BlazeVIEW Vista Archive Decommissioning

by Kathy Sundin on April 30, 2014 in Archive, BlazeVIEW Vista

What does this mean?

This means you don’t want to miss out on retrieval of any old course materials housed in BlazeVIEW Vista. VSU transitioned from BlazeVIEW Vista, to BlazeVIEW Desire2Learn (D2L) in May, 2013. Since that time, the BlazeVIEW Vista system has been in archived status and will be completely decommissioned (unavailable for use) on Fri., May 9, 2014.

Remember this?

If yes, and you have course material housed here you want access to you need to email blazeview@valdosta.edu NOW and ask to be granted temporary access! Faculty and students will not have access after 11:59 pm EST on Thurs., May 8, 2014.

What does this NOT mean?

This does not affect any course materials housed in our current BlazeVIEW D2L:

eCore® Tuition Reduction!

by Kathy Sundin on April 28, 2014 in eCore, The Center for eLearning

Beginning in the Fall, 2014 semester eCore® tuition will be dropping from $189 to $169 per credit hour. The tuition rate for Georgia and non-resident students is the same. And, it is the first time since its debut in 1999 that tuition has been reduced.

eCore® is short for electronic core-curriculum and allows University System of Georgia (USG) students the opportunity to complete their first two years of their collegiate careers in an online environment. eCore® courses are taught entirely online, except for the occasional proctored exam. eCore® courses are designed, developed, taught and supported by faculty and staff from the USG. For more information on eCore® please visit the eCore® website.

Visit the Atlanta Journal-Constitution article for more information on the tuition reduction.
