Technology Websites, Links & Updates

  • Java Update for Gradebook

    Tech Services is continuing to work with the Java issues and gradebook. When anyone is prompted that their Java version is out of date, they need to select Later. Selecting Later will allow them to access gradebook, but if they select update or block, this will cause issues and a helpdesk ticket will be necessary to correct the issue. Please share this with your staff as soon as possible. We are continuing to try to solve this issue and apologize for the problems and delays this has caused.
