Tech Tune-ups & Tips every Tuesday and Thursday at 10 am. Come Zoom with the E-learning Team as they offer two 60-minute sessions each week on how to maximize your use of Moodle and learning technologies as you get ready for classes this Fall. Each session will open with 15-minutes of “pertinent tips & best practices” about important Moodle features/resources. The final 45 minutes will provide training on a specific learning experience or tool.

Fellowship Friday Returns this Week

submitted by

Fridays | “Fellowship Fridays” | 2 pm – 3 pm, ZOOM

CTL is joining Bridget Robinson-Riegler, Psychology Professor and member of Faculty Senate, to bring you Fellowship Fridays support sessions. All faculty members and teaching staff are invited to gather and share their experiences with teaching, learning, and advising in this strange new world. – we’ll trade ideas, advice, highs, lows, successes, and failures – or maybe we’ll just plain old vent. Most importantly, we will attempt to inoculate ourselves against one of the more insidious side effects of this pandemic – isolation. So grab a cup of coffee or tea, or pour a glass of wine, and Zoom in to support your fellow instructors and work through this challenging time together.

The statement includes details about how to report sexual misconduct, what happens when a report is filed, and immediate resources available to members of the Augsburg community who have experienced sexual assault, stalking, or relationship violence.

Want to Be in the Loop When Moodle or Another IT Service is Down?

submitted by

Launched at the start of 2020, the IT Status Page has the current status of IT systems and services.

On this page you can subscribe to receive email or text alerts about major service issues (you can even select which services you care about – moodle, telecom, internet, etc). Please keep in mind a human still has to create the alerts and in some cases solving the problem will take priority over updating the status page. Some updates may come after the fact.

Our hope is that this empowers you, if you’re interested, to receive updates about major service issues that you care about.
