MyIWU course pages can move to Moodle!

As you may have heard, the MyIWU portal will be changing this summer.  Some teachers have been using the built-in course pages in MyIWU, but those won’t be available after June 13. We are recommending a move to the Moodle course management system for course materials and communications with students. Here is a brief video overview explaining what the heck a Moodle course actually is:

Please contact us if you’d like to learn more about Moodle, or if you have questions about how IT Services can help you move your course materials over to the new system.

Coming Soon: A New MyIWU!

The campus portal MyIWU will change on June 13. For the most part, the change is cosmetic. The way you log in, access important services like Banner Self-Service and email, and interact with channels like Campus Calendar and Announcements will stay the same. Most users should not experience any disruption because of this change. If you currently use Course Studio (My Courses), any Groups or the Luminis SunOne calendar, these services will no longer be available. Please contact Rick Lindquist (rlindqui@iwu.edu) for help with setting up new solutions for your courses or groups and get assistance with exporting your calendar to Google.

The new MyIWU will be more streamlined, and we are confident that these improvements will help you work more efficiently. If you have any questions about the new MyIWU, please contact the Help Desk in person in the Thorpe Center, by phone at x3900, or submit an online help request at http://answers.iwu.edu/3900/ask
