Fall Semester 2013 Reminders

Here are a few reminders about IT services for the Fall Semester.reminder-smiley-face

CIS Help Desk
The Help Desk is located in the Learning Studio on the ground floor of Sprague. The hours are 8am-5pm, including lunch hour. We will also be staffing the IT “pop up store” next to the Living Room (part of the cafe) in the Shanahan Center from 11-2 daily.  We have not yet decided how we will manage that space, but instead we are waiting to see what traffic patterns and need will be.  Please send a support request via our request form or send us email at helpdesk@hmc.edu or call us at (909) 607 7777.

Course Mailing Lists
Course mailing lists have been set up. If you have any questions or need help with mailing lists, please contact the Help Desk.

Course Mudd Shots
Course Mudd Shots have been updated for the semester. They are available at http://www.internal.hmc.edu/dir/courses/. The pages are restricted to the HMC network only, so if you are off-campus or on wireless, please connect to the VPN first.

VPN (Virtual Private Network)
Remember the VPN! It is software that allows you to connect to the HMC network as if you were located on campus. Visit http://vpn.claremont.edu and select the group HMC-LDAP.  Log in with the same HMC Credentials you use for Sakai or Odyssey.

Sakai Updates
Fall 2013 courses have been created and populated with students and faculty. The courses are synchronized with the Jenzabar CX student information system three times per day.

Google Apps for Education
Everyone at HMC is entitled to a Google Apps for Education account in our g.hmc.edu domain. Many people have started using the system for email, to share documents or work on them collaboratively.  As a reminder, here are the URLs that will take you directly to the HMC single sign in page and then on to the g.hmc.edu domain (without an intermediate Google login page):
http://docs.g.hmc.edu will take you to your google drive document store.
http://mail.g.hmc.edu will take you to email.
http://calendar.g.hmc.edu will take you to the calendar.
http://sites.g.hmc.edu will take you to google sites.

Learning Studio Classroom 
With the opening of the Shanahan Center, the Fletcher Jones Classroom in the Learning Studio will no longer be used for regularly scheduled classes.  This means that it will be more readily available for one-off workshops, special study sessions, meetings etc. You can view and request reservations for the Fletcher Jones Classroom in the Learning Studio in VEMS  http://emsweb.claremont.edu/HMC/. You can also contact F&M for reservations.

Have a truly great Fall 2013 semester!
