Fall 2019 Information for Students

We hope you had a great summer! Michigan Tech IT wants to keep you informed with things we’ve updated over the past few months.

AppsAnywhere

We have implemented the use of AppsAnywhere to make lab software available in our Windows Labs. AppsAnywhere makes software available to Windows computers through its web-based Application Catalog. It will improve your computer lab experience by maintaining software availability without allocating system resources for software applications you don’t need. It also allows Michigan Tech IT to efficiently update programs.

System Drives Upgraded to SSDs

We have upgraded system drives on our lab systems from standard hard drives to Solid State Drives (SSDs). Greater than 90% of systems now have SSDs.

Duo “Remember Me” Update

We have implemented changes to profiles that allow Duo’s remember me feature. Selecting the checkbox for Duo’s “Remember me for 30 days” option now works on lab and classroom computers.

Knowledge Base

With the help of our customers, we’ve improved our online support center. Our Knowledge Base (KB) has instant answers to common IT issues like printing, wireless, passwords and more. You can browse articles by category or search by keyword. For more detailed information, visit our blog post on how to use the new KB.

Accessible Technology

Michigan Tech IT wants everyone to have access to the technology resources we provide. We follow accessible technology guidelines and procedures to make sure that individuals with visual, hearing, mobility, cognitive, and other disabilities can use our technologies without barriers. Please visit the Accessible Technology website for more information. If you do encounter a technology barrier, please complete the Barrier Reporting form. If you are a student with a disability, please reach out to Student Disability Services.
