Incoming Students Technology Training

During the spring and summer, you will receive your Dartmouth account, and information that describes New Student Orientation events and general information about technology at Dartmouth. Online information will also describe how to use our technology resources.

Upon your arrival in September, several public computing facilities will be open on a walk-in basis. These include the Student TECH Center (ITC Service Desk), the Computer Store, and public computer terminals around campus.

During the New Student Orientation days "Technology Set-up" sessions will be held for all new students. (More specific information about the timing of these sessions will be included in the orientation information provided for you later in the summer.) In the "Technology Set-up" session, we will get your computer set up and configured for your academic work at Dartmouth, and the necessary core software installed. In addition you will find out about technology resources that are available to you as a member of the Dartmouth community, including: how to register for classes, how to use our communication and collaboration systems, how to use GreenPrint (Dartmouth's campus-wide printing system), how to protect your computer from being attacked, how to access the wireless network, how to obtain and use site-licensed software, how to get discounts on computer hardware and software, how to set up and connect your computer and mobile device to the network, and where to get technology help when you need it.

Online training for some of the standard software applications available at Dartmouth can be found at the Dartmouth LinkedIn Learning site.
