Loyola New Orleans selects Ellucian

Loyola University of New Orleans is replacing some of its 30-year-old technology infrastructure with Ellucian’s cloud-based products, the university announced last week. Loyola New Orleans, which serves about 4,500 students, is currently using a heavily customized on-premise system to manage student information and finances, Sarah Kelly, the university’s senior vice president of strategic initiatives, said. The university is working on moving over to the new system already and hope to complete the project in 18-24 months, Kelly said. Emily Bamforth has the details.

Alabama approves $282 million in school aid

Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey signed a bill last week that will supply school systems and universities throughout the state with more than $282 million for one-time purchases on technology upgrades, facility repairs and security measures. The funding, which includes nearly $206 million for K-12 schools and more than $76 million for higher education, was taken from the state’s Advancement and Technology Fund. Though Alabama is expected to get about $4.5 billion for education across three rounds of pandemic relief, this state funding is allowed for several uses not currently permitted by the federal funding, such as transportation and deferred maintenance. Colin Wood has the full story.


Online Learning Consortium partners

Like many other organizational functions, professional development was also forced online by the coronavirus pandemic. Angela Gunder, chief academic officer for the Online Learning Consortium, said that along with developing live streaming for conferences and workshops, the organization wanted to make its recorded content more engaging and interactive, which it plans to do with Panopto’s software. Panopto integrates with videoconferencing tools like Zoom to add features features such as simultaneously displaying video speakers and their presentations, as well as a discussion box for students. When a training session is recorded, it goes into a video content management system, where users can search and filter for videos. Emily has the story.
