Welcome to the Summer semester to all our instructors and staff! CCAPS Academic Technology and Design is very happy to start a new academic year and continue our efforts to provide technological, media enriched, and pedagogical assistance for CCAPS courses.
As a reminder, ATD opens courses for online/blended instructors one week before the start of the semester to allow students to acclimate to the online environment.
- 1XXX Level Course Mid-term Grade Notifications: Instructors are required to provide in-progress notifications for all 1XXX courses to students who, on the basis of performance to date in the course, appear to be in danger of receiving a grade of D, F, or N. More information on these notifications and on how to submit them can be found on the Academic Support Resources Mid-term grades site.
- Final Date for New ATD Work Requests: The final day to request new ATD work -- including consultations -- for Fall courses is Aug 9, 2022. After this date, all requests require special approval from the ATD Associate Director.
- LinkedIn Learning: UMN has discontinued its contract with LinkedIn Learning. If your course still uses LinkedIn Learning modules as a resource, please reach out to us using the ATD Service Request form so that we can find replacements for inaccessible resource links.
