Online Forums

Crowdsourcing at its best! Chalk & Wire hosts forums for institutional administrators on a variety of key topics. Power users can easily exchange ideas and resources with others. Discussion groups deal with a variety of topics, including "Cross-campus" and "Year One" implementation approaches and strategies, ways to expand local support for students and faculty, program specific issues, features and functionality. You are not alone—the Chalk & Wire community is here to support you! Chalk & Wire Administrator and Faculty users can access our forums from the main menu link in their Chalk & Wire instance.

Annual Users' Conference

Each year, Chalk & Wire holds a conference hosted by one of our partner institutions. Attendees are the first to find out about new and upcoming features, watch leaders from our administrator community present their most recent innovations, participate in hands-on workshops, and gain knowledge at breakout meetings and various topics. Chalk & Wire’s owners and key managers are available throughout to discuss your emerging needs. This is also a great opportunity to network with other assessment professionals. Registration traditionally opens no later than March 1 of each year—stay tuned for 2016!

In addition to our corporate Twitter account (@chalkandwire) we maintain an account dedicated solely to the support of our users. This fully staffed channel has proven to be one of the most natural places to seek urgent help, especially for students. Got questions? Tweet our Support Team @ChalkSupport.
