December was another busy month for the Jenzabar project team. Much work was done to review data and complete new system configurations. The team’s hard work has been in preparation for the first pass of our data from Datatel Colleague to Jenzabar EX. The team is very excited to see what our data will look like in the system.

From Instructional Technologist Jedidiah Rex...
I am excited to announce some improvements to Moodle. The biggest and most apparent change is that there will be two separate Moodle instances. This change has come about due to more and more groups on campus (departments, committees, etc.) using Moodle to manage administrative responsibilities. I have received multiple requests to separate some of the these courses from the academic courses. This change will also better facilitate Jenzabar integration in the future.

Do you have library items that are due before you’ll return to Beloit?
All materials borrowed from our library, the Beloit Public Library,
UW-Madison Libraries, and through interlibrary loan can be returned to
the Beloit College Library Circulation Desk before you leave campus
for winter break.

Data, data, and more data was the theme for the JET Project team in November. The team was tasked with reviewing over 4000 data fields in the data mapping document provided by Jenzabar. This document spells out where all the data currently in Datatel Colleague will “live” in Jenzabar EX. In January, the team will begin to test EX with actual data.
