UCCS Recognized as Gold Winner
A round of applause to Media Services!
Media Services is excited to announce that the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs had been recognized as a GOLD winner in the 11c. Video: Fundraising - Short Videos category of the CASE District VI Institutional Awards for 2019-2020!
The video submission of the Power of One Fundraising Campaign video can be viewed on YouTube, and all District VI award winners can be found at Case.org.
Coming Soon...New Student Portal
Beginning February 13, 2020, students will have the ability to test drive the upcoming student portal. Once logged into their current student portal, students will see the above button, which will take them to the new portal.
The new interface will provide dynamic content, allowing students to view their schedule, GPA, and finance information, but yet still have the ability to access all the links they previously saw in the classic portal.
A screenshot of the new and improved layout can be found below.
Feedback is encouraged and can be provided through the New Portal Feedback tile.
Old Teleconference Room Converted into Multi-Use Classroom
EPC 107 was used for many years as a teleconferencing room, but as teleconferencing began to be phased out and de-centralized, the room was converted into a classroom starting in 2016. The room was previously used to support the Communications department classes until last fall when specific needs were identified on campus including: a location for the Air Force ROTC to host a class in conjunction with CU Boulder via teleconference, the Game Design and Development lab needing a larger meeting space, and a location for the eSport club to use gaming computers to practice and host scrimmages.
In a joint effort from multiple entities, including EAS, OIT, Communications, Media, Air Force ROTC, and the Office of the Vice-Chancellor for Administration and Finance, the room will be in use full time until May 2021 for the aforementioned groups.
The Transact OneCard project continues to make progress in its implementation efforts and at this point, all of the Point of Sale (POS) terminals have been upgraded. The team is actively working to complete the upgrade of the door access systems and is currently focused on wrapping up the resident halls before students return later this month. Once this is complete, the team will shift their focus to the remaining buildings. Transact will continue to provide end-user training over the next several weeks.
As we are gearing up for another successful semester, we would like to take this opportunity to remind you of a few things.
