Other Things to Know

  • The Help Desk should be the first-point of contact on all technical issues for both faculty and students. Additionally, a few help desk personnel have been granted course view-only permissions to support students. The help desk will communicate with you if they needed to view your course in efforts to support a student help request. The Help Desk can be reached at 708-608-4357 (HELP) or via MVConnect.
