IT Weekly Announcement - February 12, 2014
Current & Scheduled Outages/System Updates
Sunday Maintenance – Reminder
Every Sunday, between 12:00am – 12:00pm, all systems will be intermittently unavailable while important maintenance and updates are performed.
Employee Separation ReminderWhen an employee separates from your department, it is important to notify the appropriate departments in order to have account access disabled. To facilitate notifications, please email email@example.com to notify both Human Resources and Business Services.
Network Maintenance – Davidson : Sunday, 2/22
Network maintenance will be performed on Sunday, February 22 from 8am-12pm in Davidson Hall. This will affect Human Resources, Admissions, Registrars, Financial Aid and Bursars. There will be no network connectivity during this outage.
Classroom Computer Issue - Frozen With Black Screen
Currently there is an issue affecting computers in the classroom where the system is frozen on a black screen. Information Technology is testing a solution and hopes to have a permanent solution soon. Until that time, the issue can be resolved by “hard rebooting” the workstation. This is done by holding the power button down until the machine shuts off, waiting 5 seconds and then powering the machine on again.
Blackboard Learn Training
Due to the snow cancellations and delays, you may want to consider using Bb Learn to supplement your classes. We invite you to attend a training session or peruse the online tutorials in the Oragnizations@ccsu tab in Bb Learn. If you do not see a training session that meets your needs, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule an individual training session.
Are you ready to start building your Blackboard Learn grade center to produce a final grade? We are offering training sessions focused on this very topic.

Microsoft Office 365 for Faculty & Staff – Update
A big thank you to everyone who registered for the Office 365 pilot program, it was a huge success! On Monday, February 16th all faculty & staff will automatically receive access to the new Office 365 offering. You will receive an email from “CCSU Accounts Management” with information and instructions. The new Office 365 offering will allow you to install the full version of Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, and more) on up to 5 compatible PCs and Macs, plus 5 tablets (including iPad!). This benefit will replace our current Home Use Program, which only allowed for two installations of Office for home use for a fee.
