Here is the latest WolfWare News to help you make the most effective use of WolfWare.

New and Noteworthy

WolfWare Classic End of Service: We are retiring WolfWare Classic, our homegrown learning management system May 14, 2018. Please visit the WolfWare Classic Transition page for support options to assist with the transition to Moodle and other technologies. Check out our workshops! They’re the best way to get up to speed.

New WolfWare Tools: We released three new tools Fall 2017 as part of the WolfWare enterprise suite. Based on feedback we received from faculty and staff across campus we have made improvements and refinements to the interfaces and functionality. Please consider activating and using these tools when you create your WolfWare space.

  • Top Hat allows you to engage your class with real time polling and quizzing. It’s a great option for interacting with students during class time and making sure they understand key concepts.  
  • The WolfWare Email tool allows you to email your class using a set of convenient email addresses. This tool functions in much the same way as the email lists that are available via WolfWare Classic.
  • The WolfWare WordPress tool allows you to create a public site that can be linked to your course.
