Updating WIDS on Your Home Computer
Schoolcraft College has selected the WIDS software system to assist with the development of curriculum. The WIDS software system may only be installed by Schoolcraft College employees.
Below you will find the link to update your off-campus version of WIDS. Please be sure to follow the directions carefully and let us know if we can be of assistance.
NOTE: The software installation will not be successful without a previous version of WIDS already installed onto your computer.
Follow these steps to request WIDS for your home computer. You may also contact the Office of Curriculum & Assessment.
Update an Existing Installation of WIDS on Your Home Computer
If you are working in WIDS, save your work to a file by choosing Save WIDS File As… from the File menu. Consider using a naming convention such as:
COURSE FILE EXAMPLE: ACCT 201 WIDS_2010-09-25 Smith or
PROGRAM FILE EXAMPLE: ACCT AAS WIDS_2010-09-25 Smith
Close WIDS. The software must be closed before you can perform the update.
Click this download link and choose Run when prompted. (If your only option is to save the file to your computer, then save the file to your desktop and run it from there by double-clicking the file.)
Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the installation.
A CD installation of WIDS is also available. You may pick up the WIDS software CD from the Office of Curriculum & Assessment.
