ePortfolio Renamed to Learning Portfolio
- To better align with President Deane's Forward With Integrity initiative, the ePortfolio tool in Avenue to Learn has been renamed Learning Portfolio. For more information about the Learning Portfolio project you can view President Deane's video at http://dailynews.mcmaster.ca/article/an-introduction-to-learning-portfolios/. For users currently using ePortfolio there will be no loss of data or interruption of service, however you may experience inconsistent labeling of the tool as we update the information. We anticipate the changes to be completed by 4:30 today (May 2nd).
Spring/Summer 2013 Course Shell Request Form
- Avenue is seeking your feedback! Every three weeks we'll be posting a poll question featured on the My Home page when you login to Avenue. We hope that you'll take a second to answer the poll question, which will help inform us. If you have any difficulty viewing or accessing the poll contact Avenue support and we'll be happy to help.

My Courses Widget Not Able To Be Hidden
- It has been brought to our attention that the Semesters in the My Courses widget are not remaining hidden when minimized. We have submitted a ticket with Desire2Learn the vendor of Avenue, they have acknowledged the problem and have it on track to be fixed - we have asked for a timeframe for this fix to be in place but we haven't received the answer to that yet. As soon as we know when this will be fixed we'll pass on that information.
The workaround is to use the Minibar at the top of the page, where it says "Select A Course" - you can pin the courses (by clicking the pin next to the name of the course) you use this semester. These pinned courses will stay at the top of the Minibar list until unpinned, allowing you to ignore the My Courses widget entirely.
