The Cloud

Cloud technology allows students to access campus computer resources on their own devices from both on and off campus. Students can access campus software such as Microsoft Office, as well as specialized software required for their programs of study. Cloud technology also provides access to network storage and printing services from a student’s own laptop, tablet, or even smartphone.

Accessing the cloud is easy. Students only need to download and configure a free application in order to use the service.

Blackboard "Crocodoc" Tool Outage

Mon, 04/07/2014 - 3:06pm -- by Harmony Garletts

Blackboard has reported a widespread issue with the Crocodoc tool.  This is the tool that runs the inline grading, so the issue can cause problems in the submission and grading of assignments, blogs and journals.  We have a ticket open with Blackboard and will update you when the issue is resolved.
