WebAdvisor End of Life

Ellucian has previously announced that support for WebAdvisor will soon be ending. Technology Services has set a deadline of December 2020 to transition most mission-critical services to Ellucian’s replacement product called Self-Service (also known as MyGustavus). Many services have already been migrated and still others are being planned. While we will not be able to transition everything to MyGustavus, we expect Ellucian will continue to develop and enhance offerings on the new platform. If you have questions or concerns, please contact the Technology Services Helpline at x6111 or helpline@gustavus.edu.

Instructors can also pull Hoonuit videos directly into their Moodle courses. Just navigate to gustavus.edu/hoonuit and login using your Gustavus credentials. You can search for your desired training via keywords and/or using filters for applications, topics, and categories.
