On Wednesday, May 21st ITS will be performing extensive work on the IC web infrastructure which will result in a 2-3 hour downtime of websites and web services starting at 6:00 AM.

The main IC website, as well as myHome, myIthaca, and HomerConnect will all be unavailable during the downtime. While the normal IC website content will not be available, people who attempt to access www.ithaca.edu will be re-directed to a temporary web page that will provide direct links to the following major services:

  • Outlook email and calendar
  • The ACE page (access to HomerAdmin, Parnassus, Argus and Advance)
  • Sakai

All other Web services will be unavailable. We'll make every effort to have the work completed by 8:00 AM, but if complications arise the downtime may extend to as late as 9:00 AM.

Note that myHome is set as the default browser Web page on many campus computers, and will display a "page not found" message during the downtime.

Like any organization that deals with sensitive information, Ithaca College must be in compliance with a variety of security standards. To ensure this compliance, our security practices and policies are regularly reviewed by external auditors, and often result in recommended or mandated changes to our security practices. One such recommendation that the college as a whole has been asked to comply with is the enforcement of screen saver passwords on virtually all college-owned computers.

Yvonne Rogalski, assistant professor in the Department of Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology, had her research highlighted on the University of Florida website this week.

Rogalski, who did her doctoral work at UF, conducted a study showing older adults remembered more details from a text when they read it and described it to someone else compared to those who just re-read it several times.

The study was inspired by a training technique Rogalski developed at UF called "Read Attentively, Summarise and Review." This method, known as RASR, calls for participants to read a passage out loud and then summarize what they’ve read after each paragraph.

Rogalski’s research was originally published online by Aphasiology in February and appeared in the journal’s print edition in April.

To read the full article on Rogalski’s research, visit the UF website here.
