Adobe Connect available for faculty, staff

Posted on September 07, 2017

We are excited to inform you that Minnesota State has contracted with Adobe Connect, and you and MSUM students have full access to its many features. Adobe Connect is a web conferencing software that supports online meetings and collaborations, virtual classrooms, break-out groups, and large webinars. It is especially valuable for online programs and courses, but provides many opportunities for those working on campus as well. Here are some ideas of how you might find it useful:

  • Collaborate with colleagues at other institutions or businesses.
  • Allow students to work on team projects, even if they are not all on campus at the same time.
  • Deliver virtual presentation to a remote audience.
  • Hold virtual office hours when you cannot meet in-person.
  • Invite members to meetings who cannot make it to campus, and avoid stalling progress or missing their perspectives.  Read the rest of this entry →

Public Service Loan Forgiveness webinars

Posted on July 17, 2017

Public Service Loan Forgiveness: What All Student Loan Borrowers Need To Know offered by American Student Assistance (ASA)

Wednesday, July 26 | 7:30-8:30 p.m. EST

The Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) program forgives the balance of eligible federal student loans for borrowers who complete 10 years of eligible public service. This includes employees of many non-profit and government employers. Eligibility for this program is not based on what you do, but who your employer is.

We also are offering another session that includes not only PSLF but the Teacher Loan Forgiveness program — which is another federal student loan benefit for teachers who work for a Title 1 school.

Public Service Loan Forgiveness: What Teachers Need To Know

Wednesday, July 19 | 1:30-2:30 p.m. EST

Recent comments from the federal Department of Education, along with our direct student loan borrower experience lead us to believe that many Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) and Teacher Loan Forgiveness eligible borrowers do not have a clear understanding of how these programs work or may not know of its existence at all.
