Posted 11.9.05The November update from ITG includes information on Spam Control, the Syllabus Server and CD & DVD duplication. Spotlight projects are the Emotional Competence Inventory and the course description module being used on the MBA site.
REMINDER: POST SYLLABI FOR SPRING COURSES
Faculty are encouraged to post their syllabi so students can preview the course organization, pacing and content, information about textbooks, cases, and course materials before the semester starts.
When logging in to the Syllabus Server to post your syllabus file, remember to use ‘wsom\’ before your username, for example, ‘wsom\abc123’.
SPAM E-MAIL @ CASE IS SUBSTANTIALLY REDUCED
In late September, ITS implemented a new anti-spam mechanism to boost Case's defense against incoming spam e-mail. This system is programmed to identify and isolate, with great precision, much of the spam targeted at Case's mail system. Case receives about 10 million spam messages on average each month. Case users should have already noticed a substantial reduction in their spam and junk e-mail.
To further fine-tune your personal lists, go to Case's Spam Control page at https://spamcontrol.case.edu/
ITG SERVICE: CD & DVD BURNING
ITG has a CD/DVD printer which will burn CDs and DVDs as well as print a label on them at the same time. The label image is printed on the CD/DVD itself, not onto a paper label. There is a small cost for this service to cover the cost of the media. The finished CDs or DVDs can be delivered in paper slip covers or jewel cases. This service is ideal for duplication requests of 20 - 250.
PROJECT SPOTLIGHT: EMOTIONAL COMPETENCE INVENTORY
The Emotional Competence Inventory - University edition (ECI-U) used in the MBA, EMBA and EDM programs was transferred to an online platform two years ago. Since then, both the student and their respondents take the survey online with real-time information available to instructors and students to track the number of responses.
This semester the application has been enhanced by the online delivery of the feedback reports to students. Once released by the instructors, students are able to access the four different feedback reports which are generated from live data; these reports are delivered in PDF form and can be saved or printed by the student.
PROJECT SPOTLIGHT: WEBSITE UPDATES
ITG recently worked with Ellen Schupper and Al DiFranco to update the MBA website. As the new viewbooks for the MSM, EMBA and EDM programs are produced, those sites will be updated as well. If your department or program’s website needs updating, please contact us!
The updated MBA website also features the new course description module which displays course titles and descriptions using information supplied directly from the University data systems. Updates to the course titles and descriptions made in ISIS are reflected on the web pages the next day. You can see this module in action by visiting the MBA site and going to the Certificate, Concentration or Core Curriculum areas.
