Loyola transitioned to a new, cloud-based hosting vendor for Moodle. Faculty and students will both benefit from this move. Moodle will work as easily on a smartphone as it does on a laptop today and more digital tools (e.g. Adobe Connect) will be available inside Moodle. For questions, please contact Tracy McMahon.
DSS Testing Lab
Disability Support Services will expand the number of testing workstations equipped with adaptive technology (such as screen readers or voice recognition software). For questions, please contact Marcia Wiedefeld.
Teacher Workstation Upgrades
Instructor workstations across all three Loyola campuses will be upgraded to include Panopto which can be used for capturing lectures as well as digital presentation materials.
Each workstation model is an “all in one”---with functionality completely contained within the monitor. For more information, please contact Tom Wilson.
Office 365: Email Migration
Underway to be completed by August 15
All faculty and staff email will be upgraded to Office 365. For more information, contact Pat Donohue.
SharePoint, the system that the Inside Loyola portal and all team sites are built in will be upgraded. For more information, please contact Gretchen Cannon.
New features include:
Searching for an item is much faster and easier. When searching by key word, you can hover over each item in the search results and see a preview of that item without having to click on it. For example, if an item in the list is a Word document, you will be able to see the document just by hovering the mouse over it and then you can decide whether this is what you are looking for before clicking on it.
Anywhere Apps (Citrix) will be replaced by Loyola Workspace for secure remote access to university applications and services.
Secure file storage will be available in Workspace for saving and working with sensitive university data.
