The E-Learning Commons (Room 3139) has both black and white and colour printers.
The black and white printer is called ‘payperprint’ and the colour printer is called ‘peacock.’
These printers use the Campus Print Accounting System (CPAS), which all Faculty, Staff and Students have accounts on. Prior to printing, you will need to ensure your CPAS account has sufficient funds for the print job. Faculty and Staff can add funds by contacting their department secretary, or at the Education Library. Students can add funds at the Education Library.
To access the printers, you can either log in to one of the computers in the E-Learning Commons, or you can configure your office computer or laptop to connect to the printers directly.
Instructions on how to connect to the printers can be found here.
Over time, your laptop may start to behave oddly or slower than usual. ISS provides a laptop clinic service for Education Faculty, Staff and Grad Students. Make an appointment, drop off your laptop, and we’ll install any necessary updates, perform routine maintenance, remove any unnecessary programs or malware, and have your machine ready to go as soon as possible. In most cases, you’ll have your laptop back the same day you drop it off.
To arrange for a laptop clinic, please contact TACT.
If you have a Blackberry, you can set it up to access your USASK e-mail account. Go to the Blackberry site and enter your Blackberry Username and password. For SaskTel users, your Username is usually firstname.lastname (i.e. bryce.taylor). If you don’t know your Blackberry password, you can use the ‘Forgot Password’ link on Blackberry’s site and have the password sent to your device.
Once you’ve logged in, enter your USASK e-mail address and password and click Next. Wait a few seconds, and then once the screen refreshes, click ‘Enter additional information’. For mail server, enter ‘mail.usask.ca’ and for account name, enter your NSID. Then click Next. Your USASK e-mail should start arriving on your Blackberry within the next 20 minutes.
If you have trouble configuring your device for USASK e-mail, please contact TACT.
All Faculty, Staff and Students at the University of Saskatchewan can install Sophos Anti-Virus on their computer at no cost. Installation instructions can be found here. Note that for Faculty and Staff office computers, Sophos should already be installed. The Sophos icon is located in the corner of the screen – bottom right for Windows machines, top right for Mac machines.
If it isn’t installed, or isn’t updating properly, please contact TACT.
Even with Sophos installed, some malicious programs may still end up on your computer. If your computer ends up infected, there are free tools available that you can use yourself to remove most of these programs. One of the most effective and easy to use programs is MalwareBytes Anti-Malware. Simply download and install the program from here, run it and select Scan. The program will guide you through the rest of the process.
If you suspect your computer is infected with malware, and aren’t comfortable trying to remove it yourself, please contact TACT.
