Check out some of the video streaming resources and tutoring services offered by our Student Success Center

Dear Faculty and Staff,

Many of you use video streaming services offered through the Student Success Center; the ending digits of the passwords have changed for the spring 2017 semester. The root passwords remain the same but the ending digits are now 201701. Please call the Macon SSC at (478) 471-2057 if you have questions regarding password changes.

Feel free to distribute the following link to your students: http://www.mga.edu/student-success-center/ssc-resources.aspx. If you want me (Paul Johnson) to add new videos or to remove old videos, please let me know. If you do not currently use these resources but are interested in streaming films or other resources for the courses you teach, please contact me to discuss the ways in which the SSC can assist you.

In addition to the streaming mentioned above, the Student Success Center and the Office of Technology Resources have partnered to provide Swank Digital Campus as an academic resource for faculty and students. Streaming through Swank is accessible through PCs, Macs, and handheld devices. MGA has a license for 25 Swank films this academic year. To request a new film for the ’17-’18 academic year, please peruse the Excel file to see the full Swank listing of 22,099 available films, and send your request to the SSC. The SSC lists Swank Digital Campus under “Resources” at the SSC site (http://www.mga.edu/student-success-center). The direct links to Swank Digital Campus are available below:

  • A sample syllabi insert for the tutoring locations at MGA is attached for your use
  • A notification system when your students go to the SSCs for tutoring: Please let me know if you would like your name to be added to the notification system
  • Students can now schedule their own SSC face-to-face and online tutoring sessions through http://www.mga.edu/student-success-center by selecting “Book an Appointment”  (this information is included on the sample syllabi insert for your students)
  • The Peer Tutor Recommendation Form is now digitized at http://www.mga.edu/student-success-center/recommend-a-tutor.aspx
