Two technology resources used by many faculty and staff are undergoing changes this summer: Qualtrics and Google Apps.
Google Drive (and other apps)
This summer ITS is provisioning all faculty and staff with a Google Apps for Education account. If you have created a Google account on your own, using your @canisius.edu address, there will be a procedure you need to perform. Click here to see a description of this procedure.
If you would like to get this process done sooner, Mark Gallimore would be glad to help you do that. If you haven’t created a Google account on your own using your @canisius.edu email address but would like an account that features Google Drive, YouTube or other Google Apps that are linked to your Canisius email, Mark can help with that too!
These resources will be particularly handy to have when attending our upcoming Google Apps for Education Summit on August 4 and 5!
A new version of the Qualtrics survey and data collection toolset is available to Canisius College users. Users can find the option to switch to the new version within Qualtrics via MyCanisius. The old version will no longer be available after Tuesday, June 21. Qualtrics assures us that all old surveys, data and reports, as well as the ability to use or reuse the old surveys in the new interface will be available after the switch to the new version. Active surveys will not be affected when the old version is retired.
Some changes are just cosmetic but Qualtrics decluttered and simplified things, making some features easier to find. There are some extensive changes to results and reporting tools. See this video for details.
You can find tutorials for the new version of Qualtrics here.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Mark Gallimore at email@example.com.
