Faculty members should not use course tools in MIX while preparing for the fall 2015 semester because the ‘My Courses’ tab and all associated features will be deactivated this summer. This change was initially announced in November 2014 to give instructors sufficient time to plan for the transition.
eCampus offers virtually every feature that MIX offers, along with some additional tools. Instructors will still be able to email students before a course begins using either eCampus or STAR.
Faculty can view a side-by-side comparison of eCampus and MIX, and find the answers to other Frequently Asked Questions here:http://it.wvu.edu/services/training/mix.
The current version of MIX is nearing its end of life, and Information Technology Services is beta testing new portal software that integrates extensively with eCampus. More information about the new portal will be announced in the months ahead.
