At Loyola, Sakai acts as an electronic extension of classroom teaching. Faculty use Sakai to post course materials online, facilitate discussion between students via electronic message boards, and administer tests and quizzes remotely.
Adobe Connect Meeting is a tool often utilized for online courses. This tool allows instructors to collaborate online in real-time, through a "virtual meeting." This is generally used in a Synchronous course, or any online course that requires everyone to meet at a particular date and time, from a location they choose. Instructors/students can share presentations, files, hold video and/or audio conferences, text chat, etc. Here you will find support for this program.
ResNet is a free, "best effort" technical support available for students. ResNet provides assistance for students attempting to connect to Loyola's network. ResNet service and support includes, but is not limited to help with internet connectivity issues, Microsoft Windows maintenance, Mac and Linux problems, virus and malware removal, wireless device configurations, system file recovery and gaming console registration.
