eCampus down May 13-14 for maintenance; open labs and training set for May 15

The eCampus system will be unavailable from 8 a.m. Wednesday, May 13 until 5 p.m. Thursday, May 14 for scheduled maintenance. If the work is completed faster than anticipated, the system could be released to users before 5 p.m.

This maintenance will fix some bugs, set the Content Editor spell-check option to ON by default for instructors, and enhance some features in the Calendar tool. Users will have more choice in how their calendars are formatted and when making date selections. They also will be able to alter the first day of the week that starts the calendar view in both month and week views.

Information Technology Services has scheduled two sessions on Friday, May 15 for faculty members who want help. The open lab help session is for those who have already built the course(s) they teach but need some additional help. The one-hour training sessions are for eCampus newcomers, and walk-ins are welcome. Registration is not required.

Here are the details on both:
