The Digital Shift: Mobile Devices in Education--API Apologizes for Confusion

The Academic Partnership for Instruction (API), a division of Information Services (IS), would like to apologize for the confusion surrounding The Digital Shift: Mobile Devices in Education.

It has been brought to our attention that the session was advertised in different places as being held on different dates. According to one of the sources the session was to be held this Friday, June 28, in KH 543. Unfortunately we are unable to offer the session at this time, though we do still plan to offer it in the future.

If you have questions about how you might implement the use of mobile devices in your classes for the fall semester, please contact the IS Help Desk at 402.554.4357 or unohelpdesk@unomaha.edu. Again, we apologize for the confusion.

Leave Requests Over July Fourth Holiday

If you plan on using vacation hours around the July Fourth holiday, please pay special attention to requests that fall during that week. Normally you can submit leave for several days within the same week, but this is not the case when a holiday falls within the specific days. Example: if you plan on taking vacation Wednesday, July 3, through Friday, July 5, you will need to submit a leave request for Wednesday, then another request for Friday. Creating the two requests will then accurately post your vacation to your employee record.

Splitting of requested vacation time will also be necessary for Leave Requests spanning the Labor Day holiday weekend in September.

Let us know if you have any questions by emailing helpdesk@nebraska.edu or calling 402.472.7373 or 877.472.7694.
