*** Information About WINGS Portal Replacement
Course Studio, which is built directly into the current WINGS portal, will not be available in the new Drupal-based portal. Many have felt for some time, including sentiments frequently expressed by students, that consolidation into a single Learning Management System would be beneficial. The Center for Teaching and Learning has a plan to help transition Course Studio users to Pilot. This plan includes the availability of a simplified course home page, along with relevant training and workshops. The CTL will be providing more information on this plan soon.
Currently, CaTS anticipates releasing a beta version of the new WINGS portal in early 2015. Both the existing WINGS portal with Course Studio and the new portal will be available through 2015 Spring Semester. No Course Studio classes will be generated for the 2015 Summer Semester. The old WINGS platform will be retired during the Summer Semester, allowing faculty and anyone with a group in Group Studio to collect any content of value. Once WINGS is retired, the content in Course Studio and Groups will no longer be available. CaTS will soon be announcing a new collaborative platform that can serve as a replacement for WINGS Groups.
Finally, CaTS and CTL will be soliciting feedback from the campus community over the coming months. We hope that you will actively participate, helping us to make this transition as easy as possible for all of you.

New Payment Option for International Students Now Available
I am happy to inform you that Wright State University has recently partnered with peerTransfer Corporation to offer an innovative way to streamline your international tuition payments. Developed by an international student, with the school reconciliation process in mind, peerTransfer offers a simple, secure, and cost-effective method for transferring and processing education payments in foreign currencies.
By offering favorable conversion rates unmatched by larger financial institutions, peerTransfer enables our international students to pay from any country and any bank while saving a significant amount of money on their payments to us. Furthermore, students will be able to track the progress of their payment throughout the transfer process that will reduce incoming phone calls. Because peerTransfer captures all the student information at the time of payment, our students will be alerted when their payment is received. As a school we benefit from this free service because peerTransfer provides an online dashboard that will help us properly reconcile incoming international bank transfers. Furthermore, peerTransfer supplies key student information with each deposit, which allows for quick and easy posting to the appropriate account.
I encourage you to think about ways that peerTransfer can help you with your specific role as we support our international students. You can find the link to the peerTransfer solution on Raider Connect's website or by visiting wright.peertransfer.com
I am pleased to offer this exciting new option that will help our international students save money on payments and simplify the reconciliation process for us. Please let me know if you have any questions.
