7. New device? Getting online is about to get easier

For years, the first step to getting online was registering your device’s MAC address on the network via Get Connected or IU’s DHCP service.

As of May 10, MAC registration is no longer required. Instead, users can select "IU StartHere" from the list of available Wi-Fi networks and run the new IU Secure Setup Tool. The program will quickly configure a new user profile and automatically connect the device to IU Secure.

Note: IU Secure Setup Tool is also available via IUware.


8. IUPUI Graduate Student Writing Group

The Graduate Student Writing Group allows for students to set aside a specific time to work on their various writing projects such as term papers, theses, dissertations, grants and publications. We also provide students with opportunities for goal setting and accountability. By setting aside two hours during the week to write, receive feedback and participate in skill building activities with peers, the writing group can help relieve some of the stress of graduate school.


From: Tuesday, May. 19 to Tuesday, Aug. 4
Start Time: 3 p.m.
Location: UL 1170

9. Quality Matters - Applying the QM Rubric Workshop

This workshop will introduce faculty and staff to the QM Rubric and Process, sharing best practices for online course design. The QM Rubric is a research-based set of standards that can be used during the course design process. The QM Process is a peer review process that eventually will review many IU Online courses, with the goal of achieving QM Recognition for mature online courses in the near future.

Location: Campus Center 306

Features that support social learning and global learning (posts, polls, Social Portfolio, Anar Seed Reward System, Global Classmates, engagement analytics, the CN mobile app, etc.) will be demonstrated.


Date: Thursday, Jun. 11
Start Time: 10 a.m.
Location: UL 1130

11. Scientific Writing from the Reader's Perspective with George Gopen

As competition for external funding becomes more challenging, getting one’s scholarly work successfully published is more important than ever. Gopen’s approach is based on a single idea: learning to write for the reader allows the writer to control what readers learn.

This year Gopen will present this workshop on Tuesday, July 28. If you are planning to attend the advanced workshop on Wednesday, July 29 you MUST attend this workshop or have attended one in the years prior.


Date: Tuesday, Jul. 28
Start Time: 8 a.m.
Location: Walther Hall 203/205

12. Oncourse to Canvas Migration Drop-in Session

Faculty are encouraged to drop in any time during these hours and receive assistance moving their Oncourse content to Canvas. As Oncourse now has a complete set of migration tools available, this is an excellent time to make the move to Canvas. Specifically, faculty will be able to migrate Assignments, Tests and Surveys, Forums, Resources (except URLs), and Modules and Lessons over to a practice site in Canvas.


Date: Wednesday, May. 20
