Working From Home

 

Systems Updates
  • Students that need Adobe Software check your College email. That's Graphics, Media, Art, and IT only. If using a MAC and getting remote access issues try the MAC remote access file download on the Working from Home page. Check out the latest Teams tips.  Zoom info on the Working from Home page too. Still no info on 40 min lift either.

 

Students

When working from home you will only need to access Teams, Moodle and your E-mail. This will be the primary communication tools used by your teachers. 

Please share documents and files via Teams when you can. Please also use OneDrive and share the file link with your teacher. Please minimise the use of E-mail to send files.

Click here to access the links to .. Your Timetable, ProPortal, Web Email, Office 365.

If you do not have Teams then it can be downloaded here . Teams is also available for your Tablet and Phone. Go to your application store and download it. It’s FREE. Sign in as usual.

Please minimise the use of the My Work link above as you will be unlikely to need to remote access into the college.
