IT at One
Bring Your Own Device
One understands that your laptop or tablet can be a very important tool to facilitate your learning. Therefore we have made it easy for you to use your own laptop or tablet onsite providing a simple one time connection. Once connected you’ll be able to access Moodle, Office 365, the Library catalogue, our Remote Desktop solution and the Internet (as you’d expect we filter your Internet access such as blocking Facebook during lesson times). You can even print from your own device!
The first time you wish to connect your laptop or tablet to the BYOD network you’ll need to pop into the IT Service Desk so that your device can be authorised. Your laptop must be running Windows 7, 8 or 10 and have an up to date antivirus program installed and running. In order to make full use of Office 365 and other One resources you must be running the most recent version of Internet Explorer or Google Chrome.
If you have a MacBook you should be running OS X Yosemite (10.10) or Mavericks (10.9). Antivirus is recommended.
We can provide basic assistance with getting your device connected to our network but unfortunately can’t offer any other support for personal devices.
When you start at One, you’ll be given access to a Microsoft Office 365 account. This gives you access to your email and calendar as well as unlimited online storage through OneDrive. You also get Office 2016 to install on up to five of your personal devices and Office Online apps (Word, Excel, PowerPoint & OneNote). You can add your One email account to your mobile phone or tablet. Just add a Microsoft Exchange account and enter your email address and password. As part of your Office 365 account you’ll be able to download the full version of Microsoft Office to install on up to five devices. Instructions are on Moodle.
