End of Semester Wrap-Up

As the Fall semester comes to a close, we know you have a lot of responsibilities at hand before heading into the holiday break, and as such, we’ve compiled a short list of helpful reminders: 

Online@UT (Canvas) Checklist
From downloading grades to limiting course content availability, be sure to review our Canvas Semester End Checklist.
Instructional Support
As you start planning for next semester, remember our Teaching & Learning Technologies team is here to help you. Let us assist you to enhance or redesign your course, provide training on our suite of instructional tools, prepare you for using a technology-enhanced classroom, give recommendations for incorporating new technologies, and more!
Research Support
Involve the Research Computing Support team in all your upcoming research needs. Get help planning your research, acquiring data, analyzing data, reporting results, and more!

LiveOnline@UT (Zoom) Cloud Storage Cleanup
Remember that your Zoom cloud recordings are meant to be temporary. Recordings are set to automatically delete after 120 days. Download any recordings you would like to keep, store them on a local device or drive, such as Microsoft OneDrive or Google Drive, and delete the rest. Review instructions for downloading Zoom cloud recordings.

And finally, pause to reflect on the semester:
  • Take a moment to examine your instructional and research accomplishments. YOU did it!
  • Remember what you do does matter! Your impact on our future is pretty amazing!

Canvas Course Storage

Starting with the Winter-MiniTerm 2023 and Spring 2023 semesters, Canvas course site storage quotas will be downgraded to 1GB. The increase to 4GB at the start of the pandemic was to ensure the quick transition to remote teaching encountered no issues. However, it is important that we return to pre-pandemic levels. We recommend instructors utilize OIT’s recommended options to manage their Canvas course files to remain within the set storage quota.

Enrolling Users in Past Course Sites

As of November 2022, Canvas administrators will no longer be enrolling users in past course sites when requested. In continuing to protect the privacy of our students we are asking that your past course content be exported and shared. Canvas course content can be exported into a Common Cartridge (IMSCC ZIP) file which can then be downloaded and shared with another instructor.

Zoom Quarterly Lifecycle Policy

Zoom announced a Quarterly Lifecycle Policy pertaining to Zoom client versions. The minimum client version enforcement is an effort to ensure that each leader and participant has the most secure and successful online experience with Zoom. This policy went into effect on November 5, 2022. With this in mind, we encourage all users to stay up-to-date with the latest Zoom client version.
