ITS Time to Connect

News Story

It’s all about getting connected. ITS has updates about building your course schedule, important information about Blackboard, upgrading your e-mail, and more!

Here’s some important news and notes from our friends in Information Technology Services:

Plan Your Future Schedule
Trying to build your course schedule? That’s where Schedule Planner comes in. Build, modify, and save course schedules in real-time based on anything from group activities, to work schedules, to study days.

This useful tool can be accessed on the portal in the Students tab, under Registration and Grades. For more info, visit the Schedule Planner website.

Blackboard Migration
Blackboard is also taking some time to regroup over the winter break. Here are some important dates to look out for:

-Fall 2015 courses will be unavailable beginning Wednesday, December 23, at 12:00 p.m.

-Any courses that run during winter break will become available on the course start date, as defined in the banner

-Spring 2016 courses will be available on the course start date, as defined in the banner, or as early as Monday, January 11

Improved E-mail
