These are stressful times. UBIT is here to help.
Shifting to distance learning in the middle of a semester is a challenge for most of us. If you are struggling, here are some resources, technology and otherwise, that may help.
If your current computer is not sufficient for distance learning (for example, you don’t have a web cam), here are some resources that may help:
Before you buy a laptop, review UB’s system requirements and recommendations for new computers. For distance learning, a web cam is highly encouraged. See a full list of UB’s recommendations for new laptops.
Students can download UB-supported software, including Microsoft Office apps (Word, Excel, PowerPoint and more), from the UBIT website.
If you are unable to download software on your personal device, you can also connect to a virtual desktop with installed software from a web browser, using My Virtual Public Site.
