Dear New Students (New Freshmen and New Grad Students), As you start the semester, there has been a password sync issue which occurred between when most of you claimed your accounts mid to early summer, and the start of the semester. This has caused challenges with logging into Schoology, even though you can log into the Wheaton Portal and your My.Wheaton.edu gmail. The fix for this involves logging into accounts.wheaton.edu and syncing the accounts. The instructions are linked here, and Solution 2 is what has worked for those that have contacted the AIT Service Desk. The instructions are also shown below. Issue If a person has been given additional accounts since they last set their password, they won't be able to sign in to their new accounts until they set a password on the new accounts. These instructions can also be used if a person tries to set a password and it fails for some accounts. Set password on new accounts only To sync your existing password, use the sync feature in the Wheaton Account Center. Sign in to http://accounts.wheaton.edu Select the My Accountstab Click the ReSync Passwords icon: Note: If the ReSync Passwords icon does not exist, then the passwords on the accounts may already be in sync.   Choose Active Directory for authentication, and type your password.   Success message    ]]>

Which classrooms were updated this summer? Great question!  Summer is the best time to get into the classrooms and perform maintenance and upgrades.  AIT was working on some large projects and some smaller ones.   There’s an astonishing amount of work that goes into each of these projects: faculty are consulted with, plans are drawn up, vendors bid for the opportunity to do the work, purchase orders are written,  workers are supervised, and the end result is an improved classroom experience for our students and faculty.  When we met with you to discuss the needs for the classrooms, here is what we heard: We are grateful for the money that has been provided for the technology refresh cycles in our classrooms.  With the limited resources we have, we did this: Teaching desks are too big and clunky; need to simplify teaching stations Purchased smaller, lighter, height-adjustable teaching desks Need to connect wirelessly to the projector from a wide variety of devices Installed wireless connection platform that works for a variety of devices (learn more about Via Connect Pro here) Need to be more consistent in refresh cycles Similar button panels in all new rooms Need to be able to easily connect faculty laptops Ability to easily connect laptops and external DVD/CD drives with adaptors CD/DVD drives are rarely used, and more faculty are digitizing content and including links in Schoology Installed smaller, less expensive in-room computers with no DVD/CD drives. Contact AIT to learn more about how to digitize media you need for your class.  Desire to preserve the center white board space Installed monitors on each side of the central white board Major renovations, including help from Facilities, was done on five classrooms.  New flat panels were hung, and there are now lighter, smaller, height-adjustable desks for the professors (in response to requests from faculty members.)  We have emailed the faculty who teach in these rooms to share more information about the changes there.  These classrooms with major renovations are the following: BGC 012 BLA 322 MEY 217 MEY 302 MEY 357 Minor renovations which may not be immediately obvious when you walk in the room, were performed on six classrooms.  These technology upgrades will provide higher resolution on the screens, more brightness, and more reliability of the system overall. We have emailed the faculty who teach in these rooms to share more information about the changes there.  These classrooms with minor renovations are the following: ADAMS 207 BLA 124 BLA 339 MEY 021 MEY 111 MEY 129 We upgraded the wireless presentation access in over 40 classrooms so that you can project from any device (Windows, Mac, Surface, iPad, iPhone, or Android) using the new Via Connect Pro.  This replaces the Apple TVs we had, which did not work with all devices.  This upgrade also offers a higher level of reliability.  You can learn more about Via Connect Pro here.  We encourage you to schedule a personal orientation session in your classroom to familiarize yourself with the technology by contacting the AIT Service Desk.  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Academic and Institutional Technology at 630.752.4357 (HELP) or by email at ait.service.desk@wheaton.edu. ]]>

How to share Google Docs with Faculty Did you know that every professor at Wheaton College has a my.wheaton.edu (gmail) account so they can share Google Docs with you?  The faculty and staff email addresses are different than student email addresses (@wheaton.edu instead of @my.wheaton.edu), but you can still share Google Docs with your professors.  Here’s what you do: From your Google Doc, go to the upper right-hand corner and click on the blue “Share” button (circled in red.) Enter your professor’s firstname.lastname@my.wheaton.edu address. Note the “my” in the middle of the email address below, circled in red.  Also, the pen icon, circled in red, indicates that the person you are sharing with can edit your document. Another option would be to create a link to share. 4.  Choose the setting “anyone with the link can edit” and email this link to your professor at firstname.lastname@wheaton.edu. See screenshot below with the red arrows pointing to the correct settings. Learn more sharing Google Docs here. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Academic and Institutional Technology at 630.752.4357 (HELP) or by email at ait.service.desk@wheaton.edu. ]]>

An award-winning AIT Department! June was a busy month for AIT!  We hosted the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities Commission on Technology (CCCU COT) Conference here on the Wheaton College campus June 4-6.  About a hundred people from IT departments in Christian colleges around the country (and the world) joined us for a few days of learning and fellowship.  During the conference some awards were handed out—and the Innovative IT Team Award went to the Academic and Scholarly Technology (AST) team at Wheaton College! That same week, Wendy Woodward, Chief Information and Campus Services Officer, was awarded the CIO+ award by SIM Chicago!  The entire AIT team is thrilled to be able to support you all as we work together for Christ and His Kingdom.  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Academic and Institutional Technology at 630.752.4357 (HELP) or by email at ait.service.desk@wheaton.edu. ]]>

Benefits of Technology-Enabled Teaching (a faculty member’s perspective) Hannah Stolze, Associate Professor of Marketing and Supply Chain Management in the Business and Economics department shares her view on the importance of incorporating technology into the classroom: “Classroom technology enables the modern business classroom to achieve the goals of a liberal arts education. Building knowledge is no longer limited to readings and classroom lectures and discussion. Technology-enabled teaching extends learning more effectively outside the classroom to engage students before they enter a class session to be prepared to actively participate in critical thinking and problem solving with technological mediums they are comfortable using. We often limit IT to information technology when we should be thinking of it in terms of ICT, information and communications technologies. Integrated classrooms like BGC 134 allow faculty to walk into the classroom with more than a piece of chalk (or more likely a dry-erase marker) and with higher expectations of student engagement. Students walk into class with a basic understanding of content through readings, online video talks, and online quizzes. Class time can then be utilized to delve deeper into the context to solve problems by researching corporate information and data online, generating probable solutions and creating presentations on the spot that students will then present and articulate utilizing their own technology platform in the classroom.” If you’d like to explore the technology options available here at Wheaton College, contact Steven Park.  We would love to work with you to think about how to incorporate technology into your classroom experience.  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Academic and Institutional Technology at 630.752.4357 (HELP) or by email at ait.service.desk@wheaton.edu. ]]>

What's the simplest way for students to sign up for your office hours? Are you looking for a free and simple way for students to sign up to meet with you during your office hours?  We recommend Calendly!  This free service gives students the opportunity to find a time that works for them to meet with you during your scheduled office hours.  The system automatically notifies both you and the student when he/she has signed up, and the notice goes straight to your Outlook calendar (faculty) and my.wheaton account (students.)  This is a great way for students to sign up for a time without having to trek over to your office to check a list on your door.  It also electronically notifies both parties in the event of a cancellation or schedule change.  Student Government representatives respectfully encourage faculty to consider using this automated tool. “I find it so much better than going back and forth with email or a sign-up sheet on my door. Students can easily see when I am available,” commented Dr. Terry Huttenlock.  Sophomore Allie Lovell says, “Using Calendly to schedule office hours with my professor is so simple! Calendly is well-organized and straightforward to use. I especially appreciate how it sends me email reminders about meetings I have coming up.” You can set up Calendly for yourself today by following these simple steps. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Academic and Institutional Technology at 630.752.4357 (HELP) or by email at ait.service.desk@wheaton.edu.   ]]>

Introducing Proofpoint Every day more and more cyberattacks are heading toward our campus.  As AIT strives strive to improve security we have chosen Proofpoint as our new technology to help protect against specific threats that are distributed via email, including phishing and targeted attacks.  These threats originate from malicious web sites which are triggered when users click on links (URLs) in email messages.  Messages containing these links often look legitimate, even to the discerning eye.  This technology protects you and Wheaton College’s assets by blocking access to malicious URLs.  Per our required annual cybersecurity training, it is still imperative that users continue to carefully choose what they click on. You can read more about Proofpoint here.   If the link is safe, you will see no difference.  If it is malicious, you will see a notification in your browser like the following: This notification shows the URL was malicious, and the technology successfully protected you. In addition, malicious or suspicious emails will now be “caught” by Proofpoint and put into a Quarantine.  When this happens, you will get an email from Proofpoint once a day alerting you to check the emails in your quarantine.  You’ll have the opportunity to review them to confirm that the emails are, indeed, malicious.  The system will “learn” over time as you help it know whether it has caught any false positives.  You will receive more information about Proofpoint before it is rolled out to you.  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Academic and Institutional Technology at 630.752.4357 (HELP) or by email at ait.service.desk@wheaton.edu. ]]>
