Nexus Fall Term Courses Available

July 27, 2017
Nexus
ITS is pleased to announce that Fall term Nexus course websites are now available to faculty. 
 

IMPORTANT ITEMS TO NOTE

Fall term Nexus course websites are now available to faculty, and students are enrolled. If you do not see an expected course website listed, it may mean that ITS has not received course/enrollment data yet. Please send an email to helpdesk@union.edu with the course title, course ID number, and instructor name and indicate you are missing a course website in Nexus.

Students will not see the course website until you've made it available to them. Please make sure to toggle the visibility of your course website from "hide" to "show" (under Course Administration --> Edit Settings --> General--> Visible) when you are ready for your students to view your site.

Top new features in Nexus (Moodle 3.2).  Nexus was successfully upgraded to version 3.2 over summer 2017. You will notice that Nexus/Moodle 3.2 offers a much cleaner, more streamlined look and feel! The new theme is based on Bootstrap 4, a modern, fully responsive framework to ensure all Nexus users enjoy a good viewing experience no matter what type of computing device they’re using—whether on a desktop computer or a mobile device! 

ITS is offering "Nexus Enhancements" workshops during Fall startup to highlight the top new features in Nexus (Moodle 3.2). No registration necessary–just come by and feel free to bring your lunch! These workshops will provide a broad overview of the exciting new features available in Nexus. Learn more about the top new features in Nexus (Moodle 3.2) on the ITS website at <its.union.edu/documentation/new-features-nexus-32>.

We encourage you to join the "Teach with Nexus" site. In the "Teach with Nexus" site, there are many informative sections with support documentation, visual references, and short video tutorials. In addition, there is a special section devoted to "Universal Design" and "Accessibility" considerations, to help faculty create equal and flexible learning materials that any student, regardless of need, can utilize. If you have a Nexus account, we invite you to simply login and self-enroll here: <nexus.union.edu/course/view.php?id=2528>

For more Nexus documentation, including the Nexus handbook, please visit our Nexus Documentation page on the ITS website. 

If you are new to Nexus and would like training and/or you have any questions, please feel free to contact our Learning Technologies & Environments staff through the ITS Help Desk at helpdesk@union.edu.
