eCampus will be unavailable Jan. 5-6 for maintenance; new features coming

The eCampus system will be unavailable from 8 a.m. Monday, Jan. 5 until 5 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 6 for maintenance. When it returns to service, faculty will notice several new features, including “Announcement Cast,” which provides the ability to send a simultaneous announcement to all classes an instructor is teaching.

Students, meanwhile, will have a new way to find opportunities through the “Internships and Job Search” tool. The portal to Internships.com should make it easier to match students with internships, part-time jobs and other entry-level positions by location. It also offers Facebook integration, and career predictor and resume building services.

Bb Grader is a free app available for instructors only to grade assignments on iPad or iPad mini with iOS 7.0 or greater. This app is not yet available for Android devices.
