Winter/Spring Aliases - Changes and New Features!
CHANGES TO ALIASES: Read this first!
We're excited to announce that beginning with Winter Term, Course aliases are Google Groups. You, as the instructor, or mentor will be the owner of the groups for your courses or mentees. Your academic aliases will appear in your list on your Google Groups home page: http://groups.google.com/a/eckerd.edu
Course aliases will now have -FA, -SP, or -SU at the end of the alias name. This allows the group to remain active for a time after the semester concludes.
All group addresses will now end in @eckerd.edu - note that campus mailing lists such as faculty-official, students, and its-announce are still @lists.eckerd.edu. Check our documentation @ http://lists.eckerd.edu if you are uncertain where to send a message.
ITS generates the following types of e-mail aliases from Banner for each
These are refreshed daily throughout Drop/Add, so please bear with us
until after the end of Drop/Add if you need to customize your class alias.
An e-mail address for the instructor and students in a course. These
follow the format [Subject Code][Course Number]-[section]-[term], for example:
All the students classified by class year: frosh, sophomores, juniors,
and firstname.lastname@example.org. In addition you can reach the entire student
body with <email@example.com>, and all of campus for general-interest
events using <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
All the students, divided by which Collegium their major falls under.
The name is [collegium]_students, for example:
All students who have declared a given major. In addition, this is
broken down my class year. The formats are [major name, with spaces
replaced by underscores]_major and [major name, with spaces
replaced by underscores]_[classyear], for example:
<email@example.com> and <firstname.lastname@example.org>
All the students mentored by a given faculty member. The format is
[faculty-email]_mentees, for example (if Walter Moore were a mentor):
Aliases for each House and Complex, following the formats [house
name]_house and [complex name]_complex, for
example: <email@example.com> and <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Nu and Omega have a different structure:
omega1, omega2, omega3, omega_complex
nu1_4, nu5_8, nu9_12, nu13_16, nu_complex
