ITS is pleased to announce that faculty, staff and student email will be moving to Microsoft Live@ edu by June 2012. Live@edu will also replace the Oracle Calendar system although the exact timing of the Oracle Calendar migration has not yet been determined. ITS is confident that this move will provide a reliable, robust, integrated email and calendar system for faculty, staff and students.
At the recommendation of Faculty Council, an online plagiarism detection service called Turnitin is now available to faculty who wish to have students' papers analyzed for originality against a database of web pages, articles, and student papers. In addition to the OriginalityCheck feature, there is also GradeMark for paperless grading, and PeerMark for online peer review.
ITS is currently planning for software upgrades in ITS-managed computer labs for the 2011-12 academic year.
If you need specific software installed or upgraded to support instruction, please notify Lisa Efing-Guida no later than Wednesday, June 1, 2011.
