Tech updates for fall 2018: Wi-Fi, Canvas and password security
Here's an update of what C&IT is working on for the new 2018 fall semester.
- C&IT is rolling out a new wireless service across campus. In addition to switching to a new provider, we are also updating existing access points and adding additional hardware in areas with connectivity issues. Learn more about connecting to our Wi-Fi at tech.wayne.edu/wireless.
- WSU-SECURE encrypts the data from your computer to the wireless access point and offers the most secure connection for Wayne State students, while WSU-PUBLIC is reserved for guests and visitors. Learn how to connect with your AccessID and password at kb.wayne.edu/113550.
Wayne State is switching from Blackboard to Canvas this fall 2018 semester. After Aug. 31, you won’t be able to access Blackboard at all. If you haven't had a class in Canvas yet, log in at canvas.wayne.edu and check out our Introduction to Canvas course. Have questions?
