Coming Soon! FirstClass Retirement – May 2018

The project to retire FirstClass in May 2018 continues to progress and is on schedule. The Center for Innovation in Teaching and Learning (CITL) and members of the FirstClass retirement project team are meeting with faculty, departments, and organizations to assist them with the transition to alternative solutions for FirstClass conferences and to migrate FirstClass email to Gmail. New UMaine MyCampus Portal announcement and community bulletin boards that replace FirstClass boards are now open for business. Go here for information about the MyCampus Portal announcement and community boards.

What Can I Do Now?
