Notification - myCoyote Winter 2022 Update

Wednesday, November 16, 2022 - 9:27am

Dear faculty,

On December 12, 2022 there will be an update applied to the myCoyote portal interface. We have not only made a webpage where you can view images of these changes and how they might affect your experience, but we are providing a link for you to login and test-drive the update.

In general, this is an upgrade to our myCoyote platform (from Modo 3 to 4) and will help us eventually implement a more personalized user experience for students, faculty, and staff. Faculty will see a new dropdown menu at the top center of the page that contains commonly visited places such as Canvas and the Faculty Center.

Webpage with Update Information

Test-Drive the Portal Prior to 12/12/2022

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

Thank you,
MPP Signature
