This system was developed by faculty members who introduced it at their university and currently market the system commercially. This is a robust, web-based, highly customizable system that will be able to provide additional functionality as our needs change and grow. The committee has developed a multi-level plan for training and support for the FlashFolio system with the goal of making this transition as seamless as possible. Representatives from the company will be on campus to assist with the migration of data from one system to another and begin training faculty, staff, and administrators on the system. Faculty data related to personnel actions that is contained within the FolioWeb system will be loaded into the FlashFolio system. Vice President Mahon has also committed several members of his staff to assist with this project. Department chairs, school directors and deans will share relevant information with the faculty and staff in their academic units about various training options, both face-to-face and online.
At this time, next steps include developing a communication framework so there is a smooth flow of current and relevant information to campus leaders and all university personnel. Please visit this site often, as FlashFolio information will be updated and posted at this site. Plans are underway for April 2015 training sessions for university “Super Users”. This group of Super Users is comprised of over 75 campus faculty, staff, and administrators from various colleges and regional campuses. After this training, the Super Users will serve as contacts throughout the university system to address questions and concerns around FlashFolio. The Center for Teaching and Learning will also be providing training during this implementation period. Training sessions for faculty, staff, and administrators will continue from May 2015 – through fall 2015 semester. Individual training sessions will be ongoing. Also, please refer to the FlashFolio FAQs to keep up-to-date on relevant questions and issues.
