Commitment to delivering high-quality customer service
The HelpDesk is the initial point of contact for all questions, issues, information, or service requests regarding online course support for faculty, students, and campus staff. The HelpDesk staff attempts to resolve inquiries on first contact. If this is not possible, your request is logged into the HelpDesk tracking system for additional SLN staff member(s) to be assigned and assist with resolution.
The HelpDesk service focuses on direct support and assistance for end users on Learning Management Systems (LMS). This includes the following:
"How to" questions for a campus LMS
LMS navigation guidance for campus students and faculty
LMS "log in" or access questions
Ability to view current and past issue resolutions in the HelpDesk ticket tracking system
Initial point of contact for all SLN questions and issues (Service Desk). The HelpDesk attempts to resolve various student & faculty issues. When the HelpDesk is unable to resolve the issue, a service ticket is generated to escalate to:

The SLN Application Services Team for higher level support for application incidents, bugs and queries (Tier 2).
