Does it matter what browser I use?
Yes, Chrome and Mozilla Firefox work best.

Why am I having difficulty logging in?

How do I find my course information?

Ensuring Online Accessibility

The Office of Disability Services (ODS) will remain operational during the suspension of residential classes. Access counselors will be available to discuss additional accommodation requests from students. ODS will continue to support faculty in providing enhanced mitigation of course materials to students who require it. For general ODS questions, visit disabilityservices.syr.edu or email disabilityservices@syr.edu.

For specific technology-related questions, please consult your school or college IT support personnel or contact the ITS Service Center. For teaching questions, the Center for Teaching and Learning Excellence also is available to support. Send questions and challenges to CTLE@syr.edu. Your questions (and the ensuing solutions) will inform future updates.
