Ecamps define themselves as ‘un-conferences’ and function within a now well established worldwide model that includes: (i) a flexible free flowing agenda that gets chosen by the participants themselves on the day, (ii) the absence of formal speakers, (ii) a no-fee registration policy, and a democratic expectation that all participants join in the conversation equitably.  

Edcamps encourage people to “choose with their feet” and freely circulate between discussions circles until they find the forums that genuinely engage them.  The events are community based and seek to break down silos and bring together educators, teachers, community and all key stakeholders in reform.  If you have never experienced an Edcamp, there is no time like now to try this remarkable formula. 

This year’s umbrella theme is entitled Tech-ucation and seeks to examine all aspects of the relationship between technology and education.  All conversation topics are welcomed. The daylong event will be held on June 9 from 9:30 am to 3:00 pm in Schurman Market Square, Don and Marion McDougall Hall. Join us at 9:30 for coffee and to discuss the topic you would like to see explored in sessions.

​With the retirement of Novell network on campus, IT Systems and Services has begun disabling the familiar Novell login screen on computers across campus.

What does this mean for you?

When you first turn on your computer, after you press "Ctrl" + "Alt" + "Delete" the screen will look a bit different. If you still have the Novell software enabled, your login screen will have a red "N" and you will see the "Computer logon only" link below the password field.

Once ITSS disables the Novell client, your login screen will no longer have a red "N" and "Log on to:" field should now read "ADDS". You will continue to use the same username and password to login as you always have.

There is no change in functionality to your computer once you have logged in. This only changes the way in which you log-in, and only if your computer still has the legacy Novell client software.

If you have any issues or questions regarding this change, please contact the ITSS Help Desk at 902-566-0465 or helpdesk@upei.ca.
