Student preferences and trends in higher education suggest it is time to re-evaluate maintaining an in-house email system for students.  Only about one third of students use our in-house email solution, with the rest forwarding to their off campus personal e-mail account.    This project is an investigation into the potential use of cloud e-mail services for undergraduate students.  Bruce will provide an update on the project, including CTSC/UCIST support, results of a survey, and next steps.

Kris and Pavol will show the most recent version of the student portal, talk about data integrity, and work in progress. The portal development team is working with CPA on the portal design to ensure it is visually appealing and meets brand standards. Kris will share next steps, including timelines.

This seminar will be webcasted/recorded.
