UMA Academic Logistics (UMAAL) for Students


IMPORTANT: Request for Faculty Information for ZOOM in UMS Web Conferencing and Hyflex Classrooms

Dear Instructors,

If you are teaching your classes using the self-service VC-ZOOM connection model in January 2020/Spring 2020 - please fill out this form at your earliest convenience: Information for ZOOM in UMS Web Conferencing and Hyflex Classrooms.

All courses connecting through web conferencing will use the self-service ZOOM connection model in May 2020 and thereafter.

Forms to fill for students: 

What type of support does the UMAAL department provide for students?

Since students taking online classes do not select a class location upon registering for the course, students need to submit Testing Location Registration form to choose a location at which to take their exam(s). Upon completing this form, students will receive a confirmation email and contact information for their location of choice, along with instructions on how to schedule an appointment. Because the availability of space and proctors varies from location to location, it is the student’s responsibility to contact the site or UMAAL staff at least a week prior to each exam, to make arrangements.

A note regarding out-of-state students: Students outside of the state are responsible for finding a local education professional who is willing to proctor exams. Often times, students locate proctors at local libraries, schools, or testing centers. They should provide the necessary details and contact information for the proctor via the Out-of-System Testing form; UMAAL will confirm the submission via email and forward the information to your instructor. After verification, UMAAL will forward the exam to the proctor.

Audio Conferencing: InterCall enables students to collaborate with each other or with their instructor via a toll-free line. Students who are alone may participate in group work with other lone students, and students can form study or project-related groups for independent collaboration. The phone bridge can also be used by faculty for toll-free office hours and tutoring. It may be used any time, during or outside of class time, including weekends, and is accessible from any touch tone telephone in the US. Contact UMAAL to have an account created for you.
