A Look Into The Future Of CourseWorks

In the following academic year, CourseWorks will switch from using Sakai (the CourseWorks we all know and sometimes-not-really love) to Canvas, a learning management system created by Instructure. Some classes have already made the switch, providing students with a glimpse of what is yet to come. While the site itself is pretty, the impending future […]

Remember When The Roster on CourseWorks Was A Thing?

Because it’s that magical time of the year when Bwog wants to make sure we know at least one kid in our massive Russian lit lecture (what? Don’t hate on Tolstoy), we sent Features Editor Alexander Pines to CourseWorks-land in order to find out why your roster page likely has nothing but grey faces. Here’s […]

Join Columbia’s Hottest Social Network

The next Mark Zuckerberg works in CUIT, and he’s created a social network exclusively for Columbia students. This isn’t your grandmother’s Courseworks, with its “graphical log-in.” This is a cutting-edge social network. Every Columbia student now has a profile (just click on “Profile” under “My Workspace”). Here, you can list “Personal Information” (favorite TV shows, […]

Courseworks Turns Ten

If websites were small children, CourseWorks (or, more aptly, CourseWorks’ mom) would be hosting one epic pizza party. Sadly, no website lives forever, and now with a full decade under its belt, Coursework’s newest incarnation is retiring its predecessor. Over 1,200 courses currently use the new CourseWorks, and all University classes will transition by Spring 2013. […]

No, It’s Not Just You

If you’ve been having trouble loading a page or three, you’re not alone as it seems that Columbia’s internet is down just about everywhere.  Which, of course, makes us wonder how you’re reading this in the first place… (Yeah, yeah, smart phones—we know.) No updates yet on the situation, but you can check for the latest […]

Toasting the New Courseworks

Columbia is no stranger to website redesigns, but here comes an overhaul that will actually matter. As CUIT so eloquently phrases it on the CourseWorks home page, this fall “CourseWorks Begins Transition to New CourseWorks.” The current CourseWorks is based on the Prometheus course management system and has been around since 2001—to put that in […]

CCSC: Bureaucracy and Visitors

CCSC holds weekly meetings. Brian Wagner attended one of them last night. This is what he saw. The meeting opened with a discussion of a new committee. Bureaucracy!  The special committee would tackle co-sponsorship requests. At present, groups requesting co-sponsorships from the different student councils schlep to four different meetings to present their case. If a new committee […]

Courseworks: Out To (a Late) Lunch

FYI from CUIT: According to a message posted on the homepage, Courseworks will be down from 8 PM to 12 AM tonight.  Worry not, friends!  The IT powers that be say Courseworks is “working well,” but just needs some tweaking to “increase performance.”  So download that assignment now!  No need to  wait ’til ten o’clock […]

PANIC

No, it’s not just Butler Wi-Fi… Courseworks is down! According to CUIT, they’re doing “emergency work,” but everything will be back to normal at 11pm. So hurry, that’s about 22.5 more music videos you can watch guilt-free! Update, 12:36 AM: Relax and go back to work!  Courseworks is back up.

PSA: Don’t Forget These Things!

It’s near the end of the semester, and the only thing that’s on your mind is laying on the lawns running from the rain. But don’t forget that there are things that need your input! Cough. Courseworks evaluations have been out for a while now, and many of them are due towards the end of […]

Ready, Set, Evaluate!

You probably haven’t been as excited to evaluate your courses as that automated Courseworks student-pestering system thinks you are. Yes, robot, I must have just forgotten to do my evaluations, thanks for the reminder! But at this point you’ve got to start thinking about it, since the deadline for most class evaluations is tonight (presumably) […]

A Snowy, Secular CUIT Slideshowgram

A few tipsters have informed us that CourseWorks is now host to Columbia’s annual nondenominational seasons greeting slideshow! O, happy day. Let’s check out this year’s offering, hm?    A few rather dreary pictures of a snowy Central Park (see above) and then a non-exclamation-marked wish of “happy holidays.” Well, Bwog certainly prefers last year’s […]

ESC, etc.: GS’s Owlnapping?

 Fu Foundation Bureau Chief Sean Zimmermann reports from last night’s ESC meeting. At last night ESC meeting, many changes were afoot within the ESC you know and love. Even though CourseWorks is maybe probably on the outs, the Council’s Director of Technology Kenny Rivera is developing a CourseWorks application for the iPhone—to better check that […]
