We are happy to announce that the Course Hub has gained a new feature: profiles for users with the ability to record your name pronunciation in both audio and text. Further detailed in the ITS wiki, this feature will present name pronunciation and preferred pronouns to instructors in the Course Hub’s class-rosters. Likewise, instructor name pronunciation will be shown to students on course-overview pages.
As previously announced, we have now switched WordPress (sites.middlebury.edu and sites.miis.edu) over to using encrypted https:// connections for all browsing.
The Directory will now display students’ Dean assignment in place of their old Commons assignment. This can be viewed in the rightmost column where Department is displayed for faculty and staff records, or on individual listings. The Dean assignment is only shown when using the Directory on campus, over the VPN, or if you log in to the Directory using the “Log In” link at the top right.
