When we were preparing for working remotely, OIT made it easy to automatically set up the ability to connect to your work computer from home for clients we support. While some University resources such as your email and calendar are readily available on the web at www.outlook.com/uci.edu, other resources are not. Remote Desktop gives you the ability to connect into your campus computer and access your networked resources such as your work desktop, documents, and shared files.
Teaching, learning, and working remotely can be a challenge, particularly without a reliable Internet connection. We have gathered some tips and resources to help you stay connected while you are away from UCI.
Due to social distancing measures, student access to Adobe Creative Cloud in labs and classrooms is not available. Adobe has provided temporary at-home access for impacted students and faculty so that they can continue their work remotely. Please follow the instructions below to enable access to Creative Cloud Desktop Apps on your personal device.
Note: Temporary access to Adobe Creative Cloud has been extended to July 6, 2020. Adobe announced there will be no further extensions after July 6.
A key component of the campus social distancing, remote teaching, and telework strategy is using the powerful remote meeting tool Zoom. Zoom can be used to host and attend remote instruction, hold meetings, and collaborate digitally with colleagues, classmates, and friends. Zoom can be used on any computer, tablet, or mobile phone. Zoom enterprise licensing is available for all UCI faculty, staff, and students.
Microsoft Teams is more than a communications tool. It is also part of the Office 365 suite, so it coordinates seamlessly with your calendar and OneDrive. You can communicate one-on-one or with groups. You can use Teams through your browser or on a desktop or mobile app.
