As the University moves to a policy of social distancing, OIT is prioritizing support to enable remote teaching, learning, and work. Priority services include the Blackboard and Canvas Learning Management Systems, Zoom for online classes and meetings, Jabber for access to phone and online directory information, and Secure Remote Access - Virtual Private Network (VPN).

Canvas is a robust and intuitive online platform for teaching and learning (also known as a Learning Management System or LMS). Starting in the Spring of 2020, it will gradually replace our longstanding LMS, Blackboard. The transition will be complete in the Spring of 2022. https://canvas.princeton.edu/(link is external)
Jabber is a helpful communications tool that enables you to make and take work calls from any location, and from many devices. This means that you can make calls and answer calls to your office extension from your computer, mobile phone, or devices, no matter where you are.
Important! For emergency calls (911), you must use a landline or your mobile phone service.
The Jabber service integrates with the University Directory. So when you and others are away from the office, there is no need to memorize numbers or get each other’s mobile numbers. You simply enter the name of the person you want to call, and Jabber makes the appropriate connection, no matter where.
With Jabber, you can message or chat online with colleagues who are logged in and have made themselves available in Jabber.
