1. WebTMA outage scheduled for June 27

On June 27 from 9 p.m. - 12 a.m., the system used campus-wide to submit facilities-related work requests, WebTMA, will be unavailable while the system is upgraded. During the upgrade period, all functions related to the WebTMA system will be affected including iServiceDesk.

While the upgrade should have little impact on the university community, we encourage you to contact Campus Police at 419-372-2346 if you require immediate assistance with facility maintenance during this time.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding the upgrade, please contact Campus Operations using one of the methods listed below.

The Turnitin plagiarism-detection service will be unavailable during a scheduled maintenance period on Tuesday, July 10, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. EDT. An announcement will appear for users within Turnitin in advance of this scheduled maintenance.

Instructors are encouraged to schedule assignment due dates either before or at least several hours after the maintenance period. Students are encouraged to submit Turnitin assignments either before or after the maintenance window.

3. Changes to Turnitin in Canvas Assignments

A new integration is available for Canvas assignments using the Turnitin plagiarism detection service. This change improves the experience for both instructors and students as follows:

Faculty will now access the Turnitin tool on the main assignment creation page when selecting “online” as the submission type in Canvas and “file uploads” as the online entry option. Directions on creating assignments using the new Turnitin can be found here, and a complete instructor guide can be found here.

The current Turnitin external tool function will be retired after Fall 2018. Look for more details to come in the following weeks.


4. Korean class offered this fall!

Korean class offered! Do you listen to K-pop music? Do you know that the Korean people have many unique cultural traditions and a beautiful spoken language? Are you intrigued by the diverse landscapes and cities highlighted during the past Winter Olympic Games held in PyeongChang? Are you interested in learning more about Korean culture and the language? Consider enrolling in GREA 2500-1001 (#76818) “Korean Language and Culture,” meeting Tuesday/Thursday 1:00-2:15 this fall! Questions? Contact World Languages and Cultures at 2-2667 or visit us at 203 Shatzel Hall.


1. Become an Informed-U student facilitator

Are you interested in learning more about how to address sexual violence and misconduct on campus? Do you want to help lead conversation with other students on campus about sexual assault prevention?

BGSU is partnering with Informed-U to help train students to facilitate peer led programs to empower students to discuss and act on sexual assault prevention here at BGSU. If you are interested in learning more and facilitating sessions during Fall 2018 with your peers, please contact Jodi Webb, Associate Vice President of Student Affairs, by email at vpsa@bgsu.edu.
