Oracle HCM Overview (Human Resources)

Our Banner systems are being replaced by Oracle for three business functions at the College – human resources management, along with budget and finance management. The systems are in the process of being built and tested. The Oracle Human Capital Management (HCM) system will go live on March 12, 2023, to support the HR department. More information about these systems and related training will be forthcoming in early 2023.

Oracle ERP & EPM Overview (Finance)

Our Banner systems are being replaced by Oracle for three business functions at the College – human resources management, along with budget and finance management. The systems are in the process of being built and tested. The Oracle Enterprise Resource Management (ERP and EPM) system will go live on July 1, 2023, to support the Finance department. More information about these systems and related training will be forthcoming in early 2023.

Canvas Overview:

Canvas will be replacing Schoology as our new Learning Management System (LMS) and will go live at the start of fall semester this coming August! We couldn’t be more excited to bring this state-of-the-art LMS to Wheaton! 

This is a big transition and requires a considerable amount of time to set up courses in the new system. As much as we have tried, we’ve not found an ‘easy’ button; Schoology cartridges do not transfer nicely to Canvas. Faculty members, please be sure to sign up for training as soon as you can!

What should I or my team do to prepare?

Attend all trainings we are offering in the spring. 

Where can I access Canvas?

What is the anticipated timeline?

Schoology will be fully transitioned to the Canvas LMS by summer of 2023. The graduate school made the shift to Canvas over the summer of 2022 and our undergraduate departments will be fully utilizing Canvas in time for the start of summer classes in 2023. 

When will I lose access to my Schoology account?

Schoology will no longer be accessible to faculty and students after July 1, 2023.

Who do I contact if I want to set up 1:1 training with AIT?

You can schedule a 1:1 time to meet with Steve Park or Shari Lendy to go over your Canvas related questions. Here is Steve's Bookings link and here is Shari's Bookings link.  Feel free to select the date and time that works best for you and reserve it through the link.

Slate (Admissions CRM) 

The Wheaton College graduate and undergraduate admissions departments have been working hard to complete the migration from Ellucian CRM Recruit to Slate. Slate represents the state of the art in student recruiting and application management. We are already seeing the fruits of this change. Applications have been coming in steadily and are being processed more efficiently. Slate’s portal functionality will also provide a better experience for admitted students. A complete transition from the old system to Slate will be done by March 2023.
