Missing Photos? Students can have their picture taken in the Computer Lab or can sign a release form to have their Case ID photo added to Classroom on Track. A photo release form that you may copy and distribute in class can be provided by ITG; completed forms should be returned to ITG in LL-21.
TIPS FOR USING THE FACULTY PROFILE DATABASE
The end of the year is a great time to enter your Faculty Profile Database information that will be used in activity reports and online faculty profiles. Here are a few things to remember when entering data:
Make sure your pop-up blockers are turned off or set to allow pop-ups from this the Faculty Database site.
When entering data, make sure to enter a date for each piece of information; without a date, the entry will not appear on an activity report. To view data entered without a date, select the "Show data for all years" option at the top of the page.
Double-check the list of “Case Degree Granting Courses Taught in 2005” for any missing or incomplete listings.
Most importantly, review your report by visiting the Printing tab.
