Campus Prepares for ANGEL to Blackboard Learn migration

September 24, 2014

SUNY Oswego will be migrating from the ANGEL Learning Management System (LMS) to Blackboard Learn.  Both systems can be used to teach fully online courses and to enhance hybrid and face-to-face classes.  The campus will be completely migrated to Blackboard Learn by the Fall 2015 semester.

iOS 8 Release

September 16, 2014

Apple will be releasing iOS 8 Wednesday, September 17. We expect there will be a large number of campus users that will be downloading the software update to their Apple devices.  As a result, all campus users might experience some sluggishness on the network.  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Help Desk at x3456, help@oswego.edu or 26 Lanigan Hall.

Wifi Expansions in Mahar, Rich and Lanigan

August 25, 2014

SUNY Oswego has committed to a three year expansion of the campus wifi with the first locations being completed by mid-September.

Year 1 of the three year plan includes wifi expansion to Mahar, Rich, Lanigan second floor, Lee/Shineman Quad, Sheldon Ballroom and Culkin.

Personal Wireless Network Devices in Residence Halls

August 24, 2014

Students living in the residence halls should be careful not to add any personal wireless devices that could affect the operation of the campus wifi system.

Changes to Printing in Marano Campus Center 206

August 24, 2014

CTS has made some changes to the printing in Marano Campus Center 206.  Anyone using that room for the Fall 2014 semester should be aware.
The computers in Marano 206 are now set up to print to the printers in room 207, across the hall.  This is based on low utilization of the previous 206 printer and the need to distribute printing across campus in a different way to maximize resources.

Improvements to Shineman Public Printing

August 23, 2014

Last fall, the Shineman Center opened with one general access quick print station in room 188.  Once the station was fully operational, we quickly heard that one station was not enough.  We are happy to announce that CTS and Auxiliary Services have jointly identified space near the Fusion Cafe area of Shineman for two quick print stations.
