welcome back

It’s the official start to the Fall Semester at the University of Kentucky! Welcome back to those beginning classes today, and to those who have already started and have classes ongoing. A special welcome to those who are new on campus. Here are a few resources that may be helpful to you:

  • The LinkBlue page, where you can link to Exchange, get instructions for changing your password, access SharePoint, and more.
  • The Blackboard wiki, a help page where you will find frequently asked questions, known problems and workarounds, online training, and more.
  • Need help understanding or using blogs, wikis, podcasting and other Web 2.0 tools? Check out Blue 2.0.
  • The Big Blue Network is a new social networking service for UK students, where they can connect to advisers, other students, and others to find out what’s happening on and around campus.
  • Campus television has programming available and schedule time available for instructional programming and student projects, as long as all rights are cleared. Both campus-only and campus-and-community channels are available. See the technology180 blog entry on the updated cable channels for more information. Mike Weikel is the contact.
  • TASC has several specialty areas ready to assist and support instructors. Visit http://www.uky.edu/TASC to find out more about Educational Development, Audio Visual support, Instructional Technology, Distance Learning Programs, and Grahpics & Multimedia.
  • Be sure to check the TASC calendar regularly for training and events.
