Attention Faculty! Respondus Lockdown Browser Training Webinars

Friday, March 27, 2020

LockDown Browser and Respondus Monitor are used at over 1,500 institutions to prevent cheating during online tests in Blackboard. Join us for a free webinar to learn how these applications can support institutions that may be transitioning to remote learning in the midst of COVID-19.  
 
These 45-minute training sessions will begin with a brief overview of LockDown Browser, a custom browser that prevents digital cheating on computers or devices used for online exams. You’ll then learn about Respondus Monitor, a companion application for LockDown Browser that uses a student’s webcam and powerful AI to deter cheating in non-proctored environments. We’ll also discuss best practices and have a live Q&A period.

We hope to see you there!  Click the link below to join an upcoming session.

Pay Check Announcement

Thursday, March 19, 2020

NSU Work-Study Students

The University is working to process any remaining work-study hours for students who are currently employed for the spring 2020 semester. Due to COVID-19, no checks will be available for pickup from the Cashier’s Office on the scheduled payday.   The banking information that is attached to your student account will be used to setup direct deposit for work-study pay.  Students who do not have direct deposit, may set-up direct deposit information via MyNSU. To ensure work-study pay for the period of February 28 – March 12, 2020, direct deposit must be set-up before Friday, March 20, 2020.

To use the same banking information from your student account record for work-study pay, reply “YES” to this email.  If you do not want the same banking information from your student account record for your pay, reply  “NO” to this email. By responding “NO”, you will receive a paper check.  For students opting to receive a paper check, checks will be mailed to the address shown in payroll once checks are received from the State Treasury Department.  Upon official notification that NSU has returned to normal hours of operation, students that responded “YES” to receiving direct deposit, will be required to complete a direct deposit form for NSU’s records.

All remaining work-study hours will be paid out in a lump sum amount and deposited into your bank account on April 10, 2020. Paper checks will be mailed upon receipt of checks from the State Treasury Department.
