Through many mentions shared on both the outward facing ODEE and OCIO news blogs over the past several months, it’s fairly common knowledge that Ohio State is adopting Canvas as the new learning management system (LMS) behind Carmen. For those looking for a quick view of where we are with Canvas adoption and where we are headed, check out the graphical timeline on the Canvas Adoption page.
The university has determined that Workday’s Human Capital Management (HCM) and Student system functionality would indeed serve the university well. Our project sponsors, Provost Bruce McPheron and CFO Geoff Chatas, have asked the project team to evaluate what it would take to expand our original Financials focused project to also include Human Resources and Student systems.
To be clear, the final decision on whether to transition to Workday Enterprise won’t be made until after we complete the evaluation of what realignment would look like, so we must simultaneously continue our momentum on the Financials Project.
The project team has initiated a planning phase to evaluate how Ohio State could realign from a Financials-only project to an Enterprise solution. We are leveraging the existing project structures and plan on completing the Realignment Phase by the end of January.
We want to alert Ohio State students to a fraudulent scheme involving a third party offering to pay your Ohio State tuition charges in order to save you money. This information has also been shared with students by Ohio State Enrollment Services.
In this scam, a person asks for your Ohio State username and password to pay your tuition charges by credit card. Once you receive a confirmation of the credit card payment, you are instructed to send the person a wire transfer payment or a check for that amount less 5 percent.
Despite receiving a confirmation of the credit card payment, the payment is fraudulent and will eventually be rejected by the credit card company, leaving you with a balance still due to Ohio State.
Winter is coming! IT Security professionals at every organization know that at some point they could be under some kind of cybersecurity attack.
It’s the need for such preparedness that drives the information security industry and the demand for professionals to work in that field. At Ohio State, we have an Enterprise Security internship program to help us develop up-and-coming security professionals for our community and our institution, to aid in thwarting such attacks.
