New Laptops bring new rules and announcements

 

Now that you have laptops, you have responsibility for getting your work done at your convenience.

 

The teacher will use class time to help students with their work and facilitate its completion and submission.  Students will receive credit for work done (and no credit for no work done).

 

Work will be assigned at this portal and you are responsible for checking here and completing assignments made here. 

 

How to activate your HCT email

 

Activate your HCT web mail at this direct link: http://email.hct.ac.ae 

Direct link: https://hct-fs-o365.hct.ac.ae/adfs/ls/?wa=wsignin1.0&wtrealm=urn:federation:MicrosoftOnline&wctx=wa%3Dwsignin1.0%26rpsnv%3D2%26ct%3D1378193162%26rver%3D6.1.6206.0%26wp%3DMBI_KEY%26wreply%3Dhttps:%252F%252Fwww.outlook.com%252Fowa%252F%26id%3D260563%26whr%3Dhct.ac.ae%26CBCXT%3Dout

 

If http://email.hct.ac.ae doesn't work, try the old way, http://webmail.hct.ac.ae

 

Use your HCT ID and password to enter your Outlook Webmail

  • YOU CAN change your password to something you can remember.
  • DO NOT LOSE or forget your password.  It will be difficult to get it re-set.

 

Send an email from your HCT account at http://email.hct.ac.ae  

to vstevens@hct.ac.ae. Please write the following in your mail:

  • Subject: Welcome to N101
  • Body: IDENTIFY yourself and request that I send you the link to the audio file (as in example, below)

Why?

  • HCT mail is essential for communications with your teacher 
    (
    Google is for sharing documents; HCT mail is for email communications)
  • So we will know who has retained the letters given to them (and which you signed for) with password information

How to open PDF files in Adobe

When you open a pdf file it might open in Adobe or in a viewer, depending on the default for your computer

  • If you open it in a view it might not save to your computer and you'll have to connect to the Internet to see it
  • If you want to keep it on your computer and view it offline, you'll have to download the file
  • Also, you will need to open it in Adobe if the pdf file if you want to write on the file
    (for this to work, typewriting must have been enabled in the file)

 

To save the file to your computer, right click on its download link and choose SAVE LINK AS ...

For example, from this wiki, right click on the word DOWNLOAD as shown

 

This will download the file to your computer. However, from your computer, you may have to force Adobe to open it by using OPEN WITH ... To do this, browse to your file's location on your computer and right click on it.

In the pull-down menu, select OPEN WITH and choose Adobe.

If Adobe is not one of the choices, you should:

 

 

You may want to create accounts in these spaces

 

The most useful one: Google 

 

Create an account at Google (if you don't have one already).   

Why?

  • So you can use Google Drive
  • So you can share documents with your teacher and get effective feedback

 

Here are some helpful links for using Google Drive (formerly Google Docs)

 

Prezi

http://prezi.com

 

Slideshare

http://slideshare.net

 

Dropbox

 

Create an account at Dropbox, http://dropbox.com

  • Why?
    • So you can share large files with your teachers and other students
    • So you can keep your personal files in the cloud and access them from any computer 

 

Some people use other services to do the same thing, such at http://box.com 

And you can also use Google Drive, so no need really to create a dropbox account, except that it's a useful service 

 

How can your teacher help you?

Important: When you EMAIL vstevens@hct.ac.ae PLEASE use a SUBJECT

And make sure you identify your name, ID, and section

If you don't I might write you back and ask who you are

And if you write me at any of my personal email addresses I might not see your mail
