On Thursday, March 21, Information Systems hosted the 8th annual TechXploration! TechXploration provides members of our campus community a unique opportunity to share and see the many ways that technology is being incorporated into the classroom.
Each of the 30+ presentations were unique to a specific topic and incorporated posters, technology, videos, activities, and lots of engaging conversation! For 3 hours, approximately 200 faculty, students and staff interacted with one another, learning more about each other, both professionally and personally. Presenters and attendees engaged in animated conversations regarding the positive aspects and challenges encountered when using technology to enhance teaching, learning, and scholarship.
The LMS Review Steering Committee invites all faculty, staff, and students to join us as we engage with vendors demonstrating what the Sakai and Canvas platforms can do for our community. The steering committee plans to recommend campus-wide adoption of one of these two systems by the end of the academic year, and feedback from those who attend these sessions will be an essential driver of that recommendation.
We have asked the vendors to demonstrate a variety of features, tailored to specific cohorts on campus. If your time is limited, we encourage you to make it to the first hour of the “Introduction to the Platform”

On Monday, September 24, 2018, Apple is set to release the macOS Mojave upgrade.
Information Systems strongly suggests that you do not upgrade your Wake Forest allocated computer to macOS Mojave at this time. Information Systems staff will be testing this new operating system to determine if it meets our compatibility and performance requirements. We will communicate additional macOS Mojave upgrade information as it becomes available.
If your computer is upgraded to macOS Mojave and exhibits performance issues which inhibit its use, please bring it to the Information Systems Service Desk for a reload of the original operating system as shipped from Apple.
