December 5, 2017 from Penn State News:
UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — Next month, WebAccess, the University’s authentication system that protects such systems as University email, Canvas and LionPATH, will launch a redesigned web presence. The change will remove the thumbprint image on the login and service links screen, replacing them with images of Penn Staters from across the University.
All service links and pages currently within WebAccess will remain available and the upgrade will occur during servicing hours later to avoid outages. For further information and updates, follow Penn State IT on Facebook and Twitter (@PennStateIT).
Note: this authentication system also protects Activity Insight (aka Digital Measures).
This form is for Penn State Faculty to grant proxy access to a Penn State Institution, Penn State Center, other interdisciplinary unit within Penn State, or staff proxy access. The requester must have a Penn State access account.
Please, download the form (located here: https://psu.box.com/v/proxyrequestform), fill out the form entirety, then email the completed form to L-AI-Support@lists.psu.edu. The Activity Insight Support team will contact all parties to confirm access has been granted.

Note: This FAQ is for Staff members that are setting up the course(s) in LionPATH, Faculty do not have the ability to make this correction.
The “% Responsibility” data listed in Activity Insight comes from the ‘Load Factor’ field in LionPATH. If ‘Load Factor’ is not completed correctly, or at all, in LionPATH then the % Responsibility data will not appear in Activity Insight.
QUESTION: Where do I find the ‘Load Factor’ field in LionPATH?
ANSWER: Go to ‘Meetings’ (second tab on the top). Scroll down to ‘Meeting Pattern.’ Underneath ‘Meeting Pattern’ is a section called ‘Instructors for Meeting Pattern’ (see Image 1 below).
Image 1: (click on image to make it bigger)
The ‘Instructors for Meeting Pattern’ section has two tabs.
Assignment: The first tab, ‘Assignment,’ is where you enter the name of the instructor(s) and teaching assistant(s) for the course. Each section must have at least ONE PRIMARY INSTRUCTOR assigned with ‘Post Access’ to grades.
Workload: After you enter the Primary Instructor on the Assignment tab click on the second tab called ‘Workload’ (see Image 2 below) and enter the ‘Load Factor’ for each Instructor(s) in the ‘Load Factor’ field. Note that the TOTAL of all instructors must equal 100.00. If a single instructor exists, enter 100.00. If multiple instructors exist, be sure to break out the total as appropriate across all the instructors so that the total of all instructors equals 100.00.

What is ORCiD?
ORCiD provides a persistent digital identifier that distinguishes you from every other researcher. This means that it will be less likely that your name will be confused with another researcher with a similar name, ensuring that you get the credit you deserve for your work. Unlike your work email or identification number, your ORCiD ID follows you when you move. You can include your ORCiD identifier on your publications, grants and even your web page. You can also link your ORCiD ID to other services such as LinkedIn and Researcher ID. Soon you will be able to import your ORCiD publications into Activity Insight! If you have not signed up to receive your ORCiD, please visit the University Libraries’ page http://guides.libraries.psu.edu/orcid
