University IT has given the "all clear" to migrate to CardMail, so lose the GroupWise.
For the past several months, University IT has publicized January 2011 as the time at which UofL students may begin migrating from GroupWise to the new CardMail service. Apparently, IT has experienced some "start-up issues," and is now asking that students who have not already migrated forbear from doing so until University IT announces a particular DATE after which it should be safe to migrate. As soon as the law school's IT department receives notice of that date, we will pass it on via the Daily Docket, our Web site and our Twitter stream.
In the meantime ...
- If you have not already migrated from GroupWise to CardMail, please wait to do so until we get the "all clear" from University IT.
- If you have already migrated to CardMail but have NOT also closed your GroupWise account, please do not close your GroupWise account until we get the "all clear."
- If you have already migrated to CardMail AND have closed your GroupWise account, and are experiencing problems, please just try to endure until University IT resolves its "start-up issues."
CardMail, UofL's new e-mail service for students, is now available. If you missed yesterday's training and information session, all the information you need is on the law school's Student Computing page under the new CardMail section.
University IT has indicated that May 2011, with no specific date, is the deadline for students to migrate from GroupWise to CardMail. Even students graduating this semester are encouraged to migrate, rather than allow their UofL e-mail accounts to close, as doing so will ensure you still have a University account through the summer.
Don't forget the information and training session about CardMail, UofL's new student e-mail service, Thursday, January 6, at 12:15 in room 275. Tasty vittles will be provided. Bring your own beverage.
The School of Law IT staff will offer a CardMail information and training session to all students at 12:15 pm, Thursday, January 6, 2011 in room 275. Tasty vittles will be provided.
CardMail, the new student e-mail system provided by Microsoft Windows Live, will be available to all UofL students beginning in January 2011. CardMail features 10 GB of mail storage, instant messaging, a movie maker, a photo gallery and the 25 GB Windows Sky Drive, which allows you to store documents online and access them anytime, from anywhere.
This morning (Monday, Nov. 22), the following e-mail went out to all students who submitted a valid Exam4 practice test for Fall 2010 finals:
You have received this message because you submitted a valid and timely Exam4 practice test for Fall 2010 final exams. Should you require assistance with Exam4, you are entitled to receive it. Please remember to bring a USB flash drive with you to EVERY exam. If you do not, and you cannot submit your exam electronically, the IT staff will not provide a flash drive for you.
If you submitted an Exam4 practice test and did not receive this e-mail, and believe your practice test was valid, please see Asst. Dean Jim Becker in room 115 as soon as possible.
The deadline for submitting a mandatory practice test, if you wish to use your computer for exams this semester, is TODAY (Friday, November 19, 2010) at 11:59 PM. You must identify yourself with your UofL User Name (e.g., EAPRES01) on the practice test for it to be valid.
Students who used Exam4 for the Professional Responsibility exam Friday, November 5, are all set and do NOT have to submit a second practice test. First-year students must download, install and submit a practice test using the new version of Exam4 now available. The version 1Ls used for the Legal Research final and/or the Torts I mid-term has expired and will not run anymore.
If you've submitted a practice test, you can check to see if it was received by looking at ExamTracker (see link below), which is also displayed this week on the hall monitors.
