Canvas & My.Dunwoody
Dunwoody’s official learning management system (LMS) is Canvas, and you can access it at through LaunchPad. This is your primary classroom tool for your instructor to share content and documents.
My.dunwoody is an online portal of student information and resources. Available through LaunchPad, the portal provides links to check grades; schedule/registration, financial aid and account balance information, enrollment verifications, to a variety of resources, opportunities, and notifications.
Students use My.Dunwoody to register for classes, pay their bill, and view academic information such as grades, attendance, academic plans and unofficial transcripts.
LaunchPad (http://launchpad.dunwoody.edu) is your starting point to access all of Dunwoody systems. LaunchPad is accessible on and off campus. The icons displayed on your LaunchPad page are based on your constituency. There is a mobile app, called Classlink, available in the app market.
Through our campus agreement with Microsoft, Dunwoody has provided access to Office 365 for all students and employees. This automatically updatable, subscription-based software ensures students and employees always have the latest version of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, and more for as long as you are a student or employee and the program continues. At no additional cost, benefits of the software include but are not limited to:
- Install on up to five compatible PCs and Macs, plus five tablets
- 1TB of storage with OneDrive for automatic device syncing
- Create, organize, and collaborate anytime, on your computer, tablet or phone
- Enjoy access to the latest versions of Office applications, features and services
- Use the same programs across all of your personal devices to ensure full file fidelity
Dunwoody provides a secure and convenient way to print called Dunwoody Pharos. The method of printing allows you to use your ID badge to authenticate to print devices and release jobs for printing. You will be able to print to any device that is available for general use, and at this time, there is no direct charge for printing.
IT is responsible for maintaining this system and monitors the printers for errors. Contact the IT Service Desk if you have problems retrieving print jobs. If a printer is malfunctioning, you should notify the IT Service Desk and use another printer on campus.
Canvas & My.Dunwoody
Dunwoody uses Powercampus by Ellucian to maintain all official student records from admission through graduation, and as such, nearly all departments at Dunwoody add information to it. You will access Powercampus through the branded self-service website we call My.Dunwoody, which is available through LaunchPad. The amount of information available depends upon the viewer’s access permissions.
General information such as the College Catalog & Student Handbook, academic success resources, student organizations and financial aid resources are available on My.Dunwoody. Faculty use My.Dunwoody to view their class rosters and record class information such as attendance and grades.
IIS (Integrated Information System) Reports
Dunwoody created IIS, available through LaunchPad, to extend the abilities of core IT systems and provide access to cross-system metrics and reports. A few of the pages you might find useful are the Employee Directory, Faculty Attendance, and Student-at-a-Glance. Assistance for IIS is available at the IT Service Desk.
Dunwoody’s Intranet site (A.K.A., Staff.dunwoody or SharePoint) is a good starting point for finding internal information about the College, share documents or collaborate on projects. You can access it through Launchpad or at https://staff.dunwoody.edu. It also has links to other useful websites such as Paycom for HR and payroll information, Meeting Room Manager for room reservations, Maintenance Request Form, and the Integrated Information System (IIS) reports. Assistance for the Dunwoody Intranet is available at the IT Service Desk.
This report is located in the IIS reports available through LaunchPad. It contains confidential information about students and, per Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) requirements, should only be used to seek pertinent materials regarding a student’s success. Notes are part of the student’s permanent academic record and viewable by nearly every employee in the college. Your notes should be professional notes for academic purposes with clear and concrete information. Assistance for this report is available at the IT Service Desk.
