WEBINAR: BGSU cloud storage for students
Thursday, September 21, 2017 | 3:00pm
Have you ever forgotten to save a file before shutting down your computer? Found yourself walking to class wishing you could quickly edit your English paper because you suddenly had a great idea? Maybe you have been halfway to class and realized you forgot to grab your homework assignment from your desk. If this sounds like you, then OneDrive file storage is the answer you have been looking for!
BGSU offers the OneDrive file storage solution to all active students, for free! You can access your files anytime, anywhere, with an active WiFi connection.
On Thursday, September 21, 2017 from 3:00-4:00pm, ITS will be hosting a webinar covering everything you need to know about OneDrive to ensure you never lose a file again. During this webinar, Sharon Wiemken, ITS Training and Documentation Specialist, will discuss the importance of cloud storage, the unique features of OneDrive, and even provide a brief demo of the tool.
Over the recent months, BGSU has implemented a significant account security initiative to help protect its users. On March 1, 2017 all BGSU account holders were required to change their passwords, and on March 15, 2017 Two Step Authentication (Duo) protection was placed in front of the MyBGSU portal. These new security measures were in response to a recent increase in compromised university accounts resulting from faculty, staff and students falling for phishing emails and giving away their BGSU username and password.
To increase awareness on the importance of account security and to better explain these recent changes, ITS will be holding a live webinar on Thursday, April 27 at 1:30pm. The webinar will also include information on identifying security risks, a personal security checkup and an overview of future security initiatives.
