Technology News for New Smith Students
Visit the ITS New Students page for important information for new students about your username, password, the Smith Portal, Smith Mail, Moodle, wireless computing, and buying a new computer.
BannerWeb is used for accessing your schedule, your grades, the course evaluations and your narrative evaluations and for doing online registration. Use the Smith Portal to access BannerWeb.
ITS Server Status
You should consult the ITS Server Status when the BannerWeb or other systems appear to "go down." Power outages and other situations beyond the control of the school occur with some frequency during times when our students are using BannerWeb. The server status site is the best way to learn whether a technical problem you are experiencing is the result of one of these emergency situations and when ITS estimates the problem will be resolved.
Moodle is a Web-based course management system used by faculty to post course materials on the web and by students to access those materials. Within Moodle, students and faculty may use a course calendar, announcements, threaded discussions, virtual chat, email, online file exchange, online tutorials and content searching. Not all courses use all Moodle features. When a course is added or dropped through the add/drop process, OAS staff will make the appropriate changes in Moodle.
Google Apps for Education (Smith Mail)
Smith College email uses the Google Apps for Education platform. Smith Mail can be accessed via the Smith website or the Smith Portal using your network username and password.
