2 Laptop Orientation Learning Goals How to take care of your laptopWhere to go to have your laptop worked onHow to keep your data safe and your computer running smoothlyUsing Windows 7 with the RHIT networkAccessing the Internet andOther services you may need in your first week at RHITHow to be an effective system administratorThe first three bullets were covered in the first part of Laptop Orientation, in Hatfield Hall.
3 The Help DeskThe RHIT Help Desk is your first point of contact for computing, networking, and telephone problemsFirst floor of Crapo Hall, 8am-5pm Monday-Friday(https://secure.rose-hulman.edu/support/)Phone x8989 (from off-campus: )Most laptop repairs are completed in 3-4 hoursLoaner laptops are available when repairs take longerBring your laptop to the Help Desk for software problems or hardware repairsFor example, a bad hard drive can’t be fixed over the phone or viaYour laptop has 4-year warranty; covered repairs are freeBatteries only have a 1 year warrantyThis warranty starts when the battery was made, not when you receive it.This slide is a review of some of Erik's content. DO NOT spend much time on it.The Help Desk tends to be busiest on Mondays and just before and after breaks.Emphasize that batteries are consumables and that they should probably be replaced once or twice while at Rose.Suggestion: When you're a sophomore, suggest to your parents that a new battery would be a great Christmas present!
4 Document ManagementSave all of your work in the “My Documents” folder in the “Documents” library of your personal accountThis will aid the Help Desk if data recovery is necessaryOrganizing My Documents into subfolders is highly recommendedExamples: courses, recreation, familyYou should frequently make a backup copy of your dataThis can be done easily with the Backup and Restore program found in the Control PanelBurn important files to a CD-R/W or DVD±R/WCopy data to your network space on DFS (discussed later)You might also consider purchasing a USB thumb drive or an external hard drive.Ultimately, you are responsible for safeguarding your dataThis is also covered in the talk by Eric talk about putting everything into the “My Documents” folderNote: External hard drives can be very useful for storing backups as well as music and video filesCritical data should be backed up in two locations (DFS and an external storage device)Please be sure to emphasize to the students how important it is that they make sure that their data is safe.
5 Accounts on your Laptop Two accounts are on your laptopYour Personal AccountAccessed by typing your username and your password into the Windows login boxUsed for everyday work and playYou will spend most of your time in this accountIf you attempt administrative activities (such as software installation) while logged into your user account, a dialog box will ask you to authorize this by typing the .\localmgr username and password.Not including the “.\” will give ‘incorrect username or password’ error.“.\” is shorthand for the name of your computerLocalmgr (Almost never log in to this account)We refer to these as your local or laptop accountsNOTE: all administrative activities can be done logged in on the personal account as long as the student knows the localmgr password. When asked for admin authorization simply type .\localmgr and enter your localmgr password where it asks for it.
6 Windows UpdateWindows Update is a very important part of keeping your computer safe and up-to-dateCritical updates will be installed automatically. Do not disable this feature!Microsoft updates include security and Office updates, but there may be other updates available on the Windows Update siteAutomatic Windows Updates do not require localmgr accessNOTE: Tell students that when they are heading to class, “sleep” may be better than “shut down”, because then they will not get caught by updates being installed.If the computer is off at the scheduled update time, the update will request to be installed at the next opportunity.
7 Microsoft Endpoint / Malware Helps keep your computer safe from Viruses, Trojans, and other MalwareIs scheduled to run a full virus scan daily at 2:00 AMThe time of the scan can be changed (see packet for details)It is strongly recommended that you do not disable the scansThis will help ensure that your computer remains worm and virus-freeMalware is one of the biggest threats to your laptop’s performance, and may lead to theft of your personal informationA comprehensive guide to keeping your computer free of malware can be found in your packetNOTE: If the computer is off at the scheduled time, the scan will happen at the next opportunity.
8 What Software Comes with My Laptop? Microsoft Windows 7 EnterpriseMicrosoft Office 2013 Professional PlusWord, Excel, PowerPoint, Access, Outlook, InfoPath, Publisher, One Note, SharePoint Workspace, LyncAcademic ApplicationsMaple, Working Model, Logger Pro, Matlab, Solid Edge, EclipseMicrosoft EndpointVarious network toolsSecureFX (SFTP), SecureCRT(SSH), etc.Various utility programsWinRAR, Acrobat Reader, KeePass, etc.You are licensed to use this software for as long as you are at Rose.NOTE: Mention that if additional software is required for a class, the instructor should provide instructions on how to install / use the software.Don’t feel a need to go through everything in detail but make sure to highlight the academic applications and OutlookAccess: a program which helps manage databasesInfoPath: an application used to develop XML-based data entry forms;SharePoint Workspace: a desktop application designed for document collaboration;Lync: This will be discussed laterOneNote: A place for storing things you want to keep track of; easy to import from mail, documents, etc.KeePass: A “vault” for storing your passwords so you don’t have to remember/type them, discussed later)WinRAR: File and folder compression/archive program (in ZIP or RAR format).
9 Laptop Graphics Processors The Lenovo w530 has two graphics processorsAutomatically switches between them based on whether it is running on AC power or battery.You can set the laptop to always use a particular processorScreen flashes black for a second when it switches between processors - don’t worry about it.For daily uses (including watching videos, web browsing), there is no discernable difference in picture quality or speed.
10 What Comes With My Laptop? 170 watt AC AdapterNetwork CableLenovo Manuals & Lenovo Recovery CDsID TagUSB MouseNote that this information will be displayed again once they have unpacked their box
11 Unpacking Open the box and carefully take out the laptop Do not pull the laptop out by the packing material as it will come off and the laptop may fall. Grasp the laptop instead.Put packing material back in the box.Attach the ID tag to the laptop bagIf you are missing any parts, notify someone immediatelyThe next slide will list what should be in your laptop boxPut the box and laptop case on the floor next to youSave the box. It will be useful for storagePut your Recovery CD in a safe placeYou might want to go over the info on this slide before allowing them to pull out their laptops.Give them some time between telling them how to take out their laptop and covering the rest of the slide, as they probably won’t be paying attention while they are unpacking the laptop. If you leave Rose-Hulman, this can be used to reinstall original manufacturer-provided software (not RHIT)
12 Verify Box & Backpack Contents 170 watt AC AdapterNetwork CableLenovo Manuals & Lenovo Recovery CDsID TagUSB MouseDo not plug in or turn on your computer yet!**This slide and slide ten should be almost identical**Tell them to put the ID tag on their backpack, give a demonstration if there are some people having trouble.The "no network access" may not apply to fast-track students, but we leave it in so it will be here for Fall. If the slides say this but it is not true, students will not complain!Note for FastTrack Laptop Orientation Instructors: Be sure to let the students know that the backpacks they currently have are temporary ones they can keep. They will be getting better ones later.Note that during Laptop Orientation, you will not have network access to sites outside Rose-Hulman
13 Don’t put these items away LaptopAC AdapterNetwork cableMousePaperworkDO NOT TURN ON YOUR LAPTOP YETMake sure they keep their paperwork out.Remind them that their ID tags should at this point be on their bags, and not put back into the box. Also reiterate that the box and laptop bag should be set on the floor beside them to make more space on the desk.Suggest that they put the things they need to keep in their backpack.
14 Paperwork CompletionCarefully read and sign the paperwork on your desk, using a penA student assistant will collect the white copy labeled “RHIT Copy”; keep the copy labeled “Student Copy” for your personal recordsIf you have any questions about the paperwork or anything else in this presentation, please don’t hesitate to ask

17 Back of Laptop Powered USB Power Powered USB is compatible with regular USB, but can power devices when the computer is off.It is not suggested to use the powered USB port for wireless mouse dongle. Doing so may lead to problems when you are booting up.Powered USBPower
18 Color SensorColor Sensor: You can use this to calibrate colors on your monitor. This is not a thumbprint reader!The main reson thTo calibrate the display only takes a few steps. Just launch the Pantone Color Calibrator software, set the white point and gamma, close the lid, wait a few minutes and you're done.
19 Connect your Laptop DO NOT DO ANYTHING ELSE YET Plug the mouse into a USB connectorConnect the power adapterConnect the network cable to the network portPower outlets and network jacks should be located under your tableDO NOT DO ANYTHING ELSE YETThey can plug their mouse in to any USB connector- the powered one will not have any ill effects on the mouse.
20 Power Up You may now turn your computer on Power Button NOTE: The large black ThinkVantage button doesn’t do anything in regular use. If pressed during startup it will give you the option of where you want to boot from or if you want to enter the bios.Also, point out the keyboard light. Hold down the “Fn” key and press “Space”. This little light is invaluable.Additional functions of keys with an icon below the primary key functionality can be accessed by holding down the Fn key and pressing the key
21 Login to your Personal Account Login to Windows using the username and password for your personal account found on your account slipThis is the name of your computer. In order to access this when switching user, type .\yourusername to get to your personal account on your computer.Make sure that they are at the login screen for their personal account; if not, have them hit ‘switch user’, ‘other user’, and type in “.\username “ for the laptop account. The “.\” is mandatory!NOTE: For now they can ignore Lync and any other popup that comes up when they log on.
22 You will be changing 3 passwords Rose-Hulman Network PasswordPersonal password on your computerlocalmgr password on your computerFirst we considerThe Rose-Hulman password rulesSuggestions for creating good passwords
23 RHIT Network Password Rules RHIT passwords must contain 8 to 20 charactersPasswords must contain at least three of the following four character classes:upper case letterslower case lettersnumbersspecial charactersPasswords cannot contain any of the followingFirst nameLast nameBanner IDUse a different password for your Rose-Hulman account than for any other computer or web site accountWrite a brief summary of the three rules on the board.Use this as an example:Instead of using a password, use a phrase (possibly from a song, movie or book). For example, “Live l0ng & prosper” was a strong passphrase (until the moment we mentioned it here) because of its length and character mix
24 Choosing a Password How to choose a password: Follow the RHIT rules (a summary is on the white board)Don’t use a dictionary word as a password. Use a phrase or abbreviationDon’t use something obvious or personalUse a different password for your Rose-Hulman account than for any other computer or web site accountInstead of using a password, use a phrase (from a song, movie or book?). For example, “Live long & prosper” was a strong passphrase (until we mentioned it here) due to its length and character mixYou may not have a strong password in mind right now, so you can think up a temporary password - you may wish to make a note of it in a safe placeReplace your temporary password with your secure one in the next few days (you cannot change it within the next 24 hours)We will now put these rules into practice as we change our network account password.If you forget your password, visit the Help Desk with your Student IDWrite a brief summary of the rules on the boardStudents are not allowed to include their first or last name or their Banner ID as part of their network password.Don’t reply to any that asks you to update or otherwise provide your password.

44 Wireless Network Access Rose-Hulman provides wireless networking in the academic buildings, SRC, Union, Library, and all Residence HallsYou may only have a personal router if the wireless is disabled.The Rose-Hulman RHIT-1X wireless network is protected by a secure encryption protocolNext, you will use the RHIT-1X wireless networkAlternatively, you can use an Ethernet cable to connect to the network through one of the many ports around campus for a faster connection. Do this when registering for classes or downloading a large file.
45 Using the RHIT-1X Wireless Network 1.) Unplug your Ethernet cable and ensure that your wireless is enabled – to enable, flip the wireless switch on left side of laptop so that the green is showingWireless switchGreen means it is onMake sure that when logging on they only type their username and don’t include .\ or ROSE-HULMAN\ before it.Have them check to see if they can get to various RHIT web pages.Remind them that networking outside RHIT is turned off.3.) If you are asked to log in, type only your username and your new RHIT Network password2.) Look for the wireless network icon in the notification area
46 Registering Your Other Devices on the RHIT network If the device has a web browser:Open the web browserA registration page should show upAccept the conditionsWhen asked for a username and password, enter your username and network passwordOtherwise register the device’s MAC address with IAIT by ing it toGo to netreg.rose-hulman.edu to register online and check bandwidth usage.
47 Getting OnlineSome materials for classes can only be accessed when you are on the network. If you are off campus but need to have network access, connect to Rose-Hulman’s VPN. The instructions are in the “Getting Online” pages of IAIT’s website.Specific instructions for accessing the wifi with a smartphone or tablet are also in IAIT’s Getting Online section.

49 Print and Network Printing \\print is a server that provides easy access to many of the printers on campusNetworked printers are located throughout the Rose-Hulman campusNetwork printers can be added through \\printYou will need to install the printer for your residence hall by accessing \\printWe will do this next
50 Installing a Printer Reconnect your network cable Open the start menu and enter \\print in the “search programs and files” bar, then press the Enter keyA window containing printer names should come upIf you are prompted for a password, enter your network and passwordCheck the box to remember your password, so you don't have to enter it every time you printFind the printer named after your residence hall/floorDouble-click that printer to install itRepeat for the O257 printerRemind them to check “save password”.
51 Setting a Default Printer Open the “Devices and Printers” window from the Start Menu.Right click “Microsoft XPS Document Writer” and select “Set as default printer”Setting Microsoft XPS Document Writer as default will avoid accidently wasting paper because it creates a .xps file rather than sending the document to a printerIn case a student asks, xps files are similar to pdfs.It creates a document exactly as it appears on the screen. For another person to view an xps, they must to have the xps viewer on their computer.The reason for not making a REAL printer the default is to save paper. If a student is in Myers and has their dorm printer as the default., they may print without thinking, then later realize what they have done and print again to a Myers printer.

Some web resources (such as Matlab) are only accessible from on-campus. A VPN connection allows you to connect securely and appear to be on-campus when you are not.
54 Moodle (Course Management) Many instructors will use the Moodle Course Management System to post course materials and communicate with studentsIn Moodle, you canView course materialsCheck your course grades (if your instructor uses Moodle for grades)Communicate with your instructor and other students via discussion forums, chat, surveysSubmit assignments and quizzes electronicallyMost student uses of Moodle are straightforward.Your instructors will tell you if and how they will use Moodle in their classes
55 Logging into MoodleOn the Rose-Hulman home page click the “Intranet" link at the top of the page, then click the Moodle link.Login using your username and network passwordNext we will discuss changing your profile and settings on MoodleYou will get course-specific Moodle information from instructors who use MoodleIf a student cannot log in to Moodle, please write down his/her username and give it to IAIT.
56 Moodle Personal Information You have control over what personal information is available on MoodleClick “My profile settings” -> “Edit profile” under the Settings Block on the left side of the pageFrom this page you can control who can view your addressYou can add information about yourself, and add alternative methods of reaching youYou can also upload your picture. This will help in identifying group members and other students in your courses and enhancing Rose’s sense of communityIf you make any changes, be sure to click the “Update Profile” button at the bottom of the page
58 Other Operating Systems/Drivers It is possible to install an alternate to Windows 7 on your laptop such as LinuxIAIT does not currently support other operating systems and cannot guarantee that they can help with issues that ariseIf you wish to install an alternative OS, consider either dual booting or using a virtual machineYou are responsible for being able to install and run course software if you replace the operating system on your computerOnly install Lenovo-issued device driver updates for the hardware on your laptopNOTE: Emphasize the Lenovo-issued drivers only. Installing drivers through Windows Update is a good way to break things. Students may not know what a driver is. It is the software that provides the interface for a particular hardware device such as a wireless or graphics card.Say that students can look up how to dual boot with the specific OS that they want to add, or how to set up a virtual machine.There is plenty of information online, but most of it is specific to which operating systems that they want to put on their computer.Dual booting:Virtual Machine:
59 RemindersAdditional information is available fromIf you have questions or your laptop has problems, please come by the Help Desk (on the first floor of Crapo Hall, x8989)Read through the packet and try out several of the servicesDon’t forget to replace the temporary password you chose today with a more secure one tomorrowFeel free to ask questions of me or the student assistants
