Classroom Tech Support
Many UIC classrooms have technology to help instructors present their information. In-classroom support is provided by students recognizable by their LTS/CATE branded t-shirts who are available to assist with basic IT questions, can help in setting up the AV system, or various ed-tech questions such as Echo 360 and Zoom if instructors are having trouble. Learn more on the Classroom Tech Support page.
Service Levels Heading link
Instructors should expect a response soon after it is received, but at least within two business days, unless in-person training/discussion is required. Please allow one week to process special requests such as course copies, course restoration, and course quota increase, Echo360 recording scheduling, etc.
For incidents, instructors can expect a response within four hours, and resolution within two business days, unless escalation to the vendor is required.
Modified Service Levels
Given the high volume of calls received at the beginning of each semester—one week before and two weeks after the start of each term—instructors will experience longer wait times when contacting this team by phone. We recommend reporting a problem via the UIC Help Center if the wait time on the phone is too long.
The LMS Governance Board has approved a modified SLA of three business days for regular requests to be processed during this period. Please plan accordingly.
