MSPM: In the Know, September 6, 2016

Top 3 for 6 September

1- Lecture Capture Service. A new lecture capture system is installed in Duques rooms where MSPM lectures are taught (254, 255 and 258). The new system is being managed by our local GWSB IT team. Problems downloading or viewing lectures online? E-mail oitshelp@gwu.edu.

2-Fall Registration. As a reminder, the last day to add a course via GWeb is Sunday, 11 September at 10pm. If you plan to add a course, make the decision early to avoid missed lectures and/or assignments. Sunday, 25 September at 10pm is the last day to drop classes online for the fall semester. After this date students will receive a notation of ‘W’ on their transcripts. Review withdrawals and refund information via the registrar’s website prior to dropping.

3-Short Term Study Away Programs (STAP). The GWSB Global & Experiential Education team has announced the winter/spring break program offerings. The courses qualify as general electives for the MSPM degree. Hear from faculty who will be leading programs, and meet students who have previously participated in these programs at this session.  Come to the Short-term Study Away Information Session hosted by the GWUSB Global and Experiential Education team:

Changes and Updates to Blackboard and Lecture Capture in Spring 2014

Students will experience several changes to the technology utilized in the MSPM program.

1. An additional login is required to watch the lecture capture. In Blackboard, you’ll select the link to watch the recorded lecture. Prior to viewing the recording, the Echo 360 site will ask that you enter a username and password. Enter your NetID and the same password used to log in to your email and on to Blackboard. Your NetID is the text to the left of the @ sign in your email. For example, if your email is mspmstudent@gwmail.gwu.edu, you NetID is mspmstudent.

2. A new version of Blackboard was released over the winter break. Take some time over the weekend to navigate through the updated version to discover new features and system improvements.

3. The use of iTunes U for course lectures and recordings was discontinued December 26, 2013. Beginning in the 2014 spring semester, ColonialCast Lecture Capture will be solely powered by the Echo360 service. With this service change, all future lecture capture content will be stored and delivered through the Echo360 platform.
