Summer 2016 classroom updates

All classrooms and labs

Over the summer IT has reimaged all departmental, and public labs as well as all of the instructor stations in classrooms.  We worked through the administrative coordinators in your area to get the list of any specialized software that needed installed.

In an effort to allow faculty to more easily access classroom technology and have more control over the computers, all public lab, departmental lab, and classroom computers will only be accessible with your Wooster username and password.  When you login with your Wooster credentials on departmental lab computers and the instructor’s stations in classrooms, you will be an admin on the system and be able to customize your experience with the machine, set your defaults and save files without impacting the faculty member following you.  The first login in the device will take longer since it will build a local profile for you, and we suggest that you login on the instructor’s station before the first day of classes.  We believe this change will lead to a more consistent experience.  You will be able to login to all stations in a classroom, but your information will only be saved on the instructor’s station.

Sometimes, when the Macintosh computers wake up there is a red dot by the user name and the text “Network Logins Are Not Available”.  If you encounter this error, please restart the Macintosh to ensure clean login.  The red dot does not always mean that your login will fail, but rebooting does allow clean reconnection to the network.
