OWL-Space, Rice's collaboration and course management service, is scheduled to be offline several hours this Wednesday and next for annual upgrades in preparation for the start of the new academic year.

OWL-Space will be unavailable during these two system upgrades:

Wednesday, August 6, 5:00 AM - 10:00 AM
Wednesday, August 13, 5:00 AM - 9:00 AM

Check out the new features in the Summer Upgrades page in the OWL-Space web site.  These features will be available after noon on August 6. 

A few of the highlights include:

  • updated look and feel
  • inactive user time out increased to 120 minutes 
  • Peer Review
  • Group assignment submissions
  • drag and drop capability for uploading files via the web interface

The August 13 upgrade focuses on database enhancements and will not affect the user experience.

Training classes for using OWL-Space will be offered after the upgrades are complete.  Watch the OWL-Space site for details.
