research can be high if you do not take some preventative steps. Types of issues that can manifest are deletion of files, hardware failure, losing the device, or even theft.
When something like this happens, backups are most often the only way to recover the data that has been lost. There are two approaches you can take:
- backing up only the important data, or
- a full system backup
Both can be accomplished by using the built in tools available to you on your system of choice.
Two well-known free solutions tools are:
Remember that your focus should be on recovery from a system failure, check the quality of your backup sets and make sure you have what you need prior to needing a system restore. Some key points for this are:
- Automate your backups as much as possible and check them regularly.
- When rebuilding an entire system from backups be sure to reapply the latest patches and updates to your system and software before going back online with the device.
- Outdated backup can cause you issues, therefore it is best to destroy or delete them to avoid them from being a source of compromise for your data.
- If you are using a cloud storage solution be sure to research the policies of the provider to make sure they meet your requirements - read the end user agreement thoroughly.
