Top 10 Things You Need to Know About Your LMS

1. I Am Your Tech Rep

  • We have two Tech Reps: myself and Amy Scott.
  • I will handle teaching Digital Citizenship lessons again this year, but you need to cover it throughout the year, too.
  • Wayfind Assessment should be done in the Fall this year (less chaotic time of year)
  • Everyone needs to check/reset their profiles in Eduphoria. Make sure you choose the right campus.
  • I no longer have to be the go-between with you and Help Desk. If you have a problem, feel free to ask me for help, but I may send you to Help Desk.
  • Help Desk icon (fastest way) on B*Connect or ext. 39100
  • Student naming schemes will be the same. If a student can't login, log a ticket with Help Desk
  • We MUST be diligent about taking care of devices. Chromebook broken? Campus expense.
  • NEVER move a phone! Directions for logging into a phone are on B*Connect
  • I will pass out all tech equipment later this week (hopefully)
