Notifications from the UNI eLearning System

With the installation of Service Pack 9 (SP9), there is a possibility that you may receive old or outdated notifications from the UNI eLearning System (elearning@uni.edu). This would apply to only those users who had previously setup email notifications.
Service Pack 9 contains numerous patches; some of which improved the collection and distribution of course notifications. We apologize for the confusion of the old/outdated notifications; however, we did not want to clear all notifications prior to installing SP9 and risk deleting legitimate notifications.
