The Technology Services department provides support for all Meredith owned technology equipment that is used by students and employees. Support is limited to wireless connectivity and printing issues on student's personal laptops. Technology Services suggest these recommended local vendors for both hardware and software support on student's personal equipment.
Personal laptops, Windows or Mac, that will be used on the Meredith Campus should be equipped with the following minimum specifications. These minimums are required to support network access and printing issues.
Meredith College supports two different wireless SSIDs. Students and guests with connection issues should contact the Help Desk.
Students are issued a campus card, referred to as camcard, while they are at Meredith College. The camcard can be used both on and off campus for meal plans, debit accounts, access to facilities, restaurants, and campus printing.
Students and parents can add money to the camcard. See Manage MyID.
Meredith College provides pay for print and copy solutions for students. The goal is to ease print costs and contribute to the greening of the campus by reducing wasteful printing. For more information on the different print solutions offered to students see Campus Printing and Copying.
All students are provided with a Google Apps education account. Gmail, one of the components of the suite, is tailored for Meredith to use as its primary email package: For more details visit Google Apps.
Students are issued accounts to Blackboard, a web-based content management system used to share documents, resources, and online tools. Faculty use Blackboard to supplement course materials, such as syllabi, readings, assignments, tests, journals, wikis, blogs, discussion boards, and grade posting. Many student organizations and committees use Blackboard to share materials and communicate securely with one another.
Students are issued accounts to WebAdvisor, a web-based package providing access to personal and college-related information. Students can check grades, register for classes, access MCAlert, and download GData.
New students and students not participating in the now discontinued laptop program are eligible for a free copy of the G-Data Internet Security program for Windows (Mac G-Data is not provided - see Campus Software).
This is a one year renewable license. Students will get the serial number and download site through their Webadvisor accounts.
Atomic Learning is a library of "atom-sized bites" movie tutorials that answer "How do I do that?" questions for both Windows and Mac platforms. Meredith College offers students, parents and family members of students, and employees 24/7 access to Atomic Learning from school and home.
Technology Services manages phone connectivity between the phone switch and the student's room in all residence halls and the apartment building. Students must furnish their own telephone and pay a $50 fee per room for the academic year. Long distance service is available.
Meredith College uses CoursEval, a web-based, online software package. For more information see Course Evaluation.
