Yesterday we had our first “laptop setup” clinic for faculty/staff. Today we had our scheduled IT training.
So… well… we had a how-to handout, and we had a couple of experienced ISE staff onboard (until Halifax) so we kind of picked it up as we went. My new mac paid off as I was able to help folks with macs.
The students will have essentially no internet. Well, there is onboard email they can use, and 30 or so free internet sites, including the UVA library. They will have access to all the academic databases there. But as for facebook etc. 125 minutes with some smallish max download and the option to purchase more time.
So, get folks mapped to shared folders, onto shipboard email (OWA), onto metered internet (24online), and possibly add some ip printers. Good practice as 739 students get on in a couple of days.
