Computing at Home We use only Microsoft Word. If you use Ms Works, or Word Perfect, or anything else, you must save your file at home to a Word compatible format (. rtf file) if you want to open it here. If your class uses specific software, you can save a lot of money by working here, instead of buying the software for your home computer.
Transporting Data Try to avoid using diskettes. Store files on your U: drive for safety. Copy to a USB drive for file transport, or to a CD to archive many files. You can transport a file by e-mailing it to yourself, but be sure to empty your inbox, sent items, and trash often. Never keep your only copy of anything important on removable media.
Wireless Access For internet browsing using your own wireless laptop. Read your e-mail Do research on the World Wide Web Use web-based course materials You must provide your username and password before you can reach a website. See the Help Sheet about Wireless Access for current information about wireless access points on campus.Help Sheet about Wireless Access
