Requesting overhead transparency projectors and VCRs in classrooms. #AnnounceIT

September 30th, 2015 by Lynda S. LaRoche

A gentle reminder about the removal of overhead transparency projectors and VCRs from classrooms that was announced in Carol Smith’s August 18th “Starting the Year with Information Technology at DePauw – Fall 2015” email.

In addition to equipment upgrades in classrooms, we conducted a general tidying up and removed the overhead transparency projectors and VCRs from all technology classrooms. If you need a transparency projector or a VCR for a class, we will gladly put one back in the room for the semester (or year, whichever best suits your needs), but this change will eliminate the clutter of unused equipment sitting in corners taking up space and gathering dust.

To request a transparency projector or a VCR for a classroom, please email HelpDesk@depauw.edu with the building, room number, and when your next class meets so we can deliver it in time for your next class.

Thank you for your time!

Do not upgrade to Mac OS X El Capitan or you could break printing and access to the DePauw network. #AnnounceIT

Reminder: e-Services accounts for upperclass students will have a new look beginning 4/29. #AnnounceIT

April 27th, 2015 by Lynda S. LaRoche

2-days until new e-Services look for upperclass students

Beginning Wednesday, April 29th, e-Services accounts for upperclass students will have a new look, as shown below. This is the same look that first-year students have been using all year. It’s important to note that faculty and staff accounts will not change as part of this update.

The top section of student’s home page (labeled “A” in the image below) is for messages related to course registration and other timely academic events throughout the year. The messages section (“B” below) that is just below the messages section lists the student’s faculty advisor(s).

All of the familiar links and information that student’s use today will still be available through the e-Services menu, just by expanding the appropriate section (Academics, for example):
