WalkMe was brought to campus as a temporary solution to support user adoption of new enterprise systems related to the Enterprise Systems Renewal program. Having served its purpose, and with limits to its application and use, WalkMe is no longer available, as of January 1, 2024.
We will continue to explore more effective solutions for general in-system guidance, but users of Oracle products will be learning more as the Oracle Guided Learning (OGL) product rolls out beginning January 2024. Find more information about OGL in the questions below.
Central and departmental IT service providers will be removing the WalkMe software from university issued and managed workstations beginning in February 2024. You will be notified directly by your IT support team regarding this effort.
Contact your local IT support team if you have questions about the WalkMe browser extension.
