PLEASE NOTE: We have had an issue with graded Word documents uploaded by faculty not displaying properly in the Internet Explorer browser. They display with no problems when using the Mozilla Firefox browser. Click here to download the latest version of Mozilla Firefox; this is a free download, and this browser is also available on all of the computers in the IRTC in Scully 210.
ACCESSING HELP WITHIN THE SYSTEM: At any time while working in Chalk & Wire, you can click on the "Help" icon - it looks like a small life preserver - then click on the "User Guide" to get more information.
A NOTE ABOUT FILE SIZE: While you are not limited to a particular file size when uploading documents, your professors will be happier if you upload smaller graphics. (The larger your file, the longer it will take to download it.) You can reduce file sizes with almost any graphics program; if you do not already have one, the makers of Chalk and Wire suggest IrfanView, which can be downloaded for free.
*NEW* FACULTY MEMBERS: Click here to download instructions (with screen shots) for how to set up a separate folder in Outlook for the system-generated Chalk & Wire e-mails (if you do not want them automatically sent to your Inbox).
