The laptop Pre-Check utility for students begininng a Mobile Computing program in January is now available. Precheck will determine if your hardware and operating system are acceptable for your Mobile Computing program.
Beginning in the January 2014 semester, Mobile Computing students who are in a Windows-based program can use a laptop running Windows 8.1. However, if you are planning on using a laptop with Windows 8.1 there are some potential issues that you should be aware of.
New Mobile Computing students who are starting a program in January– even the most technology savvy – are strongly encouraged to attend one of the Laptop Readiness Sessions that will be held in December and early January. These are short, but important sessions where you will log into Sheridan's network with your laptop and install software required for your courses. Every student who registers and attends will be entered in a draw to win an iPad Mini!
Sheridan staff and students can now schedule ITSC service appointments to deal with technology issues that require a bit more time and effort to address.
