3/16/20: ITSS Service Changes

Beginning Monday, March 16, ITSS will suspend most face-to-face services and staff will be working remotely.  We'll continue to provide student support in a variety of ways.

Help Desk & TechCenter

If you need help:

Remote staff will be actively monitoring all Help Desk requests during business hours. Staff will call or email to provide support. In place of on-site visits, we will be utilizing remote support tools such as Bomgar Beyond Trust, Hangouts, or Zoom.

We are no longer able to accept devices for repair from students, but staff may be able to work with you to find other possible repair options.

Assistance with Academic Technologies

ITSS staff can help students troubleshoot:

  • Course-related software installation
  • Canvas, including but not limited to specific processes like uploading or posting assignments
  • Google Apps
  • Other applications or software required and supported by the University for your courses

The fastest way to get help is to contact the ITSS Help Desk ([email protected]) and provide the course name and number, as well as a detailed description of what issue you are having. 

For a general overview of Canvas, please check out the Canvas overview for students video. To find documented help with Google apps, like Google Drive, Google Docs, or Google Forms, you can visit the University’s support page for Google apps
