eCampus will be down 8 a.m. May 10 to 5 p.m. May 11 for upgrade

The eCampus system will be down 8 a.m. May 10 to 5 p.m. May 11 for an upgrade that will improve security and give instructors several new features, including “receipts” that provide time, date and other information about student submissions. If the work on eCampus is completed earlier than anticipated, the system could be available before 5 p.m.

New features include:

  • Reminders: From the full grade center, instructors can send email reminders for assignments and assessments, including manually created columns. Students and members of the groups will receive a system-generated email for the missing coursework that lists the course name, coursework and due date where applicable. 
  • Drag and Drop Files: When instructors create content items, assignments and web links, they can drag and drop files from their computers. This feature is also available to students when they submit assignments. 
  • Floating Submit Bar: Submit and Cancel buttons will always pin to the bottom of the page, regardless of the device you’re using. 
  • Submission Receipts: Within the grade center from the reports menu, instructors can keep track of all student submissions, regardless of whether the attempt or assignment is deleted or the submission history is changed. A submission receipt is captured and includes information such as attached file information, date and time the student submitted it. This provides evidence for academic disputes and gives students assurance about their work.
