Today, the Baylor Libraries launched a new baylor.edu/library! The new site has the same powerful search functionality users expect while presenting a new mobile-first experience and plenty of new features.
Presenters in Zoom can now share your presentation as a Virtual Background for an immersive sharing experience. Sharing your slides as a Virtual Background allows your participants to view your video imposed directly on the screen share.
Instructure is hosting a series of livestreamed support sessions on Monday, August 17, to assist faculty with common Canvas issues. If you need assistance with creating quizzes, using Canvas' gradebook, developing assignments on the platform, cross-listing course sections, and importing course content these sessions are for you!
During the week of August 17-21, the Baylor Libraries' Learning Spaces team will test the auto-recording functionality of classrooms across the Baylor campus. On August 18-19, they will offer training for faculty on how to operate each of the four different types of our technology-rich classrooms.
The Registrar's office is making some changes to section numbers on hybrid classes this fall that is resulting in new, empty course shells being created in Canvas and faculty losing access to their old course shells. If this happens, please contact the ITS Help Desk for assistance.
We understand that the COVID-19 pandemic has created uncertainties and unique challenges as you plan to return to Baylor in the Fall. Our goal is to be responsive to the needs of our students as it relates to course scheduling.
Proctorio will no longer be available for use as of Monday, August 17. Beginning in Fall 2020, Respondus Lockdown Browser and Monitor will be the only available online proctoring solution available for campus-wide use.
Beginning on Monday, May 18, all Zoom meetings or webinars will be required to use a password. This change will also affect any previously scheduled or recurring meeting as well as for all personal meeting rooms.
