Classroom Computers

Tags classrooms

Most of the classrooms on campus are equipped with a PC that is connected to the audio-visual equipment such as a projector and/or sound system. Some of these computers have Windows 7 with a generic shared login that will soon be upgraded to Windows 10 and joined to Azure Active Directory (AAD).

Signing In

In order to sign into Windows 10 on AAD-joined computers, class instructors need to use their e-mail address in the format uwinid@uwindsor.ca and UWin Account password, as shown below.

When you login as an  @uwindsor.ca user, you will be able to access your OneDrive files using the office apps without needing to enter the password again. Therefore, it is important to remember to log out when you are done your lecture or meeting.

People who don't have an active UWin Account, can use the built-in Guest account to sign in.

Windows 10 Shared PC Mode is enabled on these devices. In this mode, only one user can sign into the device at a time. Another user can't sign in until the first user signs out.

Storage

Access to computer's hard drive is disabled with the exception of the "Downloads" folder. Instructors should save their files on either OneDrive or a USB memory stick.

To access files on your OneDrive, launch the Edge browser and click on the third tab.

Software

Each of these computers has the following software installed:

  • Microsoft Office 365 (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access, Outlook, Publisher, Visio, Project, OneDrive, Teams)
  • Skype (consumer version)
  • Edge Web Browser
  • Mozilla Firefox Web Browser
  • Google Chrome Web Browser
  • Adobe Acrobat Reader DC
  • VLC Media Player
  • Bitvise SSH Client
  • IBM SPSS Statistics

Additional software can be installed by request.

Microsoft Teams

Microsoft Teams is a new productivity tool that allows you to communicate in real time ( with persistent chat and audio/video calling) and as a hub to shared documents in your Groups. It is being installed as a standard on all corporate devices on campus.   If you don’t want to use Teams in your classroom for the semester, after you sign in to the computer:

  • sign to Teams when prompted,
  • click your icon in the upper right corner,
  • remove the check mark next to “Auto-start application”.
