Week of 9/21-9/25

· Tech Tips, Uncategorized

I want to apologize to everyone who has been trying to contact me this past week.  I am working to catch up on e-mail.  I have been out since Tuesday.  After two doctors and a visit to the emergency room, I seem to be getting better.  While I’m not done with the doctors and medications, I am beginning to be more mobile.  Why I was at the doctors is better left not typed in case someone is eating while reading this.  Some details can be a little unappetizing.

During this past week, there was an issue Eduphoria Aware.  For those of you who were having issues scanning tests and accessing your assessment data, they should now be cleared up.  As great as technology is, it does sometime break.  Those behinds the scenes continue to work hard to prevent and correct these issues.  If you are continuing to have issues, you can submit a help ticket for Eduphoria.  It is now an option within Help Desk.

At a Glance:

Laptop Reimaging

This past summer, the district set out to reimage every computer in the district.  While most desktop computers were reimaged, there are many laptops that were missed.  Most of these laptops are ones that are assigned to a staff member who took it home over the summer.  If you have a computer that was not reimaged, please get a help ticket submitted to Help Desk.  You know it was reimaged if you have the Novell icon on the login screen:


Google Scholar – website

Tired of doing a Google search and coming up with thousands of websites that are full of useless information.  Try Google Scholar.  Google Scholar provides a simple way to broadly search for scholarly literature. From one place, you can search across many disciplines and sources: articles, theses, books, abstracts and court opinions, from academic publishers, professional societies, online repositories, universities and other web sites. Google Scholar helps you find relevant work across the world of scholarly research.
