Notice a change to a link on the UW-Eau Claire home page? Our UW-Eau Claire option for publishing internal web pages and providing opportunities for a digital workplace has received a facelift and a new name!
Last summer we announced the availability of the new MyBlugold system. That system utilized Microsoft SharePoint 2010 and was designed to:
- Serve as an intranet where campus departments and offices can create their own sites to publish internal information for students and staff and
- Provide a digital workplace where documents can be stored and lists created so cross-functional teams can participate in projects.
This summer we upgraded that system to utilize Microsoft SharePoint 2013 and in the process adopted a new name: Blugold Insider. (Some of you may recognize that name from the past!) We had noticed some confusion between the former MyBlugold and the continuing MyBlugold CampS software. To avoid confusion, we felt that Insider better describes what you’ll find here: everything you need to know as a UW-Eau Claire Blugold Insider! So, to clarify your options:
- MyBlugold CampS continues to deliver the Student Center, Faculty Center, and nearly everything needed for dealing with classes, catalog, financial aid, admissions, and student finances.
- Blugold Insider offers helpful links on the Students and Staff pages (including links to MyBlugold CampS), campus and faculty/staff news, departmental web pages, and digital workplaces.
Stay tuned, as you’ll be seeing more departments setting up sites on Insider and we’ll be adding enhancements throughout the year! For more information check our online help or the major projects description .
